About a week ago, we introduced a special edition BMW Z4 Silver Top Edition that’s being exclusively made for the Japanese market. Turns out, that isn’t the only special edition sports car that’s making its way to Japan, leading us to wonder why they always seem to get first dibs on limited-run cars. It’s not exactly fair, is it?

Having said that, our readers over in Japan will be happy to know that a special edition Ferrari California will be offered exclusively in Japan, similar to the aforementioned BMW Z4 Silver Top Edition. The limited run California is being offered by the country’s leading Ferrari importer, Cornes & Co., and was created to celebrate their 30 years of service in Japan. There will only be 10 available models in three different color schemes – four models will have a Bianco/Nero color scheme, three will have a Nero/Crème color way, and three more will have a Rossa Corso/Nero color scheme.

The engine setup will remain as is with the California’s 4.3L V8 engine producing 450hp, but the importers made sure to give this special edition California some new exterior digs, including new carbon fiber materials on the fuel cover, rear moulding, door handles, and side skirts. This California also comes with Rosso Brake Calipers and a special set of wheels in the form of 5-spoke diamond polished forged wheels with the unmistakable red Prancing Horse center caps that have been bolted down by a set of titanium bolts.

As for the pricing, you can own one of the 10 available models for 26.5 million yen or about $319,000 based on current exchange rates. It’s highly unlikely that we can buy one of the 10 models given that they’re only selling them in Japan so we’ll just settle for the next best thing: looking at the photos over and over again.

The thing is that our upper class wouldn’t mind... like say, people who live in Minato-ku. Why lie, I’ve seen far more GT-Rs (R35) and Lamborghini’s in Japan than anywhere else.

Very nice car! I’m also glad that its heart comes from Ferrari. I’m also glad that everything about this car is high tech and why I feel that this car warrants a high price. Meant only for the lucky few.
