The LaFerrari is the model of the Italian brand that the heir to the throne of Johor has exhibited the most. One of its specimens was able to arouse curiosity due to its color not often seen in Maranello vehicles. He slides, reads, looks at the images and decides: Do you agree with my assessment?
By importance, it could be deduced that the LaFerrari is the model of the Italian brand that most seduces the prince of johor. Tunku Ismail owns other Ferraris such as the SP3 Daytona, although the hybrid supercar launched on the market in 2013 is the one that has exhibited the most as a reflection of his preference.
His Aperta summons us all to unanimity -right? Black hood, white exterior. Aesthetic minimalism and Ferrari have always gotten along and the prince’s spider, one of only 210 made, exemplifies the idea. Otherwise, his other LaFerrari, a coupé that also escapes the traditional Rosso Corsa but, unlike the Aperta, may invite discrepancy.
I mean the LaFerrari in purple finish -Rosso Vinaccia- that revolutionized Johor the day the prince showed it to the public near the stadium of the Southern Tigers, a football club owned by the heir. And it’s not that it looks like it causes widespread rejection, it’s just that, in my opinion, this purple doesn’t quite fit into the design of the LaFerrari.
In favour, two considerations. This hybrid specimen must be put in context, since it is common to see models with unusual colors in the collections of royalty such as those of Johor and Brunei -a case similar to that of Sheikh Arcoíris. As a second item, a similar tone dressed the 1970s Dino GTS under the name Rosso Cordoba, a color recognized by Ferrari.
Whether you like it or not, knowing that there are more appropriate color options for a LaFerrari, the Rosso Vinaccia copy of the prince of johor It is nothing that has not been seen in the recent history of the firm: a 599 GTO and even an F40 also aroused curiosity under the same hue, although, I must say, the designs of the latter suit them much better.
