Ferrari has revealed a 458 Italia dedicated to F1 legend Niki Lauda. The one off Ferrari model’s debut coincides with this year’s launch of the film “Rush” that tells the story of the on-track rivalry between Niki Lauda and James Hunt from the 1970’s Formula 1 era.

The owner of this new Ferrari decided to personalise his car in the livery that featured on the Maranello cars in the mid-Seventies. It gets a white roof, featuring the Italian flag going longitudinally across it, with gold rims. The car was prepared under the ‘Tailor Made’ personalisation programme, with the collaboration of a personal designer from the Maranello Style Centre.
