After a first rumor and a render it’s time to see the real deal. A Ferrari 599 Roadster has been caught testing in Maranello.

So, why do we think this is the successor of the 575M Superamerica? If you take a close look at the image, you will notice that the top of the A-pillar is taped with a joint for a removable top and the car features a convertible top.

It will most likely carry the V12 engine delivering a total of 670 HP at 8250 rpm with a maximum torque of 620 Nm at 6500 rpm found in the 2011 Ferrari 599 GTO except it will develop an extra 25hp to counteract the added weight of the convertible top.

Like the 575 Superamerica launched in 2005, the new 599 cabrio will be offered in limited numbers. Official debut will be made in August at the Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance in California.

I got a rumor that this car would be the successor of the 458 Italia is it true? BTW, the engine performance of this car is incredible no wonder they always win in the race.

How many variants do we need of this car? Well I’m interested to see how it’ll look

Well, the 599 isn’t supposed to be a hardcore supercar, like a Scuderia so I don’t see what’s wrong with making a convertible version, then again, it’s actually a good idea. A much like the SLR McLaren Roadster, best of both worlds

It seems Ferrari 599 Roadster is ready to launch. Well, am expecting a new roof mechanism, but I think it will very likely feature a retractable hard-top.

I agree, with the hard top and 599 weight has added some 20-25 pounds. With that, the engine is needed to add some more horses to counter the weight.

I tought it too, that tape is for mounting the top. Also the performance of the 599 is just the same as the GTO except for the 25Hp for the weight.

Cool, 2 car in one. Impressive. I bet this is much more fun to drive than the ferarri maranello.

An excellent edition to the world’s second-best GT car and what will become the world’s greatest GT roadster should Lexus never release the LFA convertible concept shown a few years ago.
