The SP51 shares its mechanicals with the 812 GTS but gets a bespoke design.
Ferrari has unveiled the SP51 supercar, a one-off creation that’s based on the 812 GTS. The Italian marque has developed its 51st special project car for a Taiwan-based client and features unique exterior and interior styling elements.
- SP51 supercar gets a unique colour scheme
- Powered by the 800hp V12 from the 812 GTS
Ferrari SP51: design details
Created by the Ferrari styling centre, some of the SP51’s new exterior details include the redesigned headlights, diamond-cut wheels and the unique ‘Rosso Passionale’ colour scheme. It also sports a prominent blue and white livery as tribute to the 1955 Ferrari 410 S race car which covers the entire length of the supercar.
Unlike the 812 GTS, however, the SP51 does not get a folding hard-top and remains roofless. In order to make the SP51 as aerodynamic as possible, engineers have added vents at the front and rear to help increase downforce.
Other key details also include the carbon fibre bodywork and the transverse-mounted carbon wing that acts as a bridge between the two flying buttresses. On the inside, the SP51 is identical to the 812 GTS apart from the prominent red Alcantara trim.
Ferrari SP51: powertrain
As the SP51 shares its underpinnings with the 812 GTS, it’s also powered by the 6.5-litre, naturally aspirated V12 engine that puts out 800hp and 718Nm. Ferrari has not revealed any technical specifications for the SP51, but it’s expected that it can accelerate from 0-100kph in 3.0 seconds until it reaches a top speed of 340kph.
