At the Ferrari Finali Mondiali in Italy, Ferrari unveiled the latest addition to its One-Off series, the SP-8.
Part of the marque’s Special Projects program and designed by the Flavio Manzoni-headed Ferrari Styling Centre, the vehicle has a mid-rear-engine V8, based on the F8 Spider– from which it inherits its layout, chassis and engine.
The SP-8’s most unique feature is the fact that it has no roof, meaning the vehicle demanded extensive refining of its aerodynamics through a combination of CFD simulations, wind tunnel testing and track testing to guarantee a standard of acoustic comfort and wind feeling comparable to the car that inspired it.
Inside the car, an important modification has been made to the central console to house the F1 gearbox commands that have featured in the Ferrari range since the debut of the SF90 Stradale. This meant modifying the shift-gate for this specific application.
The interior finish is completed with seats featuring details in laser-etched navy blue Alcantara, coupled with gradient effect cloth and carpets in specific twill fabric with an iridescent effect.
The matte argento micalizzato color created specifically for the SP-8 pairs with the car’s carbon-fiber section, which is finished in a glossy iridescent blue sandstone.
The SP-8 will be displayed at the Ferrari Museum in Maranello from November 16 until March 2024.
