The pair of AF Corse Ferrari 488 GTE cars will carry a darker shade of red in this year’s FIA World Endurance Championship, in honor of the Italian manufacturer’s 70th anniversary.

The livery for the GTE-Pro contenders were revealed on Monday, which will be driven by James Calado, Davide Rigon, Sam Bird and new recruit Alessandro Pier Guidi.

While mostly known for its bright “Rosso Red” liveries through the years, the two factory backed entries pay homage to the Ferrari 125S from 1947, the first racing sports car produced by marque.

Both of the turbocharged prancing horses are new chassis, with last year’s No. 71 car having gone to Clearwater Racing, with the Calado and Gianmaria Bruni-driven No. 51 car from 2016 yet to be allocated.
