Owning a car that is one in just 40 is something to feel proud about and a very rare Ferrari 333 SP prototype is currently up for sale. The vehicle saw just 40 examples being built and was Ferrari's first sports prototype for 20 years and immediately made an impression thanks to its use of a 4.0-liter naturally aspirated V8. The engine churns out 641 hp at 11,000 rpm and has been modified from the 641 Formula One race car.

The Ferrari 333 SP was built towards the end of 1993 and was initially built by Dallara. While Dallara built 14 of them, the remaining 26 were built by Michelotto. This particular 333 SP, currently up for sale through RM Sotheby’s, is one of the Michelotto cars and is chassis 032.
