Ferrari’s Special Project Division is tasked with developing and creating unique supercars for the brand’s best customers. The latest bespoke car from Maranello was commissioned by a Taiwanese customer, and is based on the F8 Spider model. Known as the Ferrari SP-8, this roofless roadster combines the Prancing Horse’s current design work with some of its historic models.
The Ferrari SP-8 might be based on the F8 Spider, but there is a ton of unique and exclusive hardware making this thing unique. Take the front fascia for example, which features a uniquely wide front grille, constructed from a single 3D-printed mold. The design is inspired by the brand’s vintage models, complete with vertical strakes. The roof mechanism from the F8 has also been thrown in the trash, as this special project is a genuine roadster. The lights are also unique at both ends, with bespoke headlight lenses and Roma-inspired tail lights. A few parts are even borrowed from the 296 GTB, including the windshield and the exhaust design.
The rear engine cover is also a bit of a retro affair, with large strakes once again harking back to previous Ferrari models. Fans of the brand might also see some F40 inspiration in the new wheels, which feature a similar directional five-spoke pattern. The buyer of this particular one-off selected the striking Argento Micalizzato hue with Blue Sandstone-painted carbon accents.
The Ferrari SP-8 comes equipped with the same twin-turbocharged 3.9-liter V-8 engine as the standard F8 models. That means the owner will have 710 hp and 568 lb-ft of torque to work with out back. While Ferraris are often known for their exquisite leather hides, this particular unit has been outfitted with a high-end cloth and Alcantara interior. Things are equally as unique throughout the interior, including a bespoke gated-style shifter similar to the one found in the SF90 and 296.
The Ferrari Special Project Division will display this latest creation at Mugello in Italy through the end of the Finali Mondiali Ferrari 2023 event on October 30. From there, the car will take a brief stopover at the Ferrari Museum in Maranello, where it will stay until March 2024. That’s a long time to wait for your new supercar, but this is surely not the only crazy Ferrari that this owner has at their disposal.
