The Internet easily gets overwhelmed when images of custom-made one-offs from Ferrari surface online. One particular Ferrari recently made it to an SP America, but no further information has been disclosed.
But now, Maranello officially confirms the mystery car last week, which took part in Sicily’s Targa Florio. This new Ferrari, which is the only one of its kind, is called F12 TRS.
Judging by its name, you can easily tell that it is based on the 250 Testa Rossa of the 1950s. The 250 Testa Rossa is one of Ferrari’s ultimate racing cars that won at the Sebring, the Targa Florio, the Nürburgring, and the Le Mans back in the late 1950s and the early 1960s.
This is number 21 in the list of Ferrari’s Special Project since the luxury race car manufacturer started producing these one-offs to its wealthiest clients, who managed to keep it low key.
Ferrari one-offs are usually designed by Pininfarina, but TRS was created under Flavio Manzoni’s direction in centro stile.
Some of the most obvious highlights of the car are its side glass, windscreen and of course, the chopped off roof. The car also features the rear deck of the classic super sexy endurance racers of the 1950s.
Ferrari’s Special Projects division is under strict rules undergoing homologation, which is why some of the major features of the cars are fixed based on the car company’s standards. SP cars also can’t have custom performance improvement, which these cars actually don’t need in the first place.
Its aero dynamics can be experimented by the clients though, along with some other aspects. You can see that the car’s aero bridge is obviously customized. Its Venturi, diffuser and Venturi are new. You can also see its red cylinder heads through the bonnet’s window, which is usually for mid-engine models.
All of these features can be yours if you have $5 million at your disposal.
