If you have a spare few million floating around and unsure what to spend it on then your in luck, a very rare Ferrari has just become available. The pinnacle of collectability and therefore having only driven 118 kilometres. This particular model is the first of six cars to be produced, and also the first ever Sergio to come to the market.
The Ferrari Sergio is a 458 Italia-based car, inspired by the Ferrari Pininfarina Sergio prototype. The car rolled off the production line back in 2015, but because the final production design was so similar to the original concept, the car does not look dated by any means. The Sergio has been sold to clients scattered around the globe. The first car was sent to the United Arab Emirates, three were sold to collectors in the US, one to Japan, and one to Switzerland. The car that made it to Switzerland is currently the one for sale. The bodywork of this particular car is painted in bright yellow, with yellow callipers and accents all around the car. The interior is doused in carbon and alcantara.
Despite the Sergio being based on the Ferrari 458 Spider, it uses the more powerful engine from the 458 Speciale A. This engine displaces 4.5 litres from its screaming, naturally-aspirated V8, and consequently pumps out 597 hp. That’s enough to send the exquisite Sergio model to 100km/h in a mere three seconds. Because the car is based around the 458 Spider, the interior has gone essentially unchanged. The car was sold to its first owner for approximately $3 million back in 2015. In true Ferrari style the ultra-rare car has appreciated tremendously over merely two and a half years.
The Sergio will be part of a fantastic collectors auction by RM Sotheby’s during September 8-10 to be held in Ferrari’s hometown in Maranello and will gather together the “most valuable and sought-after Ferraris on the planet” on the occasion of the automaker’s 70th anniversary.
