On 9 August 2015, Singapore celebrated its 50th year of independence. To mark the occasion, Ferrari’s Tailor Made division and Rolls-Royce both commissioned unique cars. Ferrari opted to customize an F12 Berlinetta and Rolls-Royce a Ghost Series II.
The one-off F12 Berlinetta Singapore is called the ‘SG50 Ferrari F12 Berlinetta’ and features a design scheme that pays homage to the Singapore national flag, red and white. The exterior of the F12 Berlinetta has been finished in ‘Rosso Singapore’ red, with racing stripes. Inside, ‘Singapore 50th Anniversary Edition 1/1′ has been stitched onto the steering wheel and the inner door sills. Furthermore, the headrests of the black and red sport seats feature a lion, Singapore’s national animal. Under the skin the car is no different from any another F12 which means under the hood there is a 6.3-liter naturally aspirated V12 engine capable of generating 740 hp and 690 Nm of torque. It allows the car to propel from 0 to 100 km/h in just 3.1 seconds and from 0 to 200 km/h in 8.5 seconds. The top speed stands in excess of 340 km/h.
The Rolls-Royce SG50 Ghost Series II has been finished in English White together with a coachline in Consort Red as they subtly represented the colours of the Singapore flag. In typical Rolls-Royce style, the paint process lasted a staggering seven days, during which five layers were applied to Ghost’s body. The 5.4-metre coachline also incorporated a Singapore Merlion motif which is painstakingly hand-painted. Additionally, 21” seven spoke, forged and part polished alloy wheels added to the cars elegant profile.
The Bespoke team paid particular attention to the cars interior as it is where an owner would spend the most time in. Like the exterior, a contrast of Consort Red and Seashell colours was picked to hint to Singapore’s national colours. Beyond that, the iconic Merlion logo has been stitched to each of the four headrests in the car. When the doors are opened, passengers are met with a highly detailed treadplate featuring Singapore’s skyline, designed by the Goodwood Bespoke Design studio, a fantastic touch indeed.
