December 9, 2021

The #Ferrari #Daytona #SP3 is a limited production mid-engine sports car produced by #Italian #automobile manufacturer Ferrari, unveiled on 20th November 2021 for the 2022 model year.

The #DaytonaSP3 is the latest in the “Icona” series of high-performance #cars being produced by Ferrari.

499 examples will be built from 2022 and will be sold for $ 2,000,000 each. The Daytona SP3 is powered by a naturally aspirated 6.5 litre V12 and marks the first return of Ferrari to naturally aspirated engines for limited edition cars without hybrid electric systems since the Ferrari Enzo built-in 2002.

At the 1967 24 Hours of Daytona, Ferrari took the top three places in the first round of the International World #SportsCar #Championship.

The 330 P3/4, 330 P4 and 412 P that famously shot past the chequered flag side by side perfectly encapsulated the spirit of the sports prototypes of the 1960s, a decade now considered the golden era of closed wheel racing.

The #FerrariDaytonaSP3, the second car to join the limited edition Icona series, pays homage to the mid-rear-engined #FerrariV12 sports prototypes that earned the marque its unparalleled motorsport status.he design of the SP3 references to 1960s race cars extends beyond the mechanicals, with the #ferrariDaytonaSP3 having a characteristic aerodynamically optimized design that blends elements of Ferrari’s historic styling with cues from current models.

The low-set wraparound windscreen is a link to the P3/4, while the “double-crested” front wings nod to sports prototypes like the 512 S, 712 Can-Am and 312 P.

The design of the Daytona SP3 is based on the #Ferrari330 P4 #LeManswinning endurance #race car which won at Le Mans in 1966 and at 24 hours of Daytona in 1967.

The design is a modernization of the 330 P4, with the bodywork consisting of distinguished low driver’s seating position, raised font and rear wheel arches, and the #Targa top #design.

The design also takes inspiration from the rear air vents of the 330 P4 which are the signature that appears on the rear of the SP3.
