In 2005 Ferrari introduced a final version of the front-engine 575M, itself an extension of the 550 Maranello that debuted nine years earlier. Commemorating the manufacturer’s 50th anniversary of selling cars in the United States, the new model was dubbed the 575 Superamerica, evoking the name used on the vintage 340 America and 410 Superamerica models.

The most significant aspect of the new Superamerica was its convertible design, which consisted of an unusual rear-hinged glass roof that rotated 180-degrees to an open position, lying flush with the rear deck lid. Patented by Pininfarina designer Leonardo Fioravanti, the so-called Revochromico roof was punctuated with the use of new adjustable-tint technology.

This minimally driven 575 Superamerica is desirably optioned and has been recently serviced, resulting in a stellar example of the premium modern Ferrari. Built in November 2005, chassis 145724 was finished in an elegant color combination of Silverstone over a nero leather interior. It is believed to be one of relatively few Superamerica examples that were equipped with the Fiorano Handling Package, a desirable group of performance options that included a re-mapped suspension (with lowered, stiffer springs, adjusted camber and toe, and a stabilizer bar), upgraded brake pads, and a more performance-oriented power-steering governing chip. The car was also equipped with yellow-painted brake calipers, Scuderia Ferrari fender shields, monochromatic Daytona-style seats with grigio chiaro stitching, interior carbon fiber trim, a yellow tachometer face, a premium audio system with six-CD changer, and F1 transmission.

After being delivered in January 2006, this 575 appears to have lived a pampered life, accruing very little mileage while receiving attention at various authorized Ferrari dealers. Acquired more recently by the consignor, the Superamerica was treated to a round of servicing by the respected Illinois marque dealer Continental AutoSports. In addition to performing an annual service, Continental fixed a minor issue with the transmission and replaced the Revochromico roof with a correct new factory unit (a $41,000 part!).

Also the recipient of a full cosmetic detailing, this exquisite Superamerica now shows 1,747 miles and displays commensurate showroom quality. It is one of only 559 examples built worldwide and would make an elegant complement to any collection of Ferraris or convertibles, offering forward-thinking tifosi a modern collectible that can be shown and enjoyed.


Addendum
