The new drop top is named in honor of Sergio and Andrea PininFarina, longtime designers of many of Ferrari’s famous sports cars. The 80 models are being produced to mark the 80th anniversary of the celebrated builders.
According to a Ferrari release:
“The SA Apera is a true roadster which allows its occupants to enjoy the superlative emotions afforded by our signature front-engine V12 architecture in a completely open-top setting. In fact, it has just a light soft top designed to be resorted to only if the weather gets particularly bad.”
The roadster has a low-profile windscreen and crouches lower to the ground, and has “exceptionally aerodynamic sleekness,” according to the Maranello, Italy, manufacturer.
