Ferrari’s limited-edition supercar will cost $3.2 million

Last week, outgoing Ferrari chairman Luca di Montezemolo  announced that the Italian carmaker will celebrate 60 years of North American sales with a special-edition supercar.

Only 10 copies of that car will be made, and now Automotive News Europe (sub. required) reports that they will cost around $3.2 million apiece.

That may be more than twice the estimated cost of a LaFerrari, but the car has reportedly sold out already. Clearly, we’re in the midst of a new Gilded Age.

Set to debut in Los Angeles October 12, the celebratory Ferrari will likely be based on the F12 Berlinetta, but with enough exterior and interior enhancements to justify its limited-edition status.

Ferrari says the car will be painted blue with white stripes, the colors of the North American Racing Team (NART), which raced Ferraris beginning in the 1960s.

NART was founded by Luigi Chinetti, a former racing driver and Ferrari’s first U.S. dealer.

Chinetti used NART to promote the brand through racing. The team raced Ferraris until 1982, entering more than 200 races and fielding famous drivers, including Phil Hill and Mario Andretti.

However, the NART-inspired supercar should be something completely different from those racers of old.

Like most of Ferrari’s recent hot rod models, including the late 599 GTO, the F12 NART will probably be more of an extreme road car than a racecar with license plates.

Considering that the standard F12’s 6.3-liter V12 already produces 740 horsepower, it should also be quite monstrous.

Why you should shop the Thule rooftop cargo box sale
