1956 Ferrari 410 Superamerica

The Ferrari 410 Superamerica was the successor the 375 America and unveiled in 1955. It continued the trend of be an exclusive vehicle with fashionable styling, impressive power, exhilarating performance, and a steep price tag. It was given a strengthened chassis, an improved synchromesh gearbox, and modern coil-spring front suspension, making it a more refined Grand Touring automobile than its predecessor. Power was from a 4.9-liter Lampredi V-12 version found in the Ferrari 375 Plus. Even though it was a de-tuned version, it offered 340 horsepower which helped give it a top speed of nearly 150 mph, helping it secure the title as being the fastest road car of its day.

Pinin Farina built the majority of the bodies for the 410 SA. They built 12 similar bodies for the Series I 410 Superameria on both the 2800mm and later 2600mm chassis. The remaining chassis received bodywork from Boano and Ghia.
