An Italian-delivery Superamerica
One of only 559 examples produced
Finished in Blue Tour de France over Beige

Looking to create a slightly different experience than the 550 Barchetta, the 575 Superamerica offered a unique solution and added practicality to the 575 Maranello’s open-top sibling. Developed specifically for the 575 Superamerica, the Revochromico rotating hardtop achieved Ferrari’s goals of both usability and uniqueness. Featuring a carbon fibre frame integrated with electrochromic glass, it also provided the security of a conventional soft top when in place. Furthermore, the opacity of the Superamerica’s roof can be adjusted via a dial in the cabin to provide the occupants with varying degrees of sunlight—from the full transparency of a traditional sunroof to only allowing in one percent of the available light.
Delivered new to its native Italy, this 575 Superamerica was sold to its first owner in Milan in January 2016 through Rossocorsa S.R.L. Finished in the very desirable colour combination of Blue Tour de France (FER. 522) over Beige (4208), the car was also fitted with silver brake callipers, a yellow tachometer, and Daytona-style seat inserts. The Ferrari is believed to have remained in Italy from new and received a 10,000 kilometre service by Rossocorsa S.R.L. in February of 2007. Today, it presents well throughout and would surely make a wonderful driver, finished in a subtle, yet dignified colour combination.
Designed to offer customers additional practicality and usability thanks to its unique Revochromico hardtop, the 575 Superamerica also succeeded in becoming an instant collectable, thanks to not only the uniqueness of its roof, but also to its low production, beautiful styling, exciting performance, and overall practicality.
