The first of six Ferrari Sergio limited edition cars has been delivered to its new home at the SBH Royal Auto Gallery in the United Arab Emirates.
Based on the Ferrari 458 Spider, the Sergio features a body that’s been redesigned by styling house Pininfarina to celebrate the 60 year working relationship between the two companies.
According to house of the prancing horse, the “volumes and treatments of [the Sergio’s] surfaces reflect the spirt of Pininfarina’s 1960s and 70s creations for Ferrari“.
At the front, the Sergio features thin horizontal headlights, as opposed to the 458’s vertically stacked configuration, underneath which is a floating front spoiler. The rear section bears a closer resemblance to the donor vehicle, although practically everything from the roll over bar to the rear fascia has been reshaped.
The bonnet, doors, windshield frame, sills, engine cover, front spoiler and rear diffuser are all finished in contrasting matte black. The wing mirrors have also been redesigned to stand on thinner plinths.
Only six Ferrari Sergios will be built, and each has been customised by its owner. The one delivered to the UAE’s Royal Auto Gallery features bright red stitching across the cabin, which matches the car’s three-layer exterior coat of red. It also features plenty of carbon fibre in the cabin, as well as Alcantara inserts for the seats and door trims.
The car’s name honours Sergio Pininfarina, who helped to kick off the long collaboration between Ferrari and Pininfarina, not Sergio Marchionne, current head of Fiat Chrysler.
Located behind the driver and passenger is the same 4.5-litre V8 that’s used in the Speciale A. With 445kW of power and 540Nm of torque at its disposal, the Sergio can rocket from 0-100km/h in three seconds flat.
