Cracked like ice: Chinese porcelain-inspired Ferrari 599

Web video of a Ferrari 599 that is painted, by a well-known Chinese artist, to look like a fragile vase.

Inspired by Ge Kiln porcelain, this one-off Ferrari 599 gets a special paint job by Chinese artist Lu Hao. The method for creating Ge Kiln was practiced in the Song Dynasty (between 960 and 1279). The unique look resembles cracked ice.

Several autoblogs today reported the car sold for $2 million at a charity auction.
