2011 Ferrari Super America 45 by Pininfarina

Pininfarina and Ferrari are two companies in the automotive industry that live and breathe pure excellence. Match them up with one of the most luxurious events of the year - the Villa d Este Concorso D’Eleganza - and the outcome is a one-off model based on either the 599 GTB Fiorano or the P540 Superfast Aperta (pictured).

Rivaling previous years’ debuts like the BMW M1 Homage and the Alfa Romeo TZ3 Corsa by Zagato , the Ferrari Super America 45 by Pininfarina is a project that was specially requested by a client from New York. It is described as a "convertible, 6 cilindri, 6000 ccm" model. While we only have the first details at the momemt, the official press release says:

"A recent and fascinating trend in the rarefied world of top end Ferrari collectors is the commissioning of one off bespoke version of high end models from Italian coach builders. Several ‘special clients’ have approached Pininfarina (and others) in recent years to build uniquely styled cars, an idea that goes back to the fifties went customers like film director Roberto Rossellini had a special car built for his wife, Ingrid Bergman. The Villa d Este is the natural setting for the exposure of such special vehicles and as well as the Glickenhaus P4/5 this year we have this very special Ferrari Super America belong to the New York."

UPDATE 05/19/2011: Ferrari has unveiled the first official details on the Superamerica 45 - another one-off model that will make its world debut this weekend at the Villa d’Este Concorso d’Eleganza. The model will be distinguished by a carbon-fiber rotating hard-top with a rear screen, body colored rear buttresses, double air vents on the front wing, a specific chromed front grille and special burnished aluminum A-pillars, wing mirrors, and door handles. The model will be painted in an exclusive Blu Antille, contrasting with darker blue on the front splitter, side skirts, and rear diffuser. For the interior, the Superamerica 45 gets Cuoio leather trim and Blu Scuro carbon fiber details, plus the latest-generation touch-screen infotainment system.

UPDATE 05/23/2011: Marchettino has shot a pretty impressive video of the Super America 25 at the 2011 Concorso d’Eleganza Villa d’Este were the car made its debut. With the occasion we found out that the car is a custom one-off made for Peter Kalilow to celebrate his 45th anniversary. Hit the jump for the video.

Yeah, that’s probably the best part of being able to buy a Ferrari. Since they would actually allow you to get a car that is tailor made to your tastes, you get a car that is uniquely yours.

I really envy those guys who not only are able to buy Ferraris, but also have the moolah to tailor made the car to their liking. I can imagine what I would do if I were given a shot at that.

Hmm, performance figures? Well since this one is a Ferrari, then we can pretty much expect it to be pretty fast. Though probably not as fast as the Italia.

I would say that this one is really one heck of a car. Just take a look at it in the video, it really looks outstanding, especially with that violet paint job.

Well now, that was fast. I thought that they would release the one off model much later. And looking at the features that they have listed, this one is definitely going to be a drool worth car.

The wheels are definitely the ones that I find eye catching on this one. They really have a certain style and class that really adds up to the car’s whole feel.

Is that one a blue or a purple? Anyways, whichever colors they have on this one, I am really liking the car more. After all, this one is a Ferrari, so there is really nothing about it not to love.

Well, they haven’t mentioned the figure performance of this car but I have feeling that it would similar to the Mercedes SLS. BTW, I like the glossiness of this car, hope I could test drive it. 

At least, Pininfarina still have time to make a car together with the Ferrari, it seems that they form a great team. I like sportiness of this car plus the convertible version. However,
I just hope that the weight on the hard rooftop wouldn’t affect the performance of the car.

So this one is simply a one off. Now, who could be the owner of this rare car, or is it simply a design study by Pininfarina? Either way, the car really looks great.

Well, what can I say, this one is certainly nice. Not surprisingly really, since it is Ferrari and Pininfarina after all, their work together is simply amazing.

Well, I have to agree on you about that one. The speed performance of this car would be closely related to 599 GTB. Just look on how powerful its rival car, and I have heard that 599 GTB would be the successor of the 458 Italia!

hmm. The collaboration between Pininfarina and Ferrari is quite interesting. And I can see that the production car is quite admiring. And I just wondering on what will be the power performance of this car.

This annual event would be much awaited for I see theirs a good reason to do so. BTW, the venue of last years event was great! I wan to know what other cars that we need to stay tuned in the opening of the motor show.

If I could recall Super America is a brand for vintage car and I think that’s what the Villa d Este Concorso D’Eleganza all about. For this car, I think it perfectly combines the Vintage and modern styling and I find it good at least we will not get bored on iconic carssmiley
