Ferrari’s most aerodynamic car ever.
The new Ferrari Daytona SP3 has been unveiled as the automaker’s third entrant into their Icona line. Inspired by the 330 P3/4, the 312 P and the 350 Can-Am, the new Daytona SP3 has a wild design that is honestly unlike anything in Ferrari’s lineup. But it’s not just looks that make it so special, it also is packed with power.
Powering the new Ferrari Daytona SP3 is the same 6.5-liter V12 from the 812 Competizione, but it’s been tinkered with quite a bit. The result of Ferrari’s enhancements to the engine comes out to 828 horsepower and 514 lb-ft of torque, making it the most powerful engine the automaker has ever built. Ferrari notes that it will be able to sprint from 0 to 60 mph in 2.86 seconds and will sprint from 0 to 124 mph in 7.4 seconds.
To allow the Ferrari Daytona SP3 to truly take advantage of its engine’s power, the engineers have equipped the supercar with the company’s most aerodynamically efficient body ever. What’s more, Ferrari managed this feat without having to implement active aero. But the body is more than just an efficient creation, it’s also downright gorgeous and unlike anything currently in Ferrari’s lineup. The wheel arches in the front and rear and clearly inspired by the classic models and give the Daytona SP3 a very muscular appearance. But the most intriguing and exciting design aspect of the new Daytona is the rear where horizontal slats go from wheel to wheel, creating an amazing visual that’s honestly not expected from modern Ferraris.
Inside, the driver and passenger will peer onto the road through a wraparound windscreen and they’ll be resting in seats that are integrated into the chassis. Because the seats are fixed, the driver will have to adjust the pedal box to find the right spot. Ferrari’s main focus with this interior was to create a “snug” experience that’s inspired by competition cars, and it’s obvious to see from the pictures in the gallery down below. The new Daytona SP3 is a perfect car for someone wanting to experience Ferrari’s racing competition heritage in a modern setting.
In regards to the delivery dates, production numbers, or price of the Ferrari Daytona SP3, that’s currently unknown. But, we will keep you up to date when more information is released.
