Designed to pay homage to Ferrari’s mid-rear-engine V12s that earned the marque its unparalleled motorsport status, the Daytona SP3 encapsulates the spirit of the prototypes from the 1960’s golden era of closed wheel racing. Becoming the second car to join Ferrari’s ‘Icona’ series after the Monza series, the V12 two-seater car is a futuristic interpretation of the classic sport prototipo and is fuelled by the memories of the spectacular 1-2-3 result for Ferrari in the 24 Hours of Daytona race during the 1967 World Sports Car Championship.
At the heart of the Daytona SP3 lies its F140HC, the most powerful internal combustion engine that Ferrari has ever built. This mid-rear-mounted naturally aspirated V12 is capable of delivering 840 cv and adopts the architecture of the F140HB sported in the 812 Competizione, inheriting its upgrades. With the ability reaching 0-62 mph (0-100 km/h) in 2.85 seconds and 0-124 mph (0-200 km/h) in just 7.4 seconds, alongside a maximum speed of 211 (340 km/h), it is evident that this car been designed with the essence of racing spirit.
This essence has also been deeply incorporated into the car architecture, with the intent of creating harmony between the driver and the car. With the same aim to reduce weight as in the LaFerrari, the seats have been integrated into the chassis, optimising driving position and promoted the feeling of a single-seater car. The chassis and body shell are made entirely from the composite material, technology that was deriving from Formula 1, creating excellent weight and structural rigidity. Pirelli helped develop the car’s new tyres, the new P Zero Corsa, to optimise them for both dry and wet performance ensuring stability in low grip situations.
The Icona series is design-driven, celebrating Ferrari’s history by reinterpreting the styling of the marque’s most iconic cars to radically modern effect. The Daytona SP3 is inspired by many of the legendary Ferrari cars from golden era of closed-wheel motorsport, but particularly by the memorably choreographed 330 P3/4, 330 P4 and 412 P that took the chequered flag side by side in 1967. The Daytona SP3’s overall balance is underscored by monolithic volumes that are a powerful articulation of the long-appreciated skills of Italian coachbuilding at its finest. The fluidity of its masses melds effortlessly with sharper surfaces, to produce the sense of effortless aesthetic balance that has long been a signature of Maranello’s design history.
This fine 1:4 scale model of the Ferrari Daytona SP3 Engine and Gearbox has been handcrafted and finished in our workshops using CAD directly from Ferrari, allowing us to perfectly recreate every detail at scale. Each individual material in the engine has been carefully and artfully reproduced at scale using special finishes as befits the Ferrari Daytona SP3 design. This accurate replication of the actual engine has relied heavily on Amalgam’s close relationship with the Ferrari design and engineering teams. This 1:4 replica shows every visible detail of the engine right down to the numerous parts labels and barcodes. Finally, the prototype model has undergone detailed scrutiny to ensure complete accuracy of representation.
