The 2005 Ferrari 575M Pininfarina-designed Superamerica combines Ferrari 12-cylinder berlinetta performance with a highly original, innovative take on the convertible concept. Derived from the 575M Maranello, the Superamerica is available with either an F1-style or manual gearbox. Its big 12-cylinder engine has been boosted to deliver 540 hp. The new car can also be fitted with the GTC Handling package which offers Ferrari's very latest high-tech features including carbon ceramic brakes by Brembo.
The Superamerica version was a limited run of 559, an odd production number, but followed Enzo Ferrari's philosophy "that there should always be one fewer car available than what the market is demanding". It was marketed by Ferrari as the world's fastest convertible, with top speed of 199 mph.
The Superamerica came with an electrochromic glass panel roof that was capable of rotating 180° to the rear to lay flat over the trunk. Electrochromic glass means that the driver can completely control the level of light entering the cockpit. There are five tint levels available and the glass can go from dark to light in under a minute, at the touch of a button.
