Ferrari’s F60America wraps a big V12 in the Stars and Stripes

Ferrari F60America
Few things are more American than a powerful, topless sports car with the Stars and Stripes embroidered into the seats, even if that car happens to be Italian.

In celebration of Ferrari’s 60th anniversary in the United States, the brand has unveiled the F60America special edition.

The special edition supercar is based on the F12 Berlinetta, but the roof has been chopped and the entirety of the car is bathed in patriotic and classic racing livery.

Each asymmetrical seat features American flag stitching running down the middle, with a bold red and black theme separating driver from passenger. A lightweight fabric top completes the package can be operated at speeds up to 75 mph.

Both the front and rear fascia of the F60 feature subtle tweaks. At the bow, the edges of the front bumper have been elongated, extenuating the grill’s natural curve, and the hood now features dual venting.

Out back, the bodywork has been buffed and contoured, highlighting the vehicle’s muscular frame beneath. The rear bumper is almost entirely new, with unique splitters playing off the quad exhaust pipes and more pronounced taillights.

Instead of a fixed rear window, Ferrari has fastened two leather-trimmed roll hoops onto the trunk lid. Trimmed in carbon fiber, the hoops flow into flying buttresses that cascade down the rear of the car, giving it a retro-themed racing feel.

Additionally, the entire body is dressed in the classic blue of Ferrari’s North American Racing Team (NART).

Mechanically identical to the F12 Berlinetta, the F60’s 6.2-liter, 740-horsepower V12 propels the car to 60 mph in just 3.1 seconds.

The $3.2 million custom F60 harkens back to Ferrari’s bespoke tradition of the 1950s and 1960s, when the company built several limited-edition sports cars for specific regions.

One such car was the 275 GTS4 NART Spider of 1967, an open top version of the 275 GTB4 built specifically for U.S. customers. Like the GTS4, only 10 examples of the F60 will be built, and they are all currently spoken for.
