Ferrari, kinda quietly, announced the 60F1 special edition as the last hurrah for the 599 Series.
The 60F1 as the name suggests is an homage to Ferrari’s 60 years of winning in Formula 1. The car is based on the 599 HGTE handling package which comes with sportier suspension and chassis setting, sharper throttle and transmission and faster tires.
What sets this car apart is the choice of special liveries Ferrari is offering for it. Inspired by Froilan Gonzalez’s first victory for Ferrari in the 375 F1 in 1951 at Silverstone, and Fernando Alonso’s win which was the 60th victory, the car comes with a silver commemorative plaque with the signatures of both champs.
You get the 375 F1 livery with a dark red theme reminiscent to that on the Gonzalez’s car and two Ferrari 150° Italia livery inspired by Alonso’s car with front bumpers and mudguards, hood, A-pillars and rear buttresses painted in white and tricolore rear spoiler. The second Italia livery gets less white and no tricolore behind.
All three versions feature aluminum fuel filler cap, Scuderia Ferrari emblem on front wings, 20-inch diamond-finish wheels, Sabelt or Recaro seats in Alcantara and FIA red and blue safety harness.
Pricing and availability of this special Ferrari are yet to be announced.
