Ferrari has unveiled the SF48 Unica, the most recent addition to its portfolio of customer-commissioned one-off fashions. Based mostly on the F8 Tributo, the coupe was created by the Ferrari Styling Middle for an nameless shopper who participated in each step of the design course of.
Almost each a part of the F8 Tributo’s exterior has been redesigned. Up entrance, the SF48 Unica options new-look lights, a reshaped bumper with honeycomb-like inserts, and twin vents. Blacked-out a-pillars create the phantasm of a wrap-around windshield. Even the door skins are particular to the mannequin, and designers relocated an intercooler to maneuver the engine’s air intakes down. Out again, skinny rectangular lights changed the F8’s quad spherical items and the rear bumper is new as effectively. One of the crucial placing styling cues is the shortage of a rear window.
Making a one-off mannequin requires an amazing period of time and sources, particularly as a result of lots of the modifications alter the coupe’s aerodynamic profile. The SF48’s rear overhang is a little bit longer than the F8’s, and the additional inches enhance downforce on the again wheels. Procedural-parametric modeling strategies and 3D prototyping helped the Prancing Horse’s designers make the one-of-a-kind automobile a actuality.
Ferrari notes that the SF48’s cabin seems lots just like the F8’s, although it stopped in need of releasing images. The 2 vehicles aren’t precisely an identical inside, nevertheless: the client who commissioned the Unica requested black laser-perforated Alcantara upholstery draped over a layer of material that matches the physique’s coloration, for instance. Matte carbon fiber trim and Grigio Canna di Fucile accents have been specified as effectively.
We’re guessing that no important mechanical modifications have been made, which means that energy comes from a 3.9-liter, twin-turbocharged V8 rated at 710 horsepower and 568 pound-feet of torque. Mid-mounted, it spins the rear wheels through a seven-speed computerized transmission.
As is often the case, Ferrari hasn’t revealed the identification of the SF48 Unica’s proprietor or how a lot the automobile price to construct.
