6 Ferrari Sergio Supercars to be Made

Pininfarina Styled Speciale 458 A

Coincident with the delivery of the first of six cars, Ferrari has shared more information on the Sergio, an ultra-exclusive supercar based on the Ferrari 458 Speciale A. The Ferrari Sergio was styled by Pininfarina and honors the eponymous Italian stylist who helped cement a partnership between Ferrari and Pininfarina.

The Ferrari Pininfarina Sergio was first shown as a concept at the 2013 Geneva auto show. Now that it's headed for production, its styling has been toned down a little from that wild show car. Still, the convertible's bodywork has been significantly revised, giving the Ferrari a lower, wider nose; a new front splitter; contrasting black-and-red paintwork; gold wheels; and a restyled rump with round taillights located in teardrop-shaped black housings. Ferrari says the new bodywork was all meant to reference classic Ferrari and Pininfarina designs from the 1960s and 1970s, giving an "exceptionally sculptural, three-dimensional take on the classic roadster." There are still many modern touches, though: That big front splitter both directs cooling air to the brakes and provides aerodynamic downforce, while vents in the roll bars behind the two seats channel air to the transmission oil cooler.

The simple interior stays a little truer to a standard Ferrari 458 Speciale A, with this particular customer car benefitting from Alcantara and leather upholstery, red stitching, and extensive carbon-fiber interior trim. However, all Ferrari Sergio customers get to personalize every aspect of the car's design at the company's Tailor Made workshop in Italy.

Motivation comes from a 4.5-liter V-8 sending 596 hp to the rear wheels, enough to send the Ferrari Sergio to 62 mph in just 3.0 seconds -- identical figures to the Ferrari 458 Speciale A on which the limited-run Sergio is based. Unfortunately, we don't expect many of the six examples to see track time, or even much hard driving on the road. Given the cars' exclusivity, most will likely be tucked away in museums or private collections. The car pictured here, for instance, is headed to the SBH Royal Auto Gallery in the United Arab Emirates.
