Tailor-Made Ferrari 458 Spider
Ferrari will have a handful of its latest supercars on show at this week’s 2013 Goodwood Festival of Speed, but most of them won’t be your ordinary, run-of-the-mill Ferraris but bespoke versions crafted by the automaker’s various personalization departments.
The newest of the bespoke cars is a Ferrari 458 Spider that’s undergone the Tailor-Made Program
. Here, Ferrari ‘tailors’ sit down with customers and make a list of preferred color combinations, equipment and other modifications.
The Tailor-Made Program offers three collections inspired directly by Ferrari’s DNA: Scuderia, Classica and Inedita.
This particular 458 Spider is finished in Ice White Pearl and is accented by Grigio Silverstone racing stripes running the length of the car. The interior is upholstered in a combination of black and gray leather as well as gray Alcantara. The final touch is some pin stripe detailing on the inner carbon fiber trim.
Joining the Tailor-Made Ferrari 458 Spider is a Ferrari FF with a panoramic glass roof. The car also comes with a Grigio FF exterior color, which is complemented by a navy blue semi-aniline leather interior.
Finally, British musician and avid Ferrari collector Eric Clapton will show off his custom SP12 EC
built by Ferrari’s Special Projects department (see gallery below). Only Ferrari’s most loyal customers are offered the opportunity to have their dream Ferrari built. Clapton’s SP12 EC was inspired by the 512 BB, of which the musician has owned three examples.
Sadly, Ferrari’s latest flagship, the LaFerrari
, won’t be on show but plenty of excitement--and noise--should be generated by the presence of an F12 Berlinetta and Spanish racing driver Marc Gene hopping behind the wheel of Scuderia Ferrari’s 2010 Formula One car.
