By 2005, the Ferrari 575M was getting a little long in the tooth. As it was essentially just an updated version of the 550, the flagship car that replaced the Testarossa had been kicking around for a decade at that point, and it was time for something new. But Ferrari wanted to send the car out in style, as befitted a car that brought back the front-engine Ferrari gran turismo. So a special swan song edition of the car was conceived of and named the Superamerica, a name steeped in history for the carmaker. Of course, there were some issues with the name.
