Porcelain Ferrari to be auctioned


A one-off 599 GTB Fiorano China Limited Edition will be sold next month

The unique Ferrari is one of less than a dozen cars finished in two-tone Rosso Fuoco with silver roof and characterised by Chinese design elements.

A special exterior finish draws inspiration from Ge Kiln porcelain of the Song Dynasty, and designer Lu Hao has created an elegant ‘cracked’ glaze pattern.

Only a few hundred pieces of Ge Kiln porcelain exist today, and the “cracked” glaze pattern is often used to symbolise the qualities of a true gentleman.

“The 599 China Limited Edition model is a true masterpiece, combining rich Chinese artistic heritage with Italian design in a most spectacular way,” says Marco Mattiacci, CEO of Ferrari Asia Pacific.

The car will be auctioned in Beijing on 3 November at a gala hosted by Ferrari, with some proceeds going to an educational sponsor programme aimed to help young Chinese students in the automotive engineering field.
