New Ferrari SPCJ3 Is Actually Based On The Raging F12tdf

Shortly after grainy images of the one-off Ferrari SPCJ3 emerged online, the Italian manufacturer has officially unveiled the car to the world.

Contrary to what was initially thought, the SPCJ3 isn’t based around the 812 Superfast. Instead, it actually uses the chassis and running gear of an F12tdf, arguably making it even more special. The closest thing made to an F12tdf Convertible before the SPCJ3 are the trio of F12 TRS models built a few years back.

As the bespoke supercar is based on the 812 Superfast, it doesn’t use a naturally-aspirated 6.5-liter V12 engine but instead has a slightly smaller 6.3-liter unit. Despite this, the high-revving powertrain still manages to churn out 769 hp, more than enough for any motoring enthusiast.

Ferrari says that the wealthy owner who commissioned the one-off has a strong passion for Pop Art and that this inspired the exterior look. Most of the SPCJ3 is painted in Bianco Italia but it then features a special livery incorporating Azzurro Met and Giallo Modena. It’s not just the paint scheme that makes the car stand out.

Striking new bodywork dominates the vehicle and is the culmination of more than two years of work between the owner and Ferrari. The front includes an eye-catching bumper and a hood with two cut-outs that offer a glimpse of the mighty Italian powertrain.

Spin around to the rear and you’ll find even more unique elements, such as carbon fiber roll hoops and a flying bridge that connects them. Additionally, there’s a brushed aluminum external fuel filler cap, carbon fiber diffuser, quad tailpipes, and a number of horizontal slashes that give off the impression of a wider stance.

Inside, the owner opted for blue and white leather across the seats and dashboard. Contrast stitching is also present throughout.
