OPINION | The Ferrari BR20 is a one-off fastback based on the GTC4Lusso

What happens when you take the most practical Ferrari and make it less practical while also making it more beautiful and totally exclusive?

In this case, the answer is the Ferrari BR20, a one-of-a-kind creation based on the GTC4Lusso platform.

The BR20 is the latest car to join Ferrari's exclusive group of bespoke cars designed to meet the specific needs and desires of one very wealthy owner.

Although its unique fastback design is inspired by Ferrari coupes from the 1950s and 1960s, the Italian sportscar manufacturer believes it does so without any hint of nostalgia.

"Instead, it pulls off the difficult feat of combining timeless elegance with muscular sportiness, effortlessly incorporating styling themes typical of some of Ferrari's most iconic 12-cylinders, including the 410 SA and 500 Superfast," Ferrari said.

It was also revealed that the GTC4Lusso's two rear seats had been removed in order to add more dynamism to the new creation's sleek fastback silhouette. The BR20 is 7.6cm longer than the original, thanks to a rear overhang treatment that creates a silhouette that emphasizes its proportions.


Furthermore, the new cabin design solution gives the impression of two arches running lengthwise from the A-pillar to the rear spoiler. The rear volume of the arch has been hollowed out to create an aerodynamic channel, with the air outlet hidden beneath the spoiler by the black rear fascia.


Because Ferrari makes no mention of the engine, we'll assume the BR20 is powered by the same 6262cc V12 that powers the GTC4Lusso. This normally aspirated mill produces 507kW at 8000rpm and 697Nm at 5750rpm, allowing for a 3.4-second 0-100km/h time and a top speed of 335km/h.

To the client's specifications, the cabin is trimmed in two shades of brown leather and carbon-fibre, and the seats are upholstered in dark brown Heritage Testa di Moro leather with silver cross-stitching.


"Designed for a longstanding client who was deeply involved in every step of its creation," Ferrari said, "the Ferrari BR20 represents a true interpretation of the traditional coachbuilder's art, successfully transforming an existing model in a masterful and unique way taking inspiration from and paying homage to the company's core values of innovation and passion."
