As the most exclusive and expensive road-going Ferrari of its era, this particular 1962 Ferrari 400 Superamerica LWB Coupe Aerodinamico, chassis 4251 SA, is one of only 22 Series II long-wheelbase examples built. It features striking Coupe Aerodinamico coachwork by Pininfarina, inspired by the Superfast II show car and Ferrari’s Sperimentale race car. This example was delivered new to the North American Distributor Luigi Chinetti and displayed at the 1963 New York International Auto Show. It is well-documented by Ferrari historian Marcel Massini and has had just two Southern California owners over the past 35 years.

In 2004, this example underwent a complete ground-up restoration by marque specialist Motion Products Inc. and comes elegantly finished in silver with green leather upholstery, complete with fitted luggage. Chassis 4251 SA is a multiple award recipient, having won Best of Show at the Ferrari National Meet, Best of Class at Cavallino, Amelia Island, Meadow Brook, and Palos Verdes. It was designated the Pininfarina Award at Villa d’Este, in addition to Second in Class at the Pebble Beach Concours. This championed example has also successfully participated in several rallies, including the Colorado Grand, the Louis Vuitton Rally, and the Copperstate 1000.
