Ferrari will unveil its fastest convertible ever at Pebble Beach this year.
JENS MEINERS, ILLUSTRATION BY CHRISTIAN SCHULTE AND MARK NEEPER

An open Ferrari is among the classic dream cars, especially when it’s powered by a high-revving V-12, and the iconic manufacturer is about to launch another one. Ferrari is expected to unveil the new model, based on the 599GTB Fiorano, at the Pebble Beach Concours d'Elegance in mid-August.


Our renderings show a classic, open roadster quite unlike its predecessor, the 575-based Superamerica, which sported an unusual, Fioravanti-designed glass top. That roof was hinged at the B-pillars and flipped 180 degrees to settle on top of the trunk. The 599-based roadster, by contrast, is expected to be equipped with a metal folding hardtop of a more conventional type, similar to that of the V-8–powered Ferrari California.
