At this year’s Villa d’Este Concorso d’Eleganza, Ferrari is going to unveil the Superamerica 45, a unique one-off model.
The Superamerica 45 was styled by Ferrari Design and engineered and built-in house. The car was comissioned by collector Peter Kalikow to celebrate 45 years since he first became a Ferrari client. The design is bespoke, featuring a carbon-fibre rotating hard-top which incorporates a rear screen. The boot is entirely new to house the roof when open, and is now in carbon-fibre with a design optimised to reduce drag and increase rear downforce.
The Superamerica 45 is painted in an exclusive Blu Antille, a color that matches another important car in the client’s collection – a 1961 400 Superamerica cabriolet. The wheels are body-colored with a contrasting diamond finish to the spokes. The roof and other carbon-fiber elements of the bodywork – front splitter, side skirts and rear diffuser – are in a special contrasting darker blue, a theme that is carried over to the cockpit which features dark blue carbon-fibre dash trim and driver zone.
