Famed Italian coachbuilder and design house Pininfarina is most widely recognized for designing stunning cars like the Ferrari 599 but the company also dabbles every now and then in the area of coachbuilding special one-off creations for wealthy clients. Back in 2006 we saw the personalized Ferrari 612 P4/5 based on the Enzo supercar and today we have details about the new ‘Golden Ferrari’ based on the 599 GTB.

While the mechanicals may be borrowed from the modern 599, the styling is a not-too-subtle throwback to the lines seen on the Ferrari 330 LMB model that first appeared in the early 1960s.The front of the car also shares some similarities with the 612 Scaglietti, which in itself was a throwback to the front-end designs seen in classic ‘60s Ferrari models.

Perhaps most astonishing, however, is the open-topped design and the classically styled roll-bar, and while Pininfarina has not released much information about the car we expect a large number of resources went into this aspect of the vehicle.

So just where can people see this one-off, 620hp (462kW) throwback to the famous Ferrari 330 LMB? Perhaps next time they pull into a Wal-Mart parking lot, in light of the fact that Wal-Mart's CEO Rob Walton is allegedly the lucky owner of the car.
