Ferrari enthusiasts were treated to a once-in-a-lifetime event at Casa Ferrari during Monterey Car Week. This exclusive gathering, also broadcast via live streaming, witnessed the debut of an extraordinary creation: the Ferrari 812 Competizione, a bespoke marvel that has taken the concept of personalization to new heights. This Tailor-Made masterpiece, inspired by the blank canvas that initiates every Ferrari design journey, is a tribute to the brand’s commitment to pushing boundaries and redefining automotive excellence.
The Ferrari 812 Competizione, a rarity among rarities with only 999 units in existence, is a member of a distinguished and highly exclusive series tailored for collectors and connoisseurs of the most exhilarating twelve-cylinder engines in the world. What sets this particular variant apart is its embodiment of the Tailor-Made philosophy. The essence of customization, Tailor Made encompasses the distinctive craftsmanship that Ferrari enthusiasts have come to adore, elevating every detail into an art form.
Central to this individuality is a commemorative plaque that graces the car’s interior, bearing witness to the unique creative process that birthed this masterpiece. The inspiration behind this Tailor Made 812 Competizione emanates from the heart of Ferrari’s creative hub – the Ferrari Styling Centre. For every new model, this hallowed ground initiates its design process with a blank sheet, a testament to the limitless potential of artistic exploration.
The journey to transform a remarkable vehicle into an exceptional, bespoke marvel spanned over a year. Collaborative synergy between the Styling Centre and the Tailor Made team paved the way for groundbreaking craftsmanship techniques, culminating in a symphony of original patterns and designs. The challenge? Balancing precise technical execution with the ethereal spark of creativity flowing from the mind of Ferrari’s Chief Design Officer, Flavio Manzoni.
The Ferrari 812 Competizione, bedecked in the iconic matte Giallo Tristrato, embraces the soul of Ferrari’s design ethos. Delicate lines rendered in matte Nero DS Sketch encapsulate the sporty elegance that defines the 812 Competizione. Noteworthy features such as the carbon fibre blade that cuts across the bonnet and the time-honored louvres on the sides pay homage to Ferrari’s storied tradition.
Intriguingly, the interior mirrors this ethos. A revolutionary Alcantara®, composed of 65 percent recycled polyester and introduced through the Ferrari Purosangue, envelops the cockpit. Unique design sketches have been intricately embroidered onto this new-generation Alcantara®, departing from Ferrari’s leather-based motifs. Completing the interior’s opulence is the black trilobal Superfabric®, adorning the carpet and rear wall of the passenger compartment.
This Tailor Made 812 Competizione, commissioned by Ferrari North America, will be the star of the show at the Ferrari Gala in New York City. On October 17th, the culmination of an exclusive event will pave the way for this masterpiece’s charitable auction. All proceeds will flow into educational support projects, a testament to Ferrari’s commitment to bettering communities and fostering growth.
For the discerning few, the 812 Competizione transcends mere transportation; it’s a symphony of performance and elegance. Melding cutting-edge technological concepts with Ferrari’s rich heritage, this limited edition marvel offers drivers an unparalleled experience. The independent four-wheel steering system endows it with unparalleled agility, while the 830-hp V12 engine ensures a crescendo of power and the signature Maranello symphony.
