The Ferrari 599 SA Aperta Is Still A Million-Dollar Affair

Ferrari makes convertibles. It also makes front-engined V12 GTs. Seldom does it combine the two, but when it does, the results are often highly sought-after among collectors.

One of the most recent of those rare twelve-cylinder roadsters to come roaring out the gates in Maranello was the 599 SA Aperta. Essentially an open-air version of the 599 GTO, the SA Aperta was limited to just 80 examples. And one has come up for sale in Spain.

Listed on James Edition by Magna Supercars SL, this red on red example has just 3,107 miles (5,000 kilometers) on the clock. And like any other, it packs a 6.0-liter naturally aspirated V12. In this application, it produces 661 horsepower (670 ps/493 kW) and 460 lb-ft (620 Nm) of torque – the same as the fixed-roof GTO version.

What’s particularly caught our attention with this one is its asking price. It’s listed for €869,900 – or about $1.07 million at current exchange rates. Seem a little over-the-top? Think again: RM Sotheby’s sold one of the same just last year for €1.17 million ($1.4m) and another the year before for $1.2m. In fact, the same dealer was asking €1.1 million ($1.3m) for this very same example less than a year ago, dropping the price significantly since – but still keeping it (in dollar terms) above the seven-figure mark.

The 599 SA Aperta was the successor to the 575M Superamerica (of which 559 examples were made) and the 550 Barchetta Pininfarina before it (with just 448 made). The F12-based F60 America that followed was limited to just ten examples, exclusively sold in the United States to celebrate the marque’s six decades in one of the company’s most important markets.

We’ve yet to see a similar roadster to be based on the new 812 Superfast. But when we do, you can bet it will be a highly exclusive – and highly coveted – addition to Ferrari’s history.
