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-bars
which themselves cleverly mimic the outline of the seats.
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.
to 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.
