Ferrari’s Special Projects programme is doing some pretty cool things.
The Italian automaker is allowing its top clients to create unique vehicles, designed and built together with its own design and engineering teams.
With that, Ferrari just unveiled a new, one-of-a-kind, custom SP48 Unica.
The new bright-red supercar is based on the F8 Tributo, which an anonymous owner and Flavio Manzoni, the company’s chief design officer, worked on together.
Just like the F8 Tributo, this new baby has a twin-turbocharged V-8 engine, which likely gets the same 710 horsepower and 568 ft-lbs of torque, reported Robb Report.
In fact, the performance is pretty excellent, coming in hot with an improved aerodynamic balance that cuts overall drag by 12%.
Compared to the F8 Tributo, there are some interesting new changes to this custom car.
This latest Ferrari has a more pointed body, with headlights and taillights completely redone to suit the arrow-like shape.
To give the appearance that the car was created from a single piece of metal, the front window was made to have a visor effect, making it seem as if it extends onto the roof. That dynamic is emphasized by smaller side windows and a completely eliminated rear window.
Elsewhere, the front grille was fully redesigned to have a 3-D effect, and its hexagonal pattern reappears on the roof and in the interior of the car.
The colour and trim were also updated to better suit the custom aesthetic, with black Alcantara on the seats and most of the cabin trim, as well as pops of red-orange fabric that match the Unica’s exterior colour.
Quite the stunner.
