Autotrader Find: Ferrari 575M Superamerica 6-Speed Manual for $700,000

In the Ferrari world, rarer is, of course, better. Rarer cars are more valuable, they’re more sought-after, they’re more desirable. Rarer cars command huge premiums. This is one of the rarest cars.

The car pictured above is a 2005 Ferrari 575M Superamerica, which already makes it one of the rarest modern Ferrari models. Ferrari never makes regular production convertible versions of their V12-powered exotic cars, instead saving the open-roof versions for ultra-rare special editions sold only to their most loyal customers. The Superamerica is a great example of that, as Ferrari says they sold a mere 559 of these in the entire world. See the 2005 Ferrari 575M Superamerica models for sale near you

But that’s not what makes this car so rare. What makes this car so rare is the item installed between the seats: A gated shifter and a 6-speed manual transmission — a true manual with three pedals, not the kind of manual where it’s listed as a manual and you click the pictures, and it turns out to be a paddle-shift F1 automatic. This is the real deal — and it’s one of just 43 stick-shift Superamericas manufactured for the entire planet, and supposedly one of just 17 built for the United States. Like I said, one of the rarest cars.

Naturally, this car is in high demand, so its value is through the roof: It’s offered with just under 12,000 miles by Miller Motorcars, the Ferrari dealership in Greenwich, Connecticut, and the asking price is $699,900 — far more than the car sold for when it was new 12 years ago. But this asking price is very much in line with other sales of stick-shift 575M Superamerica models, and it’ll likely be bolstered by the fact that this is undoubtedly one of the only stick-shift Superamerica models in Ferrari’s traditional colors of Rosso Corsa over tan leather.

It’ll be interesting to see how this one goes — and I wouldn’t be surprised if it goes fast. Find a 2005 Ferrari 575M Superamerica for sale
