Ferrari Expected to Unveil 599 Roadster at Pebble Beach
The Ferrari 599 has only been in production for about four years now, but it has already spawned a seemingly endless array of derivatives: the original GTB Fiorano, the track-focused 599XX, the all-conquering GTO, the tweaked HGTE, the China limited edition, the one-of-a-kind P540 Superfast Aptera and the HY-KERS concept. But before the model is replaced altogether, Ferrari is anticipated to unveil one last version at the Pebble Beach Concours d'Elegance this coming August.
Following in the footsteps of the 550 Barchetta Pininfarina and the 575M Superamerica, the 599 convertible will be a limited edition at the top of the Ferrari range. We'll have to wait and see what kind of convertible roof mechanism the always innovative sportscar-maker employs for the exclusive roadster, but the company's chairman Luca di Montezemolo says it will carry an "emotional, romantic name such as Italia or Fiorano".
