The Ferrari 400 Superamerica debuted in 1960 as the best road-going car the company had to offer. Powered by a Type 163 V-12, the Superamerica made 320 horsepower and was capable of 160 MPH — numbers that were impressive even for full-blooded race cars of the era. 46 were made between 1959 and 1964, with each one costing as much as a Rolls-Royce, with all but two wearing Pininfarina coachwork as seen on the example here. This 400 Superamerica is one of 14 made with a short-wheelbase chassis, making it even rarer, but the most astounding detail about this car is its fully-documented history and nearly unrestored condition. It received its Ferrari Classiche certification in 2004, and was thoroughly serviced with an eye towards preservation by Al Roberts of Ferrari of Fort Lauderdale, Florida at a cost of over $70,000. For all that, the car isn't a trailer queen — the car is driven regularly by its current owner and the same will be expected of its next when it comes to auction.
