When a standard Ferrari just won't do, you ask Maranello to build one just for you.
Following V12-powered one-offs such as the Omologata and BR20, the latest unique creation from Ferrari has a V8 heart. The SP48 Unica is based on the F8 Tributo, but you wouldn't necessarily tell right away as the body has been largely redesigned. The one-of-a-kind creation was commissioned by a long-standing client who was involved in the development. The Prancing Horse goes as far as to say the buyer had their say in every step of the process.
The all-new front fascia was conceived using procedural-parametric modeling techniques and 3D prototyping. We notice some Roma influences as the SP48 Unica has a similar tridimensional effect for the grille. It gives the supercar a fresh frontal design compared to the oh-so-familiar F8 Tributo as well as the 488 and 458 that preceded it.
Ferrari doesn't say a word about any mechanical changes, so the one-off likely inherits the twin-turbo 3.9-liter V8 from the F8 Tributo. In that car, it's good for 710 horsepower and 770 Newton-meters (568 pound-feet) of torque to catapult the Italian stallion to 62 mph (100 km/h) in 2.9 seconds. It does 0 to 124 mph (200 km/h) in 7.8 seconds and maxes out at 211 mph (340 km/h).
There’s no word about price, but surely Ferrari asked quite a hefty premium for the SP48 Unica over the $280,000 F8 Tributo.
