Unveiled at the LA and Detroit Auto Shows in 2003, the Superamerica is a 'targa' version of the, then current, 575M. It was also the first Ferrari to feature a motorised and folding hard top. The name Superamerica extends back into Ferrari's history as a name that was given to the most exclusive and powerful luxury models.

Derived from the 575M Maranello, the Superamerica big 12-cylinder engine was boosted to deliver 540 bhp through the six-speed electro-hydraulic F-1 transmission. Independent front and rear suspension with coil springs, telescopic shock absorbers with adaptive damping and anti-roll bars, combined to keep the fastest convertible of the time on the road.

Designed by Fioravanti, the flip-top roof is made of translucent materials, which adjust to vary the amount of light coming into the cockpit. Called Revocromico by Ferrari, the system has five tint levels available and the glass can go from dark to light in under a minute. As the frame for the glass is made from very strong carbon fibre, the Super America can reach very high speeds with the top in the up or reclined position. Performance figures were seriously impressive with 0-100 kph coming up in 4.2 seconds and a top speed of 320 kph or 199 mph. A total of 559 Superamericas were built; this number followed Enzo Ferrari's philosophy that there should always be one fewer car available than the market demanded.

We are delighted to offer this left-hand drive 575M Superamerica for public sale for the first time in its life. Sold new to the first and only private owner on 31st January 2006 in Zurich, Switzerland, it was supplied by official Ferrari dealer Garage Foitek AG. Servicing was carried out by the supplying dealer on two occasions in 2007 and 2013 at 16,137 kilometres. The total mileage is now reading just 17,461 kilometres or 10,850 miles. Finished in the very rare factory special order colour of Bianco Fuji with Rosso leather interior, this Ferrari certainly stands out from the crowd.

Having covered such low mileage, the bodywork is hard to fault with gleaming paintwork and flawless panel fit. The interior looks almost new and the engine bay presents beautifully. The carbon framed folding hard top operates smoothly and without fault. In general, the condition of this Ferrari can be best described as commensurate with a very well cared for and treasured example.

When it was first launched to the press in 2005, this exclusive model was described by Evo Magazine as: "A mouthwatering prospect... With a boost in power to 533bhp, the Superamerica is a much more serious attempt at an open V12-engined Ferrari than the completely roofless and poorly executed 550 Barchetta. It promises to bring a new dimension to the heavy-hitting thrills of the 575M Maranello without sacrificing too much in rigidity and real-world usability." This example is certainly no exception and is supplied with its original hand book, service book, leather wallet, tools and MoT certificate. A UK V5C has been applied for and will hopefully be available at the auction for viewing in the history file. All EU taxes have been paid and we welcome all pre-sale inspections. Prospective buyers are encouraged to contact the office for further information or to arrange a viewing.
