Ferrari’s One-Off F12, the SP America, Spotted Undisguised

Over the last month, Ferrari’s one-off division (Ferrari Special Projects), may have been busy working on their latest project, but they’ve managed to keep this hidden from view. Until now that is - the adjacent image offers us the vehicle, which is wearing the SP America moniker, without any form of disguise.

Yes, we have seen the car before, but the way in which it was covered made it feel like someone on the Prancing Horse’s payroll had arranged for a semi-covered shot to “leak” onto the web. Well, like we said, the current picture fully reveals the car.

The man who captured the image and sent it to car spotter Marchettino explained the SP America was being taken to its owner.

Still, the details are sketchy on this one. The vehicle is believed to be based on the Ferrari F12. Nonetheless, instead of the fixed roof signaled by the “Berlinetta” part of the designation, the SP America is expected to treat its occupants with a Targa-like roof.

As far as the styling part goes, we’ve only seen the front end so far. What the revised design basically says is “help, I need more air!” Since the widened air intake surface is present, perhaps the V12 engine was taken past its standard 730 hp.

Regardless of that, the styling is the main aspect here. We’re not going to throw opinions, but we can’t help notice how divisions such as Ferrari Special Projects keep coming up with designs that split opinions over the last few years. Want another example? The McLaren X-1.
