Yet another one-off Ferrari has been commissioned for a special customer. This time it comes in the shape of the Ferrari Omologata; a methodically redesigned 812 Superfast that draws inspiration from historic GTs of the past. This is the tenth one-off creation since 2009.
Ferrari claims that the Omologata will feel at home both on the road and track thanks to the distinctive lines penned by Ferrari’s design team, headed by Flavio Manzoni. The overall design pays tribute to iconic strands of the Italian manufacturer’s DNA while taking advantage of the 812 Superfast’s architecture. References to sci-fi culture and modern architecture have also been implemented. The project took a little over two years to complete.
Using these proportions, the design team was able to balance an aesthetic expression with regulatory constraints. For this car, an entirely new shade of red has been created for the inspired livery which has been applied to the Magma Red body paint. The only parts that remain from the 812 Superfast are the windscreen and headlamps.
The interior boasts unique metal trims on the dashboard and steering wheel with an unusual paintwork paying tribute to iconic GTs of the 1950s and 60s. The inner door handles and the iconic F1 bridge have a special hammered effect to its paintwork, as seen on legendary models like the 250 LM and 250 GTO. Electric blue seats, finished in a combination of leather and Jeans Aunde fabric with four-point racing harnesses are a highlight of the cabin.
The Omologata uses Ferrari’s naturally aspirated 6,5-litre V12 which delivers 588 kW and 718 N.m, as seen in the 812 Superfast.
