Ultra rare new Ferrari 499P Modificata

Want to own a piece of Ferrari history? Now you can with the Ferrari 499P Modificata.

Ferrari took their first overall win at Le Mans 2023 for over 50 years with the 499P.

And, with that glory fresh in fans’ minds, that winning car has just spawned a “Modificata”.

The Ferrari 499P Modificata, which is Italian for ‘modified’, was revealed at Mugello Circuit.

That was during Ferrari’s 2023 celebration of its customer racing programme, Finali Mondiali.

And yes – you can actually buy it.

Long story short, the Ferrari 499P Modificata is essentially a copy of the Le Mans winner.It was developed by the prancing horse brand’s new Sport Prototipi Clienti programme.

The exterior is identical to its Le Mans counterpart.

The interior also twins the racer with a single-seat and race steering wheel. 

But don’t expect this copy to be a bargain – even if you can use crypto as payment in the US.

Cheap, the Ferrari 499P Modificata certainly is not.

The “strictly limited-series track car” clocks in at a cool $5.6 million.

What’s more, unfortunately you’re not going to get the thrill of a race either.

Ferrari has been explicit that the rare prototype is exclusively for non-competitive track use.

To really put the beauty through its paces “very select clientele” will have to hire a track privately or attend one of Ferrari’s special events.

Included in the package of buying the racer, Ferrari will transport the car to each of the circuits within the Sport Prototipi Clienti programme.

The owner will also receive track-side assistance and maintenance. 

Being free of the Fédération Internationale de l’Automobile‘s (FIA) regulations, it’s had upgrades to its chassis, interior and powertrain.

The original 499P race car was limited to an overall output of 671bhp.

However, the Modificata boosts this to 846bhp.

But the three-litre, twin-turbocharged V6 engine derived from the Ferrari 296 GTB supercar remains the same.

Power comes via a seven-speed sequential transmission. 

Shock absorbers, springs and anti-roll bars have been fettled to offer more a predictable drive for “gentleman drivers”.

FIA regulations dictate that the 499P can’t activate its front-axle electric motor at speeds under 118mph.

However the Ferrari 499P Modificata’s allow for all-wheel drive at all times.
