70th Anniversary livery no. 23, the “Lucybelle”
Inspired by the 250 Testa Rossa, chassis no. 0732 TR
Highly collectable 70th Anniversary model
The only such 488 GTB finished in this livery
As-new with only 155 miles

To properly celebrate their 70th anniversary, Ferrari announced a limited run of cars finished in 70 unique liveries—all representing specific cars and models from the company’s storied history. Each livery would be available on only one of each of Ferrari’s five production models at the time—the 488 GTB, 488 Spider, California T, GTC4 Lusso, and the F12 Berlinetta.

Offered here is the only 488 GTB finished in livery #23—the “Lucybelle,” created by Ferrari’s Tailor Made department to celebrate American privateer Ed Hugus’s 250 Testa Rossa, chassis number 0732 TR. It is no surprise that Hugus was chosen to represent this iconic and highly desirable model—in 1958 he drove his 250 Testa Rossa to an incredible 7th-overall finish at the 24 Hours of Le Mans. The “Lucybelle” echoes Hugus’s white-and-blue-stripe paint job, said to have been inspired by a yacht that he had seen earlier that year!

Finished in triple-layer metallic Bianco Italia, with those iconic double Blu Laguna stripes and the bold #22 on the bonnet and doors, this 488 GTB celebrates one of Ferrari’s great privateers. The interior is finished in black leather, including the lower dashboard, central tunnel, and headliner. The Goldrake racing seats are finished in Rosso Ferrari Jeans Aunde fabric, echoing the red fabric seats on Ed’s Testa Rossa. Small white details, such as the prancing horse logo on the headrests and the rev counter, ensure that the interior remains true to its sporting inspiration. Equipped with the carbon-fiber racing package, the dashboard and steering wheel are surrounded in carbon fiber. The smooth lines of the 488 GTB flow from the carbon-fiber front spoiler to the rear titanium exhaust pipes, while red brake calipers draw the eye to the 20-inch forged diamond rims. The dedication plate proudly marks the 488 GTB as an exclusive 70th Anniversary edition.

Delivered new to California, this 488 GTB has just 155 miles on the odometer and is factory-fresh throughout. In as-new condition, with a livery honoring one of the most valuable vintage Ferrari models, this is the perfect piece for any collector looking for an exceptional and one-of-a-kind 488 GTB.To view this car and others currently consigned to this auction, please visit the RM website at rmsothebys.com/en/auctions/mo19.
