Flavio Manzoni and the one-of-a-kind Ferrari P80/C

Flavio Manzoni at Goodwood Festival of Speed 2019

The Ferrari Senior Vice President of Design talks to CDN about one-offs and design inspirations

It’s a sweltering summer day in West Sussex, but Flavio Manzoni looks cool as a cucumber in his flax-coloured linen suit. At the Supercar Paddock, where hundreds of spectators swarm around some of the world’s rarest and fastest cars, Manzoni – whose team was recently named the Red Dot’s design team of the year – leads us inside the velvet ropes to a very special one-off the marque is showing at this year’s Goodwood Festival of Speed.

Painted in a bright hue dubbed Rosso Vero or “True Red,” the P80/C is a bespoke customer car built on a slightly stretched version of the 488 GT3 racecar. The all-carbon fibre, track-only creation recalls historic Ferrari racers of the 1960s such as the Dino 206 S and the 330 P3/4. But don’t call it retro.
