The Ferrari automaker has created a one-off 2013 Ferrari 458 Italia to honor the legendary Formula 1 racer Niki Lauda. This special 2013 Ferrari 458 Italia is created under the tailor-made customization program of the company.
The company says that this personalized 2013 Ferrari 458 Italia has also been built to celebrate the September launch of the movie “Rush”. This film actually depicts one of the biggest Formula 1 championships in the sport's history. It is based on the 1976 Formula 1 racing rivalry between James Hunt and Niki Lauda.
The color of Ferrari 458 Italia is red hot but its roof has a white hue. And the roof is embellished with an Italian flag. As for the car cabin, it too is decorated with an Italian flag. The engine of this special Ferrari 458 Italia is the same as that of the other models. But its gold wheels are patterned according to the Ferrari F1 race car that was used by Niki Lauda.
"An owner of a prancing horse has decided to personalize his new 458 Italia in the livery that featured on the Maranello car’s back in the golden age that covered the mid-70s," said Ferrari in a statement.
