The one-of-a-kind Ferrari Superamerica 45

New Ferrari Special Projects one-off debuts at Villa d’Este Maranello, Italy – New 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 made its public debut on the 20th of May at the Villa d’Este Concorso d’Eleganza. The design is bespoke, featuring a carbon-fiber rotating hard-top which incorporates a rear screen. The boot is entirely new to house the roof when open, and is in carbon-fiber with a design optimized to reduce drag and increase rear downforce.

The rear buttresses are body-colored, integral with the rear wheel arches, 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 aluminum A-pillars, wing mirrors and door handles. The Superamerica 45 is finished in an exclusive Blu Antille, a color that matches another important car in the client’s collection – a 1961 400 Superamerica cabriolet no. 2331SA. The wheels are body-colored with a contrasting diamond finish to the spokes. The roof and other carbon-fiber 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 personalization, with a carefully selected combination of Cuoio leather trim and Blu Scuro carbon fiber details and a latest-generation touch-screen infotainment system.
