Via CLing. I am not much of a car fanatic, but this one-off version of the Ferrari 599 GTB Fiorano is a real fine work of art.
The unique car, hand-painted with Song Dynasty Ge kiln pottery pattens, is a collaboration between Ferrari and leading Chinese artist, Lu Hao.
For extra authenticity, Lu Hao used a “cracked glaze”pattern, with raised ridges designed to simulate cracks in the surface of ancient porcelain.
Inside the 599, the traditional Ferrari ‘Start’ button on the steering wheel is jade-encrusted and the numbers on the rev counter are written in ancient Chinese script. In the boot, there is a luggage set etched with depictions of the Silk Road.
The car was sold for a princely sum of S$2.5 million in an auction in Beijing, graced by former F1 world champion, Michael Schumacher.
