The peculiar-looking supercar was built by a former Italian racing driver and is looking for a new home.
Here’s a strange supercar you’ve probably never heard of. It’s called the E.C. OnlyOne P8, and, as the name implies, it’s a one-off supercar. It was built by former Italian racing driver Enea Casoni and is based on a Ferrari F430. You won’t recognize it as a Ferrari, however, because the entire carbon-alumium body is custom made to resemble racecars from the 1970s.
Casoni raced it at this year’s Gumball 3000 but is now selling the car. It’s a very peculiar-looking supercar, featuring gullwing doors and unusual proportions, particularly the extended rear. At just 39.6 inches high, it sits incredibly low to the ground, though the front can be raised by 2.4 inches at the touch of a button.
Under the hood, the E.C. OnlyOne P8 uses the F430’s naturally aspirated 4.3-liter V8 engine tuned to deliver 600 horsepower, which is 110 more horses than the F430. That’s a lot of power considering the car only weighs 2,646 lbs, making it around 330 pounds lighter than the donor car. In another nod to vintage racing machines, the V8 is mated to an old-school six-speed manual shifter.
Inside, there’s a mix of Alcantara and leather upholstery, and carbon fiber and aluminum trim. The interior is decidedly driver-focused, but there’s still a handful of comfort features including air conditioning, a reversing camera, and parking sensors. You’ll probably need the latter, as there doesn't appear to be much rear visibility.
The E.C. OnlyOne P8 is certainly an acquired taste, but we’re sure someone who likes rare one-off cars will want to give it a new home. You’ll need deep pockets though because it has an eye-popping price tag of $2.85 million on JamesEdition. You could almost buy a used Ferrari LaFerrari for that kind of money, but if you truly want to stand out, there’s no other car like this in the world.
