Ferrari has revealed the latest creation to roar its way out of the brand's 'one-off' division – and although it's a typically beautiful smorgasbord of metal and carbon fibre, it looks rather closer to a Lamborghini than a Ferrari. At least from some angles.

Called the SP38, this one-off model is based on a 488 GTB, meaning it'll have a twin-turbo V8 with 661bhp and enough torque to make your tummy go a bit funny when you push the accelerator.

It's undoubtedly gorgeous, but does it look familiar?

Ferrari states the overall inspiration for the car comes from the F40, and that one of their main aims was to create the slimmest possible headlights that would still be legal on the road. What they don't state is that they look rather, well, Huracan-ish. The front bumper is said to mimic that of a 308 GTB, and has a bold black splitter that blends into a lairy pair of side skirts.

The SP38's bum is rather more Sant'Agata Bolognese* than Maranello too, with a louvred rear section to help remove hot air from the engine bay, and two fat exhausts mounted high up in the bumper – like a 488 Pista with buttock implants. The rear spoiler is another hark back to the F40.

There's no word on what the interior looks like, other than it's a fully one-off cabin presumably packed with Alcantara and some sumptuous leather.

Has Ferrari been a bit too brave? What do you think?

Should the SP38 stay as a one-off, or would you happily see more of these on the road? Let us know in the comments below!

*That's where the Lamborghini factory is, not where you can swim in lakes of Ragu. If you know of such a place, let us know.
