2006 Ferrari 575 Superamerica HGTC… UK RHD
The Ferrari 550 Maranello marked the return of a front engine, rear wheel drive, 2-seater V12, 23 years after the Ferrari 365 GTB/4 Daytona’s production ended. In 2002, Ferrari replaced the 550 Maranello with the updated 575M Maranello; in terms of appearance this meant minor styling improvements by Pininfarina, a renewed interior and new wheels.
The most significant changes being mechanically with an increase in displacement to 5.75 litres, larger brake discs, better weight distribution, improved aerodynamics and an adaptive suspension working in conjunction with the newly offered F1 semi-automatic gearbox, which shifted in as fast as 200 milliseconds. All of the above resulting in 515 hp, a top speed of 199 mph and a 0-62 mph launch in 4.2 seconds.
The Ferrari 575 Superamerica was introduced in 2005 with an innovative rotating roof featuring an electrochromic glass panel housed by a carbon fibre roof structure. This being a first in a production vehicle, where the roof rotates 180° in 10 seconds when opened and lies flat over the boot. Patented as Revocromico, the roof hinges on a single axis with the boot lid and allows access to the luggage compartment even with the roof open. The opacity of the roof was also adjustable by a dial in the cabin, allowing full brightness in its lightest setting or 1% in its darkest setting.
Mechanically, the Ferrari 575 Superamerica received an engine tune to 540 hp, and thanks to the latter, was the world’s fastest convertible at the time. Production was limited to 559 units and the name derived from the iconic Ferrari 400 and 410 Superamerica’s built between 1956 and 1964.
