The Ferrari SP3JC is special one-off project that was commissioned by an enthusiastic and passionate Ferrari client and collector. The brief was simple. To build a pure, uncompromising Ferrari roadster using the chassis and running gear of the F12tdf.
The SP3JC is a nod to the classic Ferrari V12-engined spiders built in the 1950s and 60’s when open-air motoring was the norm. There is no mistaking the individual styling statement this one-off car makes as a result of over two years of close involvement working with the client to build this rather exceptional and unique car.
You will notice from the photographs the muscular stance of the Ferrari SP3JC which flows to form the sculptured flanks, helping to accentuate the front engine layout of the car with its very distinctive air intake outline at the front.
The somewhat unusual graphics are down to the client’s passion for Pop Art which are coupled with the Azzurro Met and Giallo Modena livery over the main Bianco Italia colour scheme.
Fortunately, there is still a strong sporting theme which is reinforced by the split glass inserts on the Ferrari’s bonnet, showing off the immensely powerful 780cv V12 engine. You will also notice the flying bridge between the fairings of the integral carbon-fibre roll hoops and a beautifully crafted brushed aluminium external fuel filler cap.
Whilst the seats themselves are trimmed in blue leather with a white insert, the blue leather also extends to the lower dashboard and coloured with contrasting stitching on the rest of the interior trim.
Hopefully some of us may be lucky enough to get a glimpse of this one-off Ferrari SP3JC driving on the road on the odd occasion. Let’s hope so at any rate, as it would be a shame if stayed locked away in a garage and barely used by its new owner.
