2011 Ferrari Superamerica 45 news, pictures, and information
New Ferrari Special Projects one-off to debut at Villa d'EsteNew York collector and Ferrari enthusiast Peter Kalikow visited the factory to take delivery of his Special Projects Ferrari Superamerica 45, a unique one-off model. Styled internally by Ferrari Design and engineered and built in-house, the car was specified by Mr Kalikow to celebrate 45 years since he first became a Ferrari client and will make its public debut on the 20th of May at the Villa d'Este Concorso d'Eleganza.
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 wîth a design optimised to reduce drag and increase rear downforce.
The rear buttresses are body-coloured, integral wîth the rear wheelarches, and incorporate rear quarterlights. The side view is further distinguished by double air vents on the front wing. The Ferrari Superamerica 45 also features a specific chromed front grille and special burnished aluminium A-pillars, wing mirrors and door handles.
The Superamerica 45 is finished in an exclusive Blu Antille, a colour that matches another important car in the client's collection – a 1961 400 Superamerica cabriolet nr. 2331SA. The wheels are body-coloured wîth a contrasting diamond finish to the spokes. The roof and other carbon-fibre 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.
The interior is another area of exquisite personalisation, wîth a carefully selected combination of Cuoio leather trim and Blu Scuro carbon fibre details and a latest-generation touch-screen infotainment system.Source - Ferrari

|ALWAYS KEEP PUSHING|
|Watching pitstops on TV or from the back of the garage gives you an overview of an ensemble in action. When stops go smoothly - and they went very smoothly in Malaysia - the choreography is a beautiful thing to behold: as intricate as a beautifully made watch and just as well put together. To see that, however, you have to be watching from a distance. Crouched over a wheel-gun or a tire the field of vision is somewhat narrower, coalesced into that instant of activity that gets the car moving ...[Read more...]|
