Ferrari has unveiled the rumoured roadster variant of the 599, dubbed the SA Aperta. It will make its live debut at the Paris Motor Show.
A Ferrari 599 Roadster was reportedly present at Pebble Beach, with an undisclosed source at Ferrari confirming the report.
After giving us the gorgeous P4/5 one-off a few years ago, Ferrari’s special programme (The kind of thing that sucks up your wallet but builds a car just for you) has now spawned this thing. It’s called the P540 Superfast Aperta and it makes no sense to me. I just know the ‘Superfast’ bit sounds really good. This car has been built for an American client and it took Ferrari 14 months to get it finished. It’s based on the Ferrari 599 GTB Fiorano only that it has been strengthened as the roof has been chopped off. The so-called American client is Edward Walson who thought that a one-off Ferrari is a sensible gift for Christmas, for himself. The performance is still there mainly due to the Enzo engine present in the 599 as well. It has 620 hp and 608 nm of torque but the most important thing is the new body style the car has received.
Ferrari may be working on a road-going, non-experimental edition of the 599XX called the 599 GTO, in honour of the legendary 250 GTO.
