A unique Ferrari one-off has been lapping the marque’s Fiorano test track, and now we’re finally getting a good look at it — and it’s stunning.
The one-off creation is called the Omologata, and it’s basically a modern rendition of one of Ferrari’s absolute all-stars, the 250 GTO. “GTO” stands for Grand Touring Omologato, and given the styling, it’s safe to say this is a direct homage to that famous race car.
Featuring voluptuous curves and half-moon-shaped intakes, the lineage of this one-off is unquestionable. We would have thought it impossible to make a modern car that looks better than the 812 the Omologato is based on, but this seems to have taken the cake.
The designers changed every facet of the 812 except for the windshield and the headlights, even though every change might not be immediately visible. Around back, the rear window has been swapped out for a set of louvers, and the tail of the vehicle now sweeps up with a small spoiler.
Under that extremely long hood is still the 812’s beautiful 6.2-litre V12, which produces a sound so beautiful it’ll turn horsepower and other output figures into afterthoughts.
The car marks the tenth one-off creation that Ferrari has built, with the first being the 2009 P540 Superfast Aperta.
The commissioner isn’t known, but whomever they are, we must say “well done,” for this is one exquisite vehicle. A regular Ferrari 812 isn’t exactly a cheap car, and we’re guessing this was, well, even less cheap than usual.
