Ferrari 812 Competizione | Tailor Made

Ferrari collectors now have another opportunity to purchase one of the 999 limited-edition Ferrari 812 Competizione models if they truly wanted one but didn't get one in time. Additionally, it is the only model of the V12-powered supercar to include a hand-drawn livery made by Flavio Manzoni, Ferrari's top designer.

Due to the distinctive livery, including "hand-transfer of the pen strokes of the drawing from which it was born," the design boss refers to his most recent invention as a "sketch car."

Because a skilled automotive designer draws the lines, arrows, and comments, the finished Ferrari is evocative of comic-style automobile graphics but in a more sophisticated way. The 812 Competizione has more drama because of the matte Nero DS (black) strokes on the matte Giallo Tristrato (yellow) bodywork that accentuate its lines and shadows. The black sketches on yellow cardboard frequently used in the first phases of any vehicle's development at the Ferrari Styling Center inspired the colour scheme.

Similar design elements, including black and bright yellow upholstery and some carbon fibre details, can be seen inside. The highlights highlight highlights are the eco-friendly Alcantara upholstery, which is created from 65% recycled polyester, the sketch drawings on the seats, and the SuperFabric floor with a black trefoil pattern.

The one-of-a-kind 812 Competizione shares the same specifications as the other siblings of the 998 coupe and 599 targa, save for its distinctive external and interior design. Compared to the 812 Superfast/GTS, it has a track-focused chassis and a naturally aspirated V12 engine that produces 818 horsepower (610 kW / 829 PS) and 695 Nm (513 lb-ft) of torque.

The unique Ferrari 812 Competizione was unveiled during Monterey Car Week before going up for sale at the Ferrari Gala, which will take place on October 17 in New York City. Proceeds from the auction will benefit a good cause. The Italian company claims that the auction's revenues "will be donated to projects to support young people's education."
