After launching the SF90 XX, Ferrari continued to introduce the world’s unique KC23 supercar, made for the racetrack by Ferrari’s Special Projects personalization department.
The Ferrari KC23 you see is not a concept car, of course it is not a commercial production car either. This is the latest racetrack car introduced by Ferrari’s Special Projects personalization department.
The innovations of the Ferrari KC23 are both aesthetic and performance
The race-focused, refined and modern supercar was born from the careful planning of the Ferrari Centro Stile headed by Flavio Manzoni and a special customer among the brand’s most passionate customers in during the past 3 years.
Through passion and imagination, KC23 was conceived.
The KC23’s futuristic bespoke bodywork is based on racing architecture – the 488 GT3 Evo. To date, the KC23 is the second Special Projects car based on a racing car, the previous being the P80/C model.
The heart and soul of the KC23 is inherited from the 2020 488 GT3 Evo – the most successful racing car in Maranello’s 76-year history, with more than 530 victories and 119 championships; At the same time, it is a great foundation for building the ultimate personal Ferrari.
Given the extreme nature of the twin-turbo V8 engine, chassis and suspension setup, the KC23 is designed for track rather than road use.
When standing still, aerodynamic details seem to be hidden. Instead, there are smooth, uniform lines with absolute aesthetics, like the KC20 is carved from a single block of metal.
All lines on the KC23 have been changed compared to the 488 GT3 Evo, including the glass surface and light clusters. The KC23 also has vertically opening butterfly doors like the LaFerrari.
The front headlights flash like the 499P just won the historic 24h Le Mans race. The giant rear spoiler and active ventilation holes on the sides, which can be folded when not needed, make the KC23 look its best when parked.
The rear spoiler can also be removed at the end of a track session. At this time, the main highlight is the methacrylate blade-shaped taillights inspired by single-seat Italian cars – Ferrari Vision Gran Turismo.
There will be 2 wheel options including an 18-inch version with slick tires and the remaining tire set has 2 sizes: 21 inches front and 22 inches rear. The pair of cameras replace traditional rearview mirrors. This detail not only improves visibility but also optimizes aerodynamics.
Ferrari has taken care of the KC23’s appearance with a Gold Mercury paint job that can change under sunlight. The KC23 will please Ferrari fans everywhere with its dark racing interior. simple.
The KC23’s interior is geared towards racing, so it has many similarities with the original 488 GT3 Evo. The steering wheel has buttons and lever controls that are true to an enduro racing car. Custom-made Alcantara upholstered sports seats enhance luxury. The cabin is protected by a reinforced frame system.
Ferrari suggests the KC23 offers “a tantalizing glimpse into the future of supercars” although it doesn’t specify what details or equipment will appear on Ferrari’s new supercar.
In the press release, Ferrari did not mention the technical specifications of the KC23, but based on the 488 GT3 Evo base, it can be speculated that the car’s power comes from a twin-turbo 3.9l V8 engine.
This car is forced to comply with GT3 regulations, so the capacity is limited to 600 PS (591 horsepower) for the 488 GT3 Evo, but on the regular 488 GTB it can reach 670 PS (660 horsepower).
Sometimes, Ferrari’s unique Special Projects cars are never shown to the public. However, in this case, the owner wishes to share his collaboration with the world.
The pinnacle of Ferrari KC23 personalization will make its public debut at the Goodwood Festival of Speed and then be displayed at the Ferrari Museum in Maranello from August 1 to October 2. It may inspire many Ferrari owners and enthusiasts to think about what their dream Ferrari would look like.
For one visionary client, that dream became a reality. Of course, the amount of money to satisfy this dream can reach tens of millions of dollars.
