Ferrari has finally made a convertible version of its flagship car, the 599 GTB Fiorano. Unfortunately, only 80 will be made and each unit has been pre-sold.
Built to celebrate the 80th anniversary of Italian design house and frequent Ferrari collaborator Pininfarina, the car is called SA APERTA as homage to Sergio and Andrea Pininfarina whose company and work “have been linked to the most successful road-going cars ever built at Maranello,” Ferrari said in its statement.
Designed as a true roadster, the SA APERTA has a low-slung windscreen that enhances the car’s low-to-the-ground look. Helping add to the SA APERTA’s sleekness are the two aerodynamic fins that, along with the two roll bars, cleverly mimic the outline of the seats.
Though it only has a light soft cloth top to protect its occupants from the elements, its chassis has been redesigned to be as stiff as that of its coupé berlinetta counterpart while weighing in at roughly the same figure.
Powering the SA APERTA will be the same V12 engine used in the standard 599 GTB Fiorano.
