The Ferrari 812 Competizione Tailor Made is one of only 999 ever made, and its exterior design is unlike any other.
The front and inside are both painted a matte yellow, evoking the blank sheet of paper used in the design process.
The one-off vehicle made its premiere at Monterey Car Week, and on October 17, it will be auctioned off at the Ferrari Gala in New York City to raise money for charity.
Having your pals scribble on your face with a permanent marker is one thing, but taking a Sharpie to an exotic sports car that costs $600,000 or more is quite another. Even though the Ferrari 812 Competizione Tailor Made looks like it was involved in a terrible accident, you can be assured that this is not the case.
In its place comes a one-off yellow V-12—powered coupe with extensive black markings that serves as a tribute to the Italian automaker’s design philosophy. For more than a year, Ferrari’s stylists and its Tailor Made customizing division collaborated on this one-of-a-kind 812, which was inspired by Ferrari’s chief design officer, Flavio Manzoni, and the blank-sheet design process.
The finished vehicle is pictured here in matte Giallo Tristrato (yellow) paint with matte Nero DS Sketch detailing. They draw attention to features like the hood’s aero-blade, the car’s side louvres, and the rear panel’s vortex generators. The interior of the 812 is upholstered in Alcantara, and it features design sketches embroidered into the seats and the dashboard for a Sharpie-like look.
The Ferrari 812 Competizione served as inspiration for this piece; for those interested, it is the company’s last naturally aspirated V-12, producing 819 horsepower. Only 999 will be made, and they’ll cost well over $600,000. One of the very few Tailor Made examples exists, and even though it’s practically priceless, it will be auctioned off at the Ferrari Gala on October 17 in New York City to raise money for charity.
