Found in abandoned dealership: Ferrari 575 Superamerica, Porsche Carrera GT


These photos were taken by Instagram user Cheongermando. He visited an abandoned Ferrari-Maserati dealer in South China, where these Chevrolet Corvette Z06 (C5), Ferrari 575 Superamerica and Porsche Carrera GT have been standing still for more than eight years. They appear to be in excellent condition, although covered with a thick layer of dust.

Standing still for at least ten years

The Ferrari-Maserati dealer is said to have opened in 2005, but the company had to close its doors again after a few years. Behind the 575 Superamerica is a display for the Ferrari 612 Scaglietti. That model went out of production in 2010, so the supercar dealer must be closed before then. And that would mean that the Corvette, Superamerica and Carrera GT would stand still for at least ten years, happily indoors.

Value of at least 1.5 million

It is quite incomprehensible that no one cared about the cars in all that time. Because the three represent a value of at least 1.5 million euros. The Porsche Carrera GT would be one of the very last to be produced, with a mileage of only 4500 kilometers. It comes in Zanzibar red with matching wheels.

Porsche Carrera GT

In the back of the Carrera GT is a naturally aspirated 5.7-liter V10, developed for racing. The block produces 612 hp and 590 Nm of torque. If you can deal with the unruly clutch of the Carrera GT and are fast enough with the manual six-speed gearbox, you are at 100 km / h in 3.9 seconds. The top speed of the Porsche is 330 km / h.

Ferrari 575 Superamerica

The Ferrari 575 Superamerica is a limited edition of the 575M Maranello. They have the same V12 in the front, but in the Superamerica that 25 hp is stronger (540 versus 515 hp). The special thing about the Superamerica is its convertible top. It folds 180 degrees around an axle and when opened it lies flat on the boot lid. Ferrari only built 599 copies of the Superamerica.

Chevrolet Corvette Z06

Compared to the top two, the Chevrolet Corvette Z06 is pretty normal. The American supercar has to make do with a 5.7-liter V8 with 390 hp and 522 Nm. With a sprint from 0 to 100 km / h in 4.3 seconds, the Corvette Z06 can keep up with the Ferrari and Porsche. But then someone must first save this trio from an inglorious life under the dust.
