Oh no, To be honest, I would be far more interested in owning a 333 SP over a FXX.

I've always had a problem with the looks of that car. Overall lines and shape I think are very nice, however the roll bar and spoiler just don't work for me.

333SP? Yeah baby! Endlessly better looking than an FXX or 599XX. More pure racecar, too. But I reckon it will be pretty tricky to run one. I must also wonder why in 6 years of fanatically following Ferrari, I have yet to see one in the flesh. And I have yet to see a recent picture of one in action. Where are they all?

We do have one 333 SP owner here. Very few produced so rare to see one out in public.

333 SPs are starting to appear at vintage events, both in the US and in Europe. For some recent on track pictures go to Woulter Melissen's site, ultimatecarpage.com, and search for Ferrari 333SP.

Cheers

See them all the time at cavallino. usually several. Another reason for you guys to hop over the pond and come. The sound of the 333sp is like no other. Even better- 3 or 4 of them on the track.

Have every intention of buying what should be an outstanding book. Have communicated with the author ( FXX in the family stable ) and hope he can bring/ autograph copies at FCA 2013 National Meet at Road America. IIRC, there were two of the three F-50GT's at FCA 1999, and Art Zafiripoulo drove his at FCA 2001 in Texas. One FXX was at FCA 2007 at Watkins Glen along with three 333SP's.
FCA 2009 at Road America saw three 333SP's on track. One is not yet able to commit for FCA 2013 at Road America, another tells me he wants to attend, and as for the third of those 333SP's... Continental Auto Sports ( southwest of Chicago ) unveiled the F-12 this week at a gala reception, Stunning appearance for the new model. My attention, however, was also directed to the service bay, where all parts have arrived... Master Technician Tod Ruoti already had the rebuilt motor/ clutch /gearbox bolted on the back of the "bathtub" with undertray, rear suspension, radiators, and plumbing to follow. Then, time to fire it up. I can guarantee that the track events guy for FCA Central States Region has every intention to attend FCA 2013 and consume copious quantities of 111-octane leaded at 11,000rpm.
Will also reach out again to other 333SP owners/ drivers to attend.
Does not mean the F-40 is staying home!
Look for us in garage #13 of the new garage building south part of main paddock closer to pit out near Turn 1 than to start/ finish line.
Personal taste, but I like that wide rollbar as it protects both inhabitants when you slide in a second seat.for a passenger. I don't think I'd describe the F-40 or the 333SP as " pretty ". To me, they are aggressive drop-dead sexy gorgeous. Again, personal taste.
All the best.

Got the FXX Book recently. Very interesting read with a true insiders feel to it from the client perspective. Well worth picking up.
