Ferrari SP48 Unica: A unique car for a special client
The last time something like this happened was when the folks at Bentley Orlando created a bespoke space-themed Bentayga Speed for one special customer using Mulliner’s extensive capability.
Now, Ferrari has followed suit with its one-off SP48 Unica model which joins the exclusive group in Maranello’s production. The bespoke Ferrari SP48 Unica has been crafted to the specification of a single client and designed according to their own individual requirements.
Based on the F8 Tributo, and designed by the brand’s Styling Centre under the direction of Flavio Manzoni the Design Officer, the model makes extensive use of “procedural-parametric modelling” techniques and 3D prototypic. This has enabled the Ferrari to entirely redesign the front grille and engine air intakes resulting in 3D grilles that seem carved from a solid volume.
A unique style approach
Gone is the rear window as well as quad round taillights and they have now been replaced by slim LED bars. The Ferrari SP8 Unica also features a new wheel design, different side air intakes plus black surfaces for the side skirts.
When compared to the F8 Tributo, the SP48 Unica comes with different air intakes on the front bumper and beneath the rear spoiler. The interior remains largely unchanged with the exception of the rear screen and specially-developed black laser-perforated Alcantara on the seats and most of the cabin trim.
The interior further features polished sill covers with the same laser-embossed hexagonal motif, matte carbon-fibre as well as Grigio Canna di Fucile accents.
According to Ferrari, the SP48 Unica has been designed for a long-standing client who was deeply involved in every step of its creation. There isn’t any word on who the special client is and how much the creation has cost but surely it didn’t come cheap.
