Ferrari 599 GTB Fiorano China Limited Edition - Web Exclusive

Oct 7, 2009

Today, Ferrari announced the creation of a unique one-off 599 GTB Fiorano China Limited Edition, signed by Chinese artist Lu Hao. The work of art will be auctioned away on November 3rd at a special Gala Auction Event in Beijing.

The one-off incorporates a number of the features of the China Limited Edition cars, a very limited series of less than a dozen cars finished in two-tone Rosso Fuoco with silver roof and characterised by unique Chinese design elements.

This one-off model represents an even more exclusive version, thanks to a very special exterior finish which draws inspiration from Ge Kiln porcelain of the Song Dynasty. Lu Hao has blended traditional design elements with Ferrari’s innovative styling to create a truly unique vehicle using a ‘cracked’ glaze pattern which is elegantly colored, with clearly defined cracks etched at different depths.

Only a few hundred pieces of Ge Kiln porcelain exist today, all of which are priceless treasures. The "cracked" glaze pattern has the luster of jade and is often used to symbolize the qualities of a true gentleman. Porcelain is one of China’s most distinctive ancient arts which was brought to the West via the Silk Road thousands of years ago. Using Ge Kin porcelain as the inspiration for the one-off version is a perfect complement to Ferrari’s China Limited Edition Model.

Part of the proceeds generated from the sale of this car will be used on an educational sponsor program aimed to help young Chinese students in the automotive engineering field.

This is just the latest example of charitable events organized by Ferrari in China since Ferrari Maserati Cars International Trading - Shanghai Co. Ltd was set up in ‘04.
