I honestly wish I was the wealthy Ferrari collector who orders the meticulously-crafted, memorable and amazingly witty Ferrari P80/C. If he did this purely to please an inner satisfaction, then, boy, that man got taste!
The Herculean task that fell in the hands of Flavio Manzoni of Ferrari Styling Centre, was to transform a Sports Prototype into one of the most iconic automobiles on the globe right now. It took four laborious years to achieve this and a combined effort of several engineering teams under the stable.
This tasking vehicle delivers 660bhp 3.9-litre through the twin turbo V8 engine. The whole styling is a sight to behold. It has no visible headlights but instead features some very small slits that are almost nonexistent.
It has a stunning wedge shape when viewed from behind and the side view further emphasizes its overall strangeness. The wings have been given some dominating prominence especially underscored by the wide air openings.
This being a vehicle that takes a cue from predecessors the 330 P3/P, a lot of track racing elements are attached. It’s based on the Ferrari 488 GT3 whose place in Ferrari’s lineage is phenomenal.
That Ferrari made such a peculiar car never to drive on public roads demonstrates an inner drive to do the unthinkable. You don’t need to look too hard to see know that the client must have been elatedly satisfied.
