Following on to the uniquely colored Ferrari F575M featured on Saturday, here is a rare variant of that much celebrated V12 Ferrari, the Superamerica. This was an opened roof variant of sorts, with a glass roof that rotated at 180 degrees. The roof also employed electrochromic technology, allowing passengers to adjust the transparency of the roof panel. Ferrari made 599 of these cars and as a result, they typically bring a more princely sum on the used market than their hardtop siblings. This Superamerica for sale in California is lightly used with a little over 6,000 miles on the clock

The Ferrari Superamerica, designed by Pininfarina, combines the 12-cylinder berlinetta performance we expect from Ferrari with a very original and innovative take on the convertible concept. It is the first production car to have an innovative rotating roof movement combined with electrochronmic technology which was developed exclisively for glass surfaces with these dimensions by Saint Gobain. This roof concept, patented by Fioravanti allows the Superamerica driver to drop the top electrically in 10 seconds flat, which mades it the world's fastest convertible berlinetta (320Km/h top speed). The Fioravanti-patented rotating roof concept allows the Superamerica driver to electrically drop the top in 10 seconds flat, making it the world’s fastest convertible berlinetta (320 Km/h top speed).
The Superamerica was originally derived from the 575 Maranello and is available with either an F1-style or manual gearbox. The 12-cyl engine has been boosted to deliver 540 hp. Maurizio Parlato, president of Ferrari North America in 2005, announced at the New York Auto Show that 559 Superamericas would be built - 175 of them will be designated for the United States, and as expected they all sold out.
