Marketed by Ferrari at the time as the world’s fastest convertible car, the Superamerica’s blend of stunning speed, elegant design, and a specially designed retractable hardtop makes it one of the finest convertible coupes ever offered by Ferrari. The Superamerica’s patented Revocromico hardtop uses carbon fiber and special electrochromic glass; at the flick of a switch, the roof panel rotates out of the way for open-air driving. In coupe form with the roof in place, the panel’s transparency can also be adjusted between its lightest clear and darkest opaque settings.

Based on the drivetrain of the 575M Maranello, the Superamerica boasted a higher-output version of Ferrari’s then-flagship 5.7-liter V-12. By modifying the flow rate of the intake tracts and relieving back pressure in the exhaust system, the updated engine produced 532 horsepower at 7,250 rpm, while torque remained an impressive 434 pound-feet at 5,250 rpm. Upon opening the hood, the car shows off its large Rosso Corsa–colored intake covers adorned by the famed prancing horse on top of its ever-so-imposing V-12.

This 2005 Ferrari Superamerica left the factory finished in Grigio Silverstone over Bordeaux Leather with deviated grey stitching; Grigio Chiaro accents provide eye-catching contrast to the luxuriously appointed interior. Factory options included F1-style six-speed, semi-automatic transmission with paddle-shift, the desirable “Fiorano” Handling Package, a hi-fi sound system with six-disc CD changer, and the carbon fiber interior package. The chosen Daytona-style seats are reminiscent of those found in the original 365 GTB/4 Daytona, a sign of true Ferrari connoisseurship. A Rosso-faced tachometer sets itself apart from the rest of the instrumentation, guaranteed to draw the driver’s attention. Outside, yellow Scuderia shields adorn the exterior just ahead of the doors, while red brake calipers neatly hide behind the three-piece 19-inch modular wheels.

This Ferrari Superamerica, one of only 559 examples produced, has enjoyed a life of limited and careful use; at the time of cataloguing, its odometer showed only 12,871 miles. Notable work lavished on the car includes, at a cost said to be over $100,000, the replacement of the model's signature rotating hardtop, as well as a recent timing belt service completed March 2022 by Azael Motorsport of Doral, Florida. A selection of invoices, as well as tool kit and owner’s manuals, accompany the sale.

Updating the classic Ferrari front-engine V-12 formula with modern power and an advanced convertible top mechanism, this Superamerica would make for a thrilling and stylish addition to one’s stable.
