Superamerica is a storied name. Ridiculous, yes, but storied. The first Ferrari to bear the name was built in 1956, and for 8 years it was Italy’s flagship sports car, built to be driven by the world’s elite. It wasn’t until 2005 that the nameplate was resurrected for a convertible version of the 575M Maranello.
This 2005 575M Superamerica F1A is one of only 559 ever built. Enzo Ferrari believed that whatever the market demanded, you should build one fewer car than what would satisfy it. Already a rare find, once this car is sold, there will be one fewer available on the market today. It’s currently on offer in our Pre-Owned Inventory but probably won’t be here long. Where are you?
2005 Ferrari Superamerica was Built to be Unique
The 2005 Superamerica has a front-mounted 5.8L V12 engine that makes 508 horsepower and 434 lb.-ft. of torque. On this model, it’s paired with an electrohydraulic F1 transmission. Its maximum speed exceeds 200 miles per hour, and it sprints from naught to 62 in just 4.2 seconds. These figures are impressive, but that’s what you should expect from a Ferrari.
What makes the Superamerica unique is its style. It’s hood feels miles long, and the arc from the windshield to the rear of the vehicle is gentle. The car we have for sale is dressed in Nero black paint, with Nero black Power Daytona seats on the inside.
The roof is not like any convertible you’ve ever ridden in. Rather than folding back into the trunk, the Superamerica’s patented Revocromico roof rotates 180 degrees on an axis to lie flat over the rear of the vehicle, with the rear window remaining to act as a wind guard. The roof is also made of electrochromic glass, which allows the driver to adjust the level of tint with the push of a button. Features like this are what make a Ferrari exotic.
Used 2005 Ferrari 575M Superamerica in Pristine Condition
You’ll be pleased to find this black 2005 Superamerica has been very well taken care of. The clutch has just over 70% remaining, and the 5-year belt service was completed in June 2012. A full service visit was performed in May 2015, and both of these were done at a Ferrari Service Facility in Southern California. Best of all, the car has only been driven 4,590 miles during its previous ownership.
Again, this is a one-of-a-kind Ferrari that doesn’t turn up for sale often. Get in touch with us at Maserati Auto Gallery Beverly Hills for a detailed vehicle history and the current asking price. A member of our staff will be happy to show you this vehicle, or any other car in our inventory, during your next visit to our showroom.
