Ferrari’s first and only P80/C is touted as “Hero Car” that was inspired by two greats from the automaker’s past: the 330 P3/P4 and the Dino 206 S. Commissioned in 2015, this one-off supercar is based on the 488 GT3 not just for its performance, but also the longer wheelbase, which enabled designers greater freedom, especially from the front, with the P80/C sporting a sharp, wedge-like design, complete with a mean front splitter. “At the client’s request, the car was designed with a dual soul: a racing set-up, which includes quite a showy carbon-fiber wing and 18-inch single-nut wheels, and an exhibition package complete with 21-inch wheels but devoid of aerodynamic appendages, to highlight the purity of its forms,” said Ferrari.

Other features include bespoke headlights inspired by the air intake housings in the 330 P3/P4’s grille, and the visor-effect cockpit – a tribute to the Dino and the 250 LM Berlinettas. In the back, you’ll find air vent-style taillights and a rear fascia that leaves the running gear entirely visible.
“The P80/C is made entirely from carbon fiber but only the parts with strictly technical functions have been left bare — the body has been painted in a bright Rosso Vero. As for the interior, it’s very much the same as the 488 GT3 with a roll cage integrated into the bodywork. However, the side sections of the dashboard have been redesigned and the seat upholstery and carbon-fiber door panels have been personalized as well,” reports Car Scoops.
