GTspirit are at the Geneva Motor Show 2015 where the beautiful production spec 2015 Ferrari Sergio has been showcased on its designer stand. When Pininfarina first launched an incredibly bold and futuristic concept car, no one imagined it would make it to the production line but the concept travelled the globe
Two years later we were told that the car would indeed go into production, with Pininfarina taking a Ferrari 458 Spider and creating the glorious machine we see before us today. What is remarkable is just how similar the final product is to the concept – although only six examples will be built, to order for Ferrari’s closest and most valued customers.
All six of these collecters’ cars have been delivered. The very first example was delivered to the SBH Royal Auto Gallery in the UAE and featured a three-layer red exterior as well as black leather and red contrast stitching throughout the interior. Additionally, the customer ordered the specific Sergio forged wheels finished in gold. All six examples were configured by the customers in dedicated sessions with Ferrari’s Tailor Made program in Maranello.
Stylistically, the Ferrari Sergio for Pininfarina now features a windscreen, a higher nose to pass pedestrian protection regulations as well as normal doors. Additionally, the interesting decklid of the original concept has been modified but is equally as eye-catching. Elsewhere, the headlights and tail lights are brand new for the production car.
The Sergio is based around the Ferrari 458 Spider but uses the more powerful engine from the 458 Speciale A. This engine displaces 4.5 litres from its screaming, naturally-aspirated eight cylinders and consequently pumps out 597 hp which is enough to send the special Sergio model to 100 km/h in a mere three seconds. Because the car is based around the 458 Spider, the interior has gone essentially unchanged.
