TO CELEBRATE Ferrari’s 60th year in North America, Maranello has returned to its Fifties and Sixties 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 Ferrari’s American clients’ two great passions — the V12 engine and open-top driving — and was unveiled this week at a celebration dinner at Beverly Hills City Hall.
The decision to produce such a strictly limited edition pays homage to another great tradition.
Just 10 F60Americas will be built as was the case, for example, with the 1967 275 GTS4 NART Spider, the open version of the 275 GTB4 that the importer, Luigi Chinetti, specifically requested from Enzo Ferrari for his US clients.
The F60America is powered by Ferrari’s award-winning mid-front-mounted V12 which enables the car to sprint from 0 to 100km/h in just 3.1 seconds.
