2015 Ferrari F60America

Jump to Images

On the 10th day of the 10th month, Ferrari announces their latest exclusive model, limited to a mere 10 examples. At $2.5 million, that relative exclusivity does not come cheap.

What makes this car so special? It features a combination that has become all too rare in recent decades for Ferrari: a V12 convertible. The last production car of this type from Ferrari was the 2005-2006 Ferrari 575M Superamerica, which was preceded by the 2001-2002 550 Barchetta, and prior to that was the exclusive 1995-1997 F50 supercar. Then you start going back to the Daytona Spiders of the early 1970s, and it makes you realize what a rare event a vehicle like this is.

The F60 is based on the F12berlinetta with a few other changes aside from the droptop. One of the most intriguing is the assymetrical interior design. The driver's side is lavishly appointed in red leather seating and trim, while the passenger side is black. This style takes it inspiration from past Ferrari race cars, and it wouldn't be a surprise to see it on future supercar designs.

The bodywork colors appropriately reflect those of the North American Racing Team livery.

(from Ferrari Press Release) A new Ferrari to commemorate 60 years in America

Maranello, October 10th 2014. 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 tomorrow evening 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.
