The C35 was a commemorative model created in celebration of Colnago’s 35th anniversary in 1989. It was one of the first frames to be manufactured using a carbon fibre composite, and was kitted out with a gold-plated Campagnolo Super Record gruppo. It was liveried as stock in rosso corsa or black, but one enthusiastic owner decided to take Italian flamboyance to another level with a custom paint job.
Ferrari began using carbon fiber in their Formula One chassis during the 80s, and collaborated with Colnago on the C35. The Ferrari Engineering badge is seen on the downtube of this C35, and it’s also visible on the legendary, exceptionally comfortable Selle Italia Novus saddle. To stand out from all the other C35s on the road, however, you really need an all-over mural of a Ferrari F50; enjoying a moonlit mountain road on the drive side, and carousing the beach side promenade on the other.
This C35 belongs to the collection of Gregory Softley, you can view more of his amazing machines in his flickr stream.
