Hugh Grant sells the Ferrari California he gave himself for his 50th birthday

The English dealer Quirks Car Company, which specializes in exotic and sports cars, has put up for sale a Ferrari California. It would be nothing strange if this car did not have a very special owner: the actor Hugh Grant, who was given this sports car when he turned 50 years old.

The British artist, who celebrated his fiftieth anniversary in 2010, had to wait two years to have his sports car because he preferred to have the updated version of the model that Ferrari began to produce in 2008.

The gift that was made went far beyond acquiring the Italian vehicle as he customized it to his liking, something that gives it an extra appeal.

Personalization is apparent to the naked eye with the body color. The red so characteristic of Ferrari, called Racing red, was changed by a very elegant gray with leather interiors that match the exterior.

Grant asked for his Ferrari California, to which he made 43,000 kilometers, the handling package that improves driving dynamics, with magnetic suspension and 20-inch alloy wheels.
