Ferrari SA Aperta: exclusive first drive
TopGear magazine goes supersonic in the perfect playboy hypercar
Posted: 19 Apr 2011
It doesn't help that the Ferrari is show-stoppingly arresting. This particular car is slicked in triple-layer paint so deep that it makes you want to lick it, and the clearcoat lounges so liquidly on the Aperta's bodywork that you fear it may slide right off. It's like an old-fashioned hot-rod candy colour, lacquered to triple dimensions. It adorns a car designed and produced to celebrate the 80th anniversary of styling house Pininfarina (Sergio and Andrea is the ‘SA' bit; ‘Aperta' means ‘open' in Italian).
