The Ferrari P540 Superfast Aperta is a one-off front mid-engined, rear-wheel drive sports car produced by the Italian sports car manufacturer Ferrari, based on the Ferrari 599 GTB Fiorano.

Edward Walson commissioned the car in 2008, asking Ferrari to build a modern interpretation of the gold covered Carrozzeria Fantuzzi-designed Ferrari built for the film Toby Damnit. This car represents the second car in Ferrari's Special Project program.

The P540 was revealed to the public on December 11, 2009, but had been spotted in spy shots several months previous to this.<ref name="">Template:Citation/core{{#if:|}}</ref>

See Wikicars' comprehensive Ferrari P540 Superfast Aperta Review.


Designed by Pininfarina and built in Maranello, this car was designed to homologate with international safety and homologation requirements. Using finite element analysis and carbon fibre, the car's chassis was stiffened for the conversion to a convertible body style. Total time of development was 14 months.
