Ferrari Pininfarina Sergio #001.
Presented at the Salon of Geneva 2013, Pininfarina Sergio Concept was the best tribute to the coachbuilder to the then-recent death of Sergio Pininfarina, visible head of the coachbuilder Italian in the last few decades and son of the founder, Batista “Pinin” Farina -the surname was originally Farina and Pinin, his nickname, means little. The beautiful concept soon took potential customers and Pininfarina decided to bring it to production, in collaboration with Ferrari, but in a short and exclusive run of only 6 copies.
In 2015 he was presented the production version, less radical than the concept of original, which even had a windshield, but it kept the pure lines and aggressive prototype 2013. These units had a price of $ 3 million, but they still found a buyer very soon. One of these units was to the United Arab Emirates, the other 3 ended up in the united States and the other two ended up in Japan and in Switzerland respectively. The only copy that remained in Europe was the first of all the production , and is the vehicle that appears in the images, now available for sale for a price of $ 5 million.
If the concept took as a basis the the Ferrari 458 Spider, the production model was based on the variant more prestacional of this model, the 458 Speciale A. The model donor only remain at a visual level the windshield and the passenger compartment, the rest of the panels are completely new, and it is very complex to guess at a glance what model is related to the technical level. Frame and mechanics, in theory, remain unchanged, so that it keeps the same aspirated V8 (the last atmospheric V8 from series of the brand) that we could find in the Speciale and Speciale A.
Only were manufactured six specimens.
The eight-cylinder motor naturally aspirated 4.5-liter delivery 605 CV at 9000 rpm, 35 HP more than the Ferrari 458 Italia, and allows the Ferrari Sergio can accelerate from 0 to 100 km/h in just 3.0 seconds.
The drive to switzerland, which appears in the images, was commissioned in a bright yellow although it has not been able to see too much asphalt in the last two years, since your odometer reflects only 118 miles of use. So we can consider it as a model brand new.
Due to their rarity, not only due to its scarce production, but also by the nature of their origin, created in homage to the vast and prolific career of Sergio Pininfarina, it is not surprising that its owner has decided to to put it for sale for 5 million dollars. A price clearly optimistic, but that should not stop more than one collector, especially those who are not able to do on your day with one of these rare units.
