An open-top V-12 just for us.
If you’re like many of us, you feel a bit burned and left out after seeing that Aston Martin is only making their new Lagonda super-luxury sedan available for the Middle East. Where’s our special-edition, super-exclusive supercar? Those of us the United States can find solace in the fact that Ferrari hasn’t forgotten about us and will be building 10 examples of their built-to-order, limited-edition F60America to celebrate 60 years in America.
In celebration of the automaker’s 60th anniversary, Ferrari is going back to their ‘50s and ‘60s roots and building limited-edition, built-to-order vehicles for clients. The new Ferrari F60America is the first of what will be more custom-tailored supercars for discerning customers in the future.
The new Ferrari F60America is based on the F12Berlinetta and features the same 6.3-liter, front-mid-mounted V-12 engine likely producing 730 horsepower. The ferocious V-12 is mated to the same seven-speed dual-clutch transmission as the F12 but features bespoke gear ratios to add to the more athletic nature of the F60America. That combo will likely mean a 0-60 mph time of just 3.1 seconds.
The design of the Ferrari F60America incorporates classic Ferrari styling with an innovative diapason theme. The iconic Ferrari single front grille with chrome finish sits up front and tapers back to emphasize speed. The sporty character of the Ferrari F60America is characterized by headlights that swoop backwards and flank two hood vents, while air outlets in the front fenders help create a smooth flow of cooling air to the brakes. The open-top supercar features two tunnels behind the two front seats that flow backwards into the integrated rear spoiler. A carbon fiber rear diffuser sits below the two round taillights and accommodate two sets of dual tailpipes on each side of the bumper.
To pay homage to its footprint in the United States, Ferrari has given the F60America livery from their North American Racing Team (NART) with a white center stripe running the length of the supercar. Special Ferrari 60th Anniversary Prancing Horse badges are worn on the wheel arches and on the center tunnel inside the cockpit.
The interior is an exclusive place to be and surrounded by a mix of luxury and classic racing touches with an asymmetrical design. The driver’s portion wears red trim and highlights while the passenger’s side is black, just like the historic competition cars from Ferrari. Lightweight composite material is featured on the dashboard, center tunnel, and door panels to showcase the Ferrari F60America’s dedication to speed and power. One of the final touches are American flag motifs on the center of each racing seat as well as the backrests.
The new Ferrari F60America reportedly carried a $2.5 million price tag, however all 10 are currently spoken for by US collectors.
