Ferrari has revealed the new Omologata, its latest bespoke supercar created as a one-of-a-kind for a favoured Ferrari fan.

The company describes the Omologata as a car that captures ‘Ferrari’s great GT tradition spanning seven decades of history.’ It is the 10th front-engined V12 one-off to have emerged from Maranello since the P540 Superfast Aperta, of 2009.

Finished in Rosso Magma paint and sporting a racing livery, the new Omologata was commissioned by a European client, said to want ‘a car suited to a gentleman driver… and as at ease on the road as it is hitting the apex on the race track.’

The Italian car maker says the Ferrari Omologata project took more than two years to complete from scratch. It is based on the 812 Superfast platform, with only the windscreen and headlights carried over from the body.

That means that it packs the same howling 6.5-litre V12 engine, which delivers 789bhp at 8500rpm and is capable of propelling the standard 812 Superfast to more than 211mph – no Ferrari hybrid power to be found here, then.

The bodywork is fashioned from a mixture of hand-crafted aluminium and carbon-fibre. Ferrari says that one of the greatest challenges of creating the bespoke commission was satisfying all rules and regulations to ensure it was safe and could be homologated for use on the public road.

Inside the new Omologata sports electric blue seats, finished in a combination of leather and Jeans Aunde fabric – the latter featuring on Ferrari’s GT racing cars in the 1960s – with 4-point racing harnesses. A crackled paint effect finishes off all metal components around the cabin, again a nod to Ferraris of yore. Another tradition carried over is a hammered paint effect, seen on models such as the 250 LM and 250 GTO, which has been applied to the doors’ internal handles and the Ferrari F1 transmission tunnel.

The black interior is made all the more moody by the bodywork treatment, which does away with rear quarter light glass and generous glass hatch of the 812.

Naturally, no mention of the cost of such a project is shared by Ferrari, but prices for such one-off supercars typically run into the millions, rather than hundreds of thousands.

Whether or not Ferrari chose to publicise the new Omologata as a result of Ares Design winning a recent trademark dispute over the rights to the shape of the 250 GTO, or Touring Superleggera showing the new Aero 3, is something that will only be known within the corridors of power in the Maranello HQ.
