Ferrari P540 Superfast Aperta

Today Ferrari revealed their second car to come from the Special Projects program. This supercar is a 599-based, one-of designed from the bottom up as a Spyder. Named Apera, it is also a modern recreation of a long forgotten Ferrari.

Aperta is based off a rare show car that was built by Fantuzzi for a 1968 film directed by Federico Fellini. In it was 4381SA, a Ferrari 330 LMB converted into a striking spyder. Painted gold and black, it was a star of the film and became a footnote in Ferrari history. When Edward Walson saw 4381SA in the 1968 film, he had Ferrari make a modern interpretation called the P540 Superfast Aperta.
