The one-off Ferrari Superamerica 45 has shown its face in the US at the Cavallino Classics 2012 event in Palm Beach last weekend. The sports car was build for Peter Kalikow, a Ferrari collector from New York, to celebrate that he’s a Ferrari client and driver for 45 years. The Ferrari Superamerica 45 is styled internally by Ferrari Design and engineered and built in-house.
The Ferrari Superamerica 45 is based on the Ferrari 599 GTB Fiorano. The design is bespoke, featuring a carbon fiber rotating hard-top which incorporates a rear screen like on the Ferrari 575 Superamerica. The boot is entirely new to house the roof when open, and is now in carbon fiber with a design optimised to reduce drag and increase rear downforce.
