It’s no lie. Owning a supercar such as a Ferrari takes some serious good monies but unlocks an intriguing level of privilege within the world of motoring.
A clear example is the Ferrari Cavalcade which is an annual meetup and road trip exclusively for Ferrari owners and to celebrate a decade of the event, the Maranello-based carmaker is building five cars inspired by the views along the route.
The Ferrari 812 Competizione A wears a green hue and according to the carmaker, it is intense, iridescent blue and displays shades inspired by the sea.
Besides the dominant blue colour, the 812 Competizione A is also equipped with exposed carbon fibre on the front fascia, bonnet, roof, bonnet and rear end. It is also equipped with dark bits and pieces that add a dose of sportiness to it. To add some dramatic contrast, it also features yellow brake calipers.
At this stage, there’s very little known information about the special Ferraris. We expect them to feature a naturally-aspirated 6.5-litre V12 engine that also powers the coupe and Aperta models.
The engine is capable of revving all the way up to 9,500 r/min whilst producing 610 kW of power and 692 Nm of torque. It dashes from a standstill to 100 km/h in 2.8 seconds while shifting through a 7-speed DCT transmission.
The yearly event takes place in a different place in the Italian region and attendees have to part with $30,000 per car. That’s roughly R460,000, yikes.
