FERRARI’S NEW ONE-OFF BR20 SUPERCAR IS A V12-POWERHOUSE

The Ferrari BR20 is essentially a GTC4Lusso with a comprehensive face lift. Thanks to a 6.3-liter V12 that screams with 680 horsepower, the donor shooting brake hits 60 mph in 3.4 seconds on the way to 208 mph.

The BR20 is likely somewhat faster due to the weight-saving removal of the rear seats, but it’s really an exercise in automobile design from Ferrari’s Special Projects division. 

A three-inch increase in overall length comes courtesy of a rear overhang that emphasizes the timeless fastback roofline, with hollowed arches running lengthwise from the cabin’s A-pillar to the spoiler. Those arches are an evolution of the now-iconic Flying Buttress element that Ferrari debuted in 2007 with the 599 GTB grand tourer.

Black fascia, a hefty bumper, and the lowered setting of custom-tipped tailpipes within the active diffuser give the back end a much racier aesthetic when compared to tamer GTC4Lusso. 

Flowing sills accenting air vents between the wheel arches lead to the front of the car, where a wide grille sports a unique carbon fiber element. The front grille is also slatted like the GTC4Lusso’s, but the headlights are lower and the daytime lamps are slimmer to give off a sleeker vibe. Everything rides on 20-inch two-tone wheels designed specifically for BR20.

The interior is trimmed in two shades of brown leather and carbon-fiber, per the anonymous client’s instructions. The seats are clad in dark brown “Heritage Testa di Moro” leather with silver cross-stitching, while oak trim and carbon fiber inserts highlight the rear, seat-less bench and luggage deck. 

Ferrari notes that the cabin volume runs uninterrupted from the windscreen to the luggage compartment, maximizing spaciousness.

No word on price, but anyone who’s asking Ferrari to heavily customize a $260,000 car probably isn’t worried about money.
