U Spot: Notice Anything Different About this Ferrari…GT Aperta?

Carscoop reader Jonathan Y. emailed us these pictures of a Ferrari SA Aperta with a few styling twists that he snapped in Switzerland.

Jonathan tells us that the Italian roadster looked original but featured some differences over the regular model including a ‘GT Aperta’ logo finished in black at the rear end of the car.

Revealed at the 2010 Paris Motor Show, the standard SA Aperta is a roadster version of the Ferrari 599 GTB Fiorano equipped with the 599 GTO coupe’s more potent 6.0-liter V12 producing an output of 661hp (670PS) and a peak torque of 620Nm (457 lb-ft).

It was designed in celebration of Pininfarina’s 80th anniversary and only 80 examples were built.

If you compare the photos of the unmodified SA Aperta with the GT Aperta nabbed by Jonathan, you will spot some differences.

These include select parts from the 599 GTO coupe’s armory such as the gunmetal grey alloy wheels, the front bumper with a black lip spoiler and honeycomb style grille, the black side skirts, and the modified rear bumper with side air outlets.

This particular model also gets gunmetal grey roll bars, a black or carbon fiber boot lid spoiler and twin (instead of single) air outlets on the front wings.

While we can’t be 100 percent sure, we believe that this “GT Aperta” was created as part of Ferrari’s individualization program upon customer request.
