Bespoke Ferrari California T Pays Tribute To Famous 250 SWB

Ferrari presented a unique California T created by their Tailor Made service at this year’s Techno Classica show.

Inspired by the famous ex-Clapton 250 SWB, this California T is painted in the same livery -Grigio Scuro with Rosso Corsa racing stripes- which was created with the use of a paint sample from the original car in order to achieve almost the exact shade.

Like the original and rather jaw-dropping 250 SWB, the cabin is now dressed in what Ferrari calls ‘Heritage Bourdoux’ leather upholstery, giving the interior a very vintage-y feel and look.

The car also had the latest Handling Speciale option fitted, which includes a series of powertrain upgrades like a stiffer suspension, a new exhaust system and a upgraded software for the double-clutch gearbox in order to change cogs even more swiftly.

The entry-level Ferrari is often overshadowed by its bigger brothers but let’s not forget that this is still a twin-turbo 560PS V8 open-top GT with an Italian soul.
