The new unique model of the Cavallino, based on the GTC4Lusso, was designed by Flavio Manzoni’s team following the criteria chosen by the individual customer who commissioned it.
The best of current mechanics combined with stylistic elements typical of the 50s and 60s: these are the criteria, chosen by the individual customer who commissioned it, which gave life to the Ferrari BR20. The new one-off from Maranello pays homage to history without giving in too much to nostalgia, thanks to the Fastback setting of the two-door powered by the V12, whose power and price remain jealously guarded by the Special Projects Department. As well as the anonymity of the sole owner.
Ferrari BR20: characteristics
The new two-seater V12 coupé was developed on the basis of the GTC4Lusso, paying homage to some of the most iconic twelve-cylinder engines in Ferrari history, including the 410 SA and the 500 Superfast, in terms of philosophy and stylistic approach. Compared to the GTC4Lusso, the two rear seats have been removed to obtain a more dynamic line, emphasized by the approximately seven centimeters longer. The two-seater configuration of the passenger compartment was one of the main elements of the project, as it allowed the designers directed by Flavio Manzoni to imagine unprecedented proportions. A concrete example is the treatment of the rear overhang, aimed at creating a silhouette capable of emphasizing the new proportions of the car to the maximum. The solution adopted for the shape of the passenger compartment creates an effect similar to that of a pair of arches running lengthways, from the front pillars to the rear spoiler. The recesses on the back are functional to the creation of an aerodynamic channel whose outlet is hidden by the black rear band placed under the spoiler. It is a modern reinterpretation of the so-called flying buttresses that bind the BR20 both to the GT tradition of the Prancing Horse and to sports cars such as the 599 GTB Fiorano. Lower down, the round twin exhausts are also specific to the BR20. The carbon fiber details that dot the car underline the dynamic qualities and the level of performance that this 4 × 4 is able to offer.
Ferrari BR20: interior
The solution adopted for the shape of the passenger compartment creates an effect similar to that of a pair of arches running lengthways, from the front pillars to the rear spoiler. The interiors faithfully reproduce the layout of the GTC4Lusso, while offering greater airiness. The setting is embellished with Heritage Dark Brown leather upholstery with contrasting silver stitching, as well as oak and carbon inserts.
Ferrari BR20: engine
As per the tradition of the one-offs of the Cavallino, no official data on the mechanics of the Ferrari BR20 were disclosed. The engine mounted on the four-seater that came off the lists last year is the 6,262 cc naturally aspirated V12 with 689 hp and 697 Nm of torque at 5,750 rpm. The engine is combined with permanent all-wheel drive and seven-speed sequential gearbox. Some updates aimed at increasing the values and consequently the performance are not to be excluded: 0-100 km / h in 3.5 seconds and a maximum speed of 335 km / h.
