Ferrari Superamerica 45: When Two Of A Kind Is One Too Many

Ferrari Superamerica 45

Rich people with lots of money to devote to cars will find that a limited production run of 20 cars is often far to many for their tastes. I mean, you can’t be seen driving what the Sheik of Araby is driving. How embarrassing. That’s where one-off custom vehicles come. Bespoke cars that cannot be found anywhere else in the world except for one very wealthy client’s garage.

The newest addition to this list is the Ferrari Superamerica 45. Designed for Peter Kalikow, a Ferrari collector from New York, the Superamerica 45 was commissioned to celebrate that he’s been a Ferrari client and driver for 45 years. Wow. Celebrating that you love Ferraris by buying yourself a special Ferrari… what a life.

Anyways, Kalikow’s new car is obviously built around a 599 GTB Fiorano, a gorgeous car to begin with. The aesthetic changes to the vehicle include a rotating carbon fiber hard-top, a completely new boot to house the top when it’s down, and new rear buttresses that have become and integral part of the wheel arches. The Superamerica 45 is also painted in a one of a kinda Blu Antille. Case in point: you will never see another one of these (or most likely this one).

Speculation is open to the pricetag that must have come with this special project. A previous bespoke Ferrari called the P540 Superfast Aperta cost the owner a reported $4 million, and it was ugly as sin and covered in gold paint. This Superamerica 45 undoubtedly cost more, but we have to say it- what an amazing looking vehicle. Well done Peter Kalikow, well done.
