F60America is Ferrari’s present for its 60th anniversary in the United States

Article by Christian Andrei, on October 10, 2014

We already know that Ferrari is preparing a special model in order to celebrate its 60th anniversary in the United States and that the upcoming model is going to be an Aperta version of the F12berlinetta. Well, we were right again, just like we were right on the 458 Speciale Spider as we were the only website to announce the new model back in July.

The new Ferrari F60America will be officially introduced on October 12 and as expected, only 10 examples will be made and are already sold. According to Ferrari, the F60America is based on the F12berlinetta and uses the same 6.3-liter V12 engine that produces 740 hp and 690 Nm of torque.

Despite the fact that it is a convertible, the F60America is as fast as the F12berlinetta and is able to accelerate from 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) in 3.1 seconds. When it comes to design, the vehicle’s front end is dominated by the classic Ferrari single front grille with chrome finish and integrated air intakes for the brakes.

Moreover, the new vehicle arrives with a new front hood with integrated air intakes as well as new air intakes located behind the front wheels. At the rear, we observe the two roll-hoops wrapped in leather and backed by carbon-fiber-trimmed flying buttresses.

Ferrari says that its new supercar can be closed with a light fabric top which can be used at speeds of up to 120 km/h or 74 mph.

The rear end resembles the F12berlinetta’s design but it arrives with new taillights as well as with a stylish bumper.

The interior features an assymetrical design and the driver’s area shows a sporty red trim, while the passenger’s side is finished in black, inspired by the historic Ferrari racing cars.

Moreover, the interior arrives with a dash, tunnel and door panels on the driver’s side are swathed in composite materials.  In addition, both seats feature an American flag motif located on the centre.

Regarding the exterior colour, the F60America gets the classic North American Racing Team livery and features special Ferrari 60th anniversary Pracing Horse badge on the wheelarches  as well as on the tunnel located in the cabin. There are no details regarding the price, but the new vehicle is rumored to cost a hefty $2.5 million.

Press Release

Ferrari F60America

To celebrate Ferrari's 60th year in North America, Maranello has returned to its 1950s and 60s 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 our American clients' two great passions - the V12 engine and open-top driving - and has been unveiled at an anniversary celebration gala 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 100 km/h in just 3.1 seconds.

Powerfully muscular, the car is clothed in beautifully sculpted and exceptionally balanced volumes, honed, as ever, strictly to aerodynamic requirements in line with the marque's DNA.

The F60America's personality is instantly 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.

Two leather-trimmed roll-hoops are backed by carbon-fibre-trimmed flying buttresses which stretch from behind the cockpit to the rear, imbuing the elegant harmonious forms of the tail with a sense of movement.

The F60America can be closed with a light fabric top usable at speeds of up to 120 km/h.

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 adopts 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 wonderfully elegant and unique F60America has entranced US collectors and all 10 examples are already spoken for.
