Latest Ferrari Special Projects car is the F12-based SP275 RW
If you’re one of Ferrari’s [NYSE:RACE] most loyal of loyal customers, you may be fortunate enough to be invited to commission a bespoke coachbuilt car, a one-off developed by the automaker’s Special Projects division.
Ferrari has been churning out the Special Projects cars at the rate of about two per year, the first of which was the F430-based SP1 that appeared in 2008.
The latest Special Projects Ferrari is the SP275 RW Competizione based on an F12 Berlinetta, which debuted on the weekend at the Finali Mondiali event in Daytona, Florida. Ferrari is yet to formally announce the car but we have these photos courtesy of Facebook page Ferrari F12 TdF.
The car’s owner is thought to be Florida dentist Rick Workman (hence the “RW” in the title), a famous Ferrari collector and previous Special Projects customer. Workman also owns the 599-based P540 Superfast Aperta unveiled in 2009 and the F12-based F60 America unveiled in 2014. Both cars are shown alongside the SP275 RW in the photos above.
And the “275” in the name is a reference to the 1964 Ferrari 275 GTB/C, of which just three were made. Fellow Florida resident Preston Henn owns the sole example to have been raced, a car many consider to be the ultimate Ferrari and the most valuable car in the world.
We don’t have any further details but considering most Special Projects Ferraris don’t have any mechanical mods, the SP275 RW is likely packing the F12 Berlinetta’s stock 6.3-liter V-12 good for 729 horsepower and 508 pound-feet of torque.
