The Ferrari Daytona SP3, a stunning addition to the Icona series, epitomizes the brand’s commitment to timeless design and cutting-edge performance. Unveiled as part of Ferrari’s exclusive Icona series, the SP3 pays homage to the iconic 1969 365 GTB/4 Daytona, blending classic aesthetics with modern engineering. The SP3 boasts a naturally aspirated V12 engine, delivering an exhilarating 828 horsepower that propels the car from 0 to 60 mph in just 2.9 seconds. Its limited production of only 599 units enhances its exclusivity, appealing to automotive enthusiasts and collectors alike. The hand-crafted interior showcases the epitome of luxury, featuring bespoke materials and meticulous attention to detail. As a true testament to Ferrari’s commitment to craftsmanship, the Daytona SP3 stands as an extraordinary fusion of heritage and innovation, embodying the spirit of the legendary Italian automaker.
When it comes to the model, BBR once again delivers an outstanding piece that stands out in the realm of Ferrari replicas. Their focus lies in crafting scale replicas that closely mirror the originals, aligning with my preference as a collector of Ferrari models. While it doesn’t boast the opening features seen in the more affordable Bburago counterparts, BBR excels in the finer details, setting a high standard in comparison to other models.
A prime example is evident in the Daytona SP3, featuring a substantial front opening with a fully perforated piece, a stark contrast to the solid plastic employed by Bburago, coupled with some artifice to imitate mesh. Furthermore, BBR goes the extra mile by incorporating authentic-looking carbon fibre, elevating the model’s authenticity. The meticulous attention to textures and intricate details within the interior enhances the overall charm. Admittedly, such craftsmanship comes at a premium, with Bburago priced around $100 and BBR commanding a higher cost, exceeding $500. The choice then becomes a matter of where one wishes to invest.
In terms of personal preference, I initially opted for the Metallic Red Magma exterior. However, in hindsight, I found it to be too dark for my taste, initiating its sale. It is likely to be replaced by a more traditional Ferrari Red in the future. Enjoy the pics!
