Earlier this week, Ferrari presented the third model in its Icona series: the Daytona SP3. It harks back to the racing prototypes of the 1960s, just as the SP1 and SP2 were previously reminiscent of the barchetta-cars of the 50’s. With a production run of only 599 copies, the SP3 was already sold out before its launch, but don’t worry: on the Ferrari website you can now try out what your Daytona would have looked like if you had been there. And if you were willing to pay 2 million euros for it, that is.
So we went in the direction of a configurator with a virtual money bag and put together our ideal Daytona SP3. After a few tries, we discovered a new side of ourselves and our SP3 turned out more alternative than expected. We went for the Giallo Modena body color because it reminded us a bit of the F50, we also chose the visible carbon structure on the roof and the bumpers and screwed the white rims on our Daytona because they just looked surprisingly bold. And now the undersigned is going to account for the lost working hours at HR.
If you dream a little too much while configuring your Daytona SP3, there is still hope: there are rumors that they are breeding four or five Icona models at Ferrari. Knowing that the SP1 and 2 hark back to the 50’s and this SP3 is targeting the 60’s, that could mean we can expect similar retro models for the 70’s, 80’s, 90’s and maybe even 00’s. We can’t wait for our F50 revival to become a reality.
