Golden Ferrari Revival by Pininfarina Uncovered

Our friends over at have uncovered details about a new Pininfarina project dubbed the "Golden Ferrari". Apparently based on the 599 GTB, the car seems to have received inspiration from the Ferrari 330 LMB featured in the short film "Toby Dammit".

Like the one-off P4/5 built for James Glickenhaus, the Golden Ferrari features unique Pininfarina styling with a definite retro flair. The most eye-catching detail is the car's exclusive open top design and a beautiful rear roll bar which fits exquisitely into the rear quarter panels.

Although we can't be certain, the car likely uses the 599's 6.0-liter V12 engine which produces 620 horsepower.

The car was apparently bought by Wal-Mart's CEO, Rob Walton, for an undisclosed amount of money.

It isn't clear if the images below are of a styling mockup or the final vehicle as those headlamps don't exactly look functional and we can't see the interior – let alone the mechanics.

It's definitely got a bit of 612 (headlights) and new California in it towards the front end.

Would be great to see it in another colour....

I like it, I've always loved the rear end of the LMB and LM's, in fact I prefer them to GTO's. Shame it's a one off, they should re-design the 599 and put this into production.

The colour and the wheels are the only things I don't like, but they can be changed very easily.

The back end looks like a 1970's corvette.
