At this year’s Paris Motor Show, Ferrari took the wraps off its special 599 SA Aperta, the open-air version of the 599 GTB Fiorano. All 80 production units are already spoken for by Ferrari’s most revered clientele, but that hasn’t stopped the Italian supercar maker from teasing us by revealing all five of the car’s available color and trim configurations.
For those unfamiliar with the SA Aperta, the latest variant of the 599 is built to honor Pininfarina’s 80th anniversary, hence the 80 production cars. The car features a true open-air driving experience with a lower, reshaped windshield, twin roll hoops integrated into the rear buttresses, and a removable fabric top, should an owner happen to face a bit of rain. Other parts are cribbed from the remainder of the 599 range -- most of the bodywork is borrowed from a stock 599, but the engine is the same 670 horsepower, 6.7-liter V-12 from the 599 GTO.
That engine alone is enough to make your neighbors turn green -- but interestingly, green doesn’t appear to be a shade offered on the 599 SA Aperta. According to Ferrari’s online configurator, the open-air 599 is available in five different color combinations, including black, blue, yellow, a deep red, and a burnt orange.
Regardless of the hue, each car will sport the same chrome shadow-style rims, along with an aluminum-trimmed windshield surround, mirror caps, and rear buttresses. That’s where the similarities end, however, as each color receives unique brake caliper paint, along with bespoke interior accents. For instance, selecting a black exterior hue adds a light brown interior with black accents, cashmere-colored stitching, and bright red brake calipers. A red SA Aperta, however, receives a full black interior with red trim and white stitching, an off-white dashboard, and black brake calipers.
