Italian supercar maker Ferrari has introduced a limited edition F60 America to celebrate Ferrari’s 60th year in North America, Maranello which has returned to its 1950s and 60s tradition of producing strictly limited edition, built-to-order cars.
The F60 America was unveiled at an anniversary celebration gala dinner at Beverly Hills City Hall. The F60 America combines American clients’ two great passions – the V12 engine and open-top driving.
Only 10 units of this supercar will be produced. The decision to produce such a strictly 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 F60America is based on the F12 Berlinetta platform, powered by Ferrari’s award-winning mid-front-mounted 6.3 V12 which produces 731bhp and enables the car to sprint from 0 to 100 km/h in just 3.1 seconds.
The front of the car is dominated by the classic Ferrari single front grille with chrome finish and integrated air intakes for the brakes. The F60America’s bodywork adopts the classic North American Racing Team livery, and the special Ferrari 60th anniversary Prancing Horse badge on the wheelarches also appears on the tunnel in the cabin.
The F60America can be closed with a light fabric top usable at speeds of up to 120 km/h.
The Be-spoke cabin with asymmetrical design highlights the driver’s 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 driver’s side all swathed in composite materials. The racing seats also feature a stylised American flag motif on the centre of each seat and backrest.
