A Ferrari, with a V12 engine’s maximum torque and relatively modern it is not something you see every day, and the next month of August will go on sale one of the unique Ferrari 599 SA Aperta only produced 80 units. This convertible limited edition was the swan song of the generation 599, hiding under his skin the innovations on the 599 GTO, but we offer the design and possibilities of a real roadster.
A roadster with V12 engine of 670 HP, capable of doing the 0-100 Km/h in 3,6 seconds and reach 325 Km/h
Presented in 2010, the Ferrari 599 SA Aperta supposed to be the culmination of the end of the series 599. Developed as a limited edition to commemorate the 80 anniversary of the brand, the SA Aperta has redesigned part of its cabin in order to become a roadster. These changes culminated in a windshield with a greater slope and higher strength in your frame, some arches behind the seats to protect occupants in case of rollover and the design of a roof of carbon fiber and aluminum that could be folded manually taking up little space. Being critical, the SA Aperta we can define it more like a targa than a roadster.
But let’s get to what’s important. As we have already mentioned, the Ferrari 599 SA Aperta is not taken as a starting point the Ferrari 599 GTB, but I opted for the much more radical Ferrari 599 GTO. This means that we find a engine 6.0 V12 of 670 HP, automatic transmission F1, suspensions magnetoreológicas and brake carbocerámicos. In addition, at the level of the body and taper are also incorporating the changes of the GTO series.
If the Ferrari 599 GTO is an exclusive and very sought after with only 599 units being produced, the Ferrari 599 SA Aperta goes a step beyond with only 80 units assembled. This unit will be put to sale with a price of between 1.250.000 and 1.500.000 $ with a single owner and just to 1,400 kilometres.
