The prancing horse’s brand has its own department dedicated to creating unique one off models for its most notable clients. Ferrari’s Special Project’s ledger is full, and the brand just unveiled the department’s latest creation, the Ferrari BR20, a model based on the GTC4Lusso that was ordered by a collector, as the latter was recently removed from the brand’s catalogue.
The client has asked the Maranello firm to inject a few elements that echo certain past models, especially those from the 1950s and 1960s. The BR20 draws most of its inspiration from the brand’s V12 models like the 410 SA and the 500 Superfas. With its extended profile, the car is 7.6 centimeters longer than the GTC4Lusso, especially because of the numerous modifications that were brought to the back cantilever, to confer a certain singularity to the car.
The stern and the roofline aren’t the only elements to have been redesigned; Ferrari has also brought a set of modifications to the front with unreleased made to measure optics, mounted lower to give the bonnet a more impressive effect. The large grill is equipped with new and revised horizontal strips, whereas the 20 inch rims were made exclusively for this model and will not be found on any other Ferrari.
The interior also got treated to a slight makeover; two shades of brown were applied and an omnipresence of carbon fiber was decided in order to further the exclusive aspect of the car. The seats are covered with Heritage Testa di Moro dark brown leather, ornate with silver stitching. As you can see, the backseats of the GTC4Lusso have disappeared, only to be replaced by an elegant and magnificently crafted oak luggage rack which hides the loading bay.
As it is often custom with special projects, Ferrari remains evasive regarding performance; this particular model is based on the GTC4Lusso and not the GTC4Lusso T, which means that it’s equipped with an atmospheric 6.2 liter V12 developing a whopping 680 horsepower, enough to allow it to hit the 100 km/h mark in about 3.4 seconds, and a top speed of 225 km/h.
Of course, it would be indecent to mention the price of such a model. All we know is that the client in question must have spent several million for this unique model, carefully prepared by Ferrari’s Maranello employees.
