Cornes & Co. has been importing Ferraris to Japan since 1976. To celebrate those thirty years of service, Maranello has created a very limited edition of its 612 Scaglietti grand tourer. Only 20 copies will be produced, and they will be offered exclusively to Japanese customers. The Cornes 30th Anniversary car begins as a 612 Scaglietti equipped with the factory's HGTC package. From there, it gets a slate of visual enhancements that set it apart from the rest of the prancing horses in the stable.

Outside, the  Ferrari gets an exclusive paint color called Blu Cornes, a carbon fiber filler cap, and mesh grille inserts in the front and rear fascias. The blue theme is carried over inside as well. The speedometer and tach faces are the same shade of blue as the bodywork, and the gorgeous two-tone interior mixes the deep blue with a rich tan, creating one of the most opulent cabins to be found in any Ferrari. Touch surfaces are made of carbon fiber, leather, or alacantra suede, depending on where you rest your hand. The dashboard and rear seating area each get special CORNES 30th badges, and the kickplates in the doorsills are graced with placques featuring the signature of Ferrari chairman Luca di Montezemolo.

Price of entry is 33,980,000 Yen, which translates to around $304,000 USD. Delivery of the cars begins in November.

Check out official publicity shots of the interior after the jump. Cornes and Carview have photo galleries from the car's unveiling in Japan.

      You're correct, Ron, but for whatever reason, these 20 cars look like they're going to be LHD.
      • 8 Years Ago
      in Japan, LHD = hi-status

      The Ferraristas will buy anything tagged as a 'special edition'. They're worse than Porschephiles.

      Not my bag. I've driven many a Ferrari over the years, and they just don't do it for me. Some drive well, but they are almost without exception nightmares to work on. If I want wacky Italitude, I prefer Lambos and Alfas. But that's just me.

      Yeah Japan is RHD, but many expensive European cars are brought in as LHD models because it gives the appeal of a more exotic car.

      I thought that Japan was right hand drive
      • 8 Years Ago
      it is but l hand drive is for status

      They drive on the left, but from my trip to Tokyo, I saw that cars have the steering on the right or left. I don't think the gov't really cares.
