Here's Ferrari's latest one-off creation: The Omologata
It's based on the 812 Superfast and it looks mega
Ferrari has always been known to do the occasional one-off car for its most loyal clients and they never disappoint. One which you may remember is the one they made for Eric Clapton called the SP12 EC.
But now, Ferrari has come out with this one based on the 812 Superfast and it looks more aggressive as ever. This is the Omologata and it has been commissioned by one of Ferrari's European customers.
The entire project has taken just over two years to finalise inspired by Ferrari's racing heritage and 'sci-fi and references to modern architecture', whatever that means.
While you may think this is just another 812, you would be very mistaken as the only parts that have been kept from that car are the windscreen and headlights. The point of this car has been described as Ferrari as 'exploiting the proportions of the potent, mid-front layout to deliver a very sleek design defined by smooth volumes and undulating reflections, uplifted by sharp graphics with sparingly distilled surface breaks wherever dictated by aerodynamic functions.'
So as you can see, the entire car has been redesigned to hark back to Ferraris of old and that is precisely the sort of thing we like to see in 2020.
You may be wondering how else this honours Ferrari of old and what makes it so special, well I'll tell you now. On top of the racing livery, the inside has seen some changes too. The electric blue seats for example have been finished in a combination of leather and Jeans Aunde® fabric with 4-point racing harnesses.
There are also metal parts on the dashboard and steering wheel which are finished with the crackled paint effect associated with the great GT racers of the 1950s and 1960s as well as with Ferrari’s engine cam covers. There is also a hammered paint effect often used in cars such as the 250 LM and 250 GTO which you will notice dotted throughout the car.
This truly is a special one-off build and one which is bound to cost millions.
