The Ferrari SP48 Unica is a One-off Tributo with more refined styling.
Ferrari SP48 Unica – Overview
The Ferrari F8 Tributo is a sleek, exotic supercar with sharp creases and gaping vents driven by a 710-horsepower twin-turbo 3.9-liter V-8 engine.
However, even that is not enough for others, where Ferrari’s Special Projects team comes in, creating unique creations for the Italian marque’s wealthiest customers.
Ferrari’s next one-off, the SP48 Unica, was presented today based on the F8.
Here are the major highlights:
- Meet the Ferrari SP48 Unica, the Italian supercar manufacturer’s next one-off.
- With a blacked-out A-pillar and a lower side air scoop, the SP48 is more reminiscent of the 296GTB than the F8 Tributo.
- The front grille and the middle of the roof have a hexagonal pattern that runs throughout the vehicle.
Following V12-powered one-offs like the Omologata and BR20, Ferrari’s latest unique creation has a V8 heart.
The SP48 Unica is built on the F8 Tributo, but the body has been altered so that you would not know it.
Instead, a long-time client involved in the development commissioned the one-of-a-kind design. According to The Prancing Horse, the buyer had a say in every step of the process.
Procedural-parametric modeling and 3D prototyping were used to create the all-new front fascia.
We can see some Roma inspirations in the SP48 Unica’s grille, which has a similar tridimensional look.
Compared to the oh-so-familiar F8 Tributo and the 488 and 458 that came before, the supercar provides a fresh frontal look.
After eliminating the glass and replacing the quad spherical taillights with narrow LED bars that also give off a Roma vibe, the back is significantly sleeker than before.
Aside from a redesigned wheel design, the SP48 Unica sports modified side air intakes are located significantly lower on the profile.
The side skirts likewise make more extensive use of black surfaces.
While no interior photographs have been provided, the adjacent official video demonstrates that the cabin is virtually unchanged from the F8 Tributo.
In addition, the “SP48 Unica” badge is prominently displayed on the passenger side of the dashboard, despite the missing rear window.
The seats also include laser-perforated Alcantara, which has been used in other areas of the otherwise familiar interior.
Because Ferrari makes no mention of any mechanical alterations, the one-off is likely to inherit the F8 Tributo’s twin-turbo 3.9-liter V8.
It produces 710 horsepower and 770 Newton-meters (568 pound-feet) of torque in that automobile, allowing the Italian stallion to reach 62 mph (100 km/h) in 2.9 seconds.
Moreover, it accelerates from 0 to 124 mph (200 km/h) in 7.8 seconds and offers a maximum speed of 211 mph or (340 kmph).
The SP48 was built for a long-time Ferrari customer, and there is no word on how much it cost, but we are guessing it was a lot more than the F8’s starting price of $283,950.
