Ferrari put on display five special edition vehicles at the Paris Motor Show to honor its 70th anniversary.
Alongside the jaw-dropping LaFerrari Aperta, Ferrari today unveiled five special editions of its most popular models at the 2016 Paris Motor Show - the 488 GTB, the California T, the 488 Spider (x2), and the F12berlinetta. Each one honours a legend on the track, and features a special paint scheme to match.
Ferrari F12berlinetta "The Stirling"
So let’s go down the line; the Ferrari F12berlinetta “The Stirling,” honours the legendary Stirling Moss, of course, and the 250 GT Berlinetta SWB he was piloting when he took home the 1961 Tourist Trophy. It features a Blu Scuro racing livery complete with a horizontal white stripe on the hood and a number roundel on the door panel.
Ferrari 488GTB "The Schumacher"
The 488GTB “The Schumacher,” pays homage to the legendary success of Michael Schumacher, his iconic F2003-GA F1 car, and the Constructors’ World Championship win he took home in 2003. The car is done up in a simple red paint job with white racing stripes on the roof and side sills, and features special edition badging throughout.
Ferrari California T "The Steve McQueen"
The California T “The Steve McQueen,” takes notes from McQueen’s iconic 1963 250 GT Berlinetta Lusso, which he received as a gift from his wife. It features a brown exterior finish and a camel leather cabin with custom stitching.
Ferrari 488 Spider "The Green Jewel"
The 488 Spider “The Green Jewel,” wears a similar green livery as to the one found on the 365 P2 fielded by the British David Piper Racing Team. That car would go on to win the Nine Hours of Kyalami in both 1965 and 1966 with Piper at the wheel. It lives on once again in this handsome special edition.
Ferrari 488 Spider Tailor Made
And last, but certainly not least, the second 488 Spider on display features ties to the iconic 1953 375 MM bodied by Pininfarina. It wears a three-layer Bianco Italia exterior colour, and of course, does away with its roof.
Each one of these special edition Ferraris are on display for the first time at the Paris Motor Show, and will begin a 60 country world tour in the span of a year to honour the Italian automaker’s racing roots.
