In a grand revelation, Ferrari has introduced the all-new 499P Modificata, a hypercar that leaves no stone unturned in its pursuit of performance. This formidable machine boasts even more power than the standard race car model that secured victory at this year’s LeMans competition.
Ferrari has taken the wraps off the 499P Modificata, an exquisite derivative of the 499P that played a pivotal role in the Italian automaker’s triumph at LeMans this year. Diverging from the competitive domain, the Ferrari 499P Modificata is exempt from the stringent regulations governing the LeMans event.
This opulent creation has undergone meticulous refinements, tailored for the discerning and affluent connoisseurs of high-performance automobiles. While the precise production figures remain undisclosed, it is anticipated that this extraordinary vehicle will be made available in limited quantities, exclusively to a select clientele. Furthermore, the 499P Modificata takes its place within the brand’s novel Sport Prototipi Clienti program, affording patrons the unique opportunity to acquire bespoke racing machines.
Propelled by a 3.0-liter twin-turbocharged V6 engine, the 499P Modificata boasts an electric motor integrated into its front axle, akin to its racing counterpart. Nevertheless, Ferrari has meticulously tuned this mechanical masterpiece to elevate its performance for non-competitive use. Consequently, the electric motor on the front axle has undergone substantial enhancements.
It is worth noting that the World Endurance Championship regulations stipulate that electric assistance may only be engaged at speeds exceeding 190km/h. In stark contrast to the LeMans race car version, the novel 499P Modificata can activate its electric augmentation right from a standstill, enabling it to operate at lower velocities, not confined to speeds marginally over 190km/h.
Furthermore, Ferrari has introduced the “Push to Pass” feature, allowing the unleashing of an additional 161bhp of power for a brief duration of 7.0 seconds, temporarily amplifying the powertrain’s peak output from the conventional 697bhp to a staggering 858bhp.
The non-competitive iteration of the race car retains various components from the standard version, including a carbon monocoque chassis, an 800-volt battery pack, inspired by Formula 1 technology, a seven-speed sequential gearbox, and a brake-by-wire system. Additionally, the car’s aerodynamic elements and exterior aesthetics mirror the standard 499P with remarkable precision.
