Ferrari SP48 Unica is a one-off F8 Tributo with smoother styling
  • Meet the Ferrari SP48 Unica, the latest one-off from the Italian supercar company.
  • Based on the F8 Tributo, the SP48’s styling is more reminiscent of the 296GTB, with a darkened A-pillar and a lower side air intake.
  • A hexagonal pattern appears throughout the car, most prominently on the grille and in the center of the roof.

    The Ferrari F8 Tributo is a sly, exotic supercar covered in sharp creases and gaping vents, powered by a 710-horsepower twin-turbo 3.9-liter V-8. But for some people, even that isn’t enough, and that’s where Ferrari’s Special Projects team steps in, designing bespoke creations for the Italian brand’s most affluent customers. The SP48 Unica, seen here, is Ferrari’s latest one-off, unveiled today and based on the F8.

    While riding on the platform of the F8, the SP48 Unica’s design feels more like Ferrari’s latest hybrid offering, the 296GTB. The front grille has been overhauled with an intricate honeycomb pattern and sits below horizontal vented headlights, much like the 296. The SP48 also mimics its hybrid V-6 sibling with a darkened A-pillar, creating what Ferrari calls a “visor effect” with the roof. Ferrari says the side windows are narrower, while the rear window is gone and replaced with a patterned strip that wraps back into the rear wing. Air intakes just in front of that wing mirror the grille and roof design.

    Car and driver

    Ferrari says it moved an intercooler intake behind the side windows, allowing designers to reduce the size of the scoops cut into the body just in front of the rear wheels. The round taillights of the F8 have been replaced by thin rectangular units that span the entire width of the car and are placed above a sturdy diffuser. There are no photos of the cabin, but Ferrari says the seats and much of the upholstery is black Alcantara, and the hexagonal motif of the exterior continues inside.

    The SP48 was made for an old Ferrari buyer and there’s no word on the price, but we think it was a hefty sum on top of the F8’s $283,950 starting price.
