70 Years of Ferrari: Modern Twists on Ferrari Classics

Posted by

In celebration of Ferrari’s 70th anniversary, Ferrari Tailor Made partnered with the designers of Centro Stile to deliver a modern twist on 70 historic Ferrari models. Each livery is created just once for each model of the current Ferrari range, totaling 350 unique models, each equipped with a limited commemorative logo of the 70th anniversary, in addition to an ID plate inscribed with the model that inspired it.

A Modern Sophistication

Although Ferrari is normally associated with sports cars and racing, one of the first Ferrari Grand Tourers was the 1950 195 Inter Touring Coupe. Cutting a striking figure and finished in a unique grey and gold, the 195 Inter Touring Coupe is worthy of a modern tribute.

1aThe Ferrari GTC4 Lusso is the modern day 195 Inter Touring Coupe. To mimic the historical design of the 195 Inter Touring Coupe, this modern Ferrari is finished in Grigio Ingrid 3 Layer paint with silver accent lines around the windows. Complimenting the exterior, the interior is finished in black and cognac colored leather. Seat centers and armrests are finished in Kvadrat Field fabric, developed by the Italian designer Giulio Ridolfo.


The Green Jewel

The next livery is from the second decade of Ferrari’s history and is inspired by the 365 P2 racecar from 1965. With only six built for long-time Ferrari racing customer David Piper, the 365 P2 was painted in the characteristic British Racing Green. Piper and the 365 P2 went on to win the Kyalami 9 Hours in 1965 and 1966, along with the prestigious Trophee d’Auvergne at Clermont-Ferrand in 1966.


The modern representation of the famed 365 P2 is finished in a unique Metallic Green paint, featuring the racing number “25” painted on the doors. The Scuderia Ferrari shields on the front fenders are airbrushed in a larger size, typical of early Ferrari race cars. The interior is very unusual in today’s standards, featuring the driver’s seat in a rich red leather while the rest of the cabin is finished in black leather. This is done to emphasize the driver zone as in the original. The dashboard trim features a hammered effect mixed with carbon fiber to give a sportier look.


The Sunoco

In 1971, American Roger Penske purchased a 512M for endurance racing in the American series. The racecar featured a blue and yellow themed livery with a racing plate bearing the number 6. Despite never winning a single race, the Sunoco 512M is one of the most recognized racing Ferraris.


To pay tribute to the 512M race car, the team at Ferrari Tailor Made came up with a design that featured an exterior in the bright Blu Montecarlo paint. The exterior also featured the famous number 6 on the doors and bonnet. The side air vent areas are painted Giallo Modena and the sill cover is painted in Argento Nürburgring to mimic the bare metal sides of the original race car. The interior is kept simple with a mix of black leather and alcantara fabrics. Yellow stitching is featured throughout the cabin and blue seatbelts complete the blue and yellow theme.


The Magnum PI

In 1980’s, Magnum PI was one of the most popular television shows in the United States. Arguably more famous than the show itself was the Ferrari 308 GTS Tom Selleck drove for his role as Magnum PI. The unforgettable color combination of Ferrari red and a camel interior has set the tone for many Ferraris since.


To reproduce the famous 308 GTS, Ferrari Tailor Made decided that less is more, complete with an exterior in Rosso Corsa Metallic with a Nero DS 1250 roof and wing mirrors and carbon fiber trims in a matte finish. The interior is made up of black leather with tan seats. The upside down stitching pays homage to the style in the original 308 GTS from the TV series.


The Schumacher

With more Formula 1 victories than anyone in history (91), Michael Schumacher is a name anyone in the motorsport community recognizes. The legendary F2003-GA driven by Schumacher in 2003 allowed Ferrari to win its fifth straight constructers championship and gave Schumacher his 6th Drivers’ title, beating Juan Manuel Fangio’s record of 5.


This modern representation of Schumacher’s famous F1 car is finished in Rosso Corsa with the central part of the roof and bottom stripes finished in Bianco Bianco, the white color used exclusively on Ferrari’s Formula 1 cars. The Scuderia Ferrari shields on the front fenders are airbrushed in a larger size, as they were on the original Formula 1 car. The Italian flag is also featured on the lower part of the front fender. The interior is finished in black leather and beige Ultrasuede seats. Carbon fiber trim gives the interior a tough sporty look. The yellow F1 paddles behind the steering wheels further amplify the sportiness of this car.


Plein Air Pleasure

Moving into the twenty first century, Ferrari unveiled the SA Aperta in 2010. This was a limited-edition roadster based on the V12 powered 599 GTB. The car was built to celebrate the 80 years of collaboration between Ferrari and Pininfarina, the famous Italian car design firm and coachbuilder. The bright blue interior and exterior perfectly express the joys of open top driving


The modern livery is finished in Blu Electrico, with the roof and wing mirrors finished in Argento Nürburgring. Completing the exterior are the wheels finished in matte silver. The interior is finished in black leather and the same waterproof Blu Santorini Azure leather as in the inspiration car. The stitching is also done in white, as it was on the original.
