Ferrari SP48 Unica

Based on the F8 Tributo, Ferrari’s Special Projects division has created a new individual one-off for a VIP customer. The model name SP48 Unica indicates a number of things. On the one hand, this is already the 48th project of the SP department. On the other hand, the customer attached great importance to something unique. To this end, he worked closely with Ferrari’s chief designer Flavio Manzoni. Compared with the F8 Tributo, the one-off received a more aggressive, arrow-shaped design for the front end. This was made possible by a new design of the LED headlights and a relocation of the air intakes for brake cooling. To create various details such as the perforated front bumper and sculpted tailgate, Ferrari uses 3D prototyping (additive manufacturing) and procedural parametric modeling techniques. On the windows, roof and engine cover, the car received procedurally graphic solutions for the color transition from red to black.

Apart from the omission of the rear window, the interior appears very similar to the F8 Tributo. However, the coming owner placed a high value on a perfect combination of colors and equipment. Black, laser-perforated Alcantara is installed on the seats and large areas of the interior trim, through which orange-red fabric shimmers. The perforations pick up on the hexagonal motif of the radiator grille and procedural roof paintwork. This is also laser-cut into the polished sill covers. Matt carbon and metallic accents in Grigio Canna di Fucile skilfully round off the cockpit. No changes have been made to the V8 biturbo engine with 530 kW/720 hp from 3.9 liters of displacement or the seven-speed dual-clutch transmission. In the F8 Tributo, this power is sufficient to accelerate from a standstill to 62 mph in 2.9 seconds and to reach a topspeed of 211 mph.
