Ferrari 599 convertible revealed

The all-new Ferrari 599 GTB Fiorano convertible is to be revealed in August, but our computer-generated image shows how it could look.

Ferrari has confirmed that the V12 roadster will make its first appearance at the US Pebble Beach Concours d'Elegance this August.

The car is a flip-top, rather than a drop-top, with a roof that pivots back over the rear window, just like the Ferrari 575 Superamerica.

It is thought the open-top 599 will have a metal roof, unlike the Revocromico glass roof of the Superamerica, which owners can turn from transparent to tinted at the flick of a switch. In keeping with the Superamerica, however, the 599 is expected to get a new name and be produced in limited numbers.

The list price is likely to be around 250,000, so you'll need extremely deep pockets if you want to get sunburnt in this car.
