21st October, 2014

To celebrate Ferrariís 60th year in North America, Maranello has returned to its 1950s and 60s tradition of producing limited edition, built-to-order cars. The result is the F60 America, of which just 10 will be made for American buyers.

The new car combines the American client's two great passions - the V12 engine and open-top driving Ė and was unveiled recently at an anniversary celebration dinner in Beverly Hills, California.

The decision to produce such a limited edition pays homage to another great tradition. Just 10 F60Americas will be built as was the case, for example, with the 1967 275 GTS4 NART Spider, the open version of the 275 GTB4 that the importer, Luigi Chinetti, specifically requested from Enzo Ferrari for his US clients.

The F60 America is powered by Ferrariís mid-front-mounted V12 which enables the car to sprint from 0 to 100 km/h in just 3.1 seconds.

The F60 Americaís 'persona' is instantly clear from its flanks which are characterised by a diapason design theme.†The front of the car is dominated by the classic Ferrari single front grille with chrome finish and integrated air intakes for the brakes.

Two leather-trimmed roll-hoops are backed by carbon-fibre-trimmed flying buttresses which stretch from behind the cabin to the rear, imbuing the harmonious forms of the tail with a sense of movement.

The Ferrari F60 America can be closed with a light fabric top usable at speeds of up to 120 km/h.

The cabinís asymmetrical design highlights the driverís area with sporty red trim, while the passenger side is black, inspired by the historic Ferrari competition cars. The cabin trim is exclusive with the dash, tunnel and door panels on the driverís side all swathed in composite materials. The racing seats also feature a stylised American flag motif on the centre of each seat and backrest.

The F60Americaís bodywork adopts the classic North American Racing Team livery, and the special Ferrari 60th anniversary Prancing Horse badge on the wheel arches also appears on the tunnel in the cabin.

All ten of the unique Ferrari F60 Americas are already sold.


Specifications are subject to change without notice.
