Is that the Toyota FT-1? Nope, it’s Ferrari’s ‘SP America’, a 250 GTO-inspired one-off

Ferrari isn’t primarily known for making custom cars, but that hasn’t stopped the madmen from Maranello from churning out a fair number of them. The most recent example of a custom Ferrari, from the sinister sounding Special Projects Division is the F12 Berlinetta-based SP America.

The car will be debuted at the ongoing 2014 Goodwood Festival of Speed. According to the Supercar Kids the SP America will be on display alongside the other Ferraris at the Ferrari Cavalcade.

However, despite its presence alongside other “showroom” models, it is almost certain that the SP America was commissioned by some inspired billionaire and has in fact already been sold.

That might explain why there are few details available about the car, particularly in the form of performance specs. That being said, even if it is essentially a stock F12 underneath with “just” 730 horsepower and a 0 to 60 time of 3.1 seconds, that billionaire should be fine.

Styling wise the SP America takes some inspiration from the classic 250 GTO, including a long hood ridge, a trio of front vents, and a ducktail spoiler. However, despite these cues, the SP America seems to look a lot more like Toyota’s recent concept supercar the FT-1.

Not that I am complaining mind you; I wish all cars looked more like the FT-1.

More details about the SP America and it is ownership will likely be available as the car makes the rounds of various events like Goodwood and the Pebble Beach Concourse. So check back to find out more.
