A UAE-based businessman has commissioned the Ferrari special projects team to build him a one-of-its-kind car.

The special-edition Ferrari 599 GTO - called the Ferrari SP Arya - is being built for Cheerag Arya, the CEO of JBF, a petrochemicals company based in Ras Al Khaimah at its Maranello factory in Italy.

It will be the fifth car to leave the special projects factory following the SP1, the P540 Superfast Aperta, Eric Clapton’s SP12 EPC and the Ferrari Superamerica 45, magazine GTSpirit reported.

According to reports, Arya's other cars of choice include a 599 GTO, a Daytona, an F40, a 599XX and an SA Aperta.

In comments published by the magazine, Arya said: "I told the designers what I wanted and they presented me with a total of 12 designs.

"I then picked the bits from each that I liked until we got an idea of the car I had in mind. A bit like a wish list."

He did not reveal the pricetag for the exclusive car or when he was picking it up from the factory.
