559 Ferrari will be produced 575 Superamerica

The Superamerica will be introduced at the Detroit Auto Show. Designed by Pininfarina, this is a car combining the performance of Ferrariís twelve-cylinder Berlinetta with a highly original interpretation of the convertible concept.

This is the first production car to use an innovative mechanism for rotating roof movement combined with electrochromic technology developed exclusively with Saint Gobain for glass surfaces of this size and debuting here.

The unique concept of the roof (patented by Fioravanti) allows the driver to drop the top on the car electrically in just 10 seconds. The Superamerica is the fastest convertible berlinetta in the world with a top speed of 200 mph. Built based on the 575M Maranello, and available in the dual version with an F1 and manual gearbox, the Superamerica boasts further development of the twelve-cylinder engine, which has been boosted to 540 hp. It can also be equipped with Ferrariís latest high-tech features, represented by the GTC Handling package, including carbon-ceramic brakes. The car is fitted with Bridgestone Potenza RE050 tires.

The carís extraordinary roof, which has been named 'Revocromico' to emphasize the combination of a single rotation axis with electrochromic technology, features a carbon-fiber structure, which makes it very light. Moreover, the trunk can be used to full capacity even when the top is down. When the roof is open, the unique design of the rear window automatically acts as a wind deflector. The use of electrochromic glass for the roof allows the driver to choose the tint level at any time, using a five- position selector that makes it possible to go from dark to light in less than a minute.

The Ferrari Superamerica is a limited-edition model, 559 units will be on sale, and the Los Angeles and Detroit Auto Shows mark its worldwide premier.
