while it made its first official appearance during the geneva international motor show in 2013 as a windowless roadster, ferrari has officially brought the sergio concept to life as a limited edition production vehicle. designed by pininfarina, just six have been built. the two-seater is based on the 458 spider, created to celebrate the legend of sergio pininfarina and the spirit of the italian coach building company in a 60th anniversary collaboration with the prancing horse.

powered by the latest 605 horspower version of ferrari’s naturally aspirated V8 power unit, the authentic open-top sprints from 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) in just 3.0 seconds. in regards to its exterior styling, both volumes and treatments of its surfaces reflect the spirt of pininfarina’s 1960s and 70s creations for ferrari. its proportions have been refined to the extreme; the front of the car seems to penetrate the rear which projects itself forward. the two bodyshell masses are joined together via a longitudinal black insert – the main styling cue of the design. the flank is also characterized by the same component, which acts as both a dividing and unifying element between front and rear.

as with all ferraris, the sergio’s design is a marriage of function and aesthetics. the semi-floating development of the front spoiler beneath the hood balances downforce and optimizes heat exchange. the roll-bar was conceived as a modern take on the classic ‘ferrari flying buttress’ and negative rear window. integrated into the roll-bars are the air intakes for clutch and gearbox oil cooling.

 

at the front of the car, pininfarina has integrated the headlights in a unique manner, turning them into a single transparent unit, a signature of the car’s formal purity. at the rear, the circular tail lights are another modern nod to ferrari history. a two-tone theme continues on both the front hood and rear deck featuring the company’s trademark circular air vents from previous pininfarina classics.

the cockpit is stripped-down ith the engine compartment actually hugging the backs of the seats. as expected from ferrari, black leather upholstery is outfitted throughout the interior with contrasting red stitching, alcantara seat inserts, and extensive carbon dash and door well trim. it also features gold sergio-specific forged wheels, with a diamond finish.
