What you’re looking at is the Ferrari SP3JC, and while it may not have the most appealing name imaginable, the car itself is very special.
Commissioned by Ferrari dealer Talacrest chairman John Collins, the SP3JC is the latest vehicle from Maranello’s Special Projects Division and follows in the footsteps of previous creations by being based around an existing model overhauled with exterior and interior modifications.
The most important thing to know about the SP3JC is that it is based around the 812 Superfast. This is interesting, because the 812 is sold exclusively as a coupe while the SP3JC utilizes an open-air design. The vehicle’s release also follows on from recent reports that Ferrari is considering mass-producing a droptop version of the 812.
Beyond its lack of a fixed roof, the SP3JC stands out in other areas as well. For example, it features a bespoke front fascia with headlights more similar to those of the F12 Berlinetta than the 812. Elsewhere, there are a set of new wheels and a rear fascia which, to our eyes, appears a little overdone.
For starters, the rear uses an over-the-top carbon fiber bumper and diffuser design with quad tailpipes which looks quite bulky. Just above this carbon piece sit two horizontal slits ,and directly above them a curved slip that connects the taillights. The rear is completed with a custom decklid with yellow detailing.
Limited images of the car’s interior are available so far, but we can see that it incorporates a healthy dose of blue leather.
As is typical with Ferrari Special Project creations, expect more details about the car to trickle out into the public eye in the near future.
