Ferrari pays tribute to Sergio Pininfarina with limited-edition supercar
After releasing the first images and details of the very limited supercar last December, Ferrari has officially debuted the Sergio at this year's Geneva Motor Show. Designed to pay tribute to Sergio Pininfarina who led the design firm and coach-building company for 40 years, the Sergio is heavily based on the Ferrari 458 Italia and is limited to six units.
From the front, the open-top automobile features thin headlights and a front spoiler that provides better aerodynamics and heat exchange. The hood features two-tone red and black finish and compared to the original concept that only had two helmets, the production version is fitted with a windscreen for safety measures.
The rear is reminiscent of the original 458 Italia but features an altered diffuser, dual exhaust pipes, a ventilated engine cover and oblong-shaped taillight trims. A set of Sergio-specific forged alloy wheels finished in gold complete the exterior eye candy of the limited-run supercar.
The interior is upholstered in leather while the seats feature Alcantara inserts. It also has carbon fiber trim, body-color stitching and a flat-bottom steering wheel.
Providing power for the Sergio is a 4.5-liter V8 engine that puts out 613 PS which enables the car to go from 0 – 100 km/h in 3 seconds.
All six units made by the Italian automaker have already been sold to customers.
