The F60 America – named in celebration of Ferrari marking six decades of selling cars in the US. Ferrari, has a history of special edition open-topped cars for the American market, stretching right back to the 275 GTS NART Spider of 1967, created after US importer Luigi Chinetti requested from Enzo Ferrari for his US clients.
The F60 America is rather more than just a de-roofed F12 although the F60 will get from 0-62mph in 3.1 seconds, exactly the same as the F12. There’s aluminum bodywork, with deeper side strakes, extra bonnet holes and more pronounced winglets. The leather-clad roll hoops are backed by carbon fiber ‘buttresses’ that stretch out over the rear deck, helping to smooth airflow around the F60’s rigorously aero-designed back end.
One unique feature is the driver’s seat, which is red, while the passenger seat is black, Ferrari say it is a nod to classic Ferrari race cars. You may ask about that white striped bright blue paint is a tribute to Luigi Chinetti’s North American Racing Team.
Like that 275, the F60 America will be limited to a production run of just 10 units and unfortunately all of them have been spoken for already.
