Launched at the 2010 Paris Motor Show the Ferrari SA Aperta is effectively an open-top 599 GTO supercar. Just 80 cars were built world-wide with just 8 RHD cars coming to the United Kingdom.
The SA name represents design firm Pininfarina – whose 80th birthday this car celebrates. The father and son team of Sergio and Andrea’s initials are used. Aperta translates as Italian for ‘opened’.
The Aperta boasts the 599’s usual front-engine/rear wheel drive layout, with the uprated GTO engine, a 6-litre V12 with 661bhp and 457lb ft of torque and a 0-62 mph time of just 3.6 seconds. The Aperta has a lowered ride height of 10mm over the standard 599, a thicker rear anti-roll bar and recalibrated magnetic dampers. A reinforced body shell makes up for the loss in stiffness due to the lack of roof structure.
Recently acquired by JD Classics directly from its one and only owner, this extremely rare UK supplied RHD Aperta has covered just 82 miles from new. The Aperta has been fully serviced in accordance with the annual maintenance schedule a total of 4 times at the supplying dealer.
Letters on file from Ferrari include a personal wish to congratulate the new owner from then Ferrari Chairman Luca di Montezemolo. The supplying Ferrari dealer also writes to confirm this SA Aperta as the last car to be registered and delivered.
