42 Ferrari 400 Superamerica, s/n 2809 SA
A well-customized & well-preserved Ferrari

The Ferrari 400 Superamerica, chassis s/n 2809 SA, is a 1961 SWB (2420 mm) coupé, which was provided with a full aluminium body, rather than the usual steel body, and the original covered headlight configuration. Thus, the combination of the SWB chassis, an all aluminium body and covered headlights, make it arguably the most desirable variant of the model.
