Presented at the Mugello racetrack in Scarperia and San Piero last autumn, the Cavallino Rampante custom-built car immediately proved to be an icon. Not so much because it is part of the homonymous segment of the Ferrari range which since 2018 includes the Monza SP1 and SP2, but because of its qualities, both aesthetic and engineering, which make the Ferrari Daytona SP3 a model of refinement and sportiness. Beyond the 840 cavalli power, 697 Nm of torque and a maximum speed of 9500 rpm children of a naturally aspirated V12 engine in the central-rear position, other elements also stand out that make it unique and iconic.

For example, the frame made of composite materials that is inspired by the technologies of Formula 1, the aerodynamic and stylistic studies which make it particularly efficient thanks also to the use of exclusive passive solutions, of components such as the extraction chimneys on the bottom. All of this makes the Daytona SP3 the most aerodynamically efficient Ferrari devoid of active appendages. The numbers released by Cavallino give a concrete idea of ​​the performance of which it is capable: 0-100 km / h in 2.85 seconds and, given that it amazes even more the 0-200 km / h in just 7.4 seconds.

The choice, derived from the world of Sport Prototypes, to equip it with the Targa-type bodywork (with removable hard top) also played a leading role.
