Ferrari Sergio: The ultra rare supercar you can’t buy

Even if you have all the love and money in the world, there’s no chance you are getting your mitts on the ultra-rare Ferrari Sergio. Now scram.

Just six have been built, according to Road and Track, and all have owners. The hypercar was built to honour the passing of Sergio Pinninfarina who passed away in 2012, and was unveiled at the 2013 Geneva Auto Show.

It is based on the Ferrari 458 Spyder – although you would be hard-pressed to know tell just by looking at it. For one thing, it looks nothing like a 458. In fact, from certain angles it looks backwards. Oh, and Ferrari forgot to put a roof on it, which was just silly.

The engine is borrowed from the 458 Spyder so power comes from a 4.5-litre V8. 0 to 62mph is said to take 3.4 seconds and the top speed is 200mph, which is more than fast enough for a car that lacks a windshield. Remember to bring a hat and goggles.

The last limited edition was the Ferrari F60America, which was built to celebrate sixty years of Ferrari in North America. Sources believe that particular prancing horse sold for US$2.5 million and 10 were built. It’s likely the Sergio cost even more, seeing as it’s even rarer and argubly more special.

Not that money matters because Ferrari invited people with deep pockets to buy it long before it was announced. So all you can do is hope to see one on the road or track down one of the six buyers and make the an offer they can’t refuse.
