The all-new bodywork, in a newly conceived three-layer metallic red, marks a radical departure from the
language aesthetic of the donor car. The twin-turbo, twin-intercooler set-up of the award-winning 488 GTB
inspired the team to reference the mighty F40 as an icon from which to instruct the projectís general direction.
Compared to the 488 chassis, the visual mass of SP38 appears concentrated over the rear wheels as the
wedge design sharply stretches towards the front. In plan view, the strongly tapered nose expands towards
muscular wheelarches, giving the car potency and agility. Specific inset headlights were designed to be as
thin as possible, with the mandatory DRL (daytime running lights) units relocated to add character and
functionality to a slim bumper lip reminiscent of the 308 GTB. On the side, the defining air scoop of the 488
GTB is completely concealed where the sheet metal folds in on itself from the low beltline on the door and
into the rear wheelarch and three-quarter light. The effect is dramatic, as it reinforces the importance of the
rear volume while, at the same time, maintaining the air flow to the intercoolers at the base of the side
The dynamic styling continues over the engine cover, which sheds its rear glass and is treated as a flip-up
assembly in carbon fibre with shutlines slashing the flanks in a gesture directly reminiscent of the F40ís.
Three transversal slats slash across the engine cover to evacuate engine heat, and the smooth integration of
a substantial rear spoiler is a hint at the famous rear wing of the F40. The trailing edge of the spoiler links
seamlessly with the wing and with the aerodynamic diffuser at the bottom, to create a suggestive frame
surrounding the tail volume.
A full Tailor Made cabin trim puts the finished touches on this truly special Ferrari, which will be on public
display for the first time at the upcoming Concorso díEleganza Villa díEste on Saturday 26th May 2018.
