Pininfarina will launch Coachbuilt Ferrari Super America 45 Convertible on May 20 at Villa d’Este

by Alex

Super America 45 is the name of the new coachbuilt Ferrari that is being made by Pininfarina to be showcased at the Concorso d’Eleganza Villa d’Este motor show event in Italy. New York billionaire, real estate tycoon and former owner of the New York Post, Peter Kalikow, who also owns another coachbuilt Ferrari made by Pininfarina, the 612 Kappa is the one who is responsible for the commissioning of this other one-off supercar.

Most of the details of the car are being kept under wraps as of now. Speculation therefore doing the rounds state that the car would be based either on the 599 GTB Fiorano or the 599 GTO. It is also being speculated that the car would be featuring a rotating central-piece roof as that found on the 2005 Ferrari 575 Superamerica. For engine there is probability that it would be a 6.0-liter V12 unit. As the car is being built to customer specification there could be some tuning that would be effected on the engine.

Pininfarnia have also been responsible for making the other coachbuilt 599 which is the Ferrari P540 Superfact Aperta. This one is also owned by an American, Edward Walson. Then there is also the Ferrari SA Aperta which happens to be the convertible version of the 599 GTO. There are only 80 units of the Ferrari SA Aperta that was ever built as Ferrari’s tribute to the famous Italian design house. Also, the SA Aperta is the next best thing to have after the convertible 599. This until the Ferrari Super America 45 comes on to the scene, which is scheduled to take place on May 20th.

The Concorso d’Eleganza Villa d’Este event is to run from May 20 to 22 and other bespoke models that have confirmed their presence at the show are the Audi Quattro Concept, Mercedes-Benz Concept Shooting Break, Infiniti Etherea Concept, Italdesign Giugiaro Go!, Rinspeed Bamboo, Renault DeZir and the Scuderia Cameron Glickenhaus P4/5 racer.

New photos of the Super America 45 are expected soon but until then it is the Ferrari 575 Super America, SA Aperta and P540 Superfast Aperta only that would be seen in photographs.
