America, this is your exclusive Ferrari, the strictly limited edition F60 America, a topless version of the F12berlinetta with a 730hp (740PS) V12 residing under its hood.
It was made to commemorate the 60 years of Ferrari business in North America, but before you get too excited, learn that, despite a $2.5 million price tag (more than six times the price of an F12b), all 10 examples have already been spoken for.
Ferrari’s decision to limit production to 10 units was not made by chance as it pays homage to the 1967 275 GTS4 NART Spider, the open version of the 275 GTB4 that the importer, Luigi Chinetti, specifically requested from Enzo Ferrari for the U.S. in 10 examples.
The F60 America is not as near as dramatic as Ferrari’s other F12-based project, the recent F12 TRS barchetta, but it still stands out, as the Italians made a lot of changes to the design.
Along with removing the roof and adding two leather-trimmed roll-hoops backed by carbon-fiber-trimmed flying buttresses, Ferrari also restyled the front and rear ends of the F12, as well as the doors and the wings. The convertible was painted in the classic North American Racing Team livery and sports special anniversary badges.
The F60 will be supplied with a fabric top that you will have to remove by hand.
Inside, Ferrari went for an asymmetrical design with the driver’s area trimmed in red and the passenger side in black. Perhaps it’s the angle of the official photo, but the shiny red accents on the right hand side of the dashboard and the lower center console look kitsch in a teenager-tuned 1998 Honda Civic…kind of way.
The racing seats that feature a stylized American flag motif on the other hand look the part.
For its motivation, the F60 America keeps the F12b’s 730hp (740PS) 6.3-liter V12 engine paired to a seven-speed dual-clutch transaxle with E-Diff enabling the car to go from 0 to 100 km/h (62mph) in 3.1 seconds.
