The Ferrari P80/C is Yet Another Prancing Horse Can’t Own

One of Ferrari’s many billionaire clients has paid for this one-off sports prototype concept, the P80/C. Of course, Ferrari didn’t let any details of that client go. All they mentioned was that the client requested “a modern sports prototype inspired by iconic models from Ferrari’s history: the 330 P3/P4 on the one hand and the 1966 Dino 206 S on the other.”

Ferrari have been working on the P80/C since 2015, making it one of the longest one-off projects the company has ever undertaken. Most cars of the sort are built off a donor vehicle from the Ferrari stable, with stylistic differences to set it apart. Not with the P80/C, though. Because the P80/C is performance-focused, they used the 488 GT3 chassis as its basis.

The Ferrari P80/C is made entirely from carbon-fibre, only the parts with strictly technical functions have been left bare, while the main car body has been painted a bright Rosso Vero.

The interior is very much the same as that of the donor car with a roll cage integrated into the bodywork. The side sections of the dashboard have been redesigned from the version seen on the 488 GT3, as have the seat upholstery and door panels – the latter are now carbon-fibre shells and no have no impact on the car’s weight.
