What Do You Think About Lapo Elkann’s Ferrari 458 Italia ‘Army’?

Besides being accused of faking his own kidnapping among other things, Lapo Elkann is also known for his flashy way of transforming cars, including this Tailor Made Ferrari 458 Italia, which used to be his ride.

Purchased new some 7 years ago, the Italian supercar received a camouflage paint scheme, green wheels, camouflage detailing of the calipers, and the replacement of the Scuderia Shields on the front wings with a couple of peace signs.

The engine bay adds more camouflage, as does the interior, which features special two-tone inserts, dark brown leather, and contrasting rosso cavallinos stitched in the headrests.

The grandson of Gianni Agnelli and Fiat heir held on to his Ferrari 458 Italia until 2016, when it was auctioned to raise money for a foundation that researches HIV/AIDS. With Lapo himself in the attendance, this 458 Italia was sold for €1 million ($1.19 million) during the Cannes Film Festival, and the man that purchased it then is now looking to part ways with it.

RM Sothebys have the exotic machine listed for their ‘Ferrari – Leggenda E Passione’ auction, on September 9, in Modena, Italy, and estimates that it will sell for €250,000-€350,000 ($297,582-$416,615). This is significantly more than the new Ferrari 812 Superfast, which can be had new for less than $300,000, depending on the market.

    I think if they sold Ferraris in the “Young Men’s” section of Walmart, it would come in exactly this color.

    • FUNNY.

      Exactly. Well put!

  • I’M ALWAYS DUMBFOUNDED WHEN I SEE THESE “SUPERCARS” DEFILED LIKE THIS. HOW MANY FERRARI’S OR LAMBORGHINI’S DO WE SEE ON A DAILY BASIS? THEY STAND OUT WHEN THEY LEAVE THE FACTORY NO NEED TO DO THIS.

    Despite being unworthy of the Agnelli name, I always liked Lapo’s style.

    I think it’s shit but if you give it a proper paint job – maybe something in a nice rosso corsa…?

  • Much wrong.

    When he faked his kidnapping to pay his male-escort provided coke binge;
    a lot of people went through a lot of worry to help him when didn’t need any help.
    Not Cool. Douchey maneuver.
    And the fact that he is the heir to FIAT won’t help FCA sales either.
