In December, Ferrari started rolling out production models of one of its hottest design studies in decades, the Ferrari Pininfarina Sergio. And that’s saying a lot considering the pedigree of automobiles that have been born out of the Italian brand. First unveiled at the Geneva Motor Show in 2013, the Sergio is well on its way to becoming one of the most coveted Ferraris ever. Here are ten reasons why—along with photos of the production model and concept vehicle that inspired the final design.
Production of the Ferrari Pininfarina Sergio was limited to only six cars, making it one of the most exclusive automobiles in the world.
Although the Sergio is built on the same bones as the Ferrari 458 Italia, some of the car’s design elements have been pushed to the extreme to distinguish it from its stablemate.
The highly exclusive Ferrari pays homage to the late Italian car designer Sergio Pininfarina, an icon in the world of automobiles.
The Ferrari Sergio was inspired by racecars of the ’60s and ’70s, which gives the limited-edition new roadster a cool nostalgic appeal as well.
Equipped with a 605-horsepower, 4.5-liter V8, the Sergio roadster will shoot from O to 60 mph in 3 seconds.
Even with the addition of more functional design elements like the windshield, the production model of the Ferrari Sergio still maintains the striking appeal of the concept.
The Sergio caps a significant milestone for Ferrari and Pininfarina with 2014 marking the 60-year anniversary of the two companies’ ongoing relationship.
Although there has been no official word on the pricing of the new Ferrari, it’s rumored that the production model cost around $2 million.
All six people who have taken ownership of the limited-edition Sergio were handpicked by the Italian automaker.
The six Sergio buyers were able to add personal touches to their car during design sessions at the Ferrari design studio in Maranello. Here’s hoping at least one guy sprang for hydraulics!
