New V12-powered model based on GTC4 Lusso features dynamic styling inspired by Ferraris of 1950s and 1960s

The new Ferrari BR20 is a V12-powered two-seat coupé based on the GTC4 Lusso that is the latest addition to the firm’s ultra-exclusive One-Off series.

The styling takes inspiration from 1950s and 1960s Ferrari coupés, with cues that nod to the 410 Superamerica and 500 Superfast.

It was designed as the newest coachbuilt one-off project for one of the Italian firm’s “longstanding clients”. 

The BR20 has been built on the platform of the GTC4 Lusso grand tourer that recently went out of production but has been extensively reworked. Most notably, it's longer than the original to allow for the addition of a bold rear overhang, including an aerodynamic air channel, rear spoiler and exhausts built into the lower diffuser.

At the front, it features a reworked, widened front grille including unique horizontal slats and an upper carbonfibre element that links to other recent One-Off models. 

The headlights have also been modified with slimmer daytime running lights and the 20in diamond-finish wheels are unique.

The two rear seats from the GTC4 Lusso have been removed to turn the car into a two-seater, which also allows it to sport a sleeker, fastback-style roof.

The removal of the seats also allows for a major redesign of the interior, which features extensive use of leather trim and carbonfibre. The seats feature an exclusive stitching pattern, while oak trim covers the rear bench and luggage deck.

No performance details have been disclosed, but the car retains the 6.2-litre V12 and four-wheel-drive system of the GTC4 Lusso. In that model, the engine was tuned for 680bhp.

As with other luxury manufacturers, one-off and limited-run coachbuild projects are an increasingly lucrative revenue stream for Ferrari. Maranello once reported that it had a five-year waiting list for such projects. 

Ferrari said the BR20 client was “deeply involved” in the creation of the car, although it has revealed no details of their identity. It also hasn't given a value for the car.

Ferrari designed the beautiful Roma.But they seem to have gone back to an earlier era again. It's no different than any other Ferrari, with a glaring intake and carbon that will only please a 12 year old.If I wanted a Ferrari inspired by the models of the 50's and 60's, I would choose the 612 Scaglietti instead of these 812 SuperFast clones.It is not a one-off model, but more simple and elegant. It is not a Ferrari for 12-year-olds designed to please kids who only know their cars from mobile games.

I actually like the exterior - but those seats and oak panelling inside!  I can almost smell the stale cigar smoke and spilled  brandy from the owner while he was submitting expense claims for overpriced contracts to his government mates......

Fussy and overdone. Not pretty.
