The first Ferrari to ever be sold in China was the 348 TS in 1992.

Now the Italian automaker is celebrating 20 years of success in China by creating a special edition 458 Italia dedicated to the country.

Right away you notice the Chinese influences with the red and gold custom paint job and dragon accent on the hood. Additionally, the car features gold embroidery on the headrest and the rims have been customized in gold as well.

The paint job is especially fitting since based on the Chinese zodiac, it happens to be the “Year of The Dragon.”

Only 20 of the Chinese edition Ferrari 458 will be made available, but there are other brands that have made special edition vehicles specifically for China. Jeep made a custom Wrangler; Chrysler made a China edition of its 300C and Rolls Royce made a $1.2 million “Year of the Dragon” Phantom that already sold out.

You can take a few closer looks at the Ferrari 458 and other vehicles that were made specifically for China and the Year of the Dragon in the gallery above.
