Macau's much-anticipated grand prix doesn't kick off until next week but the celebration has already started.

The Ferrari team is getting an image makeover from A Bathing Ape, now managed by local fashion retailer I.T.

The Japanese fashion brand has redone Ferrari's 458 Italia GT3 in green camouflage, along with matching shirts and caps for the team crew.

The design was unveiled on Friday night at Ferrari's new showroom in Repulse Bay. More fashion fans than racing fans turned out for the event. Models Ana Rivera and Linah Matsuoka made an appearance, while artist Simon Birch mingled with Tomoaki "Nigo" Nagao, the brand's legendary founder. An occasional DJ, he also spinned for the party.

The Ferrari showroom was transformed into A Bathing Ape nightclub with camouflage decorations on the walls and free-flowing bubbles and canapés.
