If you’ve ever wanted the ultimate level of garish customization, fear not! Ferrari is willing to open up its entire upholstery and custom department to owners, called “Tailor-Made.”
If you can dream it, Ferrari can do it. The company states: “this innovative programme enables clients to create an individual car, using exclusive and unique materials, colour and trim with the support of a dedicated team, as if it were a bespoke suit.”
But it’s clear who this is aimed at: those who want their 458s to be just that certain level of special. If you want Ohio State colors, a center console wrapped in crocodile skin, or Gaddafi-like patterns across the headliner, then go ahead and write them a check. How about bright orange, for an example of taste and restraint? Or denim seats as on Fiat manager and sartorialist Lapo Elkann’s personal California, giving Ferrari its long-sought connection with AMC? They’ll probably even do whale penis leather if you ask nicely. Porsche and Bentley have similar programs, but with a Ferrari there’s just that extra amount of attention-seeking that owners can afford.
Xzibit would be proud.
