All 80 units of Ferrari’s special 599 SA Aperta have been scooped up but the carmaker still wanted to tease the public by unveiling the five available color and trim configurations.
Ferrari had displayed the 599 SA Aperta, the open-air version of the 599 GTB Fiorano, at this year’s Paris Motor Show. The SA Aperta, the latest variant of the 599, is produced to honor Pininfarina’s 80th anniversary, which is why there are 80 production cars.
The car features a lower, reshaped windshield, twin roll hoops integrated into the rear buttresses, and a removable fabric top. Other parts come from the remainder of the 599 range.
Most of the bodywork is borrowed from a stock 599, but the engine is the same 670hp, 6.7-liter V-12 from the 599 GTO. Ferrari’s online configurator said that the open-air 599 is offered in five different color combinations (Nero Stellato, Blu Elettrico, Giallo Tristrato, Rosso Fuoco and Rosso Dino).
Each car will be given the same chrome shadow-style rims, along with an aluminum-trimmed windshield surround, mirror caps, and rear buttresses. However, each color receives unique brake caliper paint, along with bespoke interior accents.
For example, opting for a black exterior hue adds a light brown interior with black accents, cashmere-colored stitching, and bright red brake calipers. And the red SA Aperta will receive a full black interior with red trim and white stitching, an off-white dashboard, and black brake calipers.
Indeed, the new Ferrari 599 GTB Fiorano is a mobile sculpture that boasts of a harmonious interplay of angles to convey zealous sportiness blended with a high level of distinct sophistication. Ferrari designed the interior of the new 599 GTB Fiorano to strike a fine balance between its sportiness and a sense of safety and intimacy – thanks to highly detailed personalization and highly skilled hand-crafting. For instance, the passenger sections of the 599 GTB Fiorano feature sumptuous leather trim while the driver area and controls feature carbon-fiber and aluminum detailing.
This new offering from Ferrari 599 GTB Fiorano is specified with new stunning elements like the new steering wheel and manettino and solid aluminum passenger controls, as well as central rev counter with either a red or yellow background. In addition, the new Ferrari 599 GTB Fiorano comes with new styling cues like new adaptive racing seats with carbon-fiber side rests as well as a central grip for additional passenger support.
Aside from front bi-xenon headlamps and rear LED lights as well as dusk and rain sensors, the new Ferrari 599 GTB Fiorano is gifted with hideaway radio/CD player, electrically adjustable steering-wheel column and dual-zone climate control as well as a key with integrated volumetric anti-theft device and motion sensors.
Just like any Ferrari model, the new Ferrari 599 GTB Fiorano could be further customized using a wide array of personalization options, covering four major areas: Racing and Track, Exteriors and Colors, Interior and Materials, Equipment and Travel. Racing and Track options offered for the new Ferrari 599 GTB Fiorano cover four-point harnesses, a cockpit roll-bar, Carbon Ceramic Material (CCM) brakes and 20-inch Challenge one-piece wheels wrapped in run-flat tires.
Racing and Track options also include Scuderia wheel arch shields and colored brake calipers. On the other hand, Interior and Materials options cover a special carbon-fiber trim kit for the door panels, gear stick surround, sill kick panels and instrument panel, as well as a new Enzo-inspired carbon-fiber steering wheel with LED rev display. Interior and Materials options also include an array of different types of leather trim choices for the seats and interior. Meanwhile, Travel and Equipment options cover iPod-friendly set-up, satellite anti-theft system and front and rear parking sensors. An exclusive luggage set is also included.
