410 Superamerica by Scaglietti

1957 Ferrari 410 Superamerica

Offered by RM Auctions, Phoenix, Arizona, January 19-20, 2012

Sergio Scaglietti, whose Carrozzeria Scaglietti bodied this outstanding Ferrari 410 Superamerica, passed away about two weeks ago. Ferrari built less than 35 410 Superamericas, and this is the only Scaglietti-bodied car.

The stainless steel of the roof and amazing looking tailfins are quite striking. There is much sparkly, shiny silver chrome and steel on this otherwise red car that it makes a grand statement just sitting there.

The 410 used a 5.0 liter V12 that produced 335 horsepower in Series I guise. This Series II car (just one of six) makes even more. In their day, these were the exclusive Ferraris – costing more than twice the amount of a brand new 300SL Gullwing.

That price difference is evident today when Gullwing Mercedes’ are bringing closer and closer to a $1 million each. This car is estimated to fetch between $1.75 million and $2.25 million. More info on the car is available at RM’s site here and more information on the auction, here.

Update: Sold $1,815,000.
