The Ferrari SP38, the latest offspring from Ferrari’s One-Off programme, has been unveiled at Fiorano where, after the ceremonial handover to one of Ferrari’s most dedicated customers, the car was immediately put through its paces in a series of hot laps. Designed by the Ferrari Design Centre on the chassis and running gear of the 488 GTB, this unique car is made with the specific vision of a client with a passion for racing.

The result is a model that can be driven both on road and on track. The all-new bodywork, in a newly conceived three-layer metallic red, is nowhere near the donor car. Compared to the 488 chassis, the visual mass of SP38 appears concentrated over the rear wheels as the wedge design sharply stretches towards the front.

Specific inset headlights were designed to be as thin as possible, with the mandatory DRL (daytime running lights) units relocated to add functionality to a slim bumper lip reminiscent of the 308 GTB. On the side, the air scoop of the 488 GTB is completely concealed where the sheet metal folds in on itself from the low beltline on the door and into the rear wheelarch and three-quarter light.

The dynamic styling continues over the engine cover, which sheds its rear glass and is treated as a flip-up assembly in carbon fibre with shutlines slashing the flanks reminiscent of the F40’s. Three transversal slats slash across the engine cover to evacuate engine heat, and the integration of a substantial rear spoiler is a hint at the famous rear wing of the F40.

Also Watch:


The trailing edge of the spoiler links with the wing and with the aerodynamic diffuser at the bottom, to create a suggestive frame surrounding the tail volume. A full Tailor Made cabin trim puts the finished touches on this special Ferrari, which will be on public display for the first time at the upcoming Concorso d’Eleganza Villa d’Este on 26th May 2018.
