2012 marks the 20th anniversary of the first ever Ferrari
, a 348 TS, being ordered in China. To celebrate, Ferrari will introduce twenty 458 Italia special editions exclusively for the Chinese market. Unique Chinese elements adorn the car's livery, and the special edition wears a brand new color called Marco Polo Red, specially developed for the exclusive car.
Inspiration for the livery comes from the longma theme, an old Chinese idiom meaning "the vigor and spirit of the legendary dragon-horse."
