Ferrari will introduce the convertible version of the 599 GTB Fiorano in Paris.

Maranello has not yielded to the current trend of retractable roof, nor did it re-visit the experience of the photochromic roof of the 575 Superamerica.

In the the desire for maximum aerodynamic efficiency the Ferrari engineers chose the option of a single soft top. This convertible version certainly retains the perfect flowing lines of the original 599 GTB Fiorano coupe. Under the bonnet there lurks the same 670hp V12 from the 599 GTO.

Dubbed SA 599 (a tribute to Sergio and Andrea Pininfarina) Aperta ('open' in Italian). The planned production of 80 examples is already sold out!
