September 28th 2022 ,Maranello– The Ferrari SP51, designed by the head of Ferrari Styling Centre-Flavio Manzoni, was unveiled today joining the most exclusive group in Maranello’s range: unique, absolutely bespoke cars crafted to the specifications of a client.
The Ferrari One-Off, SP51, was designed for a long-standing leading Taiwanese collector .The SP51 is a front-engined V12 spider based on the 812 GTS platform from which it inherits its layout, chassis and engine.
At first sight, the stunning new car’s most striking characteristic is its total absence of a roof, making it an authentic roadster in every respect, accentuating both its sporty character and ability to captivate both visually and in terms of en plein air driving exhilaration.
The SP51’s styling is both powerful and harmonious, thanks to its seamlessly muscular, undulating surfaces. Its forms are modern, sinuous and sensual at once, in great part as a result of the extensive use of bare carbon-fibre both on the exterior and in the cabin. The trim on the bonnet is particularly striking as it dynamically frames the two air vents.
Another most captivating features is its new Rosso Passionale three-layer paintwork – the colour was developed specifically for the car to give it an elegant imposing character that also exudes authority. It is further enhanced by the blue and white livery inspired by a legendary 1955 Ferrari 410 S which runs the length of the car into the interior.
Specially-designed headlights give the SP51 an instantly recognisable identity . Also noteworthy are the wheels, which are specific to the car and have carbon-fibre wing profiles on each of the spokes which also feature a sophisticated tone-on-tone diamond-cut finish on the forward-facing section.
The special finish for the door panels, the lower section of the dashboard and the sides of the seats, comprising a blue Kvadrat® insert with white cross-stitching, also picks up the livery. Glossy carbon-fibre trim has been extensively used throughout the interior where it pairs very harmoniously with the Nero Momo Opaco elements. This stylishly elegant and authoritative look is further enhanced by several white embroidered details (including the Prancing Horse and car logo, also found on the lower rim of the steering wheel).
