During the 2016 Brussels Motor Show, Ferrari unveiled the latest creation from the exclusive Tailor Made programme, a unique California T which pays homage to the Ferrari 458 GT3 which won the Pro-Am Cup class in the 2015 edition of the 24 Hours of Spa (with “Gimmi” Bruni, Alessandro Pier Guidi, Pasin Lathouras and Stephane Lemeret).
After the international success of the F12berlinetta Tour de France 64 launched at the show last year, Francorchamps Motors, one of Ferrari’s three authorized dealers in Belgium, and the factory’s Tailor Made programme collaborated again to produce another unique car. The California T sports the same livery as the race-winning 458 GT3, with Rosso Corsa paint, along with red, blue and white racing stripes, yellow edges to the matte Argento Nürburgring rims and yellow arrows on the door handles.
The interior is also inspired by the racing car with the use of Alcantara and matte black carbon-fibre trim, including on the steering wheel, which also recalls the 458 GT3. The footwells are in black aluminium while the carpets (including the boot lining) and floor mats are in a black technical material called SuperFabric which is a tough, bullet-proof material featuring a 3D surface finish. The Alcantara-trimmed seats also feature super-grippy fabric inserts.
