Ferrari SP3JC: a V12 blast from the past

► Another one-off Ferrari
► Based on the F12tdf
► Windows in the bonnet!

Following the Monza SP1 and SP2, Ferrari has revealed a brand new one-off, called the SP3JC. Featuring a hefty front-mounted V12, the new roadster uses the running gear from the Ferrari F12tdf, and is designed to hark back to the brand’s 12-cylinder spyders of the 50s and 60s. This whole resto-mod thing seems to be quite popular now, doesn’t it?

Featuring a similar front-end to the F12tdf on which its based, the SP3JC includes windows on the bonnet to show off its naturally-aspirated powerplant – and at the rear, horizontal slashes give the car a more distinct personality.

However, the most striking detail has to be the somewhat divisive colour scheme Ferrari has plastered over its new creation. It turns out the person who commissioned the car was particularly into pop-art; and their new motor has paid the price. However, Ferrari describes the paint job as an ‘Azzurro Met and Giallo Modena livery over the main Bianco Italia colour scheme.’

The Ferrari styling centre has added other design flourishes around the car; a flying bridge sits between the carbonfibre roll hoops, while a brushed aluminum fuel filler cap emphasises those 60s roadster stylings.

Inside, you’ll find seats trimmed in blue leather with a white insert, and the theme continues to the lower dashboard and contrasting stitching.

There’s no performance figures or a price for the SP3JC right now, but if the F12tdf’s anything to go by, expect around 770bhp, and 0-124mph in something like 7.9 seconds.
