Ferrari organized the GTC4Lusso’s French premiere at the Grand Palais on the occasion of this year’s Tour Auto Optic 2000. Replacing the FF, the latest prancing horse from Maranello was joined at the event by a one-off 488 GTB customized through Ferrari’s Tailor Made division in association Parisian dealer Charles Pozzi.
The main idea behind the unique 488 GTB was to create a blue & white livery that would harken back to the 308 Gr4 Pioneer driven by Jean Claude Andruet, a two-time winner of the Tour de France Auto (1981 and 1982). To complete the retro-flavored exterior appearance, Ferrari’s Tailor Made specialists installed gold wheels and matte black brake calipers reminiscent of the 488 GTB’s ancestor.
The spiritual connection between the two cars continues on the inside where the 488 GTB has red leather upholstery and a Grigio Corsa mat aluminum floor. The dashboard has been adorned by Ferrari with black matte carbon accents and there’s also a dash of Alcantara to spice things up even further.
A modern Ferrari with a classic twist, the one-off 488 GTB is a prime example of the enormous customization potential provided by the Tailor Made division. It was inaugurated back in 2011 and since then we have seen a great number of special Ferraris, including several California T and FF models.
