Classics for Sale: Rare Ferrari 400 Superamerica II
It's listed for $3.5 million, but you can't put a price on art. This Ferrari Superamerica 400 Series II in one of just 35 ever built.
It is well documented that Enzo Ferrari reluctantly sold road cars to help fund the racing team. The Prancing Horse was an iconic symbol of performance and people were willing to pay big bucks to own one. His GT cars of the 1950s were scrutinised for not being sporty enough, something that would spur on Ferruccio Lamborghini to build his own cars. This Ferrari 400 Superamerica in our classifieds addressed critics with more performance and stunning looks.

Replacing the 342 America, the 400 SA had its V12 engine bored out from 3.0-litres to 4.0-litres and featured an outside-plug arrangement inspired by the Testarossa racing cars. Revealed at the 1959 Turin Motor Show, it also possessed a powerful set of Dunlop disc brakes that outperformed the typical drum brakes of the era.
Ferrari further improved the car the following year by introducing a Superfast II in November 1960 with distinctive aerodynamic bodywork. A second series of Superamerica Aerodinamico cars arrived in 1962, retaining the head-turning design of its predecessor, but gaining a longer wheelbase. This car is the 32nd of 35 total Series II Superamerica cars.
It is a beautiful example of this elegant coachbuilt car finished in silver with a contrasting red leather interior. Ferrari’s GT cars wanted for nothing, an attitude that is retained by the company today, and so they received every luxury a car of the era could afford.
This Ferrari comes with a well-documented history of its owners and restoration through the years. It’s a well-travelled car, starting its life in Italy before heading to America, a Swiss owner then took it back to Europe before it traveled to its current home back in the states. Throughout its journey, it has been shown at famous events such as the Amelia Island Concours d’Elegance and Palm Beach Cavallino Classic. It’s also an award winner, taking best in show at Ferrari Concorso Pasadena and the Muckenthaler Festival 2018.
Classic Ferraris are special, but this rare 400 Superamerica is a work of automotive art. It’s currently listed for $3.5 million with Crevier Classic Cars.
