The second one-off supercar is the Ferrari SP America, which features lines inspired by those of the legendary 250 GTO and, like the F12 TRS, is based on the F12 Berlinetta. Photos of the car taken at the Wide World Ferrari and Maserati dealership in Spring Valley, New York were recently posted on The Supercar Kids website.
They show that the SP America features a trio of vents and a long bump in the center of the hood, just like the 250 GTO. The twin vertical vents in the front fenders, additional vents at the rear and ducktail spoiler are also elements that have been borrowed from the priceless 1960s classic.

We’re likely to see the Ferrari SP America formally introduced at the 2014 Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance in mid-August.
As mentioned, the car was developed by Ferrari’s Special Projects division, which is open to only the Italian marque’s most loyal customers and has so far resulted in seven other cars that we know of. The first was the F430-based SP1 revealed back in 2008. Subsequent cars have included the 599-based P540 Superfast Aperta, 612-based GTS Pavesi, 599-based Superamerica 45, 458-based SP12 EC, 599-based SP Arya, FF-based SP FFX and the F12-based F12 TRS.
