1965 Ferrari 500 Superfast
The 500 Superfast made its debut at the Geneva Auto Show in March of 1964, replacing the 400 SA as the top-of-the-line grand touring Ferrari. At about double the price of a 'production' Ferrari of the same era, the factory sales brochure voiced that this was a Ferrari for 'sovereigns, performers and great industrialists.' Unlike the Bugatti Royale, to which it is often compared, the Superfast was popular with Ferrari's wealthy clients, with 36 examples being sold and delivered over a span of 28 months between the Geneva Auto Show and the last 500 Superfast delivered.

The Pininfarina body was sleek, elegant and uncluttered by excess decoration. Other than color preferences or cosmetic updates, such as the change from 11 vents in the front fender louvers to three vents, there were few other variants in the various cars built, other than two cars being ordered with covered headlights and several cars ordered with an assist allowing the driver to open the passenger door without leaving the driver's seat. One car was delivered with extra front-mounted driving lights.

The 500 Superfast seems to have been aimed at the American and British markets, with 12 of 36 being delivered in the USA. Of the 36 cars built, two were destroyed in accidents, and all of the remaining 34 cars are accounted for today.
