Ferrari 410 Superamerica Ghia, 1956
Not many people know about the Ferrari America series of the 1950s and 60s. They were large touring cars with the largest V12 engines, custom bodywork and produced in short production runs.
The 1956 Superamerica 410 Coupe above was Carrozzeria Ghia’s last Ferrari. Note the very American T-Birdesque styling. At one stage a 410 Superamerica offered at the New York Auto Show was more than twice as expensive as the Mercedes-Benz 300SL Gullwing also exhibited.
Other famed coachbuilders and tuning houses other than Ghia to work on the America series included Pinin Farina, Boano, Vignale and Scaglietti. No Bertone or Zagato, however.
