Ferrari’s North American head Marco Mattiachi hand-picked potential buyers to come down and check out the new model and made them sign non-disclosure agreements. Those who were invited had to leave their cell phones and digital camera at the door before they could be in the presence of the Ferrari 599 Roadster.

Power for the Ferrari 599 Roadster will come from the same 661-hp 6.0L V12 used in the 599 GTO. Sales are expected to start next summer and only a 100 exclusive examples will be produced.
