FERRARI 599 SA APERTA – A 661-HORSEPOWER SALUTE TO PININFARINA

Ferrari’s 599 SA Aperta was an extra-special version of the 599 GTO , itself a special version of the 599 GTB Fiorano. So, yeah, this is a special car. The new-for-2010 model was created in celebration of the 80th anniversary of Ferrari’s partnership with Pininfarina. If you were wondering, “SA” comes from combining the initials of designers Sergio and Andrea Pininfarina, founder Battista’s son and grandson, respectively.

For the SA, Ferrari used the 661 horsepower V12 from the GTO. Same goes for the drivetrain and gearbox. That’s why, even though it is technically a convertible, or “Aperta,” version of the 599 GTB, I think of it more as an open-top GTO. Whether it’s more GTB or GTO, though, the SA Aperta has a style of its own; fitting for a Pininfarina tribute. New designs grace the grille as well as the front bumper, while new carbon fibre side sills sit between SA-specific 20-inch rims. Aside from the open top, the most distinctive features of the SA are the silver-finished flying buttresses.

Out back there is a fresh new design for the rear bumper and boot lid. Heck, even the interior has been updated from the base 599. Owners are given an “emergency roof” to strap on in case of rain. With an 80 mph limt, this roof is not meant for flat-out driving, but for slinking back to your garage after the weather turns south. If you’d rather not bother with the finnicky top, it is good to know that the seats are water resistant. To give drivers an extra treat, the SA Aperta was fitted with an especially vociferous exhaust, much like the unit from the 599XX.
