Ferrari Special Projects (SP) first made headlines with the release of the SP1, which was based on an F430 and designed by Leonardo Fioravanti — former Pininfarina designer. The next came in 2009 with the release of the P540 Superfast Aperta, a 599 GTB Fiorano-based, Carrozzeria Fantuzzi-designed model for Edward Watson, and the projects have continued through 2014 with the SP-FFX. Following the reveal of the SP-FFX, we caught a mysterious Prancing Horse peeking out from under a car cover that looked like it was going to be yet another SP creation. More recently, the model showed itself when received another photo of the mysterious Ferrari completely uncovered. Reportedly named the Ferrari SP America and based on the F12berlinetta, the one-off supercar appears to be completed and is now headed to the loving arms of its new owner.

Nobody knows who the owner of the new one-off Ferrari is, but it’s obvious that he has a fine taste in supercars. At the very least, he doesn’t seem content with just owning a regular Ferrari. It has to be a unique one-off in the vein of the SP-FFX that we first saw in early 2014.

From the looks of things, you can tell that he’s in for a treat. Large front intakes are a unique departure from the F12berlinetta that the Ferrari this one-off is reportedly based on. The one-off’s hood is also markedly different, carrying three small nostrils that will send more air to the engine. Larger wheels also show themselves on this photo and according to reports, a targa-style roof is also part of the car’s overall design.

Engine numbers weren’t disclosed, but if it is based on the F12berlinetta, expect to see the same 6.3-liter, V-12 engine that bangs out 740 horsepower and 508 pound-feet of torque, good for a 3.1-second 0-to-60-mph sprint time and a 211-mph top speed.

Lamborghini Aventador

Considering the insane amount of power of the F12berlinetta, on which the SP America it is based on, the Lamborghini Aventador is the best-suited competitor for the bespoke supercar. Despite being a bit less powerful than the SP America at 700 horsepower and 509 pound-feet of torque, the bull is 0.2 seconds faster to 60 mph at 2.9 seconds. It tops speedo doesn’t stop climbing until it hits 217 mph.

Just like the SP America, the Aventador gets its juice from a V-12 engine that displaces 6.5 liters. The 12-cylinder engine works together with an ISR seven-speed transmission that weighs only 174 pounds and an all-wheel-drive system.

If the Aventador’s looks aren’t sinister enough for you, the supercar is eligible for a slight makeover through Lambo’s Ad Personam program. Slight body modifications, bespoke wheels and numerous interior amenities are just a few of the goodies that can be added to try to match the look of the SP America.
