Production Ferrari Sergio revealed

Only six examples of the Sergio roadster will be produced by Ferrari, and all have already found a buyer. As that name suggests, this limited edition is intended to honour Sergio Pininfarina, son of the founder of the eponymous Italian carozzeria which has designed so many road-going Ferrari models.

Whether it’s a particularly fitting tribute is debateable, though. Trying to force various 1960s and 1970s styling cues onto what is essentially a modified 458 Spider hasn’t yielded a very cohesive result.

The most successful aspect is the nose, thanks to its two-tone bonnet and a dark horizontal element that links the two low-set headlight clusters. Things certainly get more radical along the flanks, where a bold black angular insert visually splits the Sergio’s front and rear sections.

And that segregation is fitting, because the back end is a mishmash of concave surfacing, oddly-shaped light surrounds and a massive diffuser. Unfortunately, every component looks like it belongs on a different car.

At least performance won’t be lacking. With a 4,497 cc V8 engine that develops 596 bhp (445 kW / 605 PS), the Ferrari Sergio can accelerate from rest to 62 mph (100 km/h) in just 3 seconds.
