At the Shanghai Auto Show, Ferrari has unveiled a particularly stunning bespoke California T. This California T was created especially for this auto show to illustrate how Ferrari’s “Tailor Made” program allows a client to commission a car according to his or her preference.
The bespoke California T is inspired by the actress Ingrid Bergman, known for her “natural beauty and effortless chic”, and the Kennedy family. It is finished in “Grigio Ingrid” body color, named after Ingrid Bergman who chose this very shade of grey for the Ferrari 375 MM Roberto Rossellini gave her in 1954.
The interior on the other hand, is equipped with retro reddish brown leather seats, which are a reference to the Kennedee chair by Jean Marie Massaud, a design that in turn was influenced by the style of America’s “former first family” the Kennedys. Jackie Kennedy in particular was known for her impeccable taste not only in her own dress but in her 1961 redecoration of the White House. Waxed edges on the leather of the central console and the inside of the doors give the car an even more luxurious appearance.
Despite the vintage inspiration, the interiors of this California T still have a contemporary feel. The matte grey metallic details on the dashboard and central console lend a cool modern touch, as do the black Alcantara inserts in the seating. Even the floor mats are noteworthy; they are made of 100% pure virgin wool from New Zealand with a natural jute background, this is carpet normally used in luxury home interior decoration and have an exceptionally plush feel.
According to Ferrari, this bespoke California T shows off the best of Ferrari’s Tailor Made program. It demonstrates how far the Ferrari design team can fulfill your customized dream ride.
