Ferrari SP51 lifts lid on 812

The SP51 is the latest in Ferrari’s Special Projects series of one-offs. Designed for a Taiwan-based client by Flavio Manzoni and his Centro Stile team, the SP51 is a V12 spider based on the 812 GTS platform – but it has no roof at all. The styling is described as “powerful and harmonious, thanks to seamlessly muscular, undulating surfaces”. Bare carbonfibre is used extensively, for instance carbon bonnet trim framing twin air vents and many cabin trim items.


Unique aspects include headlights and carbon-trimmed wheels, while the rear taillights are inset below the spoiler. Flying buttresses incorporate carbonfibre scoops, between which is a transverse carbonfibre wing concealing a rollover hoop. Rosso Passionale triplelayer paintwork was developed specifically for this car, enhanced by blue-and-white stripes inspired by a Ferrari 410 S from 1955.

The cabin features red Alcantara trim with stripes that extend through the centre tunnel and fascia. The door panels, lower dash and sides of the seats have blue Kvadrat inserts with white cross-stitching, while glossy carbonfibre trim is used throughout the interior.
