Rare Ferrari 400 Superamerica could fetch up to $5 Million at auction

The Ferrari 400 SuperAmerica was originally unveiled in 1959 at the Turin Motor Show in Italy as a more powerful replacement for the outgoing 410. During the new car's lifetime only 46 examples were built, with only six being short wheelbase convertibles. This particular model that will roll across the auction block on May 1st just so happens to be the last one ever constructed and adding even more to its classic car's collectibility is that it is the only to featuring a set of sport style covered headlights and is expected to be sold for around $5,000,000.

The 400 SuperAmerica is powered by a 4.0 Liter Gioachino designed Ferrari V12 that produced 340 HP at a screaming 7000 RPM and could accelerate from 0 to 60 MPH in 9.2 seconds and reach a top speed of 174 MPH. The auction will take place at The Grimaldi Forum in Monaco and is part of the RM Auction circuit, and while the most expensive Ferrari sale to date included actor James Corburn's 1961 Ferrari California Spyder that exceeeded all expectations by selling for a world record $10,894,900; five million is still a considerable amount to pay for a fifty year old car, even if it is a Ferrari.
