Celebrating 60 years in America, Ferrari launches the F60America limited edition


As a throwback to the 50s and 60s, Ferrari is creating very limited edition, built-to-order cars such as the example you see here, the F60America. This new take on the F12 Berlinetta, the F60A uses Ferrari's racing livery as a starting point for this model that celebrates Ferrari's 60 years in the US. The asymmetrical red over black interior accentuates the driver's cockpit area and the F60A wears special 60th Anniversary "Prancing Horse" badges on the wheel arches and on the interior tunnel. Stylized American flags adorn the seats. Ferrari's fabled V12 (700+ hp) has reported for duty along with most of Ferrari's available equipment. In keeping with Ferrari's traditions, only ten F60Americas will be made and offered to current owners first...and you guessed it, they are all spoken for. I suppose if you just had to have one, you could create your own from the Ferrari catalog (close but no cigar), but your bank account should have low-to mid seven figures free for the purchase. Pretty though isn't it?

Press Release:
A new Ferrari to commemorate 60 years in America

To celebrate Ferrari’s 60th year in North America, Maranello has returned to its 1950s and 60s tradition of producing strictly limited edition, built-to-order cars. The result is the F60America, of which just 10 will be produced. The new car combines our American clients’ two great passions – the V12 engine and open-top driving – and is being unveiled at an anniversary celebration gala dinner at Beverly Hills City Hall.

The powerful and innovative mid-front-mounted V12 and specific gear ratios underscore the F60America’s wonderfully sporty character. The F60America’s personality is instantly clear from its flanks which are characterised by an innovative 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.

The cabin’s 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.

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 wonderfully elegant and unique F60America has entranced US collectors and all 10 examples are already spoken for.
