The Ferrari SA Aperta is a limited edition roadster version
of the Ferrari 599. Only
80 examples will be built, and they were all sold to hand picked
Ferrari customers before the car was even revealed!
Only 80 Ferrari SA Aperta's will be built
Ferrari chose to build 80 SA Aperta's because this year Ferrari's
design studio of choice, Pininfarina, turns 80. The SA name
also pays homage to both Sergio and Andrea
The Ferrari SA Aperta is a stunning roadster which builds on
the already sublime proportions of the 599 coupe. The fabric
roof which comes with the car isn't designed for regular use
- it's basically a last resort if you get caught out in the
rain. Ferrari don't even try and pretend it's a practical weatherproof
The Ferrari SA Aperta roadster sits closer to the ground than
the standard 599, and it also has a slightly lower windscreen.
Overall this gives the car a more slippery aerodynamic
profile befitting a high-end roadster. The silver fins built
into the rear deck of the car nicely compliment the car's silver
colored windscreen surround and side mirrors.
The chassis of the Ferrari 599 SA Aperta has been redesigned
to offer comparable stiffness to that of a closed berlinetta
and there is a negligible weight difference also, thanks to
the engineering work done on the chassis structure.
Powering the Ferrari SA Aperta is the same 670 horsepower, 6.0
litre V12 Ferrari put in the 599
GTO. That means this isn't some special edition poser's
convertible - well it might be that too - but it's also a serious
performance machine designed to compete with the very best supercars
on the planet.
