The steady stream of Ferrari ‘special projects’ continues. Say ciao to the V12-powered, open-topped SP3JC.
Ferrari has made much of its SP programme. Indeed, the SP1 and SP2 Monzas were arguably the stars of this year’s Frankfurt Motor Show. Now, even more bespoke than those very limited production cars, comes the one-off SP3JC.
It’s a commission for an individual collector whose brief was for Ferrari to ‘create a pure, uncompromising roadster using the chassis and running gear of the F12 TDF’.
Yup, this bespoke beast shares its engine with the carnivorous F12 TDF. It’s designed to hark back to the classic Ferrari open-top cruisers of the 50s and 60s – the original V12 roadsters. It took two years to create, from conception to construction.
The graphic design on the car is designed to reflect the buyer’s passion for pop art. It features a combination of an Azzurro Met (blue) and Giallo Media (yellow) livery over a base of Bianco Italia (white). The bonnet gives a view of the 780hp V12 even when it’s shut, with two glass window inserts through which the cylinder ‘redheads’ are visible.
It’s certainly not to all tastes and nor should it be, given this is about as personal as one-off commissions get. If the client is happy, it matters not how anyone else feels.
What we don’t know is how much it cost. You can bet on a sum spanning seven figures.
