Ferrari 456M GT Scaglietti

456M GT “Schumacher Edition”

In the final year of production in 2002 – 2003, customers could specify their vehicle using the Carrozzeria Scaglietti Program. Ferrari introduced this special two-tone version of the 456M GT as a further example of the personalization opportunities offered by the Carrozzeria Scaglietti personalization programme, presently adopted by 90% of Ferrari’s clientele.

In the case of the 456M GT displayed on the Ferrari stand, and expressly designed for Michael Schumacher, the dominant characteristic is the two-tone paint finish. This elegant tone on tone personalized colour mix was obtained through a specific study personally commissioned by Schumacher – on the chromatic tones of grey, then also applied to other exterior details as the wheel rims and the radiator grille.

The personalized options are also extended to the car’s interior with the new graphics for the dials, whilst the cross-drilled brakes contribute to adding a more sporty note to the two-tone 456M GT Scaglietti. The tailoring process has also been applied to many leather interior details, such as the steering wheel, the door trims and the rear parcel shelf. The seats are characterized by micro-perforated leather to the central part, whilst the crimson stitching contributes to the even more personalized style of the interior. The final personalization touches are a special version of the hi-fi stereo system and the radio-satellite navigation system.

The car is also known as the 456M GT “Schumacher Edition” as Schumacher was the first to commission the car. A total of 30 cars were produced, with only 10 being made with the 6-speed manual transmission.
