The Car is without the Title and VIN number , for export, you get a bill of sale. The Porsche 550 is one of the most beautiful sports cars in the world. Unfortunately, the real cars are pushing $3.5 million plus and it also doesn’t help that there are less than 90 produced. I have always loved these cars. Many companies have made replicas over the years. Beck Spyder is a very popular replica using a fiberglass body. In the last 5 years there have been companies that will make the cars out of aluminum and even install a 4 cam engine as an option.

This rare Ferrari 575 Superamerica is 1 of 550 built. Enzo Ferrari believed that there should always be one fewer car available than what the market demanded. What made the Superamerica different was the use of an electrochromic glass panel roof which rotated 180 degrees at the rear to lie flat over the boot. This is a 4 owner car and has only 14,968 miles. It is not a 6 speed manual car but an F1 gear box car. I would think the manual cars command a premium to this one. I have only seen one in person and that was at Pebble Beach. Unfortunately, I did not get to see the owner retract the top.
The Superamerica used 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). The GTC handling package was optional.
The Cayman GT4 is a hot commodity these days. Dealers are all charging a hefty mark up to get one now. You may be able to find one at sticker price but doubtful. The MSRP starts at $84,600 US Dollars. My friend was lucky enough to get one in Chicago when the person in front of him on the waiting list dropped out. He was lucky enough to get it form a dealer that did not mark up the car. This was 6 months ago.
