Ferrari SA Aperta: The 599 goes topless.

The Ferrari SA Aperta is the open-top version of the Ferrari 599 and will be officially presented at the 2010 Paris Motor Show. Not only is it a sexy little machine, it should also be a very sophisticated drophead example of the 599 with Ferrari claiming it has done plenty of chassis work to keep things stiff. The ‘SA’ acronym is for Sergio and Andrea Pininfarina, to whom this car is dedicated.

The SA Aperta will be equipped with the same 599 GTO V12 engine with 670 hp. The dedication to Pininfarina may have been a difficult one to pull off but Ferrari has done a good job with the rear roll bars incorporated into the profile of the seats, creating a smooth and sporty look. Only 80 of these will be produced and they’ve already been sold so we’ll be having a first and likely last look at this Ferrari at the Paris show – live pics to come later this week.
