2005, Superamerica, (HW Special Edition, limited 977/2006, diecast)
The Ferrari Superamerica combines stunning Ferrari 12-cylinder berlinetta performance with a highly original, innovative take on the ever-versatile convertible. The Superamerica is also the very first production car to adopt an innovative rotating roof incorporating electrochromic technology developed exclusively for large glass surfaces, which transforms it from a coupé to a convertible in just a few seconds.
The result is a car that combines all of the prestige and allure of a drop-top with the functional advantages of a coupé. Derived from the 575M Maranello, the Superamerica is available with either an F1-style or manual gearbox, and is fitted with the latest development of the classic V12 engine which now delivers an impressive 540 hp. Thanks to its super-smooth electric rotating roof, the Superamerica is also the world’s fastest convertible berlinetta with a top speed of 199 mph.The exclusive and unmistakably Pininfarina-designed Superamerica is named after a very famous series of limited edition 12-cylinder models built by Ferrari between 1956 and 1961. In line with this illustrious past, the new Superamerica is also a limited edition car.
Interior and exterior styling Styled by Pininfarina, the Superamerica retains the beautifully balanced proportions typical of Ferrari’s V12 berlinettas, cleverly integrating the model’s unique Revocromico roof. This innovative feature blends seamlessly with the car’s lines thanks to the two side buttresses, a styling cue taken from some of Ferrari’s most classic models. The buttresses also provide roll-over protection along with the roof structure itself.
The whole rear section of the car is characterised by the new carbon-fibre boot featuring the Ferrari shield in relief, and was designed to highlight the Superamerica’s muscular yet sensual curves. The unusual roof profile gives the car a firmly sporting stance which is further enhanced by the standard 19″ split rims equipped with Bridgestone Potenza RE050 tyres.
The front of the car is characterised by the new-look aluminium-coloured headlight cluster rims and air intake on the engine compartment.
The Superamerica is just as exclusive inside as out with meticulously handcrafted leather trim and carbon-fibre detailing for the roof switches, the car radio surround and the instrument display. The whole interior is completely transformed by the light flooding in through the large, metre-square glass roof, but this in no way affects the on-board comfort or space.
The Superamerica seats are also trimmed in special perforated leather while on-board storage space has been enhanced, courtesy of a storage compartments as a well as a special closed cabinet behind the seats.
Clients may also opt to have the rev counter in either red or yellow.
