Ferrari SA APERTA, the drop-top version of the 599 is one of the most exclusive Ferrari models built in a one-time limited-edition production run. This super sports car receives further power amplification through Novitec Rosso performance enhancement program. The newly tuned Ferrari SA APERTA features a 218-hp increase in output power, new set of lightweight forged wheels, sport springs, and a stainless-steel high-performance exhaust system with butterfly valve.

Novitec Rosso provides a twin-supercharger conversion for the SA APERTA enabling the output power of the 6.0L four-valve V12 engine to jumps from standard 670 to 888 hp at 8,400 rpm and boosts maximum torque from 242 to 862 Nm at 6,600 rpm. Mated to F1 Superfast 6-speed transmission, SA APERTA can sprints from 0-62 mph in just 3.1 seconds with a top speed of 211 mph.

The conversion also includes a large water-to-air intercooler with dedicated water circuit; remapped engine system and NOVITEC ROSSO stainless-steel exhaust system with four 90mm black-coated tailpipes. With the push on a button, the driver can change the exhaust note through the electronically controlled butterfly valve.

For the exterior design, SA APERTA gets GTO-style front spoiler lip, side skirts, rear fascia, and a set of Novitec Rosso black lamps which include the tail lamps, third brake light, rear fog lamp and side markers.

SA APERTA rides on a set of NOVITEC ROSSO extremely lightweight forged wheels 21-inch at the front (10.4 kilograms) and 22-inch at the back (13.8 kilograms) wrapped in Pirelli PZero tires with sizes 295/25 ZR 21 on the front axle and in size 335/25 ZR 22 in back.

The wheels are complemented with the custom-developed Novitec Rosso sport springs which can lower the ride height by up to 25 mm. The suspension can be optionally fitted with a front axle lift system which can raise the front by 40 mm. and helps avoid obstacles such as underground parking ramps or speed bumps without beaching the front spoiler.

NOVITEC ROSSO also offers exclusive interior appointments in any desired color or upholstery design for the drop-top Ferrari.
