The latest in the series of Ferrari Special Projects (SP) cars is the special project 38 or simply the SP 38. It is based on the 488 GTB and inspired by the F40.
Ferrari launched its Special Projects Programme in 2007. This special division offers Ferrari’s most loyal and wealthy customers a chance to personalize their car and distinguish them from other Ferraris on the road, so to say the One-Off models.
The SP38 was built for one of Ferrari’s most dedicated customer who has a deep passion for racing, although the name of the customer has not yet been revealed. According to Ferrari’s statement, the car was “unveiled at Fiorano where, after the ceremonial handover … the car was immediately put through its paces in a series of hot laps.”
The SP38 is based on the chassis and running gear of the 488 GTB, while the general direction of the project is homage to the F40. The visual mass of the SP38 is concentrated over the rear wheels which stretch to a more wedged and dagger-like front fascia. The rear wing and engine cover are inspired by the F40, while the slim front bumper lip is reminiscent of the 308 GTB. The headlights were designed to be as thin as possible. “A full Tailor Made cabin trim puts the finished touches” says Ferrari.
You can catch this amazing one-off masterpiece at Concorso d’Eleganza Villa d’Este on Saturday, 26th May.
