Home / Automotive / Cars / Video: Clay Pigeon Shooting And Wicked Donuts In A Ferrari 599 Sa Aperta!


When trap or skeet shooting at a shooting range, your feet are placed on the ground and your body stationary. Why? Because it’s terribly hard and dangerous to shoot clay pigeons if you’re, say, doing donuts in a Ferrari 599 SA Aperta.

Of course, this means someone on the internet has gone out, hopped in one of Ferrari’s most exclusive models ever created and actually shot clay pigeons from a 599 SA Aperta while doing donuts.


The person behind the gun? Philip Thorrold – one of the world’s top shooters and a professional shooting coach. He clearly has experience in the matter.

This exclusive Ferrari featured here, was revealed back at the 2010 Paris Motor Show as the convertible version of the 6.0-liter V12-powered 599. Before it even hit showroom floors, the car was already sold out. It generated quite a bit of buzz back in 2010 and there were many factors that contributed to its rise.

First of all, Ferrari only created 80 examples of the car, making it more exclusive than almost any other model they’ve created. In fact, this makes the 599 SA Aperta even more exclusive than the LaFerrari, which Ferrari created 499 examples of. Secondly, this model was created to celebrate designers Sergio and Andrea Pininfarina, hence the “SA” in the model’s name.
