Ferrari Prancing Horse Statue

While this Ferrari may not be driveable, it will be the center of attention wherever it’s placed in your home.

What makes a Ferrari a Ferrari? Is it the Italian red paint? It’s certainly the first color to come to mind. Is it the exotic looks? Nothing looks like a Ferrari, that’s for sure. What about the glorious sound from the V8s and V12s? Without them, a Ferrari may as well be a kit car.

But there’s one other thing that makes a Ferrari what it is: the prancing black stallion badge. And if you ever wanted a more “physical” representation of that iconic symbol of Italian excellence, Bring a Trailer has quite the offering on its pages: a sculpture of the famed horse.

The Ferrari prancing horse is made of around 500 pounds of nickel-plated bronze, and stands at over six feet from base to mane. Its current owner received the horse from his brother, who brought it into the family 25 years ago to display next to his Ferraris. It lived in Florida until it moved to California a decade ago, and was on display at the 2013 Monterey Car Week in a Ferrari art exhibition.

If your Ferrari collection needs something extra, or your mini art gallery needs another piece, we can’t think of anything better than this prancing horse.
