‘Ferrari’, just the name is enough to send anyone’s heart pulsating. But then what do you say to one in gold.┬ Yep, you heard it right. If our sources are to be believed the car mogul has had Pininfarina design this prancing horse model the retro way, that too in the color gold. And that should explain why it is being referred to as ‘The Golden Ferrari’.
From the looks of it, the wonder machine does look inspired by the Ferrari 599 GTB model but we can’t be too sure about its underpinnings. Did we tell you that there is no official information on the car expect that the car was snapped by onlooker. But we have our guess work intact. And we are quite sure that the style of the car is really a revival of the 1965 Ferrari 250 GT NART Spyder that was designed and built by Modena coachbuilder Fantuzi at the special request of Luigi Chinetti, the North American importer at Ferrari.
The car was first exhibited at the 1965 San Francisco Sports Car Show and later at the New York and Miami Auto motor shows. Here’s some trivia. A golden version of NART Spyder featured in a forgettable film called ‘Toby Dammit’ which gave Pininfarina the idea to recreate one all over again.
