  • New Ferrari SP-8 revealed
  • Supercar created by Ferrari Special Projects
  • Totally unique design
  • Based on the F8 underneath
  • 3.9-litre twin-turbo V8
  • Just one to be made

Ferrari has revealed the latest model in its one-off series, the SP-8. It’s been created by the brand’s Special Projects division, a team dedicated to creating unique models for its best, and wealthiest customers.

The SP-8 is based on the F8 supercar, meaning it uses a 3.9-litre twin-turbocharged V8 engine. Unlike the F8 Spider, this unique car has no roof, which is how you can tell it’s not going to a customer from the UK.

New Ferrari SP-8 design

While the Ferrari SP-8 may be the same as the F8 under the skin, it has a completely unique design. That is what this customer has paid the big bucks for after all.

The use of unpainted carbon fibre plays a big part in this car’s aesthetic. The entire front end is finished in bare carbon, and it wraps around the cabin as well as the lower half with contrasting silver paint on the rear of the car.

The SP-8 also has a different front-end design, with an all-new front bumper and sleek headlights. They look a little bit like the lights you’d find on the Ferrari 360 from the early 2000s, albeit in a more modern form.

Another feature which is unique to this car is the lack of a roof. That wouldn’t be much use to a buyer in rainy England, however the SP-8 is unlikely to be used in adverse weather conditions anyway.

New Ferrari SP-8 engine and performance

Under the new metalwork, the Ferrari SP-8 shares parts with the F8 supercar. This means it has a 3.9-litre twin-turbocharged V8 with 710hp and 770Nm of torque.

See how the Ferrari F8 gets on in a drag race…

The F8 will do 0-60mph in 2.9 seconds. While there’s no official figure for the SP-8, it’s likely to be lighter than the F8 so this time may be slightly quicker.

Can I buy a Ferrari SP-8?

In a word, no. The SP-8 was created by Ferrari’s Special Projects programme, a department which makes unique one-offs for the brand’s wealthiest customers.

If you’d like Ferrari to make you a one-off supercar, you’d need to have infinitely deep pockets, as well as a connection with someone at Maranello.
