The Ferrari SP3JC's
A few months ago Ferrari’s in-house ‘Special Projects’ division released images of the SP3JC, a unique open-top supercar commissioned by UK-based Ferrari afficionado, John Collins (the same individual who, in August, picked up one of the few LaFerrari test mules offered to select high profile clientele). Collins’ brief to Ferrari was to ‘create a pure, uncompromising roadster’, built atop the running gear and basic underpinnings of the limited-run F12tdf. The design was said to hark back to the V12-engined spiders of the 1950s and ‘60s, while the owner’s interest in pop art was reflected in the car’s triple-layered livery.
While the SP3JC’s initial press release - written in regards to the gloss white car - stated that it was the ‘sole one-off car to be comissioned’ as part of the project, photos began emerging of a second matt black car present during the handover in late December. As it turns out, the original brief had also requested that two working SP3JC’s be built - one in right hand drive and the other in left hand drive - so that the owner could drive his custom Ferrari virtually anywhere. What’s more is that this second, LHD SP3JC was the first car Ferrari have ever painted in a combination of both gloss and matt finishes (you can see this in the photos further down). If you had to choose, which one are you picking?
