UAE-based CEO orders bespoke Ferrari car

Petrochemicals firm chief Cheerag Arya commissions one-of-its-kind luxury sports car

UAE-based CEO orders bespoke Ferrari car
A Ferrari 599 GTO, which Cheerag Arya has chosen as the base model for his bespoke order.

A UAE-based businessman has commissioned the Ferrari special projects team to build him a one-of-its-kind car.

The special-edition Ferrari 599 GTO - called the Ferrari SP Arya - is being built for Cheerag Arya, the CEO of JBF, a petrochemicals company based in Ras Al Khaimah at its Maranello factory in Italy.

It will be the fifth car to leave the special projects factory following the SP1, the P540 Superfast Aperta, Eric Clapton’s SP12 EPC and the Ferrari Superamerica 45, magazine GTSpirit reported.

According to reports, Arya's other cars of choice include a 599 GTO, a Daytona, an F40, a 599XX and an SA Aperta.

In comments published by the magazine, Arya said: "I told the designers what I wanted and they presented me with a total of 12 designs.

"I then picked the bits from each that I liked until we got an idea of the car I had in mind. A bit like a wish list."

He did not reveal the pricetag for the exclusive car or when he was picking it up from the factory.

Is this really of any news value whatsoever? Surely there are more important subjects to report on than someone's plaything.

Up untill today. I wonder how few manage to buy large villas in Dubai that cost 25+ Mil...
Well now I know that some can really afford it. I say if it is legitimate money, good for them and hope they enjoy every bit of it. I also wish that they use some of their extra money for charity and I am sure a lot are doing so. Or am I such a naive?!?!?!
Enjoy Ayra :-)
I am also enjoying my new VW hehehe

News is for news' sake, nothing more and nothing less..Passion drives one to do things like these....chirag is realising his dreams and passion...he can afford it....and because of it others get to see one such...good for ferrari advocators and sports car enthusiasts alike...sure he must be doing his bit for charity...btw i drive a honda civic which is pretty much what my heart can take....

Great car. Wish I could afford one but unless I get pardoned for some great scam I doubt I would be able to afford one. I know that in Ras Al Khaimah there were numerous building projects that were being developed and many people that paid deposits for these new homes never got their homes delivered to them and now we have a local buying a new Ferrari. Alf-Mabrook lol..

Please note the car was bought by an Indian, who happens to be the CEO of a RAK based corporate entity which is part of an Indian multi-national industrial company

Easy to generalise and jump to conclusions.
The name is not Arabic, it is rather Sub-continent rooted (ie Indian, Pakistani, Bangladeshi..)

Men and ego, inferiority complex, when so many die from hunger... but giving to charity, instead of showing off to prove he has succeeded in life, would then be worth an article...
