Ferrari unveil the limited edition, Daytona SP3
Ferrari has revealed the Daytona SP3, a limited-edition nostalgic vehicle inspired by iconic 1960s racing prototypes that helped the firm gain its motorsport fame. The Daytona SP3 will be limited to just 599 units and will retail in Italy for 2 million euros.
The Ferrari Daytona SP3 pays homage to the Ferrari 330 P3/4, which won the 24 Hours of Daytona in 1967. Powering the SP3 is an 840PS, naturally aspirated V12, mounted at the mid-rear of the car. The Daytona SP3 also produces 697 Nm of torque and has a red line as high as 9,500 rpm.
Ferrari also claims a 0-100 kmph time of 2.85 seconds and a top speed of 340 kmph for the Daytona SP3.
The Ferrari Daytona SP3 is touted to be Ferrari's most aerodynamically efficient vehicle ever manufactured, despite the absence of active aero components. The removable hard top and 'Targa' body style were also influenced by the brand's sports prototypes.
The Daytona SP3 has architectural beauty reminiscent of previous Ferrari sports prototypes, with sleek double-crested front wings. The geometry of the flanks is effectively denoted by the form of the wheel arches. It has an air box built into the butterfly doors to transport air to the side-mounted radiators.
The vehicle's taillights are constructed comprised of horizontal bars that run just below the spoiler and blend in well with the rest of the blades. The aggressive rear diffuser has two exhaust tips installed in the centre. The Daytona SP3 is inspired by the advanced engineering solutions that were already in use in racing in the 1960s.
Pirelli P Zero Corsa tyres created expressly for the Daytona SP3 improve stability in low-grip conditions, while Ferrari's innovative Dynamic Enhancer feature regulates brake calliper pressure during severe cornering to optimise yaw angle.
Deliveries for the Ferrari Daytona SP3 are planned to begin at the end of next year and be finished in 2024 with top priority being given to Ferrari SP1 and SP2 owners.
