Ferrari Sergio arrives to the UAE
The first Ferrari Sergio has landed in the United Arab Emirates and has been delivered to its owner, the SBH Royal Auto Gallery, at Abu Dhabi’s Yas Marina Circuit. Designed by Pininfarina, just six of these limited edition roadster are being built. Needless to say, Sergio was the obvious choice of name for the model, in homage to the great Sergio Pininfarina, who sealed the partnership with Ferrari.
Based on the 458 Spider, the Ferrari Sergio is powered by the latest 605 horsepower version of Ferrari’s naturally aspirated V8 engine. This power unit also guarantees the car sprints from 0 to 100 km/h in just 3 seconds!
Design wise, the front spoiler beneath the bonnet balances downforce and optimises heat exchange, while the roll-bar is a modern take on the classic Ferrari flying buttress and negative rear window. At the rear, the circular tail lights are another modern nod to Ferrari history. The two-tone theme continues on both the front bonnet and rear deck, with the latter featuring the circular air vents seen on other iconic Pininfarina creations from the past.
Each one of the six Ferrari Sergios were configured by its owner, in dedicated sessions at the Tailor Made atelier in Maranello. The example delivered to Abu Dhabi has a three-layered red exterior and black leather upholstery with contrasting red stitching, Alcantara seat inserts, and extensive use of carbon on the dash and door trim.
What about prices you ask? Let’s just say they’re better left unknown…
