Ferrariā€™s 575 Superamerica was immediately set apart by its Revocromico rotating hardtop, the first of its kind ever fitted to a production car. It was constructed using a carbon fiber frame integrated with electrochromic glass; when the top was closed, the opacity of the glass could be adjusted via a dial in the cabin, allowing the driver and passenger to experience the full brightness of a conventional sunroof at its lightest setting or just 1% of available light at its darkest. Further, the Superamerica could be transformed into a convertible at the touch of a button, with the roof rotating back to rest flush with the rear deck in just 10 seconds. Combined with the potent drivetrain of the 575M Maranello beneath, it made for a formidable sports car for all occasions and weather, that was true to the storied spirit of the Superamerica name.

The Superamerica offered here was specified from Miller Motorcars of Greenwich, Connecticut, by the renowned supercar collector Michael Fux. It was desirably finished in the beautiful and striking livery of Rosso Fiorano, a very rare shade, over a Crema leather interior, with Daytona-style seats piped and stitched in Bordeaux, yellow-painted brake calipers, and the HGTC package. Perhaps the single most desirable option for the Superamerica, the HGTC package consists of carbon ceramic brakes with racing-specification pads and calipers, 19-inch rims, a lowered suspension, titanium racing exhausts, and faster calibration for the steering rack, adding more performance to an already capable supercar.

Acquired by the present owner from Mr. Fux in 2015, the Superamerica has been carefully maintained in his climate-controlled private collection, and remains in superb, virtually as-new condition throughout, with only 1,639 actual miles recorded at the time of cataloguing. The Revocromico top shows no delamination, and still retracts and erects as designed; further its electrocromic tinting still adjusts properly. It is accompanied by its original books, complete tool set, and keys, as well as service records from its present ownership. Freshly serviced in preparation for sale, including fitment of an NOS replacement emergency brake handle, it ranks among the finest and most beautiful Superamericas to be found on the market.
