Ferrari has revealed an all new Icona model called the Daytona SP3.
There is no such thing as a common Ferrari, yet some are unquestionably more unique. The limited-run “Icona” specialities that sit high up in the Italian company’s hierarchy, the automobiles that only the brand’s most devoted (and wealthy) customers are allowed to acquire, receive the company’s finest efforts. The latest of these is the Daytona SP3, which was just introduced at Ferrari’s Finali Mondiali event at the Mugello circuit in Italy. It looks simply fantastic.
The new hypercar is built to be a racer from the ground up, drawing inspiration from Ferrari’s epic victory in the 1967 24 Hours of Daytona, when it took home all three top places. The mid-engine car, which uses an improved version of the 812 Superfast’s 6.5-liter V12, can produce 828 horsepower and 514 pound-feet of torque through its seven-speed dual-clutch transmission, allowing it to go from 0-62mph in 2.85 seconds and 0-124mph in 7.4 seconds.
The SP3 shares its mid-engine arrangement with a massive V-12 positioned behind the passenger compartment, and its design pays apparent homage to the strong proportions of those sports-car racers.
Price and anticipated production figures are glaringly lacking from the official publication. This is one of those Ferraris that will only be available to the company’s most affluent customers. It’s hard to think that many of them will object to what will almost definitely be a seven-figure price tag, and it’s unlikely that production will exceed the Monza SP1 and SP2’s 500-unit cap.
This car is “aimed solely at Ferrari’s top clients and collectors, proud ambassadors for the Prancing Horse marque.,” according to the official release. That would be a fantastic club to join, but it would also be too expensive.
