Ferrari unveils a one-of-a-kind Ferrari Roma model, crafted by its bespoke Tailor Made department. The car features exquisite traditional Japanese-inspired detailing while retaining the clean, sophisticated elegance of the original car. Ferrari Tailor Made is an exclusive programme for those who wish to customise each element of their Ferrari to create a vehicle that truly reflects their personality and tastes. Customers who participate in the Tailor Made programme are assisted by a team of experts led by a personal designer that interprets their desires whilst upholding the aesthetic standards of the Ferrari brand. This particular car’s story began when Evan Orensten and Josh Rubin, the founders of the award-winning independent US publication dedicated to design, culture and technology COOL HUNTING, were offered, and accepted, the opportunity of customising a Ferrari Roma, to explore how far Ferrari’s bespoke personalisation programme could go and really push the boundaries.
The first new Bentley Blower in 90 years
After 40,000 hours of work, Bentley Mulliner today completed the first new Bentley Blower in 90 years with the delivery of the pre-production vehicle, the prototype for the Blower re-issue. This highly exclusive small production run of 12 customer cars - all already sold - is being built to the design drawings and tooling used for the original four Blowers built and raced by Sir Henry "Tim" Birkin in the late 1920s. Specifically, Bentley's own team car (chassis HB 3403, engine SM 3902, registration UU 5872 - team car No. 2) served as the template for the so-called Continuation Series. Each component was scanned by laser as part of a detailed complete restoration. Using this data, 1,846 individual parts were designed and hand-built to produce the new Blower. 230 of these parts are actually assemblies - one of which is the engine - so the total number of parts is several thousand when fasteners and interior trim parts are included. All parts and assemblies were produced by a project team of engineers, craftsmen and technicians from Bentley Mulliner in collaboration with various British specialists and suppliers.
The BMW Individual special paint finishes Brilliant White metallic and Frozen Dark Grey metallic are new to the range of body colours. In addition, the BMW Individual body finishes Frozen Pure Grey metallic and Frozen Portimao Blue metallic are also available for the respective BMW M automobiles and in conjunction with the M Sport model. The BMW i4 M50 (power consumption combined: 22.5 – 18.0 kWh/100 km according to WLTP; CO2 emissions: 0 g/km) for which the M Carbon exterior package was exclusively reserved so far, will also be available for all other model variants of the BMW i4 and the BMW 4 Series Gran Coupé from March 2022, also in conjunction with the M Sport model. It includes surrounds for the air curtains in the front apron, exterior mirror caps, a rear spoiler and diffuser insert trims made of the equally light and striking carbon-fibre-reinforced plastic. In the interior of the BMW i4 and the BMW 4 Series Gran Coupé, customers can select particularly high-quality features with the extended BMW Individual Merino leather upholstery in the colour variants Black, Ivory White, Tartufo, Fjord Blue/Black and Fiona Red/Black. For an even more exclusive ambience, the BMW Individual full leather Merino interior, available in the same colours, also includes leather upholstery on the instrument panel. In addition, individual interior design preferences can also be fulfilled from March 2022 onwards thanks to special upholstery from the BMW Individual programme.
To celebrate the arrival of the new Bentayga EWB, an exclusive First Edition is now available. Subject to a limited production run for the first twelve months of orders, it combines many of the most desirable options available for the car with a package of eye-catching details found only on Bentley First Editions. First Edition badging can be seen to the exterior of the car – a theme that extends inside, with badging on the veneered fascia, as well as embroidery on the seats. Unique First Edition contrast stitching and embroidery adorns the seats and, depending on the choice of veneers, handcrafted metal overlays just 0.075 mm thick can be applied to the fascia and waistrails in the front and the rear door veneer. The First Edition offers elegant and timeless design, focusing on maximum comfort and well-being. This specifically tailored specification includes a unique 22” ten-spoke directional wheel and bright lower bumper grilles. Other additional features as standard include unique quilted seats, mood lighting, a heated steering wheel, and increased driver’s assistance aids. Attention to detail is clear, from the badging that identifies the car to the jewelled caps on the fuel and oil fillers.
