Ferrari’s New One-Off SP48 Unica Is So Gorgeous We Can't Stop Staring
Ferrari's SP48 Unica is an exquisite one-off based on the F8 Tributo. Along with the taut lines and aggressive stance, the iridescent orange supercar also borrows the F8's twin-turbocharged V-8 engine and likely produces the same 710 hp and 568 ft-lbs of torque. Even with the similarities, the SP48 has enough tweaks to the sleek design to make it stand apart.
The Ferrari Styling Centre designers and Maranello's engineers needed to completely redesign the front grille and engine air intakes as well. The magnificent redesign resulted in perfect 3D grilles that have the appearance of a solid shape carved to "create a sense of seamless continuity and dynamic fluidity."
Nothing about this awe-inspiring vehicle is lost when you move to its interior. The F8 Tributo's heritage remains intact, but features a combination of color and trim that exemplifies the Unica's "sleek, sporty and aggressive personality." Black Alcantara is found on the seats and most of the cabin trim, and there are subtle bursts of iridescent orange fabric that match the exterior color.
This Italian sports car is surely a head-turner.
