The exclusive and unmistakably Pininfarina-designed SuperAmerica is named after a very famous series of limited edition 12-cylinder models built by Ferrari between 1956 and 1961. In line with this illustrious past, the new Superamerica is also a limited edition car.
1 of only 559 examples ever produced, of which only 63 were right-hand drive. This limited production car made its debut in 2005 and was sold with a V12, 533hp engine capable of 199 mph top speed with Ferrari marketing as the fastest convertible in the world. The result is a car that combines all of the prestige and allure of a drop-top with the functional advantages of a coupé. The Superamerica was also the world’s fastest Convertible-Berlinetta with a top speed of 199 mph.
The true masterpiece of this car was its special `Revochromic` roof, designed by the Italian design house of Fioravanti, which rotated 180 degrees on a single pivot axis to lie flush on the boot so that the car’s boot capacity is unaffected whether the top is up or down, making this Ferrari coupe-convertible one of the most original. It takes just 10 seconds to transform this stylish coupe to a gorgeous convertible. The roof construction is made from carbon fibre and glass. The window does not stow away but functions as a windbreaker when the roof is down. In fact, in addition to this innovative opening, the electrochromic glass roof can be controllable by the occupants to vary the brightness in five degrees via a control located on the dashboard.
The 575 SuperAmerica offers a very useable 'modern-classic' Ferrari GT that is both powerful, elegant and comfortable. Mechanically the 575 has a reputation for excellent reliability when maintained correctly, so you wouldn’t hesitate, given the opportunity, turn the key and enjoy the sight and sound of one of Maranello’s finest open top GTs howling through mountain passes.

BACKGROUND AND HISTORY:
In 1996, Ferrari introduced the 550 Maranello in a bid to revive their fabled line of grand tourers, and the 550 quickly proved to be an overwhelming success. Six years later, in 2002, the 575M Maranello appeared bringing with it a host of healthy updates adding additional potency to an already incredible car. Increasing the displacement of the V-12 by 250 cubic centimetres to 5748 cc, resulted in 508bhp and 434lb/ft of torque, 0-60 in 4.2 seconds and an advertised top speed of 202 mph. The front end was slightly revised with newer headlights, a redesigned air intake and front spoiler, and the weight distribution was improved to 50/50. Two six-speed transmissions were available – a conventional manual gearbox and, for the first time on a Ferrari V12, Magneti Marelli’s semi-automatic (electro-hydraulic manual) ‘F1’ gearbox. Further mechanical improvements included bigger brakes and an adaptive suspension set-up (the four independent suspension units are also controlled by the gearbox, to minimise pitch throughout the 200-milliseconds gear shift time). Inside, the interior was modernised and refreshed with an updated dashboard, trim, and steering wheel.
Introduced in 2005, the Ferrari 575M Superamerica is a convertible version of the 575 Maranello; it features an electrochromic glass panel roof which rotated 180° at the rear to lie flat over the boot. The patented Revocromico roof incorporates carbon fibre structure that is hinged on a single axis with a luggage compartment lid, allowing the access to the latter even with an open roof.
When the top is closed, the opacity of the glass in the roof can be adjusted via a dial in the cabin. The driver and passenger can either experience the full brightness of a conventional sunroof at its lightest setting, or 1% of available light at its darkest. Furthermore, the Superamerica can be transformed into a convertible at just a press of a button, with the roof rotating back to rest flush with the boot lid in just 10 seconds, leaving the rear window in place to function as a wind deflector. Of course, this does not obstruct luggage capacity, and the Superamerica’s boot swallows up more than enough luggage for two on a weekend getaway with the top up or down.
With the roof open the rear window, apart for holding the third stop light, also acts as a wind deflector. This roof design was previously used on the 2001 Vola concept designed by Leonardo Fioravanti. The Superamerica uses the higher-output tune of the V-12 engine, F133 G, rated at 533 HP (397 kw; 540 PS) and Ferrari marketed it as the world’s fastest convertible, with a top speed of 199 mph (320 km/h)! A total of 559 Ferrari Superamericas were built; this number followed Enzo Ferrari’s philosophy that there should always be one fewer car available than what the market demanded.
