1962 Ferrari 400 Superamerica auctioned for a record breaking $3.5 million

This weekend saw the extravagant auction of a 1962 Ferrari 400 Superamerica at an RM Auction in Monaco. For a sweet $3.5 million, this is the highest price ever paid for a Superamerica. And the rich kid who made this purchase has chosen to remain anonymous. 1962 Ferrari 400 Short Wheelbase Cabriolet, with its shining black armor, nestles a 340 HP, 4.0-liter single overhead cam V12 engine in its little belly.

The car can also zip up to a sweet 145mph, and it did so at the Bourneville salt flats when it was purchased new, with the event recorded in the November 1962 issue of Road & Track. The car has been restored before the auction, and a few tweaks here and there have made it, unlike a factory model. This is one car to show off on a lovely Sunday drive through some flat country roads.
