Any new Ferrari unveiled is usually prick-tease enough, given the price tag, and limited production quantities. Most onlookers admire from a distance, appreciate the finely crafted lines and absurd performance stats (not to mention the sound of one of those engines–any one of them). But to release a one-off, produced uniquely for a private bidder, and tarted around the Concorso d’Eleganza Villa d’Este for one day only–that just seems cruel.
The Ferrari SP 38 Deborah follows in the tradition of everything Ferrari has done for the past decade and is, for lack of a better term, bloody beautiful. Based on a 488 GTB, the SP 38 is part of Ferrari’s exclusive (and expensive) “One-Off” customer program. The program is somewhat clandestine in nature, so exactly who owns the car, how much it cost, what it’s interior looks like and, indeed, it’s technical specifics remain (for now) a mystery.
Assuming it’s boasts the same guts as a 488 GTB, it would be powered by a 3.9-litre twin-turbo V8, and get from 0-100km/h in three seconds flat.
Design-wise, we’re particularly fond of the “gills” in the carbon-fibre engine cover, which bring to mind a muted version of the F40, and the thin headlights, which emulate the 308 GTB.
