Ferrari’s latest bespoke supercar has been revealed, with the Italian car-maker taking the roof off the now-defunct F8 Spider to create its newest ‘Special Project’ model. The new masterpiece comes from Ferrari’s ultra-exclusive Special Projects program, revealing an exotic car designed to deliver peak performance while offering bespoke customization.
The new special-edition Ferrari derives its look, performance, and name from the F8 Spider, but there is a ton of unique and exclusive hardware making this thing unique. Take the front fascia for example, which features a uniquely wide front grille, constructed from a single 3D-printed mold. The design is inspired by the brand’s vintage models, complete with vertical strakes. It sports a two-tone aesthetic, where matte black functional central areas intersect with luxurious carbon fiber sections.
What sets the SP-8 apart is its distinctive feature – a roofless design, transforming it into a purebred two-seater roadster. This design choice not only underscores its sporty character but also delivers an exhilarating open-air driving experience. The lights are also unique at both ends, with bespoke headlight lenses and Roma-inspired tail lights. A few parts are even borrowed from the 296 GTB, including the windshield and the exhaust design.
Inside, the central console has been modified to accommodate the F1 gearbox commands, a feature that’s been part of the Ferrari lineage since the SF90 Stradale. Seats boast laser-etched Navy Blue Alcantara coupled with gradient-effect cloth, complementing carpets in specific twill fabric for an iridescent finish.
The exterior’s matte Argento Micalizzato color harmoniously blends with glossy iridescent Blue Sandstone on the carbon-fiber section. Even the Blu Scuro Stellato color linking the two bodywork sections was specifically developed, showcasing Ferrari’s commitment to bespoke craftsmanship.
The Ferrari SP-8 comes equipped with the same twin-turbocharged 3.9-liter V-8 engine as the standard F8 models mounted behind the seats produces 710 horsepower and 568 pound-feet of torque in the F8, the engine is claimed to propel the car to repeatable sub-3.0-second times to 60 mph.
The Ferrari SP-8 will first make its public appearance at the Mugello Circuit for the Finali Mondiali Ferrari 2023, followed by a showcase at the Ferrari Museum in Maranello from November 16, 2023, to March 2024.
