Ferrari revealed that the first of six production ‘Sergio’ had been delivered to its owner at the recent Finali Mondiali event in Abu Dhabi. The Sergio, is Ferrari’s tribute to its ongoing relationship with Pininfarina Design. Named for the late Sergio Pininfarina, the concept was created to honor his memory on the 60th anniversary of the iconic studio’s long-standing partnership with Ferrari.
The Sergio takes styling cues from the Pininfarina show cars of the 1960s and 70s. This can be seen in the rear treatment, with its cut-off ‘Kamm’ tail and round tail lights and the transparent bar linking the headlights. It is a throwback to the original Ferrari Dino show car.
Underneath the retro body the cars is all 458 Spider, retaining that wonderful car’s ‘technological content’ and all the ‘functional aspects of its cockpit’ these include the Speciale A’s 4.5-litre V8, which produces 605bhp. “A marriage of function and aesthetics”, says Ferrari.
“The result is an exceptionally sculptural, three-dimensional take on the classic roadster,” says Ferrari.
The car in these pictures was bought by the SBH Royal Auto Gallery in Abu Dhabi’s Yas Marina, which is where the Finali Mondiali Ferrari are being held. Alas all six cars are already sold, and each has been configured by its owner in a personal visit to the Tailor Made studio at the factory in Maranello with their personal choice of color and materials.
