Ferrari SA Aperta: exclusive first drive
TopGear magazine goes supersonic in the perfect playboy hypercar
Posted: 19 Apr 2011
Fraud. A small and pernicious little word that loops irritatingly – in various sing-song phrases – through my head as we drive through the chocolate-box Italian Riviera in a bright red, roofless Ferrari SA Aperta. A scene so perfect it should include a glamorous sequin-sheathed supermodel, a casino, kittens peeping cutely from a wellington boot and possibly the retching sound of someone choking on a cliché. Seriously, this couldn’t be more perfect. The pastel shades of the jumbled seaside houses, the livid greens and blues of the twinkly ocean, the warming thrust of spring sunshine straight through the middle of your chest and into your soul.
