Bespoke Ferrari SP51

812 GTS-based one-off

Ferrari's bespoke division has created a new limited model based on the 812 GTS, dubbed the SP51, built for a Taiwan based client. The 789bhp roadster gets its name for being the company's 51st special project car.

The bespoke design features include,  Rosso Passionale paint, specially designed headlights and diamond-cut wheels.

The new limited model shares all of its foundations with the 812 GTS, that involves its front-mounted 6.5-litre V12. Although performance details have yet to be released, expect figures similar to the 812’s sub-3.0sec 0-62mph time and 211mph top speed.

On the outside, the SP51 has been given its own specific details while still echoing the 812 silhouette, it also benefits from a roofless design, although the one-off doesn’t get a folding hard-top like the 812 GTS its based on.

The body is predominantly carbon-fibre, created by the Ferrari Styling Centre, its most noticeable feature is the blue-and-white stripe that runs the full length of the body, reminiscent of the 458 Speciale and a nod to the 1955 Ferrari 410 S. Inside, you would hardly be able to tell it apart from the 812 GTS, with red Alcantara bathed all round.

Engineers were challenged by the absence of a roof. They were tasked with making it as aerodynamic as possible, with vents at the front and rear helping to guide air and hunker down the car for increased downforce.

No price has been revealed yet but as is with special limited runs like this you may not receive one either, the SP51 joins other one-offs like the F8-based SP48 Unica and windscreen-less SP2 Monza.
