The SF90 Stradale is the latest candidate for unique styling.
Ferrari is one of the most prestigious brands on the planet, and just purchasing a new car from the Italian marque elevates your social standing considerably. However, this won't gain you access to the exclusive events that Ferrari holds for its most valued customers. To get to these, you need to own a number of Ferraris, especially noteworthy special editions and classics. But once you do get to such a level, access to things like the Ferrari Cavalcade becomes possible. This is an annual rally organized by Ferrari that takes place in a different region of Italy each year. Last year's drive - which started on September 4 - took place on the beautiful Mediterranean island of Sicily, and now Ferrari is celebrating the 10th edition of the run with some special design configurations.
As the above post from the brand's Facebook post shows, the Ferrari SF90 Stradale is the second model to be reimagined in a special configuration. The paint on the digital render you see above is called Rosso Taormina, a "deep, earthy shade of red that draws its inspiration directly from the charred slopes of Mount Etna." The first configuration was revealed a week ago and saw the spectacular 812 Competizione rendered in Blu Capri, "a marvelous shade of intense, iridescent blue, displaying various nuances inspired by the sea." Ferrari has not made clear if these configurations will be coming to life, but we'd love to see them.
But enough about virtual Ferraris. Robb Report says that the invite-only event costs almost $30,000 per car, and some owners bring both a drop-top and a coupe so that they can maximize their pleasure regardless of the weather conditions.
Invited Ferrari owners must pay for shipping their cars to the event, but that's not an issue for the world's wealthy. Ferrari says that 93 modern cars turned up to last year's event along with 36 classics (as part of the Cavalcade Classiche). All nine examples of the Monza SP2 turned up, while grand tourers like the Portofino and 812 were accompanied by hybrids like the SF90 and LaFerrari. The classics were mostly made up of different versions of the work of art that is the Ferrari 250, but over 70 years' worth of Ferraris showed up, from the 166 MM to the Testarossa and F50. Amazingly, the cars on the rally covered almost 1,000 kilometers (621 miles) over the five days. Seeing a Ferrari is wonderful, but seeing it driven is even more magical.
