The Italian automaker has unveiled their celebratory anniversary logo at the 2016 Paris Auto Show, meant to represent 70 years of history while also pointing to the brand’s future. Naturally, the logo will only be used on a small number of cars.
The first to get it will be the LaFerrari Aperta hypercar, Ferrari’s latest limited-edition special series, which also represents a unique model in terms of technology and styling.
Another huge announcement is the 70 different individual liveries created by the Tailor Made atelier, which are to be used to create a maximum of 350 unique cars – where each can be used once on one example of five models from the current Ferrari range.
Naturally, some if these liveries made it to Paris so that people could admire the likes of the “Stirling” F12berlinetta, “Schumacher” 488 GTB, “Steve McQueen” California T, the “Green Jewel” 488 Spider or the 1953 375 MM-based 488 Spider featuring a three-layer Bianco Italia exterior.
To start things off, the F12berlinetta “Stirling” is of course inspired by the Stirling Moss-driven 250 GT Berlinetta SWB, a former winner of the 1961 Tourist Trophy. The F12 sets itself apart by sporting a Blue Scuro racing livery which comes with its own horizontal white stripe and number roundel.
“The Schumacher” on the other hand, which is a 488 GTB, is an homage to the F2003-GA F1 car that took home the Constructors’ title back in 2003 with Michael Schumacher behind the wheel.
As for the California T “Steve McQueen” and 488 Spider “Green Jewel”, the former is inspired by the 1963 250 GT Berlinetta lusso, while the 488 features the signature green livery of a British David Piper Racing team 365 P2.
