Earlier this month, Ferrari filled some patent drawings revealing a new model that many people believed was the new Ferrari California . On the same day, Ferrari also filed a patent for the new "SP FFX" name and an accompanying logo. These two occurrences on the same day lead us to believe that those patent drawings were, in fact, of the SP FFX.
First things first; why is it unlikely that these drawings are of the new California? Mainly because the car showed in the images featured Ferrari FF door mirrors, headlights, taillights and general proportions. These make us believe that we were actually looking at a special FF Coupe.
The SP FFX name is a little unclear, but we do know that SP stands for Special Projects. As for the "FFX;" that part makes it pretty clear that a special edition FF is on its way.
If this is true, then we expect the SP FFX to be a one-off model that features a V-12 engine with more than 650 horsepower and a top speed of 200 mph.

The Ferrari FF was unveiled at the 2011 Geneva Motor Show and it is by far the strangest model offered by Ferrari in the past few years. The FF features a shooting brake-like body style, with a front end clearly inspired by the 458 Italia and a large rear hatch. It is the only model offered by Ferrari that can accommodate four passengers and their luggage.
Under the hood, the FF gets a 6.3 liter, V-12 engine that delivers an impressive 660 horsepower at 8,000 rpm and a peak torque of 503 lbs-ft 6,000 rpm. With this impressive power, the FF can sprint from 0 to 60 mph in 3.7 seconds and up to a top speed of 208 mph.
