Ferrari special edition models launched for 70th anniversary – with gallery
The first livery was inspired by this, the 125 S – Ferrari’s first car
70 different liveries adorn 350 unique Ferraris; examples at the Paris motor show include a Stirling Moss-inspired F12 Berlinetta
The Ferrari LaFerrari Aperta was revealed at the Paris motor show, along with five examples of the 70 different special liveries that have been designed to mark the 70th anniversary of the first Ferrari road car next year.
All 200 LaFerrari Aperta models and all 350 production examples of existing production cars with the 70 liveries were sold before the covers even came off on the Paris show stand. Ferrari has now revealed all of the liveries, inspired by models from its 70-year history. We have chosen our favourites (pictured)
Indeed, Ferrari bosses said that demand for the LaFerrari Aperta alone was “at least three times the production run”.
Ferrari also revealed two of the events that will be held in Italy next year as part of the company’s 70th anniversary as a road car manufacturer. In September, owners of the iconic 250 GTO, which has its 55th anniversary next year, will be invited to Italy. The cars will drive along a pre-planned route through the country before arriving at Ferrari’s Maranello factory, where the cars will be put on display.
In April next year, the owners of 70 ‘iconic’ classic Ferraris will also be invited to take part in a ‘cross-Italy cavalcade’, which will also finish at Maranello.
