It looks even better in action.
Here’s something you don’t see every day. In fact, it’s possible you may never see it again. This one-off Ferrari P80/C is really a 488 GT3 race car underneath its absolutely stunning body, and it was commissioned by a very special Ferrari customer who has thus far remained anonymous. 19Bozzy92 on YouTube happened to catch it turning laps recently at Monza, apparently as part of a video shoot since a Porsche camera car was chasing it. Yes, the irony here is not lost on us, either.
All things considered, the action is rather sedate but it’s still a joy to see this machine in action. The video description says this particular clip was shot towards the end of the day, and that the car might’ve been pushed a bit harder around the famous Italian circuit when cameras not mounted to a Porsche SUV were present. As it stands, we see a few moments where the Ferrari driver is exercising the skinny pedal, though we suspect this unique Prancing Horse is capable of so much more.

This gorgeous track-only supercar originated back in 2015 and was designed to pay homage to Ferrari race cars of the 1960s, specifically the Dino 206 S and legendary 330 P4. Power isn’t known, though beneath the custom bodywork is almost certainly a version of the twin-turbo 3.9-litre V8 found in the 488 GTE. As for that bodywork, its fabulously arched wheel flairs and unbroken wraparound glass give the Ferrari a very sensual, futuristic shape that still manages to carry a retro feel. The massive front splitter and rear wing make use of prolific air pressure to shove the P80 to the tarmac, while a large S-duct in the bonnet and louvres in the fender wings further manage airflow around the car.
We don’t know who the lucky owner is, nor do we know how much such a one-off build costs. We’re just happy to see the car in action at least once before it heads home.
