Ferrari SA Aperta (599 Roadster): official details, photos and specs

Ferrari revealed today the SA Aperta also known as the 599 Roadster, a new car which will take the centre stage at the 2010 Paris Motor Show later this month. Built in a limited edition of just 80 units, Ferrari chose to build the SA Aperta in celebration of Pininfarina's 80th anniversary. SA comes from Sergio and Andrea Pininfarina, whose company have been linked to the most successful road-going cars ever built at Maranello.

The bad news is that the new car has already been sold, because you may have know it already: the car had a private unveiling in August at the 2010 Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance. The front-engined V12 sports car comes in a completely open-top setting, still Ferrari offers a light soft top designed to be resorted to only if the weather gets particularly bad.

Furthermore, the chassis of the car has been redesigned in order to deliver a standard of stiffness comparable to that of a closed berlinetta (coupe) and there is a negligible weight difference. Under the hood, the V12 from the recently unveiled Ferrari 599 GTO, delivers 670 hp and an impressive 620 Nm at 6500 rpm. Inside, the car features particularly sophisticated materials, trim and colours.
