You remember that Ferrari coupe? The interwebs were ablaze in speculation over what the car depicted could be, and we’ve been watching them all until we landed on the one that seems to make the most sense.

While some speculated that this could be a new FF, our friends over at Jalopnik suggest, with sound reason, that what we’re actually looking at is what we figured in the first place: that this is a one-off FF-based coupe being built for a private customer.

Perhaps the single biggest indicator doesn’t lie in the drawings themselves, but the detail that everyone else seemed to have missed: at the same time as these drawings were submitted, Ferrari filed for another patent with the Italian government for the name SP FFX and the logo pictured above.

Those frightened words floated from the mouth of a five-year-old boy strapped snugly into a booster seat in the backseat of the Ferrari FF I was piloting. Moments earlier, his father had allowed me to take him, and his two brothers, for their first ride in a supercar, and I had apparently failed miserably.

I craned my neck and moved slightly to the right, in an attempt to see him in the rearview mirror, before I asked with a cautionary tone, “What did you just say?” My mind raced during the next few seconds of silence. I wondered if I had unnecessarily traumatized him, or worse – given the little guy his first case of whiplash.

I knew this 651-horsepower Italian was going to get me into trouble.
