Ferrari F40-Inspired SP38 Looks Stunning As A Spider


But it’s probably never going to happen.

Last week, Ferrari lifted the covers off the drop-dead gorgeous SP38, the latest one-off creation from Ferrari’s Special Projects Division for a very wealthy client. It’s based on the 488 GTB, but you wouldn’t know that looking at the completely bespoke exterior. The radical styling has little in common with the 488 GTB, and there are even a few design flourishes inspired by the iconic F40 including three transversal slats adorning the engine cover and a similar rear spoiler. But what if Ferrari made a SP38 Spider?

Thanks to Hungarian render artist X-Tomi Design, we now know what a roofless version of Ferrari’s latest one-off supercar would look like. Sadly, it loses the F40-inspired engine cover as a result, but it’s still stunning to behold. As gorgeous as this fictional Ferrari SP38 Spider looks, it’s very unlikely to ever become a reality. After all, the client must have paid Ferrari a small fortune to build the bespoke SP38. Creating the same car for someone else would destroy its exclusivity. Unless of course the same client commissions a matching Spider to go with the coupe, which has been done before.

Recently for example, McLaren Special Operations built a bespoke coupe and matching convertible based on the 650S for one very rich customer. If the roofless SP38 ever did become a reality, it would be powered by the coupe’s twin-turbocharged V8 that produces 661 hp and provides a 0-62 mph sprint time of just three seconds. Launched in 2007, Ferrari’s Special Projects Division has created some truly special custom prancing horses over the years commissioned by some seriously wealthy customers such as the F12-based Ferrari SP America.
