The 3rd party ultimate tribute for '80s Ferraris

Might be it's still fresh in your memory, a row of works from Ferrari's bespoke divisions such as SP1 and SP2 speedsters and P80/C, but it's not. This supercar figure began its life journey as a Ferrari 488 GTB which was later changed by a third party into a tribute to legendary previous flagships from these prancing horses logoed manufacturer such as 288 GTO and F40 that followed it.

This beautiful supercar was created by an automotive design company called 7X Design and was named the Ferrari 7X Design GTO Vision.

This car is more than just a retro-flavored modern prancing horse as it also takes cues from some recent models. For example, the dual winglets at the back at a glance remind us of the FXX K track beast, while the rear bumper and diffuser look like those of the F12 Berlinetta.

From the looks, almost all of the original 488 GTB exterior panels have now been replaced with new bodywork made entirely of carbon fiber to keep the weight down low. Then, there're the glorioust F40-like engine cover up to the 288 GTO-inspired double headlights, thus perfecting the appearance of this GTO Vision as a result of a blend of styles from the past Ferrari's models.

It’s a wonderful combination of classic and current models, and it goes even further than that by riding on new wheels created specifically for this car. There're many 'floating' elements neatly integrated into the bodywork to show this was more than just simply strapping on custom bumpers, since the GTO Vision has what looks like a tremendous amount of new details.
There are also quite interesting parts in this car, namely the slanted rear slats just behind the rear wheels like the ones on the 288 GTO, while the fat rear tires harken back to the 80s era of supercars. Another interesting detail is the Ferrari badge on the front, which serves a double purpose as it actually unlatches the trunk at the push of the prancing horse.
The GTO Vision is more than just a one-off project as 7X Design mentions on their official website that accepting  orders from those of You who own a GTB 488 or its successor, the F8 Tributo. It costs You around €1.8 million (around $2.02 million), but the first five customers can get special bodywork for €1.35 million (around $1.52 million). Depending on what you want, it may cost more and You have to wait between six to nine months to take delivery of the reworked Ferrari. *** [EKA | FROM VARIOUS SOURCES | 7X DESIGN | MOTOR1 | ZERO2TURBO]
