Italian car manufacturer Ferrari has revealed their latest vehicle and it is most certainly one to remember. As Dom Tripolone writes over on News Australia, Ferrari have named the new vehicle the Daytona SP3, paying homage to the heritage in motorsport and the one-two-three finish at the Daytona 24-hour race back in 1967.
As a bit of a backstory, the finish at the race mentioned above comes after they were decimated by Ford at the 1966 Le Mans 24 Hour Race, which was recently brought back into the limelight with the Ford v Ferrari movie.
This absolute beast of a vehicle will be limited edition - meaning there will only be a select number of them available. In fact, Ferrari has announced it will only be creating 599 examples of the vehicle, with prices starting at €2m/$3.1m. In Australia, it is expected to be above the $4m mark.
It is also worth noting that even if you were able to come up with the amount required, Ferrari will often prioritise their sales of limited edition models to owners who have purchased vehicles with them in the past.
The Daytona SP3 is set to feature a mid-mounted non-turbocharged 6.5-litre V12 engine, making 618kW and 697Nm. It revs all the way up to 9500rpm too! Additionally, it is paired with a seven-speed dual-clutch auto. With the most powerful engine ever built by Ferrari, the Daytona SP3 can sprint from 0-100km/h in 2.85 seconds and reach a top speed of over 340km/h.
Featuring butterfly wing doors, a targa roof with a removable hard top and a muscular, sleek design, the Daytona SP3 looks absolutely stunning, as evidenced by the photographs showcased within our update here on Sparesbox.
This theme continues within the body, with seats integrated to the body as opposed to the chassis as is typical with normal cars. What this means is that the occupants within the Daytona SP3 will sit lower and more reclined than they otherwise would.An added benefit of this is that the car is 1142mm tall, helping to reduce drag by improving aerodynamics.
