Ferrari's last "America" model, the 400 Superamerica first took to the highways in 1959. Produced in Coupe, Spyder and also Cabriolet forms the 400 carried typically stylish coachwork in all variants.
Powered by a 3967cc V12, breathing through triple Weber carbs the 400 produced around 340bhp, giving it a 160+mph top speed.
All-round disc brakes helped keep the this rapid 2 seater in check, an overdrive gearbox also eased the cars high speed cruising ability.
Built until 1964, only 50 examples of this Italian exotic were ever produced.
