Ferrari Unveil Futuristic One-Off KC23 Supercar

1 年前
Ferrari unveiled a futuristic one-off supercar, the Ferrari KC23. The unique vehicle is the latest in the marque’s Special Projects programme, it was commissioned by one of Ferrari’s leading collectors. Designed by the Ferrari Styling Centre led by Flavio Manzoni, the KC23 is based on the 488 GT3 Evo 2020 platform from which it inherits its layout, chassis, and engine.The base for the project was very special indeed: the 488 GT3 has been racing since 2016 and to date, it has triumphed in the world’s most prestigious endurance races, racking up over 530 victories and winning more than 119 championships, making it the most successful racing Ferrari in history. Given the extreme nature of its engine, chassis and suspension set-up, the KC23 was designed exclusively for non-competitive track use. Timeless lines provide a tantalising glimpse of the future of supercars. The result is a car that looks like it has been sculpted from a single block of metal. Sharp angles are reduced to an absolute minimum, creating a futuristic design while butterfly doors open vertically on single front hinges. The new arrival took over three years to develop and now joins the most exclusive group in the Prancing Horse’s range: bespoke cars crafted to the specifications of a client. It made its first public appearance between 13 and 16 July 2023 at the Goodwood Festival of Speed and from 1 August to 2 October, it will be on display at the Ferrari Museum in Maranello.
