At the Ferrari stand of the 2015 Brussels Auto Show, there are both new and old models on display. But what makes the old models display worthy is the fact that they are a one-off bespoke creation, such as this Tailor Made F12berlinetta.

“The F12berlinetta in question, displayed by Ferrari and Francorchamps Motors, pays homage to the Ecurie Francorchamps team,” describes a Jan. 22 article from Ferrari’s news site, “specifically the 250 GTO in which Lucien Bianchi and Georges Berger won the 1964 Tour de France.”

The Ecurie Franchorchamps team was a Belgian race team that was active in the 1950s, ’60s and ’70s, racing and winning primarily in Ferraris. The 1964 Ferrari 250 GTO has recently reappeared in headlines as a top seller at auctions – in October 2013, one reportedly sold for as much as $52 million.

This creation from Ferrari’s bespoke personalisation program features a triple-layer cross-stripe, which Ferrari describes as “a modern take on the original Modena yellow used by the Ecurie Francorchamps.” The interior features a tobacco colored leather on the seats, while the rest of the interior is a sharp black. Yellow detailing that matches the strip on the bonnet appears on the steering wheel, interior door handles and center console.
