We love it when car manufacturers do crazy things, especially when it’s Ferrari. Few are better at coming up with concepts that achieve the desirable without edging into the ridiculous, and in the Pininfarina it has (just about) done it again.
The car is named “Sergio”, after the man who led Pininfarina for 40 years and was responsible for some of the greatest car legends. It’s a two-seat barchetta based on the Ferrari 458 Spider mechanicals and calls tribute to the iconicity of 1960s Ferraris despite looking like the sort of thing you’d be cruising around in 2060.
Want the numbers? You’ll find a 4499cc V8 with a maximum speed of 200mph and 0-60 in just over 3 seconds, but this really isn’t the sort of thing you’ll want to drive fast and risk missing envious glances. The good news is that it’s a legitimate vehicle that can be produced to a road-legal standard, and can easily be rolled out in a limited series of units for real people to drive. The bad news is that you’re very unlikely to be one of them.
