The 599 units have already been reserved. The most powerful 840 hp engine ever
Flavio Manzoni, head of the Ferrari design center, called it such an attractive car. A car that elevated the very concept of exclusivity. The new Ferrari Daytona SP3 is certainly exclusive: 599 models (a hundred more than the SP1 and SP2 Monza) sold to as many buyers at a price of 2 million euros (including tax). Wait times? End of 2022 for the delivery of the first models, between 2023 and 2024 for all the others.
The third chapter of Icona
Inspired by the 330 P4 which, in 1967, dominated the 24 Hours of Le Mans, monopolizing the podium and restoring the world title to Ferrari (thanks also to the victory at Monza) after years of Ford domination in the prototype championship, the Daytona SP3 represents the new chapter of the Icona project, which began in 2018 with the launch of SP1 and SP2 Monza. The engine, a V12 of 840 horsepower and 9500 rpm, is the most powerful in the history of Ferrari, explains the commercial director of the Maranello company, Enrico Galliera. Daytona SP3 an exciting work of art. Not a jump in the past, it does not refer to an iconic model, but rather to an iconic concept, making it current. This explains the choice to create a pure, non-electric car that restores the pleasure and excitement of driving.
Modern shapes, historical inspiration
The architecture, continues Galliera, derived from the LaFerrari, with materials also used in Formula 1. The Daytona SP3 with a removable roof can accelerate from 0 to 100 km/h in 2.85 seconds and from 0 to 200 in 7.4 . Maximum speed exceeding 340 km/h, dry weight 1485 kg. The design of great aesthetic impact, with voluminous fenders, a compact cabin, almost dramatic arched shapes. a car without active aerodynamics – continues Manzoni -, but there are “chimneys” on the side which load the air from below and then expel it towards the rear. A rear which, like that of the Monza, is monolithic and creates a volume effect. The rear light has a hidden light strip.
The enveloping passenger compartment, in the purest Ferrari style. The seat – an electric blue fabric combined with the typical red of 1960s racing prototypes – glued to the car. The flexible crankset. The screen (13 inches) and the dashboard offer a clear view and greater involvement behind the wheel. But the whole design is inspired by the past, but with a modern touch – continues Manzoni -. For the first time, however, we had the opportunity to think backwards, starting from the design. Purity and beauty of line are the hallmarks of the Ferrari Daytona SP3 which, like the SP1 and SP2, is not a car designed solely for a garage, but to be shown all over the world. Anyone who owns a Ferrari, says Galliera, wants to drive it, wants to show it off. He wants to take advantage of it.
The return to the World Endurance Championship
The launch of the Daytona SP3 – undisputed star of the Ferrari world finals scheduled these days at the Mugello circuit – in a way anticipates the great return of the prancing horse team in the endurance championships expected in 2023, 50 years after the last entry. at the 24 Hours of Le Mans.
