Ferrari SA APERTA

The Italian company has published three photos and preliminary information regarding the Ferrari SA APERTA - the roadster version of the 599 which will premiere at the 2010 Paris Motor Show next week.

The Ferrari SA APERTA will be produced as a limited series of 80 units, as a celebration to Pininfarina's 80th birthday. The SA initials from the Ferrari SA APERTA pay homage to both Sergio and Andrea Pininfarina, and under the bonnet there is the company;s signature V12 engine delivering 670 HP.

The Ferrari SA APERTA features a lightweight hood, a lowered windshield and two aerodynamic fins integrating the two roll-bars.

The Ferrari SA APERTA price was not announced yet, but as win any special edition model coming from the Prancing Horse, it probably would not matter, as they will gt sold before we know it.

Ferrari press release :

Maranello, 24th September 2010 – Ferrari is delighted to announce the presentation of the SA APERTA at the Paris International Motor Show 2010. This is a special series model of which a strictly limited number of just 80 will be built. All have already been sold. Ferrari chose to build 80 SA APERTAs in celebration of Pininfarina's 80th anniversary. The SA nomenclature also pays homage to both Sergio and Andrea Pininfarina whose company and work have been linked to the most successful road-going cars ever built at Maranello.

The SA APERTA is a true roadster which allows its occupants to enjoy the superlative emotions afforded by our signature front-engined V12 architecture in a completely open-top setting. In fact, it has just a light soft top designed to be resorted to only if the weather gets particularly bad. A low-slung windscreen and the

fact that it crouches lower to the ground than our other models lend the SA APERTA an exceptionally aerodynamic sleekness. Its profile arches back from the A-post to two aerodynamic fins beautifully integrating the two roll-barswhich themselves cleverly mimic the outline of the seats.

The chassis has been redesigned to deliver a standard of stiffness comparable to that of a closed berlinetta and there is a negligible weight difference also, thanks to work done on the chassis structure.

Thanksto the 670 CV engine beneath its bonnet, the SA APERTA beautifully embodies the sporty spirit of the 599, incorporating Ferrari's most advanced technology to deliver absolutely benchmark performance and superb driving pleasure. Its interior too is stylishly sporty with particularly sophisticated materials, trim and colours used throughout. The virtually endless combinations available guarantee that each and every SA APERTA is absolutely unique.
