It was sitting along with an F60 America and a P540 Superfast Aperta when it was photographed at the Ferrari Finali Mondiali year-end gathering last weekend. Indeed, fans couldn’t get enough of reports about the new special edition Ferrari. This basically explains why a Ferrari “F12 TdF” Facebook fan page and the “FerrariChat” forum have been flooded with “shares” after the new Ferrari SP275 RW Competizione was revealed.
Of course this isn’t the first time that a Ferrari was made by special order. Clients who want more from a standard Ferrari can have this unique Prancing Horse with a bespoke design. Dr. Rick Workman, a dentist from Florida, actually had his initials on the SP275 sports car. That information comes from one contributor at the online forum where Ferrari Fans meet and share their latest Ferrari revelations. We also learned that it took a couple of years for Ferrari to complete the special edition model. There are no details regarding the price but we know that the Florida dentist had it delivered to his place about a week ago.
The one-off Ferrari with personalised bodyworks is actually based on the F12 Berlinetta. Dressed up in Giallo “tripolo strato” yellow with a touch of blue trims, the SP275 RW Competizione obviously borrowed its styling cues from the 275 GTB. Others would say it looks like the 1964 Ferrari 275 GTB/C Speciale that Preston Henn, an American entrepreneur and Ferrari collector apparently owns.
Though the new special edition Ferrari features a subtler approach than last year’s Berlinetta Lusso, we can see the two have similarities especially with the front end styling. Be that as it may, it looks simpler and more elegant without the hood scoop that typically comes with a Berlinetta. In fact, this SP275 RW Competizione Ferrari has the F60 America’s headlights and the 275 GTB’s side gills as well. Talk about a coincidence.
We don’t know if the SP275 RW Competizione has further upgraded its engine. Either way, we think the F12tdf has enough power to sprint from 0-100 kilometres per hour in less than 3 seconds. Not to mention a top speed ranging up to 211 miles per hour. This may well be the same with the SP275 one-off Ferrari.
The special edition Tour de France Ferrari uses a V12 naturally aspirated engine capable of blowing up to 780 horsepower and 521 lb-ft of torque. The F12tdf Ferrari was reportedly sold out, as there were only 799 units available for sale. If we’re going to base it on the F12tdf’s €310,184 price tag (tax not included), then we could only expect the SP275 RW Competizione’s price to be much higher.
