The Ferrari Homologated – says Google which means approved in Italian – is …
Eh, this is a funny car name. Either way, it’s a one-off built on the 812 Superfast, and it’s undeniably fantastic.
Here is my favorite cut from Press release: Take a big hit of this pomposity and you’ll feel fancy all weekend long:
“Commissioned by a discerning European customer, the latest offering in the Ferrari line of unique models built with coaches is a vibrant evocation of the values that define Ferrari in relation to GT racing: a car that is equally at home on the road as it is. reaching its peak on the track in the hands of a true gentleman driver. “
That’s how I know the car is for a dude, anyway. The actual identity of the order placing is unknown. But it seems that he tasted good, because the product of his request is really something.

And finally, Ferrari has included some internal teasers. I guess only the extremely wealthy individual who bought the thing and his friends can see the entire cockpit now.

A little cursory research reveals that some Ferraris wore that number in the race, but I guess it’s mostly just there because it looks great. If there is a deeper story, you will probably see it in the comments section when this blog has been running for a few hours.
I’m one of those idiots who gets mad at every Ferrari why Ferrari, but I don’t think you have to be obsessed with Italian cars to appreciate the design of this thing. I mean, it’s incredibly amazing. Too bad none of us will ever see him again beyond this series of images.
