Ferrari’s Special Projects (SP) division has been pretty busy recently, what with the introduction of the 458 MM Speciale, J50 and more recently, the SP 275 rw competizione. Patent images from the European Union Intellectual Property Office (EUIPO) reveal what could possibly another unique Ferrari, this time based on the flagship LaFerrari.

Filed on August 5, 2016, the images show a car that is certainly much more aggressive-looking than LaFerrari. The front features thin LED strips for headlights, along with a revised bumper and hood design, the former of which comes with substantially larger intakes.

Additional aero features can also be seen near the front wheel arches, where the air is routed through “hoops” on either sides of the car, before proceeding to the rear intakes. Like the front, the unknown Ferrari’s rear is a stark contrast from LaFerrari, with a slim horizontal light strip. The exhausts have also been reprofiled to be more angular here, while the active diffusers are retained.

The profile is where things start to get really busy, with plenty of angular links to form the aero “hoop” near the A-pillars as well as between the rear fenders and roof. Even with all the exterior changes, the unmistakable LaFerrari silhouette remain prominent, and the car certainly appears to be an evolution of Ferrari’s F150 concept from 2013.

Of course, it isn’t uncommon for carmakers to publish official patents for future cars, even if they won’t be made. This one even comes with roadworthy side mirrors instead of cameras as you’d expect on a concept. We’ll have to wait and see what exactly the Ferrari SP team has in store for us. Perhaps a Geneva Motor Show reveal is in store for this mysterious Ferrari?
