Ferrari Daytona SP3 Revealed
Ferrari’s newest Icona series model is the Daytona SP3. Unveiled at the 2021 Finali Mondiali gathering at Italy’s Mugello Circuit, the Ferrari Daytona SP3 is designed as a tribute to the iconic sports prototype race cars that won the 1967 24 Hours of Daytona. Specifically, that was the year that the Ferrari 330P3/4, 330P4, and 412P prototypes finished 1-2-3 in the legendary race, and the Daytona SP3 pays obvious tribute by way of similar contours and a mid-engine layout. But unlike those prototypes of old, the new SP3 is equipped with an incredible V12 engine that will make it one of the fastest Prancing Horses available.
How Many Ferrari Daytona SP3 Models Will Be Made?
Ferrari plans to build 599 colorful Ferrari Daytona SP3 models, which is roughly in line with the production numbers of the Monza SP1 and SP2. Ferrari itself issued a press release indicating that the model is “aimed solely at Ferrari’s top clients and collectors, proud ambassadors for the Prancing Horse marque.” This would make it a scarce and highly sought-after collectible, indeed.
What is the Ferrari Daytona SP3’s Engine?
The car’s performance is going to be thoroughly modern, courtesy of cutting-edge aerodynamic engineering and a stunning mid-mounted V12 engine that will give the SP3 the highest output of any of Ferrari’s road cars to date. Here are the key powertrain specs:
- Engine: 6.5L V12
- Horsepower: 829 hp @ 9,250 rpm
- Torque: 514 lb-ft @ 7,250 rpm
- Transmission: 7-speed dual-clutch
- Acceleration: 2.85 seconds
- Top Speed: 211 mph
- Drivetrain: Rear-wheel drive
Combined with extensive use of carbon fiber on the car’s exterior, the Daytona SP3 is built to tear up the track.
