The latest Ferrari one-off project, the SP3JC, has been officially consigned to its owner. Designed by the Ferrari Styling Centre, the SP3JC was commissioned by a Ferrari client and collector whose brief set out to create a pure, uncompromising roadster using the chassis and running gear of the F12tdf. The sole one-off car to be commissioned on this limited-series special, the SP3JC harkens back to Ferrari's V12-engined spiders of the 1950s and '60s. It's taken over two years to build this one-off SP3JC and the owner too was closely involved with this process.
The SP3JC features a very muscular stance with dynamic sculpturing on the flanks designed to emphasise the front-engine layout, a distinctive air intake outline at the front, and a dramatic rear fascia with horizontal slashes contributing to a wider stance. What brings it all together is the combination of the Azzurro Met and Giallo Modena livery over the main Bianco Italia colour scheme.
The Ferrari SP3JC gets specific detailing such as split glass inserts on the bonnet to show off the 780cv V12 engine, a flying bridge between the fairings of the integral carbon-fibre roll hoops and a brushed aluminium external fuel filler cap. The seats are trimmed in blue leather with a white insert. The blue leather extends to the lower dashboard and the colour is picked up in the contrasting stitching to the rest of the interior trim.
The powertrain on this one is the same as the one on the F12tdf. The SP3JC gets a 6.3-litre V12 which churns out 770 bhp and develops a peak torque of 770 Nm. There's a seven-speed dual-clutch gearbox which power the wheels and on the F12tdf it helps it go from 0-100 kmph in 2.9 seconds. Now, open-tops are usually a bit slower but we don't expect the SP3JC to be very slow and it might still hold a respectable time of 3.2 or 3.3 seconds to reach the 100 kmph mark.
