This is Ferrari’s most aerodynamically efficient model ever – and it has no active aero.
Ferrari has expanded its Icona lineup with a third – the Daytona SP3. It’s the latest model in the series, which reinterprets classic Ferrari designs for the modern era. The Daytona, which debuted at Mugello Circuit during the 2021 Ferrari Finali Mondiali, reaches into the past to find influences from the 330 P3/4, 350 Can-Am, 512 S, and other Ferrari race cars. It joins the Monza SP1 and SP2 in the company’s Icona stable.
The Daytona has a wholly unique design that is the Ferrari’s most aerodynamically efficient model ever built. And that’s without any active aero bits and a more powerful – hotter – engine. Aerodynamics and cooling were vital components of the car’s design, resulting in large openings and intakes. Even the thick butterfly door features a large airbox that channels air to the side-mounted radiators.
