At the 2002 Geneva Motor Show, Ferrari introduced a special two-tone version of the 456M GT as a further example of the personalisation opportunities offered by the Carrozzeria Scaglietti personalisation programme, presently adopted by 90% of Ferrari’s clientele.
In the case of the 456M GT displayed on the Ferrari stand, and expressly designed for Michael Schumacher, the dominant characteristic is the two-tone paint finish. This elegant “tone on tone” personalised colour mix was obtained through a specific study – personally commissioned by Schumacher - on the chromatic tones of grey, then also applied to other exterior details as the wheel rims and the radiator grille.
The personalised options are also extended to the car’s interior with the new graphics for the dials, while the cross-drilled brakes contribute to adding a more sporty note to the two-tone 456M GT “Scaglietti”. The tailoring process has also been applied to many leather interior details, such as the steering wheel, the door trims and the rear parcel shelf. The seats are characterised by micro-perforated leather to the central part, whilst the crimson stitching contributes to the even more personalised style of the interior. The final personalisation “touches” are a special version of the hi-fi stereo system and the radio-satellite navigation system.
