The exclusive Ferrari Sergio arrived in Abu Dhabi today to be delivered to its new owner, the SBH Royal Auto Gallery.

The car, just one of six in the world, was unveiled at the Finali Mondiali Ferrari race which took place at the Yas Marina Circuit.

The Sergio is designed by Pininfarina to celebrate the 60th anniversary of the Cambiano company.

“The Ferrari Sergio is a genuinely radical car. It is both exclusive and spare in the sense that every single element aboard is focused entirely on performance,” the company said in a statement.

The car is based on the 458 Spider and is powered by the latest 606hp V8 engine, with a 0-100km/h in just 3 seconds.

The vehicle delivered to Abu Dhabi has three-layer red exterior paintwork, black upholstery with red stitching, and Sergio-specific forged wheels with a diamond finish.

Ferrari was also set to unveil its first hybrid supercar - the FXX K - at the Yas Marina Circuit this weekend.

The FXX K is capable of pumping out 1,050 horsepower from a conventional V12 engine, which delivers 860 horsepower, and 190 horsepower from an electric motor.

It is based on the €1 million (Dh4.5m) LaFerrari hybrid. The car maker will build just a few dozen of the model, which may cost about €2.5m each, Bloomberg News reported.
