It's almost cruel to configure a car that's already sold out.
It took no time at all for the Ferrari Daytona SP3, the latest addition to the Italian marque's Icona series, to sell out. Yes, each one of the 599 supercars, valued at $2.25 million each, has been accounted for. But Ferrari knows that most of us would at least like to pretend that the prospect of parking a Daytona SP3 in our grimy garages could be a reality one day. That's why an online configurator for the Daytona SP3 that you can no longer buy is currently live - and in 3D! For the next few minutes, allow us to indulge ourselves as we build the SP3 of our dreams and find out how deep the scope for customization runs.
Not all computers will support the 3D configurator but a more basic 2D version is live as well. It all starts with that absolutely breathtaking exterior. By default, the configurator has the SP3 finished in Rosso Magma, which is of course a shade of red. By clicking on flashing dots on the screen, you can manipulate the program to open the doors or switch on the lights. Other color options include Giallo Modena (yellow), Blu Pozzi (blue), Argento Nurburgring Metallic, and Nero Daytona. From the historical palette, you can choose from the likes of Rosso Dino, Blu Swaters, and Verde British Racing, the latter offered on other Ferraris like the F8 Tributo too. The SP3's body has many intricate design details so we went with the lighter Argento Nurburgring Metallic to highlight these.
After that, you can choose from one of several liveries. We went for the Nero Daytona double stripe which contrasts perfectly with the Argento Nurburgring paint, but there are a plethora of other choices. There are surprisingly few wheel options with only one design and a choice of three colors, so we went for the 20-inch forged diamond rims with Gold brake calipers. Finally, we replaced the yellow center caps with darker carbon ones. A matte finish for the exterior carbon elements is available but we retained the glossy finish.
Next, we headed into the cabin. To contrast with the moody, sinister exterior, we went for a brighter color scheme here with Sabbia leather with Charcoal stitching. Bordeaux, Rosso Ferrari, and Tortora are just a few of the other choices, or you can finish the seats in Alcantara.
Seat belts are offered in a variety of vivid shades, but we kept ours black. It's also possible to individually finish the upper dashboard in its own color or to replace the upper or lower cockpit with Alcantara.
Finally, there are a few options like Apple CarPlay and a 20-inch spare wheel kit, but nothing that significantly alters the enjoyment of the car. Instead, the Daytona SP3 is all about how creative you can get with colors and materials. Naturally, none of these color or upholstery choices have any price tag attached to them, but that doesn't matter to the people who could afford one of these. Now, if only we can send our specifications to Ferrari and wait for delivery.
