Ferrari has released photos of the new SA Aperta sports car ahead of the Paris Motor Show 20010. Only 80 units of the SA Aperta will be built—as a tribute to Italian design firm Pininfarina’s 80th anniversary. Surprisingly, all the models have been pre-sold even before its unveiling at the Paris show!
The “SA” nomenclature represents the designer duo of Sergio and Andrea Pininfarina. Aperta, meanwhile, is Italian for “open.”
Diehard Ferrari fans might have, from the photos, already noticed the SA Aperta’s striking resemblance to the 599 GTO. However, Ferrari has reengineered the special-edition race car, giving it a lowered suspension to make it sportier. From the photos, we can see that the SA Asperta roadster has stylish low-slung windscreen and a light soft top just in case the weather turns bad. The two aerodynamic fins artistically merge the two roll bars revealing the tactfully sculpted twin seats.
The Ferrari SA Apertasports sports the same 670 hp, 6-litre, V12 engine that’s on the 599 GTO. The performance will likely be similar. Expect the SA Aperta to take off from 0-100 kmph in just 3.5 seconds, with the top whack a jaw-dropping 334 kmph!
Ferrari says each of the 80 special edition SA Aperta roadsters will be unique in terms of the colors, interiors and the likes. Wondering what those 80 lucky chaps would pay for this stunning beauty? Approximately £340,000 (Rs 2.40 crore)!
We will bring you more photos of the Ferrari SA Asperta when it is unveiled at the Paris Auto Show 2010. Stay tuned!
