Is this the Ferrari F12 Spider?

Ladies and gentlemen drivers, what we can tell you for sure is that the adjacent image shows us a special incarnation of the F12, one that Ferrari probably didn’t intend us to see, at least not so early. Nonetheless, there is more than just one story when it comes to what this Prancing Horse actually is.

The source of the picture, dpccars, claims that this has been hanging out with a second image, one that simply says “Ferrari SP America”. The speculation here is that we are dealing with an example of the one-offs Ferrari does for its special customers. If this is true, then Prancing Horse may never show its creation to the world, depending on what the customer wants.

After all, such a custom development would cost a small fortune. Sure, this doesn’t seem to go to the same depths as Eric Clapton's SP12 EC, but the musician claims to have spent $4.7 million on the 458-based project.

Nevertheless, this could very well be the Spider version of the F12, something like the 575M Superamerica Ferrari offered us back in 2005. Still, Ferrari has moved on to a smarter roof solution meanwhile with the California and the 458 Spider. And we'll remind you the 458 Spider closely resembles a targa configuration, so Ferrari would also tick this box. Of course, the 575M Superamerica’s flipping roof remains more spectacular.

We’ll remind you that the leaked Ferrari FF one-off patent drawings, which seemed to bring a coupe version, still haven’t turned to reality, at least not that we know of. This doesn’t seem to be the case here though, since the face is clearly closer to that of the F12 Berlinetta.
