After the Monza SP 1 and Monza SP2, Ferrari presents its third model in the Icona series. The Car? Daytona SP3. Not that after the single-seat SP1 and the two-seat SP2, the SP3 is a three-seater, it is A special project No. 3. 599 units of the Italian sports car have already been sold. They have been offered to loyal customers of the brand.
Daytona, a name closely related to Ferrari, but was never used as a brand or series name. It’s the 365GTB/4 moniker, which the media gave the sports coupe at the time after Ferrari’s iconic victory at the 1967 24 Hours of Daytona. Ferrari triumphed 1-2-3 during the race with the 330 P3 in the succession/4, 330 P4 and 412 P. Not only does winning the race give the new sports car its calling sign, the sports car’s exterior has been looked down upon most emphatically on race cars.
Sharp and sensual lines of 330 types give rise to the latest in Daytona SP3 his character. It is a two-seater with a circular length of 4.69 meters, width 2.05 meters and a height of 1.14 meters. The wheelbase is 2.65 metres. The sports car, however, shares axle distance with the LaFerrari, a strictly convertible supercar from Ferrari. In terms of dimensions, this Limited Edition comes in at 4.70, 2.04 and 1.15 meters in length, width and height, respectively, and is therefore very close to the dimensions of the Daytona SP3.
Technical base of Ferrari
Ferrari says the Daytona SP3 uses a carbon fiber chassis, which “uses Formula 1 technologies that haven’t been used in a road car since LaFerrari,” the brand says. As on the LaFerrari, the seats are built into the architecture and the pedals and steering wheel can be moved to achieve an ideal seating position. Prior to LaFerrari, each monoblock took an entire day to manufacture, which made the production time for the entire Limited Series very long. Ferrari will build just 599 units of the Daytona SP3, a hundred more units of the LaFerrari Coupé and 390 units more than the LaFerrari Aperta. Monza SP was limited on 499 pieces.
The most powerful V12 engine ever
Unlike the LaFerrari, the manufacturer gives the Daytona SP3 a naturally aspirated powertrain without the power. Ferrari heats the V12 power supply centrally in the chassis. The mass displacement is 6495 cc, the cylinder capacity of which is greater than the twelve-cylinder known from Maranello. It has a mass of 830 hp and a torque of 697 Nm. It’s the most powerful V12 the Italians have ever stuck in a road car. With traction on the rear wheels, the Daytona SP3 is in 2.85 seconds from a stop at 100 km/h. The sports car needs 7.4 seconds to reach 200 km / h. The maximum speed is more than 340 km / h.
Removable roof panel
By the way, the Ferrari Daytona SP3 is not a permanently open sports car. The sports car comes with a removable roof. Such roof construction is not new in Ferrari’s history. For example, the 328 GTS, 348 TS / GTS and F355 GTS had a removable roof section. LaFerrari also has a similar open roof construction.
Six for Holland
Ferrari will begin delivering Dayton SP3 early next year. The signed purchase contracts are now in the head office of the sports car manufacturer. Ferrari decides who can get one. About six of them will be supplied to the Dutch market.
