1960 Ferrari Superfast II by Pininfarina

At the Turin Motor Show in 1960, Superfast II made its first public outing. Ferrari boasted that the aerodynamic body design had been created in a wind tunnel. Its shape, reminiscent of a fat airplane wing, featured headlights that retracted into the nose of the body.


In the winter of 1961-1962, a hood scoop was added, the rear fender skirts were removed, and the headlights moved into the front of the fenders to be covered by curved plastic. The revised body became the "standard" 400 Superamerica.
