Sexy & 70: Ferrari’s Fiery Tributes to the Greats

 

Words by: JPS for duncan quinn

 


At the Paris Motor Show Ferrari just unveiled an amazing array of cars designed in tribute to some of the most iconic Prancing Horse drivers and owners of all time

in celebration of the legendary marque’s 70th anniversary: Sir Stirling Moss, Michael Schumacher and Steve McQueen. The Stirling is an F12 Berlinetta inspired by the 250 GT Berlinetta SWB in blue and white livery that Moss drove to victory in the 1961 Touring Trophy, while The Schumacher is a red 488 GTB paying homage to the F2003-GA that the famed champion drove to six victories during the F1 driving and constructors’ world championships in 2003. And The Steve McQueen is a California T tribute to the brown 1963 250 GT Berlinetta Lusso that the King of Cool famously adored.

Added to the three cars linked to famous names are two other eye-popping homage rides: The Green Jewel, a 488 Spider in the livery of the 365 P2 campaigned by the David Piper Racing Team, a privateer British club which won the Nine Hours of Kyalami in 1965 and 1966 and the Trophee d’Auvergne at Clermont-Ferrand in 1966; and another 488 Spider inspired by the iconic 1953 Pinin Farina-bodied 375 MM with a three-layer Bianco Italia exterior topped off with a blue racing stripe. Only 70 of the tribute liveries distributed over 350 cars will be available in 2017 from Ferrari’s Tailor Made division – the automotive equivalent of bespoke suits. Count us in.

Words by: JPS for duncan quinn It may surprise you to learn that the most beautiful Porsche ever built is not the 911. Rather its faster older sibling the 904, aka the Carrera GTS, introduced a year after the now iconic coupe. Despite its astonishing success at the track – it clinched a first overall […]
