Unique supercar Ferrari Sergio will be sold at auction

The American auction house Gooding & Company will put up for sale a unique supercar Ferrari Sergio, prepared by the Italian bodybuilder Pininfarina. It is estimated that between $ 2.5 and $ 3 million will be earned for a rare car.

For the first time such a car became known in 2013, when Pininfarina presented the eponymous concept car at the Geneva Motor Show. A year later, the Italians presented a small-scale version of the supercar, released in honor of automotive designer Sergio Pininfarina, who died in 2012.

The basis of Sergio lay the platform of the supercar Ferrari 458 Speciale Aperta, which at the time of its release was the most powerful and fastest open car of the Italian brand.

At the same time, Sergio was equipped with a modified 4.5-liter supercharged V8 engine, the output of which was increased from 570 to 605 horsepower. The motor is combined with a seven-speed robotic gearbox with two clutches. The supercar is able to accelerate from zero to the first “hundred” in three seconds, and its maximum speed was 320 km per hour.

In total, six such cars were produced. In 2017, one of the yellow and black supercars was sold in the Netherlands for $ 5.6 million.
