Ferrari’s Special Projects division has taken the wraps off its latest and greatest creation, the SP48 Unica. The bespoke two-seater V8-powered Ferrari SP48 Unica supercar is based on the F8 Tributo but it also features elements from the carmaker’s other iconic offerings. 

The SP48 Unica may share its platform with the F8, but some of the design cues seems borrowed from Ferrari’s new hybrid offering, the 296GTB. For instance, the front grille which features a honeycomb pattern, and sits beneath the sleek headlights and the vent. 

The Unica also features a blacked-out A-pillar, which gives what Ferrari calls a “visor effect,” with the roof. The Italian marque has also incorporated narrower windows and completely omitted a rear windshield and in its place is a patterned strip that is neatly tucked into the rear wing. 

The side gets repositioned air intakes to aid the side-mounted radiators. Ferrari has also carved some additional intakes in the upper bodywork, to feed additional aid to the intercoolers. Even the round tail-lights seen on the F8 are out and what you get instead is a thin rectangular strip which covers the entire width of the car. 

While details of the cabin and interiors are still under wraps, the Ferrari SP48 Unica is said to get black Alcantara upholstery and the same hexagonal motifs seen on the front end. We also suspect that most of the F8’s interior has been carried over, albeit with red-orange accents. 

Under the hood, the supercar may pack the same twin-turbo 3.9-litre V8 from the F8 Tributo, which makes 719hp and 770Nm of torque. While the F8 claims a 0-100kph sprint of 2.9 seconds, we expect the Unica to deliver a better time. 

As mentioned earlier, the Ferrari SP48 Unica is a one-off model that is commissioned by an unnamed and insanely rich “long-standing” customer of the brand. It is likely the owner might’ve waited for over a year and shelled out around $2 million for the creation.
