Published 29 January 2015

A rare1960 Ferrari 400 Superamerica SWB cabriolet could sell for £4.6m when it goes to auction in March.

The matching-numbers cars is powered by a 4.0-litre 340bhp V12 and wrapped in a coachbuilt Pinin Farina body. It will go under the hammer at RM’s Amelia Island sale in Florida on March 14.

Bearing chassis number 1945SA, this left-hand drive example is the third of only seven short-wheelbase Supermaerica’s built.

Fitted with open headlights, it is finished in Verde Bottiglia with a Rosso Connoly leather interior. Its current owner commissioned a no-expense-spared restoration

The Superamerica is joined by another handsome Italian – a 1931 Alfa Romeo 6C 1750 Spider. Chassis number 10814313 has coachwork by Zagato and this one is a fifth-series example with matching body stampings throughout.

Like the Superamerica, it has had a chequebook restoration. Imported to the United States in 2011 and exhibited the following year at Pebble Beach, it carries an estimate of between £1.5m and £1.7m.
