During the 2023 Monterey Car Week held in California, Ferrari unveiled a specially customized 812 Competizione, a product of its Tailor Made personalization program.
The unique feature of this car is a livery that mimics a hand sketch, an original idea conceived by Ferrari’s design head, Flavio Manzoni, at the initial stages of designing a new vehicle.
Ford Mustang Mach-E Summary
This concept bears resemblance to a customized Bugatti Chiron Super Sport, also showcased in Monterey the same week. While the Bugatti was adorned with 45 separate hand-drawn sketches, the livery on the Ferrari was crafted using an airbrushing technique.
The base color for this art is a matte yellow hue called Giallo Tristrato, complemented by a matte black known as Nero DS Sketch for the drawings. The interior follows the same theme, with yellow Alcantara trim juxtaposed with black embroidered design sketches.
Ferrari 812 Competizione Customized by Tailor Made
The use of yellow is symbolic of the yellow cards employed by Ferrari’s designers during the preliminary stages of conceptualizing a new car’s design, a fact pointed out by Ferrari.
Interestingly, this car was not tailored for an individual client but rather by Ferrari North America, which intends to auction the car in New York City on October 17. The funds raised from this sale will be directed towards supporting various educational initiatives.
Like its standard counterparts, the special edition 812 Competizione is driven by a 6.5-liter V-12 engine that produces 789 hp at 8,500 rpm, coupled with a 7-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission. The car is capable of accelerating from 0-62 mph in under three seconds and can reach a maximum speed of 211 mph.
The Competizione and its targa variant, the Competizione A, were introduced in 2021 as the last iterations of the 812 series. Plans for a successor are underway, and testing on public roads may have already begun.
