Once the most dominant force in the World Sportscar Championship with its prototypes and GTs, Scuderia Ferrari earned 14 titles in two decades prior to withdrawing altogether in 1973 to concentrate on Formula One instead. Ferrari’s racing team had middling success toward the end of its run, but in the 1990s, the Italian car brand decided to throw its hat back in the ring, regardless of the declining interest in the sport by that time.

1993 debuted the first — and still the most recent — racecar prototype by Ferrari since the ’70s. An evolution of the successful P-series models from decades before, such as the 250 P, 275P, and 312 PB, the 333 SP was as refined as ever for the Scuderia Ferrari’s foray back into the world of endurance racing. The new model ended up winning the 24 Hours of Daytona in 1998 and the 12 Hours of Sebring in 1995, 1997, and 1998.

The 1999 example of Ferrari’s 333 SP that’s up for private sale today through RM Sotheby’s is numbered 32 out of the 41 ever produced. Painted in Rosso Corsa, the vehicle has been given copious upgrades by Michelotto and has been track-tested and race-prepped, eligible for competition at Ferrari Corse Clienti. The car is equipped with Ferrari’s F130E V12 4.0L engine producing 641hp, an upgrade from the 3.5L fitted on the 1990 Ferrari 641 used for F1 racing years earlier.

This 1999 Ferrari 333 SP is currently up for sale from a private seller via RM Sotheby’s and is taking inquiries now. Its asking price is only available upon request, although other examples have been listed for around $3,000,000.
