Ferrari reveals its latest bespoke one-off: the SP 275 rw competizione

Maranello, 21 December 2016 – Designed under the direction of Ferrari's Styling Centre wîth the collaboration of Pininfarina, the latest Ferrari one-off model, the SP 275 rw competizione, is built  on the chassis of the F12berlinetta but equipped wîth the more powerful V12 engine and gearbox from the limited-series F12tdf.
 
Drawing inspiration from the 275 GTB, one of the most iconic front-engined V12 berlinettas of the 1960s, the SP 275 rw competizione features  a thoroughly modern interpretation of some of the themes that give the 275 GTB its berlinetta connotation, such as the quest for the ultimate balance in proportions and the pure and curvaceous surface treatment. The stance of the car, particularly in the muscular transition from the rear three-quarter panel to the wheelarch was carefully refined wîth a slightly wider track to express potency over the rear wheels and confer a rakish attitude.
 
The characteristic front engine-bay vents of the 275 GTB are an evident styling cue, as is the adoption of the triple louvres in the three-quarter panel in place of the F12berlinetta's B-post quarterlights. The louvres on the rear bumper, together wîth the pronounced nolder on the tail and milled aluminium fuel filler cap, recall instead the special competition-developed 275 GTB (chassis number 06885) that won the GT category in the 1965 Le Mans 24 Hour race, coming home an impressive third overall behind the winning 250 LM. The yellow paint scheme is also a tribute to that 275 GTB, echoing its Ecurie Francorchamps team colour.
 
The front features a closed perimeter Ferrari grille wîth a prominent yet smoothly integrated bonnet bulge, while the slim, vertically-stacked headlights and forged 20' alloys are unique to this car.
