Tailor Made Ferrari’s are all about details: and this latest homage to the 250 GTO Tour de France racer has some stunning tweaks.
A matching yellow stripe across the hood of this front-engine supercar perfectly matches the style shown 50 years ago on the Tour de France-winning 250 GTO. The other incredible detail that is a surprise and delight?
F40-matching blue ‘superfabric’ seats!
This shows how a few tweaks in the build process in Modena can make a future concours-winner out of any 2015 Ferrari.

Stunning Tailor Made car unveiled at Brussels Show
Maranello, 22 January – The 2015 Dream Cars Show in Brussels, where the Ferrari stand featured both the new California T and four-seater, four-wheel drive FF, also provides the perfect showcase for one of the latest creations from Maranello’s Tailor Made bespoke personalisation programme. The F12berlinetta in question, displayed by Ferrari and Francorchamps Motors, pays homage to the Ecurie Francorchamps team, specifically the 250 GTO in which Lucien Bianchi and Georges Berger won the 1964 Tour de France.
The V12 sports an Argento Auteil body with a triple-layer cross-stripe on its bonnet that is a modern take on the original Modena yellow used by the Ecurie Francorchamps. The interiors are mostly black with tobacco Soul leather seat upholstery for a vintage look. However, technical materials also make an appearance, most notably for the mats and boot trim which are in SuperFabric, a tough, super-grippy “bulletproof” material featuring a 3D design developed exclusively for Ferrari.
The F12berlinetta’s ceiling liner and side panels are in Mycro Prestige, a soft, light, water-repellent and breathable fabric. The floor is triangular-pattern metal as per the classic cars of the past. The interior finish is bodywork-colour aluminium with yellow detailing on the bridge and door handles.
