First seen on five cars used for the 70th anniversary livery 'The Green Jewel' in 2017, Verde Jewel is a bright shade of green inspired by the 1965 Ferrari 365 P2 of David Piper. Ferrari built just 6 units of this racing car, which was entered in the 1965 race season alongside the 275 P2 and 330 P2. One of them was acquired by long-time Ferrari customer team David Piper Racing. The car was painted in the characteristic green colour of the British team.
