High end Ferrari’s are a rare breed on the road, and a run of one even more so. In 2012, An Indian born petrochemical expert, with a love for Supercars, and built by the Ferrari special projects division, took a 599GTO and added components from other cars to make the one of a kind prancing pony, dubbed the SP30. The naturally aspirated V12 6 litre power unit delivers 661 horsepower and is mounted to the Grand Tourers chassis and drivetrain, this produces a blistering top speed of 208 mph, and generating a 0-60mph in just 3.3 seconds. This gave it the chance to be the quickest around the legendary Fiorano test track, if only for a short time.
The rest of the SP30 wasn’t an exception to being modified. Headlights from the 458 Italia were added, and a bonnet was created with a striking resemblance to that of the F12. The rear end had inspiration from the 599XX track car, all this adds up to a beautiful looking machine, no matter what angle you look at it. Inside mostly resembles the 599, apart from the centre console, which is borrowed from Ferrari 612. The SP30 doesn’t include any floor carpets, but does come with a bespoke luggage set for those long journeys.
So why is it still for sale?
A one of a kind Ferrari that is now 8 years old, 103 miles driven and with the centre console still having its protective plastic to be peeled off, why won’t it sell?
It’s the question nobody has an answer to. It first appeared for auction in 2018 by Sotheby’s in Paris, from a Texas based supercar dealer. No one knows why it didn’t sell, maybe it’s so unique that people are being put off not knowing it’s true value.
The Ferrari SP30 currently resides at Crave Luxury Autos and is still for sale if anyone is prepared to make an offer.
