9. 1959 Ferrari 410 Superamerica Series III Coupe by Pinin Farina
Sale Price: $5,335,000
Auction: RM Sotheby’s
Enzo Ferrari created exclusive grand touring cars for his famous and wealthy clientele, and the 410 Superamerica was one of those exclusive models — essentially a coachbuilt car of the time. This example, chassis 1305 SA, was completed in May 1959, the 25th 410 Superamerica built and the fourth of only a dozen Series III models. Special features exclusive to chassis 1305 SA are the competition-style covered headlights, a unique rear-fender design and unique taillights. The Series III 410 Superamericas are powered by 400-horsepower 4.9-liter Lampredi V12 engine, and this car still has its original numbers-matching engine, original gearbox and rear axle. Originally sold in Geneva, Superamerica 1305 SA had a series of owners before being sold to John Hajduk of Chicago in 1976. Hajduk’s Motorkraft of Bensenville, Illinois, completed a full restoration in dark British Racing Green with yellow striping — the same colors as today. The car has been unseen since the late 1990s.
