This is a rare chance to see Ferrari’s latest one-off creation being put through its paces.
With all the buzz surrounding the sensational SF90 Stradale, you’d be forgiven for forgetting all about the one-off Ferrari P80/C that debuted just a couple of months ago. Revealed back in March, the P80/C is a one-off track special based on the Ferrari 488 GT3 race car. Recently, the P80/C was filmed tearing up the Monza race circuit, giving us our first look at Ferrari’s latest one-off creation in action. Judging from the camera car chasing it, the P80/C looks like it was being used for a video shoot. Whether it’s for an official Ferrari video or the owner’s own viewing pleasure remains to be seen.
According to the video description, the video was filmed at the end of the day, so it’s possible that the P80/C was being pushed harder when the cameras weren’t rolling. The driving is quite sedated, but there are a few moments when the driver puts their foot down. Nevertheless, it’s a rare treat to see the Ferrari P80/C being put through its paces. The P80/C was created for a client who wanted a unique track car, with a design inspired by some of Ferrari’s most legendary race cars such as the 330 P3/P4, Dino 206 S, and 250 LM.
The wraparound windshield is a clear nod to classic Ferrari race cars, while the flying buttresses converging towards the roof make the glasshouse resemble a racing driver’s helmet visor. Since the car isn’t road legal, there are no headlights. In their place are simple slits that resemble the air intakes in the grille of the 330 P3/P4. The rear is even more striking, with a rear spoiler incorporating two taillights that look like air vents and a gigantic diffuser.
No specifications have been released, but being based on the 488 GT3 means the P80/C is powered by a 3.9-liter twin-turbo V8. While the 488 GT3 was limited to 592 hp to meet category restrictions, the P80/C could have even more power than the 661-hp 488 GTB.
