This one-off Ferrari celebrates open-air driving joy.
The Ferrari 812 GTS is a car that both captures and evolves the driving pleasure of a front-engined, rear-wheel drive sports car with an open top. The formula is one that has excited drivers around the world for countless decades, and it remains one of the most desirable kinds of cars to own today, and in the form of an immensely powerful Ferrari, it’s a true winner. One special Ferrari client, however, found just about the only way to make the 812 GTS even better, and that’s to make a specially-created car based on the 812 GTS as a glorious one-off.
Designed at the Ferrari Styling Centre, the new Ferrari SP51 is completely roofless, which evokes vintage racing roadster charm while also being engineered with careful attention to structural rigidity and aerodynamic efficiency despite the lack of a roof. The extensive use of exposed carbon fiber modernizes the car’s classic ethos. Rosso Passionale is the color that adorns the car, while a blue and white racing stripe echoes the 1955 Ferrari 410 S, and the interior does as well. With bright red throughout the interior, the Ferrari spirit runs deep in this special one-off car, built for a Taiwanese collector who is one of Ferrari’s leading clients, and even in an extensive Ferrari collection, this new, one off Ferrari SP51 is undoubtedly a crown jewel.
