To celebrate the 20th anniversary since Ferrari sold its first car in China, the company has released the 458 China special edition

Ferrari has been selling cars in China for 20 years now, and to mark the occasion, the Italian manufacturer is offering the 458 Italia 'China' special edition. There's a Chinese theme running throughout the car, and although China is now one of Ferrari's biggest markets, only 20 of these exclusive 458s will be offered.

Based on the ancient Chinese 'longma' theme (the vigor and spirit of the legendary dragon-horse), it's painted in Marco Polo Red - a special one-off colour - which is 'complimented' by gold wheels and a striking dragon logo emblazoned on the bonnet.

This is just the opening proposition for the 20th anniversary celebrations though. Ferrari will be holding a huge permanent exhibition at the Shanghai World Expo Park, taking over a huge hall to display some of the best collections from the Maranello Museum.
