Patrick Dempsey shows off a shock of white hair while Jack O’Connell takes a drive as they film the Adam Driver-starring Ferrari in Italy

Patrick Dempsey and Jack O’Connell both revealed their characters’ looks on the upcoming Michael Mann–directed film Ferrari while shooting in Italy on Tuesday.

The 56-year-old Grey’s Anatomy star and the 32-year-old Skins actor were on set in Modena, where they were joined by actress Sarah Gadon, 35.

The film, which is the Heat director’s first feature film in seven years, stars Adam Driver as Enzo Ferrari, the founder of the legendary sports cars that bear his name.

Patrick appears in the long-gestating project — which was first discussed back in 2000 — as the Italian race car driver Piero Taruffi, who died in 1988 at 81.

His costume featured a charcoal button-up sweater vest, which he wore atop a cream-colored shirt.

Patrick was seen early in September sporting platinum blond hair after bleaching it, but he seemed to have bleached it further for a completely white hairdo to match the racer.

The film and TV star was spotted during some down time as he walked past a black Range Rover and climbed into the back seat of a black sedan.

Jack, who was a dead ringer for the racer Peter Collins with his chiseled jaw, was seen seated at the wheel of a gorgeous red 335 S Spider Scaglietti from 1957 (or a copy of the original).

The vehicle, which Time dubbed ‘the most expensive car ever sold at auction,’ only had four of the 1957 model were ever made, making it incredibly rare and desirable for collectors.

One of those four cars sold at auction in 2016 for around $36 million.

The dating of the car indicates that the scene is set shortly before Collins untimely death from a crash at the 1958 German Grand Prix.

He also had on brown leather–lined goggles to protect his eyes in the convertible, which appeared to leave a layer of dust and dirt on the rest of his face. 

The Starred Up actor appeared to be driving the sleek red vehicle into a boxy brick Ferrari factory, with the brand’s distinctive name and font affixed above the entranceway. 

A second version of the same car was lined up right behind his, with a dark-haired driver in a brown leather jacket behind the wheel, though it wasn’t clear if it was another actor on the project or just an assistant driving.

Crew members could be seen mulling around the red-brick building while Jack and the other driver navigated their classic cars.

True Detective actress Sarah Gadon was caught filming a scene in which she rode in the back of a blue taxi up to the factory.

She appeared to have her hair styled long and elegantly coiffed, and she wore a pink-and-white ensemble.

The Canadian star appears in the Ferrari as the actress Linda Christian. She infamously was seen in a photo from the 1957 Mille Miglia race as she leaned in to the driver’s seat to kiss the racer Alfonso de Portago — played in Ferrari by Gabriel Leone — just minutes before he drove away and had a disastrous crash that killed him, his navigator and nine unlucky spectators.
