Why the Brutally Fast One-Of-A-Kind Ferrari Omologata Took so long to Produce
Darling, its one of a kind.. well based on the 812 Superfast at least..
This week Ferrari announced its new work of art, the Omologata. A one of one GT car based on the Ferrari 812 Superfast. Dreamy, this car is like something out of our dreams. It is a eulogy or tribute to most of Ferraris iconic and historic race cars. The front-engined, V12-powered one-of-a-kind car took over two years to complete. Yes, you heard that right, TWO years. With its clean scooped and more smoothed out lines, people think this is the car Ferrari should have made all along, which leaves the 812 Superfast in the shadows of this stunning beast.
Why did it take so long?
This automobile has already won peoples hearts. But there is one problem, its a one off V12 stunning Grand Tourer. Impossible to ever get, but that still doesn't take away from its beauty and performance. What makes this car even more intriguing is that it is Aluminum, yes not carbon fiber, aluminum. And it as all made by hand, the whole process of coming up with this car, the interesting design and everything else took two years. Now we see why, with new shades of red for the doors and also for the hood, and the vents below the hood that also resemble the ever so stunning 250 GTO, this car is an individual.
Is it good looking?
Is that even a question? With a vintage touch, this car has shown how stunning it really is. Appearing and reveling some beautiful 60s designs. Such as vintage-inspired painted surfaces to reassemble gorgeous old-fashioned cast metal. The Italian company even thought of a wrinkle paint finish for the dash to resemble its famous racing legends from the 1960s. The details in this car are out of this world, thought with ever ounce of knowledge. That's why its so beautiful, the details are so well thought of, with no flaws what so ever. With its aluminum sleek body finish, this car resembles the 812 Superfast, but it is like no other.
Why is this car so important?
Ferrari didn't make this car to be untouchable, or out of any one's league. It wasn't made to be over the top and too flashy. This is art, but its not made to be in a museum. It was made as a tribute, and to look back at its heritage. Not to change the heritage, but to look at it in a different light. It doesn't resemble the past in a overdoing way, only it uses the past to show it in a more modern and exhilarating way.
