Based on the Ferrari 458 Spider, the Ferrari Sergio was initially previewed as a concept car back in the 2013 Geneva Motor Show. Thanks to its positive reaction it received, Ferrari has given the green light for a very limited run!
Under the hood, the Ferrari Sergio shares the same powerplant from the Ferrari 458 Speciale, which is a 4.5 L V8 capable of 597 bhp. The V8 can propel the Ferrari Sergio from standstill to 100 km/h in just 3 seconds. As for the interior, it remains largely similar to the 458 Spider, but with black leather upholstery with red stitching. The seats feature Alcantara inserts and carbon inserts on the dashboard.
Pininfarina chief designer Fabio Filippini said, “We asked Ferrari before even drawing the car if we could do it and Luca di Montezemolo said we had all of his support. We decided it should be a mid-engined Ferrari because the first Sergio Ferrari was the Dino Berlinetta Speciale, the ancestor of all mid-engined Ferraris.”
All 6 units of the Ferrari Sergio has been sold, and is said to cost around £2.5m (RM 13.6m before any tax, excise duty). Designed by Pininfarina, the final assembly will be at Cambiano, Italy. But the name, ‘Sergio’? Really?
