On November 20, 2021, at Scarperia e San Piero, at the Mugello racetrack, the limited edition Targa body with removable hardtop was presented. At its side, the predecessors, the Ferrari Monza SP1 and SP2, could not be missed. The Daytona SP3 was inspired by the legendary sports prototypes of the 1960s. Everyone still remembers February 6, 1967: On that day, Ferrari performed one of the most spectacular feats in its history at the Daytona 24H race. Side by side they crossed the finish line and drove the first three places into the Ferrari stable. Since then, the three fundamental areas, engine, chassis and aerodynamics, have been improved to give this model maximum performance as well. The chassis is made entirely of composite materials and uses Formula 1 technologies not used in a road car since the LaFerrari, the last supercar from Maranello. To save weight and maintain the feeling of driving a race car, the seat is integrated into the chassis. The Ferrari Daytona SP3 offers not only exhilarating driving pleasure, but also usable performance.CONTACT CONFIGURATOR
The Daytona SP3 is equipped with the most exciting naturally aspirated V12 engine on the market. Ferrari chose the 812 Competizione's engine as a starting point, but moved it to the rear center to optimize intake, exhaust and fluid dynamic efficiency. The result: The F140HC engine is the most powerful internal combustion engine ever built by Ferrari, delivering a massive 840 cubic inches with the typical intoxicating power and sound of a prancing horse V12. This engine produces 840 horsepower and has a torque of 697 Newton meters at a maximum speed of 9’500 rpm. Thanks to the clever integration of these technical innovations, the car can accelerate from zero to 100 km/h in 2.8 seconds and from zero to 200 km/h in just 7.4 seconds. The 7-speed transmission, which is even faster and more satisfying than ever before thanks to the development of specific strategies, sets new standards in its category. The Icona cars are equipped with exclusive solutions not found in the rest of the range and are aimed exclusively at Ferrari's best customers and collectors.
Through a carefully planned and executed strategy by Chief Design Officer Flavio Manzoni and his Styling Centre team, the Daytona SP3 achieved its ambitious design. The flowing masses blend effortlessly with the sharper surfaces to create the sense of aesthetic balance that has long been a signature of Maranello's design history. Its front is dominated by two imposing double-curved fenders. An efficient allusion to the geometry of the flanks is the shape of the wheel arches. The butterfly doors are another key element. For better visibility, its exterior mirrors are placed in front of the doors, at the top of the fenders, so that airflow to the door intakes is reduced. The rear bodywork emphasizes the wing's powerful appearance by repeating the twin-crest motif and aerodynamic venting that enhances its three-dimensional volume. Its bumper has a generous central grille framed by two pillars. The finishing touch is provided by the taillights, which are horizontal light bars mounted below the spoiler.
The interior is also clearly inspired by historic Ferraris such as the 330 P3/4, the 312 P and the 350 Can-Am. A visual extension was made by a clear separation between the slim and tight dashboard, the design of the door trim and the two seats recessed into the chassis. These, along with the driver's adjustable pedal box, allowed the seats to be anchored to the rear fascia. Viewed from the side, the cut of the windshield header forms a vertical plane that divides the cockpit in half and separates the functional area of the dashboard, which houses the instruments, from the seats. The front section houses the gearshift gate, with the same human-machine interface (HMI) on the steering wheel that has already been resumed on the SF90 Stradale. The designers have created a carefully crafted space that offers the comfort and sophistication of a modern grand tourer: Extremely sporty and very elegant to boot.
