It’s another limited-edition Ferrari! However, unlike the Italian carmaker’s previous introduction – the J50 – there will only be one unit of the SP 275 rw competizione in the entire world. Inspired by the 275 GTB competition car from the 1960s and designed by Ferrari’s Centro Stile, the SP 275 is built on the chassis of the F12berlinetta but comes equipped with the more powerful engine and gearbox from the 799-unit-only F12tdf.

Lift the reshaped hood and you’ll find a 6.3 litre naturally-aspirated V12 engine with 770 hp and 705 Nm of torque, sent through a seven-speed F1 DCT (dual-clutch transmission), and on to the rear wheels.

Visually, the car pays tribute to the 275 GTB with a modern interpretation of some of the cues seen on the berlinetta. The aggressive outlook of the standard F12 has been done away with, replaced by a “pure and curvaceous surface treatment,” as Ferrari put it.

Obvious highlights include the lourvres just behind the front wheels, the B-pillars and rear bumper, all hallmarks seen on the 275 GTB/C (chassis number 06885) that won the in the GT category in the 1965 Le Mans 24 Hour race behind the prototype 250 LMs.

Further visual tributes include the boot lid spoiler and milled aluminium fuel filler cap, and the car is finished in a yellow paint scheme, the same colours used by the Ecurie Francorchamps, the team that won in 1965.

Elsewhere, there is a new grille, vertically-stacked headlights, and forged 20-inch alloys that are unique to this car. Less profound changes include the transition from the rear three-quarter panel to the wheelarch, which has been carefully tweaked to introduce a slightly wider track than before.

As a bit of trivia, the 275 GTB is one of the world’s most expensive cars in the auction market, easily hitting several million dollars. The company did not disclose how much the SP 275 will be sold for, but we reckon it’s going to cost quite a substantial amount.

Oh, and the ‘rw’ in the car’s name represents the initials of the car’s owner, a dentist based in Florida called Rick Workman. Aside from his new acquisition, he is owner of two previous special project cars – the 599-based P540 Superfast Aperta and the F12-based F60 America. Like what you see?
