Ferrari's Special Projects unit has churned out plenty of one-of-a-kind beasts over the years, and its latest creation, the SP-8, is no different. Based on the venerable F8 Spider, this one-off uses the same twin-turbocharged 3.9-liter V8 as the "regular" roadster.


The prancing horse was too shy to reveal performance figures, though the F8 upon which the SP-8 is based delivers 710 hp and 568 lb-ft of torque, which enables a 0-60 launch in under three seconds. Regardless of whether or not Ferrari fiddled with the powertrain to pump more power out of the SP-8, these numbers are still plenty respectable.




The F8 influence is less clear on the outside, where the SP-8 receives completely new front and rear fascias. The differences include a more prominent front splitter, taillights like the ones found on the Ferrari Roma, exclusive five-spoke wheels that resemble the alloys on the legendary F40, and the complete lack of a roof. The latter means that the SP-8 had to undergo various tests and simulations to ensure that it meets the same level of poshness as the droptop F8 Spider.


The SP-8 also flaunts its bespoke nature with an eye-catching paint job. The entire front half of the supercar consists of an unpainted iridescent Blue Sandstone carbon fiber material with a glossy finish, while the rest of the vehicle features a matte shade of light gray Argento Micalizzato paint.




Ferrari refused to delve into the details on pricing, but considering that the F8 Spider starts at an eye-watering $330,000, the SP-8 likely carries a much heavier price tag. The one-off supercar will be showcased at Italy's Mugello Circuit from October 24 to October 29, before going on display at the Ferrari Museum in Maranello from November 16 until March 2024, which is when the SP-8 will be handed over to its well-heeled owner in Taiwan.
