Ferrari Showcases Two Unique Tailor-Made Supercars In Indonesia

Ferrari recently held a gala in the Indonesian capital of Jakarta to celebrate the Lunar New Year. That wouldn’t be much of a big deal to us. The Prancing Horse marque holds special events like this in markets around the world throughout the year.

But on this occasion, the Italian automaker took the opportunity to showcase two unique vehicles.

On hand for the event was a California T inspired by a classic 410 Superamerica. It’s done up in Bianco Italia white, with a black and blue interior with white piping. The convertible California T served as Ferrari’s “entry-level model” (if that term has ever been applied in a more relative sense) until it was replaced by the new Portofino.

Joining the cabrio was a 488 GTB coupe inspired by the FXX Evoluzione experimental track car, done up in Rosso Corsa with Bianco Avus accents, carbon-fiber interior trim, and microfiber seats.

Of course, both are powered by Ferrari’s celebrated 3.9-liter twin-turbo V8 engine – one fitted in the front, the other mounted amidships behind the cockpit – paired to a seven-speed dual-clutch transmission. But there’s more to the ties that bind these two particular supercars together than their powertrains.

These are just two of the 350 special Style Icon editions that Ferrari’s Tailor-Made customization division prepared for the marque’s 70th anniversary. Each of those few hundred was prepared in its own unique theme, showcasing the depth of possibilities available to customers with the financial wherewithal to commission their own from the famous automaker based in Maranello.

The celebration in Jakarta also included a Tang Dynasty-influenced dance routine, a Borongasi performance, a Yee Sang ceremony, and an eight-course meal accompanied by a traditional Chinese orchestra.

  • They actually try to market owner customization program by showing those two cars, the sales of luxury cars has dropped thanks to 150% tax applied to them.

    In Indonesia the customer prefer fast delivery times rather than put on customization program, and the dealers wants to widen the profit margin by introducing this.
