Ferrari didn’t just bring the GTC4Lusso T and LaFerrari Aperta to this year’s Paris Motor Show. Next year is 70 years since the first Ferrari road-car, so to celebrate the brand has had its Tailor Made department think up 70 liveries inspired by history’s most iconic Ferraris.
Supposedly it’ll build five of each, for a total of 350 cars.
Five of these liveries are on display at the Paris show. The Blue F12 is called “The Stirling”, and is inspired by the 250GT SWB in which Stirling Moss won the 1961 RAC TT. The red 488 GTB, meanwhile, is called “The Schumacher”. Predictably, it’s inspired by one of the F1 driver’s seven F1 World Championship-winning F1 cars.
The two Spiders are “The Green Jewel” and “The Spider”. What inspired the latter is a mystery to us, but the former – the most striking of the five liveries revealed so far – apes the 365s raced by David Piper in the mid-Sixties. And the California? Its spec is identical to Steve McQueen’s old 250GT Berlinetta Lusso.
