Spotting multiple Ferrari’s on Rodeo Drive at any time hardly qualifies as news, but Ferrari of America turned Los Angeles’s premier avenue into the epicenter of Ferrari culture. Organized to celebrate Ferrari’s 60th anniversary in the U.S., the event was a prestigious exhibition of 60 unique Ferrari’s from around the world “A Race through the Decades: 1954–2014”. The cars came from all around the world and are possibly the finest collection of classic and racing Ferrari’s ever assembled.
Highlights include a 1948 166 MM Barchetta, the very first Ferrari imported to the United States the 2014 Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance “Best in Show” award–winning 1954 Ferrari 375MM, a 1958 250 TR, a 365GTB/4 Daytona, Steve McQueens’s Ferrari 275GTB/4, a Vignale-bodied 250 Europa, and, also on display will be the Ferrari 308GTS from Magnum P.I. and the Testarossa from Miami Vice. However we couldn’t forget the Le Mans class-winning 250 GTO, or one of the Ferrari 330 P4 race cars that was part of the 1-2-3 finish at Daytona in 1967.
The newest member of the Ferrari family was also on display and it received a glowing introduction from new chairman Sergio Marchionne. It was the F60 America which is only for the US market and all ten of them have already sold for a reported fee of $2.5M each. The F60 America harks back to earlier America-branded offerings like the like the 1967 275 NART Spider, and the 2005 575 Superamerica.
