In 2005 Ferrari introduced the limited-edition 575 Superamerica. The Superamerica name harkened back to the flagship Ferraris of the 1950s and 1960s, and marked the first time the name had been used since 1964. Penned by Pininfarina, the 575 Superamerica featured a beautiful design with a unique “Revocromico” roof which can rotate away in less than ten seconds. In the down position, the rotating top rests on the rear of the car so as not to compromise trunk storage. The top is made of carbon fiber and electrochromatic glass which allows occupants to adjust the tint in the cabin to their desired level. At the time of its release the 575 Superamerica held the title of the world’s fastest convertible with a top speed of 199-mph.
The 2005 Ferrari 575 Superamerica on offer is presented in the desirable shade of Rosso Corsa. The exterior features Scuderia Ferrari fender shields as well as factory five-spoke wheels which conceal the car’s front and rear carbon ceramic disc brakes. The car is powered by a 5,748-cc, 540-hp V-12 engine which is paired to a six-speed electro-hydraulic F-1 transmission with paddle shifters. The interior is completed in Pelle Beige and looks as though it just left the factory. Accompanying this 575 Superamerica is its Ferrari Classiche report, associated manuals, tool kit, and air pump.
Featuring a very early production number, this 575 Superamerica is believed to be the only the second Superamerica built. According to the information in the Ferrari Classiche report the car was originally delivered in December of 2005 to Ferrari’s North American headquarters in Englewood Cliffs, New Jersey - possibly to promote Ferrari’s new unique offering in the United States. Ferrari produced only 559 examples of the 575 Superamerica which only adds to the rarity of this early production example.
