The brand of luxury cars, Ferrari, not only is dedicated to that, luxury cars… the rampant “Cavallino”, its identity signature, has served as inspiration for many other things. It is the case of a chess this brand has presented with the typical colours of Ferrari (as expected), but there is also another feature, which is that the pieces are made of carbon fiber.
This is a true collector’s item for many lovers of the team out there. As we mentioned at the beginning, these pieces that are completely handmade in Italy, are partly made of carbon fiber and perfectly varnished wood. The board is also made of wood and covered with this material, plus fiber glass and enameled metal used to manufacture the Ferrari shield adorning the front.
It also includes 16 pieces of metal to play checkers
Chess figures are painted in red and black colors and the horse figure, how it could not be otherwise, represents the logo of the brand, the famous prancing horse signature.
A complement that this spectacular chess adds are 16 pieces of metal in red and ohter 16 in black to play checkers, which makes this original set include two games in one. This is a nice detail considering how much this Ferrari chess costs, about 1,488 euros (or 2,000 American dollars).
The chess has dimensions of 42 x 42 x 7.2 centimenters, and is available for purchase at the official Ferrari Store, which is a risk for fans and lovers of the team, since it contains countless products related to the brand, so the temptation to buy many more things apart of the chess is irresistible!
