Through its Tailor Made customization program, Ferrari will let you have your brand new car in almost any color you like. There are a few notable exceptions, such as exterior-interior combos that don’t suit Maranello’s ethos. However, as that sounds a bit difficult to ascertain from outside the Prancing Horse, we’ll mention a clear color taboo: Ferrari has banned the color pink. Well, the 2022 SEMA show, which opens its gates tomorrow, will bring us what might be the world’s first Pink Ferrari F40. The iconic supercar is as real as they get, albeit sporting a brand new wrap color rather than a respray.
If you’re like us and spend too much time online, you may be familiar with this Fezza. Despite F40s being $2 million cars in today’s still-inflated market, this example keeps going deeper down the customization route.
However, before we zoom in on the machine, we’ll remind you that while the 477 hp 426 lb-ft (577 Nm) (US spec) of the F40 might not seem like much nowadays, this was the final Prancing Horse to be personally approved by Enzo Ferrari himself. Besides, its street-legal race car nature means its driving experience is much more visceral than those numbers would suggest, while its styling recommends it as one of the most iconic supercars in the history of the breed.
This F40 is a custom delight
For its latest form, this F40 sports a vinyl makeover that throws Inozetek’s fresh Rosewater shade of pink over the white paint of the legendary Prancing Horse. With the all-focused, simple lines (compared to the contemporary surface treatment) of the retired Maranello halo car, the color is displayed in all its beauty. So, at least to these eyes, it’s not just the originality of the finish that stands out.
And while the pink attire of the F40 will undoubtedly split opinions (if not within SEMA’s customization-addicted crowd, then on the internet), we can probably say the same about its moded nature.
Speaking of which, when this Italian exotic got hooned by Damon Fryer of the Daily Driven Exotics YouTube channel back in the summer of 2021, it had already received a $30,000 titanium exhaust, BBS F40 LM racecar-style wheels, a KW coilover suspension that brings it even closer to the asphalt. And Orange County-based Boden Autohaus, the specialist that handles the vehicle, stated that this would be brought even closer to the F40 LM—one new aspect we can see in the image gallery below involves the golden centers of the wheels.
How about a color-changing McLaren P1?
However, the wrap specialist has prepared a second delight for the Las Vegas custom car event. That would be a McLaren P1 (here’s what happened to the Hurricane Ian-flooded P1, by the way) that now sports a wrap with a bit of a chameleon look. You’ll find the hybrid hypercar, with its factory 903 hp and 664 lb-ft (900 Nm) of torque, in the image gallery and you should know that its shade is aptly dubbed Spectrum.
Then again, if you’re looking for some deep-custom 2022 SEMA projects, we’ve already brought you a fair share of such creations. And, thanks to Instagram shutterbug dragons_view, you’ll find the flamingo-colored F40 chilling in the SEMA parking lot in the second Instagram post below.
