Ferrari has dropped a teaser video of the latest one-off produced by its Special Projects division.
The bespoke creation has been dubbed Prototipo and in the video, Ferrari claims that it is the “most extreme Special Project” model it has ever built. Considering some of the memorable Special Project vehicles we’ve seen over the years, that’s saying a lot.
From what the teaser video shows, it’s obvious that the Ferrari Prototipo will feature bold and aggressive bodywork significantly different than any current Ferrari production models. For example, there’s a towering carbon fiber rear wing. Ferrari has made an effort in the past couple of decades to not affix towering wings to most of its customer cars, not even the FXX K, but the Prototipo doesn’t follow suit. Footage of the finished vehicle also shows prominent air louvers on the front wheel arches.
Ferrari then shows the Prototipo undergoing recent testing at its Fiorano Circuit. Interior footage of the car indicates that the Prototipo will be track-focused and comes complete with a Formula 1-inspired steering wheel as well as a dashboard consisting of a small digital gauge cluster and a plethora of switches.
As for what will power the Prototipo, that remains a mystery. However, it very much sounds like a naturally-aspirated V12 engine. According to some, the Prototipo might actually be based around the almighty LaFerrari hybrid hypercar.
The Ferrari Prototipo will be unveiled in Hong Kong on March 25, 2019 at 3:00 pm CET. If it is indeed the most extreme Ferrari Ferrari Project model to date, it will probably also be the most expensive.
