The Ferrari Omologata is A Work of Art As Much As It is A Supercar

Ferrari Omologata dailycarblog.com

This is the new Ferrari Omologata a one-off coachbuilt creation commissioned by a discerning European client. It is built upon an 800bhp V12 812 Superfast and is finished a specially formulated paint. The Rosso Magma finish and racing livery harks back Ferrari’s great GT tradition spanning seven decades of history. The Ferrari Omologata project took a little over two years to complete from the initial presentation of sketches, starting with images that covered a variety of inspirations, from racing heritage to sci-fi and references to modern architecture.

The idea from the onset was to create a futuristic design with distinctive elements reinterpreted in a fresh manner to provide potential for a timeless shape that is certain to leave a lasting impression. The 812 Superfast donor car retains only the windscreen and headlights as existing bodywork elements. For the designers, the trickiest aspect was striking the ideal balance between expressiveness and restraint: the Frerrai Omologata had to ooze street presence whilst maintaining a very pure formal language.

The interior is equally bespoke with the electric blue seats, finished in a combination of leather and Jeans Aunde® fabric with 4-point racing harnesses, stand out against a full black interior. In the absence of rear quarter lights and screen, the atmosphere in the cabin is purposeful, reminiscent of a bygone era.

Metal parts on the dashboard and steering wheel are finished with the crackled paint effect associated with the great GT racers of the 1950s and 1960s as well as with Ferrari’s engine cam covers. A hammered paint effect so often used in cars such as the 250 LM and 250 GTO finds its way on details such as the inner door handles and on the Ferrari F1 bridge.

A fitting one-off exercise, the Omologata manages to encompass a range of subtle Ferrari signature design. With a nod to the company’s early past, the Ferrari Omolagata bodywork was hand-crafted from aluminum. This one-off Ferrari will become an instant collector’s car, more work of art as much as it is Ferrari. Cost to make? in total, we estimate at least $1.5m
