During the 2016 Brussels Motor Show, Ferrari unveiled the latest creation from the exclusive Tailor Made program, a unique California T which pays homage to the Ferrari 458 GT3 which won the Pro-Am class in the 2015 edition of the 24 Hour of Spa (with “Gimmi” Bruni, Alessandro Pier Guidi, Pasin Lathouras and Stephane Lemeret.
After the international success of the F12berlineta Tour de France 64 launched at the show last year, Francourchamps Motors, one of Ferrari’s three authorized dealers in Belgium, and the factor’s Tailor Mad program collaborated again to produce another unique car. The California T spots the same livery as the race-winning 459 GT3, with Rosso Corsa paint, along with red, blue and white racing stripes, yellow edges to the matte Argento Nurburgring rims and yellow arrows on the door handles.
The interior is also inspired by the racing car with the use of Alcantara and matte black carbon-fibre trim, including on the steering wheel, which also recalls the 458 GT3. The foot wells are in black aluminium while the carpets (including the boot lining) and floor mats are in a black technical material called SuperFabric which is a tough, bullet-proof material featuring a 3D surface finish. The Alcantara-trimmed seats also feature super grippy fabric inserts.
On the Ferrari stand, flanking this unique California T, are a Rosso C0rsa Met 488 Spider, a Giallo Modena 488 GTB with a black roof and a F12berlinetta in a Nero Daytona livery.
