    Yes i remember. What do you know so far about it??


    Re: 599 "Superamerica"

    I'm told it will be more of a Barchetta version and won't feature a folding roof like the Superamerica. Other than that details are still sketchy.

    I had been told to same about that car, and that it was a limited production......and that the next ''scuderia'' will have a sequential gearbox and not DSG

    Re: 599 "Superamerica"

    Could this be the 599 convertible?

    To clear up the confusion once and for all, soft-top or hardtop ? 

    I wonder if the 458 would looks better as a coupe or a spider...Smiley


    Re: 599 "Superamerica"

    All the inside info thus far suggests the spider is going to be a folding hardtop.

    Re: 599 "Superamerica"

    Seems to me that Ferrari is not really appreciating the States? All the half-hearted models are named after a reference to the USA, where all their nice models are named after Italian references :-S

    Re: 599 "Superamerica"

    Ferrari today unveiled the new SA Aperta – the long-awaited Ferrari 599 roadster. It's a limited edition and just 80 will be built globally, one for each of the years styling house Pininfarina's been in business.

    This explains the Ferrari SA Aperta name: the SA part of the badge honours Sergio and Andrea Pininfarina, whose company has a long history of designing the most beautiful Ferraris. Aperta means open in Italian, signifying the baked bean tin opener has been deployed in Modena.

    Ferrari SA Aperta in detail

    The Ferrari SA Aperta will be unveiled formally at the 2010 Paris motor show on 30 September, where the full spec will be announced. We know the 599's regular V12 will be carried over – and now there's no roof, all 661bhp should be extremely audible.

    There is a temporary soft-top roof 'to be resorted to only if the weather gets particularly bad,' says Ferrari. That speaks volumes about the likely hot climates where the SA Aperta will end up.

    What else is different from the basic Ferrari 599?

    The SA Aperta has a lower ride height, while two roll bars are integrated into the rear deck to provide protection in the untimely event of a rollover. Those safety hoops are designed to mimic the shape of the seats, say the men from Maranello, and they flow down into stately flying buttresses.

    Ferrari claims the chassis is as stiff as the berlinetta's and says the weight penalty is 'negligible'. No hard figures available yet to back this up.

    Price is put at 'more than €400,000'. So the most expensive Ferrari currently on sale then.

     Fabulous, but I'd take the GTO any day!

    FERRARI RULES!!!

    Re: 599 "Superamerica"

    I just don't understand how Ferrari pulls these beautiful designs off every single time.

    Their work is a work of Art and beautiful sculpture, unreal.

    Same here  Smiley

    So far, the GTO is best of so called Limited Edition Ferraris. The 16M and 612 60th both were very mediocre.


    Re: 599 "Superamerica"

    The 16M is anything but limited

    The plaque on the dash reading 1 of 499 would be closer to the true figure if the word "of" were removed and the remaining numerical figures were moved closer together  Smiley  Smiley

    This is such an interesting picture as it shows the challenges to make the rear panel´s and fin´s curvature match each other. In fact, it doesn´t... Smiley

    Still, Ferrari is one of the few brands that can pull this off and have nobody complain about it. The only other one I remember is Mercedes with its comparatively poor interior materials every now and then.
