This unique Ferrari 599 SA Aperta is a 661bhp Hermès suitcase
Ferrari (allegedly) produced just 80 599 SA Apertas, essentially a drop-top version of the potent 599 GTO, which goes some way to explain why the few examples offered at auction in the last three years have almost all sold for well over 1m euros — almost double their original list price. But this car currently for sale with Classic Driver dealer Auxietre & Schmidt is extra special. Firstly, it’s finished in Nero Stellato, an especially alluring triple-layer shade that we’ve no doubt cost an arm and a leg to specify. Secondly, and perhaps even more impressively, is the genuine Hermès leather interior, which contrasts spectacularly with the sinister-looking exterior.
It’s had just three owners from new and currently shows 11,500km on its odometer. So, whether you’re planning an extended continental jaunt over the summer, looking to invest in a coveted ‘modern classic’ Ferrari, or simply want to experience that soul-stirring 661bhp V12 in its most pure and unadulterated fashion, then look no further.
