A British company called RML has decided to make a handful of reimagined 1959 Ferrari 250 GT SWBs which will hopefully make their debut in October.

If you think you've heard of RML before, it's probably because you have. They are the same company responsible for making an insane Nissan Juke R a few years ago and a road legal Aston Martin Vulcan.

However, this new creation, dubbed the RML Short Wheelbase, will be an equally special project for the company. RML aims to produce just 30 examples and each will feature a carbon fibre body heavily influenced by the original 250 GT SWB.

According to Top Gear, this reimagined Ferrari will be powered by a 5.5L naturally aspirated V12 from the Ferrari 550 Maranello which produces 478hp and 419 lb-ft through the rear wheels. This example will be ever so slightly longer, wider, and heavier than the original 250 GT SWB and will weigh in at 1,420 kg. This means it will be able to hit 60 mph in just 4.1 seconds.

Pricing has not yet been announced, but keep an eye out as the RML Group is expected to drop some more details soon.
