Footnotes

  • In 2004, Ferrari released a limited run of 559 examples of a striking and innovative convertible version of the 575M: the Superamerica. Introduced in 2002, the 575M (Modificata) was an evolution of the acclaimed 550 Maranello. Styled by Pininfarina like its illustrious 'Daytona' predecessor, the 550 Maranello was similarly proportioned, adopting the classical combination of long bonnet, small cabin and truncated tail. Styling details such as the bonnet air scoop and hot air outlets behind the front wheelarches recalled the great competizione Ferraris of the past, in particular the immortal 250 GTO, while the tail incorporated Ferrari's characteristic twin circular lights.

    Drawing its name from the iconic Pininfarina-designed Lampredi V12-powered GT cars of the 1950s and '60s, the Superamerica retained the 575M's 5,748cc engine, six-speed gearbox, and running gear together with its general design while featuring a unique pivoting photo-chromic roof. The work of Pininfarina's chief stylist Leonardo Fioravanti, creator of the legendary 365 GTB/4 'Daytona', it was the first roof of its kind ever fitted to a production car and was built using a carbon fibre frame integrated with electro-chromic glass. The transparency of the glass could be adjusted from within the cabin to transmit varying amounts of light, letting in approximately the same amount of light as a conventional glass sunroof at its lightest setting and only 1% of the sun's rays at its darkest. With the press of a button, the Superamerica can be transformed into a convertible, with the roof rotating back to rest flush with the boot lid in just 10 seconds.

    Finished in Nero Daytona with matching leather interior, this stunning Superamerica was supplied new via Graypaul Nottingham to Howard Walker of Preston on 31 February 2005. Its late owner purchased the car from Graypaul Nottingham in June 2007 at 1,449 miles.

    The Ferrari was serviced by Graypaul in 2006 and there are a further seven services recorded, the most recent being by M D Allen in 2017 at 21,858 miles. (The current odometer reading is 22,086 miles.) A sports exhaust system was fitted 2008 and the Superamerica comes complete with its leather wallet; full book pack; and a file of old MoTs and most service bills accumulated during the deceased's ownership.

    The Superamerica has become one of the most highly coveted Ferraris of recent times thanks to its rarity, uniquely innovative design, and the exhilarating driving experience that can only be had behind the wheel of one of these modern Ferrari V12 roadsters. An opportunity not to be missed.
