Based on the 488 GT3, it’s the most extreme 488 design to date

The Ferrari P80/C is a one-off supercar built by the company’s special projects unit. Designed by the same team that created the SP12 EPC, F12 TRS, J50, and the Monza SP1 and SP2 twins, the P80/C is based on the race-spec Ferrari 488 GT3. The supercar also draws cues from the iconic 330 P3/P4 the 1966 Dino 206S, as requested by its customer.

In development since 2015, the P80/C had the longest development time of any Ferrari one-off made to date. Ferrari says it spent almost four years on in-depth styling research and engineering development, with "meticulous analysis of performance parameters as well as scrupulous aerodynamic testing, all with a different approach than taken by Ferrari with its one-off cars in the past." Based on the way this car looks, I’m tempted to believe Ferrari isn’t just pulling PR tricks on us. Let’s have a closer look at the supercar we may never get to see in the metal anytime soon.

The fastest, best-looking Ferrari 488 yet

Like you, we love supercars. But, you know what we love even more? One-Off supercars like the 2019 Ferrari P80/C. It’s based on the race-spec Ferrari 488 GT3, but it was designed by the same folks that created the SP12 EPC, F12 TRS, J50, and the Monda ZP1 and SP2. Even better yet, this baby draws inspiration from none other than the 1966 Dino 206S. Looking at the P80/C’s crazy design, it’s not hard to tell that it was literally years in development – Ferrari started cooking this turkey back in 2015 – but we’re sure it was well worth it to the anonymous owner. The P90/C is powered by the same engine found under the hood of the 488 GT3, a 3.9-liter V-8 that delivers more than 700 horsepower, all of which is channeled through a dual-clutch transmission. The end result means that it’s probably more powerful than the 488 Pista, and it’s definitely faster with the sprint to 62 mph taking 2.7 seconds or less and to 124 mph taking just 7.5 seconds. Either way, we think this work of art deserves to be honored as our wallpaper of the day. So, we’ve posted our favorite below and, as usual, we’ve placed a gallery at the bottom for you to pick through if you’d like.

Do You Dream of Owning a One-Off Ferrari? It's Not As Easy to Obtain as You Might Think

Do You Dream of Owning a One-Off Ferrari? It’s Not As Easy to Obtain as You Might Think

It’s a long wait, but all that waiting will be worth it in the end

Owning a Ferrari is relatively easy provided that you have the money to spend to buy one. But owning a Ferrari? That’s a different story altogether. See, there are tiers when it comes to the kinds of Ferrari owners. Most people own one or two Ferraris and call it a day. They’re “regular” Ferrari owners if such a thing even exists. Then there’s the more exclusive club reserved for Ferrari’s top clients. These are the people who don’t just buy one or two Ferraris; they buy all of them, or at least most of them. These people are such regular customers that they get invited to an exclusive club that has access to the most exclusive of exclusive Ferraris: the one-offs.

Ferrari’s most important clients have opportunities to own one-off Ferraris that they themselves commission Ferrari to build for them. But just because they have that privilege doesn’t mean that Ferrari will build them a one-off model on a whim. The growing trend for one-off Ferraris comes in response to the increasing demand from clients to get their hands on a Ferrari that no other person in the world has. In turn, that demand has created a waitlist that can take up to four or five years to accommodate. We can argue whether a four- or five-year wait is too long, but it seems that no one is making a big fuss about it given how long the waitlist has become.

And considering the latest one-off that Ferrari just released — the Ferrari P80/C — there’s a case to be made that all that waiting will be worth it once the one-off model comes to life.

Ferrari's Special Projects Unit Has Created Some Sick One-Off Models

Ferrari’s Special Projects Unit Has Created Some Sick One-Off Models

In honor of the Ferrari Prototipo’s arrival, check out some of Maranello’s recent and most tantalizing one-off creations

The Ferrari P80/C is Ferrari’s latest one-off creation. Details are just starting to come in at this point, but we do know that it’s going to be awesome. Such a description is par for the course when it comes to Ferrari Special Projects, Ferrari’s offshoot arm that develops and creates these one-off masterpieces. The Special Projects program started in 2007, and since then, we’ve seen some of the wildest and punchiest one-off supercars to wear a Prancing Horse badge. Over the course of 12 years, a handful of these one-off creations were unveiled to the public, but given Ferrari’s affluent clientele, only the automaker knows how many it has actually made. For all we know, there could be dozens of other one-offs tucked away in garages all over the world, having never met the prying eyes of a camera lens. But there have been some one-off Ferraris that have made public debuts. Check them out below.
