Ferrari has extensively redesigned its F8 Tributo mid-engine supercar to create the SP48 Unica for a long-time customer.
The latest entry in the ultra-exclusive One-Off series, following last year’s V12-powered BR20, carries over mechanicals from the F8 Tributo, including its mid-mounted 710bhp twin-turbo V8.
Designed by the Ferrari Styling Center, it features an angular front end and a bold windowless rear with a wraparound light bar.
Other key differences include redesigned headlights and relocated cooling vents for the brakes.
Ferrari said this gives the SP48 – named because it is the company’s 48th special project car – its own unique look while being recognizable as the supercar it is based on.
Inside, it’s more closely related to the F8, with a liberal deployment of Alcantara upholstery and carbon fiber trim elements, but Ferrari claims to have created “the perfect combination of colors and trim to reflect the stylish personality , sporty and aggressive of the SP48 Unica”.
He added: “The SP48 Unica achieves its goal of transforming an existing model into a masterful effect, drawing inspiration from and paying homage to the company’s core values of innovation and passion.”
When creating the unique berlinetta, the designers made “extensive” use of 3D prototyping, which allowed them to digitally redesign much of the car, such as its grille and engine air intakes.
“This advanced production process has resulted in perfect 3D grilles that appear carved out of a solid volume, creating a sense of seamless continuity and dynamic fluidity,” said Ferrari.
