The Final Mondiali at Daytona International Speedway has thrown up some interesting stories this weekend. Perhaps the most significant is the sighting go this mysterious Ferrari SP275 RW Competizione. Very little detail is known about the SP275 RW Competizione, it sits next to the Ferrari P540 Superfast and Ferrari F60 America; a trio of ultra-rare modern Ferrari’s!

If so, it should manage 770 hp from its 6.3-liter naturally aspirated V12! We are told that it was delivered to its owner, Dr. Rick Workman of Florida, around a week ago. Workman has built quite a name for himself in the classic Ferrari community, owning one of 10 Ferrari 275 GTB/4S Spyder’s, a stunning Ferrari 400 Superamerica Coupe and a Ferrari 250 GT SWB California Spyder among others. The P540 Superfast is believed to be owned by Edward Walson, son of John Walson, the inventor of cable TV whilst the F60 America
