Could this mystery car spotted at Ferrari’s [NYSE:RACE] Fiorano test track be the next Special Projects creation?
The car is clearly based on the new 488 GTB but doesn’t look to be sharing any body panels with the turbocharged mid-engine supercar.
Even the shape of the glasshouse has been changed and now resembles the jet fighter-style cockpit made popular on the Nissan GT-R.

The unique elements and the fact the car isn’t camouflaged suggest it’s a Special Projects creation. Only Ferrari's most loyal customers are invited to participate in the creation of a Special Projects car, often referred to as SP cars. And the price tag for one usually starts around $4 million.
It’s been almost two years since we last saw an SP car. The last was the F12 TRS believed to have been commissioned by a British customer. Other memorable SP cars include Eric Clapton’s SP12 EPC and the flip-folding-roof-equipped Superamerica 45.
We’ll update the post as soon as we have more details on this latest car. In the meantime, you can view more photos of it over at enthusiast website Zero2Turbo.
