What you see before you is a 60th anniversary celebration of a wonderful collaboration.
Ferrari and Pininfarina have been creating beautiful cars together for six decades and the Ferrari Sergio is here to remind us of that. Limited to just six examples and based off the 458 Spider, it’s powered by the latest version of Ferrari’s 597 horsepower 4.5-liter V8. Originally introduced as a concept at the 2013 Geneva Motor Show to commemorate the death of Pininfarina founder, Sergio Pininfarina, the Ferrari Sergio’s styling traits reflect the spirit of the design firm’s 1960s and 70s creations.
Compared to the standard 458 Spider, the Sergio’s proportions have been pushed to the extreme with the front of the car seeming to penetrate the rear with itself projects forward. The two bodyshell masses are melded together via a longitudinal black insert, the main styling cue of the design. The rear end is also characterized by the same black longitudinal elements which acts as both a dividing and unifying element between front and rear. The semi-floating development of the front spoiler beneath the hood balances downforce and optimizes heat exchange. The roll-bar is a modern take on the classic Ferrari flying buttress and negative rear window.
The interior has been given black leather upholstery with red stitching, a carbon dashboard and door trim, and Alcantara seat inserts. Each of the six Sergios was configured by its owner. Yes, each Sergio has been spoken for and the first one has just been delivered to its owner in the United Arab Emirates. Official pricing wasn’t announced but it’s rumored to cost well over $1 million.
