Ferrari F40 and F50 are among the most famous and desired ponies of all time, models created to celebrate important anniversaries (40 years and 50 years since the start of the Drake’s sporting activity) and produced in a very limited edition. Far less famous but even rarer is the Ferrari F60, spider produced in 10 specimens and dedicated to the 60 years of presence of the Maranello company in the United States.
A special presented in 2014 and based on the Ferrari F12 Berlinetta, with the hood as the cradle of the naturally aspirated V12 with 730 HP and 690 Nm of torque for a 0-100 finished in just 3.1 “.
And one of the 10 Ferrari F60s produced will be the protagonist of a Sotheby’s auction scheduled for August 13, 2021 in Monterey, on the occasion of the Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance. The starting price is set at 3.5 million dollars (2.9 million euros) and it could easily reach almost 4 million euros.
The V12 without the roof
To dress the mechanics of the F12 there is a bodywork with completely new lines, inspired in part by the 1967 Ferrari 275 GTS-4 NART, a special version (also produced in 10 units) of the 275 GTB / 4 Spider dedicated to the States United. Just like the Ferrari F60.
The spider bodywork is also taken from the ancestor, with a small canvas top that – when open – allows you to enjoy the unmistakable sound of the naturally aspirated V12 with the Prancing Horse above. Other dedicated details are the two roll bars covered in leather with carbon fiber rear fins and which then ideally give life to the rear diffuser. Needless to say in carbon fiber.
Also in the passenger compartment there is no shortage of special details such as Navy Blue leather covering the dashboard, door panels and center console, with contrasting red stitching. The color choice for the seats is also particular: red leather (with vertical stripe with stars and stripes) and Navy blue leather for the passenger’s, with the same stars and stripes motif but on a white background.
Sure sure, 2.9 million euros are the stuff of collectors with stellar bank accounts, but whoever wins the auction will take home not only one of the rarest Ferraris ever, but also a car like new. The Ferrari F60 for sale has indeed traveled just 3,387 km and both externally and internally it is practically immaculate.
