Ferrari Magazine has revealed a one-off model that will be built for Cheerag Arya.
The 32-year old businessman lives in Dubai and runs his family's petrochemical business. He fell in love with Ferrari after seeing a South American football player with an F40 in a magazine.
Upon noticing he had some of the most desirable Ferraris in existence, he decided the time was right to order something unique. Arya then approached the company to discuss creating a one-off model in the same vein as the P540 Superfast Aperta and Eric Clapton's SP12 EC. After several meetings, Ferrari agreed to build the car and development work began.
According to Arya, the model is based on the 599 GTO and retains much of its original running gear. Twelve different designs were presented to him and he picked aspects from each for the design of the final car. He has already seen a clay model of the finished product, but remains tight-lipped about it as he commented "It's not a recreation of a previous model. The car has a bit of everything in it, both old school and new. Once it's done, I'll keep it in Dubai, but will take it to Europe every summer. I won't be showing it to the world, as it's a personal thing to me."
