2022 Ferrari BR20 design


If you have a lot of money and want a Ferrari that nobody else has, you can pop along to Maranello and work with Ferrari's designers and engineers to come up with your own vision.


You need more than lots of money, though. You also need to be on Ferrari's list of people who already own multiple Ferraris, not somebody they've never seen before.


This service has proved quite popular. Y'see, Ferrari's V12 petrol engine is one of the finest ever produced, but it's not exactly very eco-friendly. With the rapidly approaching move to EVs, rich clients are clambering over themselves to sneak in a V12 before the deadline.


The Ferrari BR20 is exactly this. As always, the client isn't named, but they have opted to take a V12 Ferrari GTC4 Lusso platform (a car that went off sale last year), but design their own body to go on top.


Here the BR20 gets a new deeper grille, new bonnet air intakes and new headlights at the front, plus pronounced carbon fibre side vents that carry on along the sills and unique alloy wheels down its flanks.


At the back, there are new twin taillights, a more aggressive rear bumper and diffuser arrangement and flying buttress rear pillars. The quad exhaust pipes are unique to the BR20 too.



2022 Ferrari BR20 interior and infotainment


Inside the client has been busy too.


It's all very brown, with the seats covered in what Ferrari calls dark brown Heritage Testa di Moro leather, featuring an exclusive pattern at the front as well as silver cross-stitching.


The dash, doors and rear compartment are also trimmed in materials like oak and carbon fibre.


The BR20 looks to have the same infotainment system as the current GTC4 Lusso. That means a 10.3-inch widescreen touchscreen in the centre of the dash, plus a small display for the passenger too.


The driver also gets a couple of small screens, one on either side of a central analogue rev counter.

2022 Ferrari BR20 practicality and boot space


The GTC4 Lusso's rear seats have gone, making the BR20 a strict two-seater, now with more luggage space in the back.


Ferrari hasn't given a figure for the increased luggage space, but it looks to be significantly more than the GTC4 Lusso's already decent 450-litres.


Otherwise, you get the same door bins, glovebox and front armrest cubby as the GTC4 Lusso.


2022 Ferrari BR20 engine and gearbox


The BR20 is powered by the same massive 6.3-litre V12 that powered the GTC4 Lusso. It produces a whopping 690hp at 8000rpm and screams like a banshee while doing so.


Power is sent to all four wheels via a seven-speed dual-clutch automatic gearbox.


The GT4 Lusso could sprint to 62mph from standstill in just 3.4 seconds, plus carry on to 208 mph with enough room. It's not clear whether the BR20 will have the same performance figures, but it could well be lighter and quicker without the GTC4 Lusso's rear seats to lug about.


2022 Ferrari BR20 prices and on-sale date


Bad news we're afraid: the BR20 is a one-off, so you can't have one.


No price has been communicated, but we'd expect it to have seven figures, given the bespoke nature of this build
