From the initial Sagittario prototype, Sergio Stefanutti subsequently developed the Sagittario II, which made its maiden flight on 19 May 1956. Powered by a Rolls-Royce Derwent 9 turbojet, this more advanced aircraft was virtually a new design and of all-metal construction and built by Aerfer. The Sagittario II was the first aircraft of Italian design to exceed Mach unity when it reached Mach 1.1 in a dive on 4 December 1956.
