The Ferrari Daytona SP3 is among the most striking new models that the Italian carmaker has introduced in recent years and one example was recently spotted on the streets near Ferrari’s Italian headquarters.
The Daytona SP3 is the third member of the Icona series following on from the Monza SP1 and Monza SP2 but it promises even greater performance. While it has been five months since the car’s unveiling, we haven’t had a good chance to see it on public roads until now.
This particular Daytona SP3 has some patches of black and white camouflage across its exterior, suggesting that it could be one of Ferrari’s test cars. While these pieces do hide some parts of its design, there’s no denying that the supercar stands out and makes a remarkable impression on the road. It might not be the absolute craziest supercar on earth but to our eyes, it is certainly one of the most beautiful.
In creating the Daytona SP3, Ferrari’s designers were inspired by the P3/4, P330, and 412P that raced throughout the 1960s. Other Ferrari models of yesteryear also contributed to its design, including the 330 P4 of 1967 and the 512 S that was built between 1969 and 1970.
The car is underpinned by the same carbon fiber monocoque as the LaFerrari but ditches the hybrid powertrain. Instead, the SP3 is powered by a naturally aspirated 6.5-liter V12 tweaked to pump out 829 hp at 9,250 rpm and 514 lb-ft (697 Nm) of torque at 7,250 rpm, making this the most powerful ICE model ever built by Ferrari. Drive is sent to the rear wheels courtesy of a seven-speed dual-clutch transmission and a limited-slip differential. Just 599 examples will be produced with each starting at €2 million ($2.19 million)
