Ferrari SP38 one-off unveiled

The Ferrari SP38 one-off special has been unveiled and ceremonially handed over to its new owner, prior to a few hot laps at Fiorano. Based on the 488 GTB, the design of the SP38's unique body is said to be inspired by the F40, especially the flip-up carbon-fibre engine cover. The SP38's rear wing is claimed to be a very subtle nod to the F40's much more overt offering.
