Ferrari’s 70 icons: 2003-2014

Ferraris 70 icons 1947 1953 main

Ferrari turns the ripe old age of 70 this year.

To celebrate the occasion, the most famous of all car makers has released 70 liveries which will be applied just once to each model in the current range: California T, 488 GTB and Spider, GTC4 Lusso and F12 Berlinetta.

There are no mechanical modifications, with each car identified by its unique paintwork, 70th Anniversary logo and ID plate with the name of the model that inspired it. Nonetheless, in the current collector car market, no doubt Ferrari aficionados will be clambering over one another in an effort to secure these models.

Below you’ll find the 10 liveries inspired by Ferrari models from 2003-2014. Let us know your favourite in the comments below.

61. 2003 Ferrari Challenge Stradale

2003 Ferrari Challenge StradaleWith an Italian flag striped thinly down the middle of the bright red paintjob, this is one of the most Ferrari-esque Ferraris around. Thanks to a 3.6-litre V8, it can hit its first hundred in 4.1 seconds, and carry on to 300 clicks.

62. 2004 Ferrari 612 Scaglietti

scagIt looks happy, but an angry V12 allows it to hit 100km/h in four seconds flat before reaching 320 - eventually.  It was named for Sergio Scaglietti, who had built some of Ferrari’s greatest cars of the ‘50s and ‘60s.

63. 2007 Ferrari FXX Pacchetto Evoluzione

fxxOne of the most wicked looking Ferraris to have inspired a tribute livery, the FXX Pachchetto Evoluzione has some of the most wicked performance figures. Ferrari don’t have a 0-100 time for it, but it will crank up to 345km/h thanks to its 588kW 6.3-litre V12.

64. 2008 Ferrari Scuderia Spider 16M

scudThe sexy Scuderia hides a relatively modest (considering its company) V8, but is still capable of a 3.7 second trip to 100km/h. That’s what 375kW can do with 1340kg. You’ll want goggles or a helmet if you’re particularly tall.

65. 2010 Ferrari SA Aperta

ApertaAnother topless Italian, the Aperta which inspired a livery remake is a cheerful blue with silver accents and wheels to complement. You might not have time to notice this if it’s rocketing past at its top of 325km/h… or even at 100km/h, which it can hit in just 3.6 seconds.

65

66. 2010 Ferrari 599 GTO

599The road-going version of the 599XX prototype, the 599 GTO, has the ability to reach 334 km/h and was the fastest Ferrari around Fiorano upon its release, with a lap time of 1.24.

67. 2011 Ferrari 458 Italia GT2/3/E

458 italiaThe 458 Italia series was responsible for three Constructors’ Championship and team titles between 2011 and 2015. This particular example gets its livery and interior recreated in classic Ferrari colours with a flag down the centre.

67

68. 2013 LaFerrari

LaFerrariThe car so good they simply named it The Ferrari. It’s fair to say this is where Ferrari sees its pinnacle. Just over 700kW will bring a LaFerrari to 100km/h in less than 3.0 seconds (some claim less than 2.5), and will carry it on to hit over 350km/h.

66

69. 2014 Ferrari FXX K

FxxIt’s the LaFerrari… but for racing. If the road version is stupid-fast, this thing is even stupider. A whopping 772kW are provided by its V12 and electric motors, but Ferrari has provided no times for it. Anyone want to let us test one?

69

70. 2014 Ferrari 458 Speciale A

458 specialeThe finale. Number 70 is the 458, a gorgeous gold open-top with 4.5-litres of V8 allowing 0-200km/h in under 10 seconds. To 100 is only three. After the LaFerrari, 445kW might not seem like much, but it won’t cost you nearly the same.
