A special unique Ferrari: the SP38

When Maranello, aka Ferrari, agrees to build a one-off car for a customer, you can imagine that said customer is a very special one. The SP38 was built for “one of Ferrari’s most dedicated customers” which tells you that the guy, or gal, has many other Rarris in the garage, and many dollars to spend.

The “dedicated customer” was looking for a modern creation inspired by the most famous of turbocharged Ferraris, the F40. The most notable design element that harks back to the F40 is the rear wing, integrated directly into the clamshell-type engine cover.

The SP38 is based on a 488 GTB, itself powered by a twin-turbocharged 3.9-litre V8. Its 661-horsepower send the car to 100 km/h in 3 seconds so even if the SP38’s bodywork and aero have in any way, shape or form, a negative effect on performance, the car will still be fast. Physically, the Ferrari SP38 is stunning.
