Fernando Alonso and Felipe Massa drive for the Scuderia Ferrari Formula One team, and thanks to Chrysler, they'll now be able to rep their squads off the track as well. The Street and Racing Technology division paid tribute to the F150 Formula One car by giving two Grand Cherokees that signature Ferrari flare. Though they left the 470-horsepower 6.4L V8 engine untouched, the team added multiple aesthetic upgrades. The Cherokee was dipped in Rosso Corsa red paint, a matte-black grille was added, an offset black stripe with a white accent rides the length of the vehicle, and 20-inch black rims keep the Jeep on track.
“We know that both Fernando and Felipe will feel right at home in our ultimate performance SUVs that are identically built with classic Ferrari styling cues and one-of-a-kind Rosso Corsa exteriors,” Beth Paretta, director of marketing and operations for SRT, said in a statement. “The Grand Cherokee SRT8 brings a combination of Jeep's world-class capability to the road or the racetrack, along with unparalleled luxury and refinement for all driving enthusiasts.”
We can't lie, when we hear that there is a custom Ferrari anything, we expect some sort of performance upgrade, but we guess there's no sense in trying to compete with this anyways.
