2005 Ferrari 575 Superamerica in Connecticut

 

2005 Ferrari 575 Superamerica

Location: Connecticut F1 Gear Box Odometer: 14,968 Miles 4 Owner Car
Price $450,000 US Dollars
  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.
