The one-off Ferrari SP3JC is the ultimate expression of uncompromised open-air motoring

December 20, 2018

Car enthusiast old enough may recall Ferraris of yore, particularly the spiders that ruled the road and the track back in the 1950s and 60s. These cars are what seemed to inspire this one-off creation known as the SP3JC.

Commissioned by an owner who has a flair for uniqueness, the spider takes its cue from its forbearers and mixes this with ultra-modern F12tdf underpinnings. Designed by the Ferrari Styling Centre for a collector who has some of the finest steeds in the world, the SP3JC features styling bits that are a true expression of uncompromised open-air motoring.

The wide-bodied look, for instance, emphasizes its front-engined nature, along with the prominent air intake that that will appear on many a rearview mirror. This tells the world that they better get out of the way of this powerful machine.

This being a Ferrari, sporty touches abound, such as the split glass inserts on the hood, an aluminum fuel filler cap, and a “flying bridge” between the carbon fiber roll hoops. This is complemented by blue with white accents that line the seats and other interior bits. All this is finished off by a Blanco Italia paint job with Azzurro Met and Giallo Modena livery—an ode to the owner’s fascination with Pop Art.

Powering this beauty is the F12tdf’s 780hp motor that not only assures potent thrust but a glorious soundtrack that can be truly appreciated once the throttle is at full bore and the wind blows tha hair. Yes, this is the spider lifestyle in the metal.
