Ferrari will present a one-time copy of the iconic F40 model

The Italian automaker plans to unveil a one-off of the iconic F40. One of the brand’s clients, who wished to remain unnamed, wanted to receive a completely new copy of the model.

The Ferrari F40 is undoubtedly one of the legendary models of the Italian automaker. Any Ferrari fan will be able to distinguish the F40 from just one look at the signature air intake on its rear fender. And, of course, the body of the car should be red.

With that said, the one-off modern version of the F40 no longer seems like an odd whim of one of Ferrari’s customers.

According to our insiders, the one-off Ferrari will be unveiled in a few days.

The new car will follow the company’s contemporary styling, which was inspired by the exterior of the original F40. It is known that the one-off novelty will receive the SP42 nameplate, which means an exclusive model of a non-serial nature. It is reported that the car will be powered by one of Ferrari’s twin-turbo V8 engines, most likely the 3.9-liter engine used in the F8 Tributo.

The rest of the details about the unique supercar from Ferrari are not yet available. But if all of the above were true, we could expect a car that has a “softer take on the iconic F40’s rather boxy design.” We believe that the novelty will definitely receive the legendary rear wing.

Ferrari is no stranger to making very rare cars that are sporadic requests from customers. The SP38 was introduced two years ago and was commissioned by “one of Ferrari’s most loyal customers.” A few months later, the exclusive SP3JC, an open roof roadster with a V12 engine under the hood, was revealed. The car was based on the F12tdf model. Then in 2019, the Ferrari P80 / C debuted, inspired by the 330 P3 / P4 and Dino 206 S race cars.

Not so long ago, AutoTimesNews wrote that a Ferrari supercar with a hybrid V6 engine was noticed on tests. Such a conclusion about the motor can be made based on its sound in the published video.
