Meet The Ferrari P80/C: Ferrari’s Most Extreme One-Off Creation Yet

After showing off the new F8 Tributto at the Geneva Motor Show earlier this month, Ferrari has revealed the track-only P80/C as the company’s most extreme one-off creation yet. Based on the 488 GT3 race car, the Ferrari P80/C was created for a client who wanted a modern interpretation of some of the most famous Ferrari Sports Prototype racing cars from the 1960s, such as the 330 P3/P4, Dino 206 S, and 250 LM that inspired many of Ferrari’s most iconic road cars. As you can see, the results are simply stunning.

Work on the P80/C began in 2015, which is the longest development period of any Ferrari one-off yet. Every element of performance and aerodynamics was meticulously analyzed, which Ferrari says distinguishes the P80/C from previous one-off Prancing Horses.

Compared to the 488 GTB, the 488 GT3 has a 1.9-inch longer wheelbase that gave the team more creative freedom to create a unique design made entirely from carbon fiber. The P80/C adopts a classic layout with a centrally-positioned cockpit and an elongated rear end, giving the car a “powerfully aggressive character.”

Ferrari hasn’t released any technical specifications but being based on the 488 GT3 means the P80/C is powered by a 3.9-liter twin-turbo V8. The 488 GT3 was limited to 592 hp to meet category restrictions, so the P80/C should have at least 661 hp to match the road-going 488 GTB, or possibly even more power.
