Ferrari stand at Frankfurt thronged on day one
Frankfurt, 15 September – As the first day draws to a close, there is no doubt about the real star of the Frankfurt International Motor Show: the 488 Spider. Maranello’s stunning new V8 dazzled on a Ferrari stand thronged from morning to evening by journalists, photographers and TV cameras.
But the 488 Spider was far from the only good news from the Prancing Horse at Frankfurt. First and foremost came the announcement that Apple CarPlay is being extended to the entire range having premiered on the FF and then been made available on the California T. The two Tailor Made California Ts on the stand most definitely drew the cameras too. The first is strikingly modern with glossy Grigio Titanio bodywork, an Antracite top and black leather and Blu Microprestige technical fabric interior trim. The second California T clearly references the sporting heritage of the famous 1957 250 TR which had its maiden outing in the Buenos Aires 1,000 Kilometre race in January 1958. It has Piano Black bodywork with sporty red and white detailing on the front bumpers and a matte Grigio Ferro Met grille. The livery colours are mirrored in the cabin which mixes black leather with extensive Rosso Cremisi, exactly as per the classic track car.
