Ferrari revealed the final version of the front-engine 575M in
2005, itself an extension of the 550 Maranello that debuted nine
years earlier. Commemorating the manufacturer's 50th anniversary of
selling cars in the U.S., the new model was dubbed simply the
Superamerica, evoking the name used on the vintage 340 America and
410 Superamerica models.
The most intriguing feature of the new Superamerica was its unique
convertible design, which consisted of an unusual rear-hinged glass
roof that rotated 180-degrees to an open position, lying flush with
the rear deck lid. Patented by Pininfarina designer Leonardo
Fioravanti, the so-called Revochromico roof was punctuated with the
use of new adjustable-tint technology.
Driven sparingly, this Superamerica is desirably optioned and is a
superb example of the premium modern Ferrari. This example, chassis
145711, was finished in an elegant color combination of Argento
N�rburgring over a Cuoio leather interior. It is believed to be one
of relatively few Superamerica examples that were equipped with the
Fiorano Handling Package, a desirable group of performance options
that included a re-mapped suspension featuring lowered, stiffer
springs, adjusted camber and toe, and a stabilizer bar; upgraded
brake pads; and a more performance-oriented power-steering
governing chip. The car was also equipped with red-painted brake
calipers, Scuderia Ferrari fender shields, monochromatic
Daytona-style seats with Grigio Chiaro stitching, rear wall leather
upholstery in matching Cuoio, a yellow-faced tachometer, a premium
audio system with six-CD changer, and the F1 paddle-shift
This Superamerica appears to have lived a pampered life, accruing
very little mileage while receiving meticulous care. The recipient
of a full cosmetic detailing, this exquisite Superamerica now shows
less than 3,500 miles and is in exceptional condition throughout.
It is one of only 559 examples built worldwide and one of only 170
examples designated for the U.S. market during its one-year
availability, presenting an exciting opportunity to acquire a
modern-day and extremely exclusive Ferrari.
