The Golden Ferrari Revival by Pininfarina Uncovered

Apparently based on the 599 GTB

Our friends over at Autoblog.nl have uncovered details about a new Pininfarina project dubbed the "Golden Ferrari". Apparently based on the 599 GTB, the car seems to have received inspiration from the Ferrari 330 LMB featured in the short film "Toby Dammit".

Like the one-off P4/5 built for James Glickenhaus, the Golden Ferrari features unique Pininfarina styling with a definite retro flair. The most eye-catching detail is the car's exclusive open top design and a beautiful rear roll bar which fits exquisitely into the rear quarter panels.

Although we can't be certain, the car likely uses the 599's 6.0-liter V12 engine which produces 620 horsepower.

The car was apparently bought by Wal-Mart's CEO, Rob Walton, for an undisclosed amount of money.

congratulations , Pininfarina . you have just successfully plagiarized a 1968-1969 Chevrolet Corvette's rear elevation . design larceny is not always based in China , they are also established right in the heart of Italy , practiced even by its renowned coach builders .
