It’s beautiful, it’s rocky and so exclusive that even multi-millionaires can’t be sure they’ll get a copy.
The car is called the Ferrari Daytona SP3 and is primarily in homage to the rather astonishing triple victory at the legendary Daytona circuit in 1967.
A time when Ferrari managed to humiliate Ford by taking all the positions on what many considered Ford’s flagships.
The Ferrari Daytona SP3 is inspired by previous iconic cars such as the 512 S, 712 Can-Am and 312 P. It has also won numerous awards for its unique design.
Of course, you’ll find the award-winning 6.5-liter V12 under the hood. Performance is a solid 840 horsepower and a top speed of 9,500 rpm.
Acceleration from 0 to 100 km / h should disappear in 2.8 seconds at lightning speed, and from 0 to 200 km / h it takes only 7.4 seconds. The maximum speed is set at 340 km / h. Also solid.
The price of the beauty, by a good margin, exceeds two million dollars, or just over 20 million Norwegian kroner – this is before VAT and taxes …
But then there is a slightly cheaper and smaller alternative.
Danish Lego made a 1:8 scale model of the same car.

It hardly happens in the blink of an eye
When (or rather if…) you assemble all 3778 blocks (!) in the correct order and in the right place, the result should be 59 cm long, 14 cm high and 25 cm wide Ferrari SP3. It can hardly be built in the blink of an eye.
But when you’re done, you’ll get a car with an 8-speed sequential gearbox, a V12 engine with moving pistons and silver-plated rims in a replica of the original. The recommended age limit to start this is 18 years old.
We are very fortunate to be able to work with Ferrari to help fans realize their dreams.
This is what Nils P. Christiansen, a spokesperson for the Lego Group, said in a press release.
Because Lego teamed up with Italian Ferrari to produce this Lego car. The Italians also seem to be satisfied with the end result.
It was a pleasure to collaborate with the Lego Group on this model, says Flavio Manzoni, chief designer at Ferrari.
Now Ferrari and Lego fans can build the car, brick by brick, before they even have the chance to display the amazing model in their homes. Manzoni adds in conclusion.
If you fancy your own Ferrari and you’re ready to get started on the project, it’s now up for sale. Either in stores or online. The price is about 4000 NOK. It’s a little cheaper than the original, but it’s also a little smaller.
