There are special clients and there are very special clients. Part of the second category is the Royal family from Belgium. King Leopold III himself came to Maranello to order his cars, always made according to some special requests. The King arrived more like a friend than the King of a state. His wife, Princess Liliane De Rethy, was exactly the same and asked for measure-made Ferraris for herself. At the moment shown in Maranello is the wonderful 330 GTC Speciale, designed by Pininfarina with a characteristic rear window and some truly royal details. The Princess loved this car so much that she never gave it away and it still has the original license plates. Only in 2002, when she died at the age of 85 anni, the car passed into the hands of a collector, who conserves it with the highest respect.
