During Monterey Car Week, Ferrari unveiled a commissioned 812 Competizione with a one-of-a-kind paint aesthetic. It is described as the Ferrari Tailor Made 812 Competizione one of 999 limited edition models built as a farewell to the non-hybrid V12 engine. More importantly, this Ferrari looks like a design sketch brought to life.
The custom paintwork represents a blank sheet, a starting point, where all new models start in the Ferrari Style Center led by Flavio Manzoni. At first glance, the car’s matte Giallo Tristrato paint appears to have been vandalized by someone with a Sharpie marker. Upon further inspection, you quickly notice that the black markings are scripted notes and designer input on what the final production model should look like. Shading in air vents, adding notes for where the aero blades should be, and rear louvers, all traced in matte Nero DS.
This theme continues inside. The interior features Ferrari’s new generation Alcantara upholstery made from 65% recycled polyester, first seen in the Purosangue SUV. Embroidered sketch notes are visible throughout the cabin, including the dashboard and yellow seats. According to Ferrari, this car was commissioned by Ferrari North America.
Those wanting to own this Tailor Made 812 Competizione will have a chance to bid on it when it is auctioned off on October 17 at the Ferrari Gala in New York City. Proceeds from the auction will go to charity.
