Maranello, 10 October 2014: To let loose Ferrari’s 60th year in North America, Maranello has reoccurred to its 1950s and 60s heritage of producing strictly limited edition, built-to-order cars. The upshot is the F60America, of which just 10 will be produced. The new car stand in with Ferrari 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 draw attention to the F60America’s strikingly sporty character. The F60America’s personality is spontaneously 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 take over 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 miraculously superior and one-of-a-kind F60America has fascinated US collectors and all 10 examples are already spoken for.
