Ferrari Daytona SP3: How about a little history lesson before we discuss Ferrari’s most recent model in their “Icona” series of ultra-limited edition vehicles? The Prancing Horse of Italy finished one, two, and three on the podium at the 1967 24 Hours of Daytona. The 330 P3, 330 P4, 512 S, and its drivers were both lauded as they solidified their places in the annals of racing aristocracy. The Daytona SP3 pays homage to these very figures who gave the “Ferrari” brand the pzazz it has in the racing industry today, 54 or so years later, as it is introduced at the Mugello Circuit as part of the Ferrari Finali Mondialithe ’21. The all-electric Mercedes-AMG EQS 53 4Matic+ is all set to arrive in India.
The Ferrari Daytona SP3 has an oddly muscular appearance while being the brand’s most aerodynamically efficient vehicle ever constructed, whereas vintage racecars seemed sleek and quick. The 1960s racing elements, though, are very noticeable. Consider the low-set wraparound windscreen, which pays tribute to the P3/4. Additionally, sporting prototypes like the 512 S and the 312 P were where the “double-crested front wings” were first noticed.
The racer’s cockpit, on the other hand, features a seat that is more reclined than any Ferrari road vehicle. This enables the driver to sit more comfortably while decreasing drag on the car. Pay attention to the side mirrors as well; strangely, they are mounted on the wing of the front tyre rather than next to the door. The monocoque tub and all external panels are made of carbon fibre, which is another thing we notice. As a result, this Ferrari weighs a dry 1,485 kg and has an amazing power-to-weight ratio of 566 horsepower per tonne.The Rolls-Royce New Electric Vehicles Redefine Luxury in the Automobile Industry.

Ferrari Daytona SP3 is How Many Horsepower?
This all-Italian beast is powered by a powerful 6.5-litre 12-cylinder naturally aspirated gas guzzler with 840 Italian horsepower and 657 Nm of raw torque. So, to put it another way, the Ferrari Daytona SP3 is unquestionably the most powerful non-electric car to ever leave Maranello during the preceding 74 years. Furthermore, Ferrari asserts that when paired with a 7-speed automatic transmission, the V12 can provide a “torque curve that increases fast” rippin’ all the way up to the 9,500-rpm redline. It can go from zero to one hundred in 2.85 seconds and reach a top speed of 340 km/h. Hence, it ranks among the top five quickest Ferraris ever produced.
You must anticipate the Ferrari Daytona SP3 to have a plain, button-laden cabin after reading all these weighty racetrack-ready figures. Indeed, the racecar’s cockpit is rather a luxurious space. The UI kit and digital dashboard are exactly the same as those on the SF90 Stradale. Even more so, as is typical of Bugattis, the seats are merged into the body. Yet, the middle armrest panel and the way the cloth for both sides slips over it are reminiscent of 1960s sportscar interiors. Although it hasn’t been confirmed yet, we anticipate the car will have a detachable Targa.
In case you were wondering, getting a deal on this Ferrari will be quite difficult for first-time Ferrari purchasers. According to Ferrari, the vehicle will only be given to loyal customers and brand supporters. Owners of SP1 and SP2 will be given precedence in this case. There will only be 599 of them produced, and each one would set you back a whopping 2 million euros ($2.26 million) in Italy and Rs 16.8 crores if it ever made it to India.The Jaguar F-Type 75 is the company’s last petrol-powered speedster.
