Very few 400 Superamerica were assembled on a SWB chassis. The third of these cars, made in 1960, was sold for $ 6.4 million including premium by RM Sotheby's on 14 March 2015.
The seventh car left the factory in 1962. It was exhibited by Ferrari at the Geneva Motor show and then by Chinetti at the New York Auto show. Hopes for a development in that market were disappointed. Only one customer had a desire to own this model: he bought that unit, which was the last.
His name was Gus Stallings. His passion was to push the most powerful cars to their maximum possible speed on the Bonneville Salt Flats. Its 400 Superamerica reached 233 km/h at the end of 1962.
This ultimate 400 Superamerica SWB is estimated $ 7M for sale without reserve by RM Sotheby's in Fort Worth, TX on May 2, lot 222.
