After the success of the Ferrari 550, the spiritual successor to the 365 GTB/4 ‘Daytona’, Ferrari realised that there would be a market for a convertible version of the car. The resulting car was the limited-edition 550 Barchetta Pininfarina. The Barchetta was mechanically identical to its hardtop sibling, and it was intended to be a pure roadster, offering the same feeling as Ferrari’s earlier Barchetta models. For the convertible variant of the 550’s replacement, the 575 Maranello, the factory responded to customers’ calls for a more usable top in dramatic fashion, creating a brand-new convertible top system that offered the freedom of the Barchetta with the practicality and security of the Berlinetta. The resulting car was the 575 Superamerica. Undoubtedly the most interesting part of the car was its Revochromico rotating hardtop. It was the first roof of its kind ever fitted to a production car, and it was built using a carbon-fibre frame that was integrated with electrochromatic glass. The transparency of the glass could be adjusted from within the cabin to allow varying amounts of light in, letting roughly the same amount of light in as a conventional glass sunroof at its lightest setting and only 1% of the sun’s rays through 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. Ferrari chose to produce just 559 examples, and every car was spoken for within weeks of its announcement.

This, UK-supplied Superamerica has formed part of a number of significant UK collections over the years with the V5 showing five owners and, naturally, it was lightly used. It's finished in Grigio Silverstone (740) over Pelle Nera (A8500) and has an impeccable Ferrari dealer service history.

The indicated mileage is just short of 6,500 and, prior to the auction, it will have a service at Ferrari Birmingham and an MOT to perpetuate all the MOTs from new. Most importantly, it’s Classiche Certified and comes with the Red Book, complete owners manuals and the tool kit. The cherished registration, GT07 FER, will remain with the car. 

Having covered such low mileage, the bodywork is hard to fault with gleaming paintwork and flawless panel fit. The interior looks almost new and the engine bay presents beautifully. The carbon framed folding hard top operates smoothly and without fault. In general, the condition of this Ferrari can be best described as commensurate with a very well cared for and treasured example.

When it was first launched to the press in 2005, this exclusive model was described by Evo Magazine as: "A mouth watering prospect... with a boost in power to 533bhp, the Superamerica is a much more serious attempt at an open V12-engined Ferrari than the completely roofless and poorly executed 550 Barchetta. It promises to bring a new dimension to the heavy-hitting thrills of the 575M Maranello without sacrificing too much in rigidity and real-world usability." This example is certainly no exception and is supplied with its original hand book, service book, leather wallet, tools, old MOTs and the Classiche Certificate. Prospective buyers are encouraged to contact the office for further information or to arrange a viewing.
