Ferrari's Special Project creating one-offs for its best, wealthiest customers (Part-2)

Continues the discussion of the previous section. As we all knew, Ferrari is often regarded as an exotic and rare car, but some people especially wealthiest customers want to have a unique Ferrari and one-of-a-kind in the world. And to satisfy their customer, the Italian prancing horse logoed premium car manufacturer decided to establish the Special Projects, a division of the company responsible for creating one-offs for its best, wealthiest customers..

It should be noted, not everyone can order a car through the Ferrari's Special Project division. Besides requiring a tons of money up to millions of dollars. Only the customers who are considered by Ferrari have a history directly related to their car products that can participate in these Special Project program. And the following are some of them in 2nd part:

7. Ferrari F12 TRS 
This one-off was inspired by the legendary 1957 Ferrari 250 Testa Rossa as requested by the owner and making its first major appearance at the 2014 Goodwood Festival of Speed.

Engine wise the performance figures stay the same as its hard topped counterpart. The same 6.3-litre V12 engine resides within, pushing out 730 bhp through the rear wheels, surrounded in 315 section tyres..

8. Ferrari SP FFX
Initially, people thought this car would be a production FF coupe. It is not surprising, the car built based on a standard Ferrari FF, with the most prominent revision being the adoption of a coupé rear end in place of the FF's shooting brake tail.

The design blends elements of several contemporary Ferraris and an F1-inspired red and white paint job. The car commisioned by Shin Okamoto, but it turned out to be a one-off. It lives somewhere in Japan, where it's been shown a handful of times.

9. Ferrari  SP America 
Ferrari SP America is a F12 Berlinetta-based one-off coupé completed in 2014. The car features thoroughly updated styling including a new front end with a new bonnet, wheel arches, front bumper and splitter, side skirts, wheels, bootlid spoiler, rear bumper, B-pillars and a new aggressive rear diffuser.

Information about this car is scarce, but it's most likely an F12-based one-off owned by an American collector. Apparently it belongs to Danny Wegman, of Wegman's supermarket fame.

10. Ferrari SP 275 RW Competizione
The car was designed in collaboration with Pininfarina and comissioned by an American client Rick Workman. The car used a 770-hp V12 engine from the crazy F12tdf. 
Its design is inspired by the lovely 275 Berlinetta from the 1960s. It's painted yellow in tribute to the 275 GTB Competizione that won its class at Le Mans in 1965.

11. Ferrari 458 MM Speciale 
This lovely car is based on a 458 Speciale, and it was built for an unknown British collector. The design pays homage to the Ferrari 288 GTO and incorporates handcrafted aluminium and carbon fibre components.

Performance figures remain unknown but are rumoured to be the same as the normal Speciale.. Might be, it's one of the prettiest cars on this list.

12. Ferrari SP38 'Deborah'
After that there was also a Ferrari SP38 'Deborah' which was built based on the Ferrari 488 GTB that had been offered for sale with a price tag of up to €4 million, equivalent to Rp.63 billions at the Concorso d'Eleganza Villa d'Este event in May 2018. 
This car lastly appeared at the 2019 Automobile International (FAI) Festival at the beginning of 2019..

13. Ferrari SP3 JC
The car presented in November 2018, the SP3JC is a one-off roadster based on the F12tdf chassis. It was designed by the Ferrari Styling Centre to pay homage to Ferrari roadsters of 1950s and 1960s. The body has been completely redesigned, and includes redrawn front and rear fascias, a new front bumper, a rear diffuser, transparent hood vents that show off the engine, roll hoops behind the seats, taillights and wheels from the Ferrari 812 Superfast and a blue, white and yellow paint job that pays homage to the 1962 Ferrari 250 GTO.
And 'JC' stands for John Collins, a Scottish collector and founder of Talacrest, a classic Ferrari dealer located in the U.K. He commissioned these one-off in mid 2014 and it took 3.5 years to complete. Ferrari said the design process alone took 2 of those years.

14. Ferrari P80/C
The car built based on the 488 GT3 race car, that pays tribute to Ferrari's sports prototypes of the 1960s and specially created for @mr_tk and could be delivered by Blackbird Concessionaries in Hong Kong.
Ferrari P80/C is a pure track car with peak performance being a major factor and for sure, it is absolutely stunning, Just look at it! It's perfect.. (Return to part one.) *** [EKA | FROM VARIOUS SOURCES | MOTORWARD | ROAD AND TRACK | DRIVE TRIBE | COACHBUILD.COM]
