Ferrari to Auction Off Unique Hand-Painted 599 China Special in Beijing
A Ferrari's a coveted object. A limited edition Ferrari even more so. But a one-of-a-kind Ferrari is another ballgame altogether. The path to the unique creation you see here passed through all those phases, and then some.
The Italian exotic automaker recently updated its flagship 599 GTB Fiorano supercar with the Handling GT Evoluzione package and took its dynamic performance to another level. But for the Chinese market, Ferrari unveiled a limited run of 12 special editions, with unique design touches carried out by Chinese artist Lu Hao. And of those 12, one has been made even rarer.
The artist has taken this solitary example and hand painted a greenish pearl white pattern reminiscent of the coveted Ge Liln porcelain of the Song dynasty. It's the only one of its kind to be made, and will be auctioned off for charity at a special event to be held in Beijing on November 3, where one collector/benefactor will drive away in this most special of special editions.
