With only six Superamericas coming to Australia, there won't be too many sightings on the street of the exclusive 320 km/h convertible.
Just as impressive as its top speed and its 0-100 km/h time of just 4.2 seconds, the glass roof can open in just 10 seconds - even on the move.
The Revocromico roof can change its light transmission properties to let through anything from one per cent to 99 per cent of the sun.
Powered by a 5.7 litre 375 kW V12 engine from the 575M Maranello, the Pininfarina-designed Superamerica is produced in a limited series and is available with either an F1-style or manual gearbox.
Also on the Ferrari stand at the Melbourne International Motor Show will be the mid-engined F430 and F430 Spider.
The F430 is the benchmark mid-engined sports car, and the F430 Spider combines all of its style and performance with a carefully strengthened body and an automatic electric top.
Joining them will be the F612 Scaglietti, a proper four seater with a generous boot that embodies the true spirit of a grand tourer and is powered by the same mighty V12 as the Superamerica.
Melbourne International Motor Show runs from Thursday 9 February to Sunday 19 February at the Melbourne Exhibition Centre, and is organised and promoted by the Victorian Automobile Chamber of Commerce through its dealer division the Australian Automobile Dealers Association (Vic).
