Ferrari has been known for some beastly track-only supercars, and automotive designer Sabino Leerentveld wants to continue that trend, but with some F1 and LeMans thrown in.

Can this become a reality sooner than later? Of course, as during the 1950s and 1960s, clients often personalized their vehicles as they came straight from the factory. Ferrari’s Special Projects program, launched in the late 2000s, lets customers design their own bespoke bodied one-offs based on modern Ferrari road cars. All of the Engineering as well as design is completed by Ferrari, though sometimes external design houses, like Pininfarina or Fioravanti, are contracted, and the vehicles receive full homologation to be street legal.
