Hard as it may be to believe, the existing stock of Ferrari road cars just isn't enough for some. For those discerning (and exceedingly wealthy) customers, a unique Prancing Horse of their own is the only thing that will satisfy their need for automotive individuality. Far be it for us to complain, because their investment leads to eye candy, like Jim Glickenhaus' Enzo-based P4/5. Until now, such customers have had to turn to custom coachbuilders like Pininfarina and Carrozzeria Touring for such exclusivity, but reports now suggest that Ferrari will offer such extensive customization directly from the factory.

Show up at Maranello with 2 million euros in hand and an idea in mind, and Ferrari will cook you up your very own sportscar based on one of its existing chassis and powertrains. The only limit which Ferrari will reportedly impose is no SUVs, sedans or wagons (unless your first name is Sultan, of course), but we have a feeling they won't just slap their vaunted Prancing Horse emblem on any tail-finned, taupe-colored abomination you can cook up. We are, however, looking forward to finding out.

      Ops! I wanted to say "I don't have the money".
      • 6 Years Ago
      How about a hatchback or CUV?
      • 6 Years Ago
      Great!

      And I have a ready-for-production design:

      612 Scaglietti's front with the 599 GTB's back, V8, Manettino, whatever gearbox, maybe Delphi's MagneRide. Brilliant!

      Problem is... I don't the money.

        They are starting to build that already.

        The Ferrari California.

        open-grille front: check
        Single pair tail-light, high deck height rear: check
        F1 gearbox: check
        Manettino: check.
        magneto-fluidic dampers probably can be had or built for a Ferrari.

        Having the money... always the problem. :D

      I find it hard to believe they would put their name on any old piece of crap someone sketches on a napkin while drunk.

      Can finally get that limo version.
      • 6 Years Ago
      How about an updated 250 GTO.......but only if it can have an LS7 engine in it. It needs to be fast and dependable. Yes, and AC that works for Florida.

      Can I get one built to look like a Fiero?
      • 6 Years Ago
      can i get a minivan?
      • 6 Years Ago
      wonder how they will decide what can/cannot be done?
      more money than taste will be coming up a lot im sure.

        It has to be based on one of their current cars (wheelbase, engine can't change so the car can go through homologation). And your design has to be approved by Ferrari and you have to work with a Ferrari-recognized designer (like Pinnifarina, Zagato).
      • 6 Years Ago
      F430 with 599 (or if possible FXX) engine and Scuderia gearbox and typical luxury interior and Magneride, maybe slightly stretched wheelbase to make that V12 fit

      That could be the new Enzo with all the power squeezed out of the V12

      i want one that looks like a lambo ...wonder if they would build that for me?
        • 6 Years Ago
        They would swear at you in Italian, and kick you out, have their test drivers do burnouts in your face, and put you in a tiny, old Italian hatch and send you on your way to Sant'Agata Bolognese

        Well, if you can afford either a Lambo or even a coachbuilt Ferrari, I envy you
