Ferrari has also been selling its sports cars in China for 30 years. This is now being celebrated with an exclusive one-off based on the Ferrari Roma.
In 1992 Ferrari was able to sign its first sales contract with a Chinese customer in Beijing. Thirty years later, China is one of the most important markets for the Italian sports car manufacturer. Accordingly, the market anniversary and the start of Ferrari's fourth decade in China will be celebrated with a one-of model.
Inspired by furniture
The Ferrari Roma was created as part of the Italians' Tailor Made series. The prominent Chinese designer Jiang Qiong'er had a decisive influence on the design, adding traditional Chinese elements to the Italian vehicle design.
This is how the Ferrari Roma presents itself with a base coat in Sanusilver Matte, which is accentuated with a wide vertical stripe across the entire body in Rosso Magma Glossy. This shade of red pays homage to the traditional Chinese crimson. The stripes along the body can also be found in the interior in a complementary color arrangement. Here and there it is inspired by the characteristic features of classic furniture from the Ming Dynasty.
The front spoiler, rear diffuser and side skirts are made of visible carbon and also have a red highlight stripe. A dedication plaque on the center armrest is of particular importance. It is made of gold and inlaid with jade. In ancient Chinese culture, gold symbolizes wealth and good fortune, while jade indicates purity and gentleness. Both are so synonymous with good wishes and reverence.
The key case for the unique item is also refined. It is lacquered in red and gold dotted boluo lacquer, an ancient Chinese technique known for its unique textured finish.
Technically, the Roma with its 620 hp biturbo V8 remains untouched. For this purpose, Jiang Qiong'er has developed an exclusive lifestyle package for the exclusive Roma. The package includes a set of four aroma diffusers made of ebony and crystal, one for each season, a tea set painted with red and gold dot Boluo lacquer, an ebony cigar box, an inkstone cigar ashtray, a bamboo tea set, a xuan -Paper kites, cashmere blankets and a Chinese drafts game made of agate and leather. These items can be tucked away discreetly in the glove box, armrest and trunk. ,
