Ferrari 458 Italia 20th anniversary edition announced for China

April 11, 2012

Ferrari is celebrating its 20th year in China, and to thank the market, Ferrari has revealed a special Ferrari 458 Italia 20th anniversary edition. Just 20 examples will go on sale.

The Ferrari 458 Italia 20th anniversary edition features a Chinese mythology theme, with a Longma emblem on the bonnet in gold. The winged horse sits on a black stripe symbolising a race track which runs down the centre of the 458.

The dragon means “the vigor and spirit of the legendary dragon-horse”, appropriately relating to the Prancing Horse of Ferrari. Other features include gold alloy wheels, special badges, and unique sports seats with the Longma emblem.

To assist with celebrations, a special exhibition has been set up at the Italia Center of Shanghai World Expo Park. The exhibition will remain for three years, showcasing various pieces of automotive exotica, split up into three sections; Ferrari in China, Product, Design and Racing, and Green Technology.
