One of 499 I think you will find. Very nice it's just a one off colour choice in parts. The rest is standard aperta there was not much to spec. Except colour

I know of a Scud with the same paint - carried a 335k list.

It does not have that interior which is amazing!

It is not one of one. My 458 Italia is also unique, but it is still a serial production car. Just like this Aperta.

Not sure about the white seats. Certainly not very practical, that interior will age very quickly.

Like the Italian stripe, but the interior color choice? Red calipers would have looked better IMO as well. Strange someone goes to such great lenghts to customize a Ferrari, only to sell it right away. Waste of an allocation spot, but that happens often.

Wish Ferrari would take this into account before giving spots to certain people, but for now it is what it is.

Then also horse on the back is after market, Ferrari won't do that at factory. So some of the spec my guess is non factory. Depends also how much for sale for. Loads of cars now for sale over 550k euros now

Love the interior & the Tricolore on the steering wheel. White interiors very practical in hotter countries, as you don't burn your ass sitting into your seat after the suns made them unbearably warm!!!

Yesterday's history, tomorrow's a mystery, today's a gift.....enjoy every minute!

Perhaps a new thing, but Ferrari will definitely do a black horse on the rear at the factory. Last weekend I saw a Speciale Aperta at HR Owen downstairs in storage waiting to be picked up by a customer. The car had just been delivered from Ferrari. It was a Matte silver color with the black horse and all kinds extra campionario features on the interior.

Maybe I am not a special enough customer for them then.....
Just what I am told, only speced three atelier cars and one Tailor made so far.

Could it be a new thing maybe? Perhaps only on the Speciale Aperta? This can also had some interesting stripes on the steering wheel as well. I have never seen these features in any other Ferrari or even the regular Speciale.

I know they have had sort of a inconsistent policy historically. For example on the 16m they were not allowing deleted stripes. In fact I know of a case where a car was ordered on the condition it be strapless bit in the end the factory delivered with the stripe anyway.

Possibly... but since I asked for my Aperta (see other thread) and they refused, I do think it has been added at a later stage.
Even the Tailor made spec will not allow a black factory horse.
And that is "tailor made" supposedly do as you wish spec.
So who knows.... I just repeat what I know to be fact.

The car had just been prepped for delivery to the ordering customer. There is the possibility that HR Owen actually performed this modification but that seems unlikely. I should have asked...

Paul, suggest you stamp your size 12 feet firmly with your Dealer or at the Factory next time as Shawn from HR Owen, London confirms the matte black Horsey badges they had on their 458A can be ordered with any Ferrari from the factory as an option.
