Back in 1967, at the 24 Hours of Daytona, three Ferrari cars side by side finished the endurance race and the rest is history. The Italian carmaker has finally decided to pay a heartfelt tribute to those legendary racecars and therefore, has decided to introduce the all-new Ferrari Daytona SP3. It is obviously the third car for the Icona range after the Monza SP1 and SP2 and hence is very important from the brand’s point of view. Want to learn more about it? Check out all the details related to the Daytona SP3 down below.
- Ferrari has introduced the all-new Daytona SP3 globally.
- It becomes the third Icona car from the Italian carmaker.
- Comes with a potent 6496cc naturally aspirated V12 unit.
Ferrari Daytona SP3
Using a modified platform, the all-new Daytona SP3 looks special from all four ends. The front profile of the supercar comes with a wide bumper with large air intakes, sleek LED headlights with DRLs, a smarty finished grille with the prancing horse logo on it and an aerodynamic bonnet hood. On the side, feels out of the world without the roof. A set of large sportier alloy wheels further enhance the overall stance. Talking about the rear profile, it sports high mounted twin exhausts which are incorporated just above the rear diffuser.
The cabin of the new Daytona SP3 is a typical Ferrari affair. With a minimalistic approach, it comes with a fully digital driver’s display, multi-functional steering wheel, a thin centre console with a premium material used on the dashboard. The seats on this special edition supercar are obviously bucket units. Interestingly, Ferrari has introduced four-point seat belts on both of them to ensure safety.
Making it capable in terms of performance are obviously the electronic aids that are being offered. An electronic differential with Side Slip Control 6.1 is there to improve cornering. Also, Ferrari claims that the carmaker has disturbed the overall weight in the 44:56 ratio to evenly spread it.
Engine & Performance
Powering this absolute beast is a 6496cc naturally aspirated V12 engine that propels a massive 840HP @ 9250 RPM and 697Nm @ 7250 RPM. Transmission duties for this new supercar are managed by a 7-speed DCT gearbox that works in conjunction with the engine to push it hard and fast. As claimed by the carmaker, the all-new Ferrari Daytona SP3 can do a 0-100kmph sprint in just 2.85 seconds, 0-200kmph in 7.4 seconds along with a top speed rated at 340kmph.
It’s too expensive with a price tag of €2 million and as we know, that even this supercar belongs to the Icona range, the carmaker will surely give their first preference to the older Icona owners. Ferrari has confirmed that only 599 units of the same will be manufactured which ultimately makes this one a big deal.
