The Ferrari SP51 Is An 812 One-Off With A Completely Open Top

Ferrari has experienced a series of incredible moments over the last few years – the Omologata, F12 TRS and SP48 Unica, just to name a few. Now the automaker is introducing another specialty vehicle to its growing lineup of one-of-a-kind products dubbed the Ferrari SP51.

Just like any other build before it, Ferrari created this roadster to the exact specifications of one of its wealthy customers. The SP51 is based on the 812 GTS, which means it’s a front-engined, V12-powered vehicle, likely with the same motor from the 812 GTS. The car uses a 6.5-liter V12 engine that produces 789 horsepower (580 kilowatts) and has a top speed of 211 miles per hour (340 kmh).

In terms of style, the SP51 is not as competitive as some of the other models. The headlights and taillights are unique, while the front grille is larger and wrapped in carbon fiber. There is a sharp blade element behind the wheel bore, also made of carbon fiber. And because it’s a roadster – meaning no retractable roof – the carbon fiber threshold with unique body details sits directly above the driver’s head, giving the SP51 its distinctive shape.

The Rosso Passionale paint on the exterior is also exclusive to the SP51, and the blue and white colors lining the center of the vehicle are inspired by the 1955 Ferrari 410 S.

The SP51 is making its way to longtime Ferrari customers and leading collectors in Taiwan. Naturally, Ferrari won’t tell us exactly how much it will cost, but it’s an easy multi-million dollar build.
