Ferrari creates the celebratory F60America

There’s bad news for anybody who wanted to buy an F60America: only ten examples are being built, and they’ve all been sold already.

Conceived by Ferrari to mark 60 years since the brand arrived in North America, it combines a bespoke open-top aluminium body with the F12’s normally aspirated 730 bhp (545 kW / 740 PS) V12 engine. That output, which is delivered via a seven-speed dual-clutch transmission, results in a 0-62 mph (100 km/h) time of 3.1 seconds.

The F60America is finished in the classic blue North American Racing Team livery and it manages to appear striking from every angle. Deep bonnet vents, dramatically sculptured flanks and a pair of roll hoops with their attendant carbon fibre buttresses all contribute to the car’s unique look.

It’s a similar story inside. Both occupants sit in racing seats that have a stars and stripes motif running down their centres. However, the driver’s side of the cockpit features bright red upholstery and composite materials, in contrast to the passenger’s much more sombre surroundings.

The F60America’s style and exclusivity certainly didn’t come cheap. Reports suggest that Ferrari charged $2.5 million for each one, a price tag that equates to around £1.56 million or €1.98 million at current exchange rates.
