Usually when you go to auto shows you’re banned from even coming close to concept cars. However, at the Concorso d’Eleganza Villa d’Este, show goers are presented with the rare opportunity to see concepts in close “proximity and a chance to examine details, features and form in the natural light close up in the reality of the outside world”, said the President of the Concorso d‘Eleganza Villa d’Este and Director of BMW Group Classic, Karl Baumer at the press conference of the Concorso in Milan.

Later this month at the 2011 Concorso d‘Eleganza Villa d’Este those attending will get to see a new bespoke convertible Ferrari. Known as the Ferrari Super America 45, the convertible will be powered by a 6.0L V6 engine.

“A recent and fascinating trend in the rarefied world of top end Ferrari collectors is the commissioning of one off bespoke version of high end models from Italian coach builders,” the press release stated. “Several ‘special clients’ have approached Pininfarina (and others) in recent years to build uniquely styled cars, an idea that goes back to the fifties went customers like film director Roberto Rossellini had a special car built for his wife, Ingrid Bergman.”

The Ferrari Super America belongs to a customer in New York.
