Ferrari has always been a master of the two-seat grand tourer. From its early days wrapping elegant coachwork around its spartan 166 and 212 chassis to modern times with large V12 engines and endless high tech amenities, if you want to cover long distances quickly and in style, Maranello has always had you covered.
The 575M was introduced in 2002 as an update of the smashingly successful 550. While keeping the exterior styling strikingly similar to the 550, the 575 was massively improved in many key areas. For starters, the 575 was given a larger more powerful engine and bigger brakes to help contain the added punch. The suspension was updated as well as the aerodynamics to help round out the package. In 2005, the Superamerica version was introduced as a limited run of 559 retractable hardtop variants of the 575. Along with the sleek and innovative folding mechanism of the hardtop, the power was pumped up to 533hp from the standard 508hp. Ferrari marketed the Superamerica as the worlds fastest convertible, with a claimed top speed of 199mph. The bulk of the 559 Ferrari Superamericas produced were delivered with the six-speed Magneti Marelli Electrohydraulic manual “F1” gearbox, with only 43 being produced with the highly coveted 6-speed manual gearbox. The 575 would be replaced by the 599 in 2006.
This particular Ferrari 575 Superamerica, chassis number ZFFGT61A150143323, is a 2005 model year with 38,684 miles from new and is finished in black (Nero) with black interior. This car was optioned with the highly desirable GTC package (a $21,000 option) as well as ‘Scuderia Ferrari' shields and a high power hi-fi 6 CD changer. Despite the indicated miles, the car presents extremely well and has been maintained and cared for thoroughly. This Superamerica has a clean Carfax showing two previous owners. It was sold new out of Ferrari of Seattle, Washington and spent a bulk of its life there. During its first ownership, this Superamerica had the folding glass top replaced under warranty. There are numerous service records from its time in Seattle until it was offered for sale in January of 2016 with an indicated 35,802 miles on the odometer. The car was then sold to its second owner who resided in California. The second owner had the nose, and rear bumper correctly repainted (receipts present), and a clear bra installed. Both owners maintained fastidious service records during their ownership, all of which are included with the car. The car was always serviced at Ferrari Dealerships or certified shops and the records back this up. The vehicle is being offered with a fresh 30K service just completed, new tires and new factory windshield all of which was just completed by a very reputable shop with records to support the work.
Included with the car are all the factory manuals and books, toolkit, air pump, service records as well as the original window sticker. Please visit www.LBILimited.com for many more photos and details. Worldwide shipping is available upon request. Follow us on Instagram and Facebook at @LBILimited.
