Ferrari-Sergio-01

Hello, Sergio! The first Ferrari Sergio has arrived in the United Arab Emirates – specifically Abu Dhabi’s Yas Marina Circuit, where the Finali Mondiali Ferrari event is being held now – to be delivered to its owner, the SBH Royal Auto Gallery.

Designed by Pininfarina and named after the late Sergio Pininfarina, just six units of this limited edition roadster are being built, and all are accounted for by invited collectors. No need to ask how much.

First previewed as a concept at Geneva 2013 and confirmed for production in October this year, the 458 Spider-based car was created to celebrate the spirit and core values of the historic Cambiano company in the 60th anniversary year of its collaboration with the Prancing Horse. With 605 hp from a 4.5 litre V8 engine, the Sergio does the 0-100 km/h sprint in just three seconds.

Ferrari says that the Sergio reflects the spirt of Pininfarina’s 1960s and 70s creations for the brand. Its proportions have been pushed to the extreme with the front of the car seeming to penetrate the rear, which itself projects forward. The two bodyshell masses are melded together via a longitudinal black insert, the main styling cue of the design. The flank is also characterised by the same black element.

Up front, Pininfarina has integrated the headlights in a classic single transparent element. The two-tone theme continues on both the front bonnet and rear deck with the latter featuring the iconic circular air vents seen on Pininfarina creations from the past.

The Sergio delivered to Abu Dhabi has three-layer red exterior paintwork and black leather with red stitching inside, Alcantara seat inserts and carbon on the dash and doors. It also boasts Sergio-specific forged wheels, in this instance gold in colour with a diamond finish. Each of the six Sergios was configured by its owner in dedicated sessions at the Tailor Made atelier in Maranello.
