Ferrari boss Luca di Montezemolo made the comments last night in London, stating that the new model would have a, “very romantic name.” In other words, it won’t be called the 599 Convertible or Spider, but rather something more along the lines of the 575 Superamerica.
That model featured a hard top that popped out from behind the passenger compartment. It also got a horsepower boost to ensure performance was no less than the coupe model. That being said, an open top 599 could boast as much as 640-hp.
We’ll be sure to bring you more on the new model with live coverage from the Pebble Beach Concours on August 15th.
