If you like the Ferrari F12 Berlinetta but didn’t buy it because it’s a series production car, then Spanish design house Bengala knows your pain. Uniqueness is in most cases a state of mind, thinks Shoghi Saeidnia, the firm’s CEO. And for the very few who “get a taste of the irreplaceable reality the word brings to those who earn it,” Bengala is offering a new Privilege Program, with a car based on the F12 Berlinetta as the first offering. Dubbed F12 Caballería, the bespoke carbon fibre custom creation sports even more aggressive lines than the base car, which the designer says have been inspired by Ferrari’s own GT3 cars.
The Privilege Program will be ultra-exclusive and only 10 F12 Caballerías are planned to be built. Bengala says these 10 customers will be part of a club which will eventually be joined by “like-minded people sharing the same passion for individuality.” What this means is these 10 individuals will be given instant access to Bengala’s future limited edition projects, events and private viewings, and the opportunity to see and possibly buy new models before they are released onto the market. But the custom designer makes it clear that only one such project will be planned every year, and that each project will be limited to just five to 10 units.
“We bring to our customers an interpretation of their desires, based on their dreams. Put it simply, we mastered and created a unique piece of design and engineering, the Bengala F12 Caballería, and ten special individuals earned it,” says Saeidnia. Although he mentions design and engineering, no further details have been furnished as of now regarding what these enhancements will be.
All 10 F12 Caballerías will be completed by summer 2017.
