Ferrari is commemorating the company’s 60 years of wins in Formula 1 with a special edition of the 599 GTB, named the 60F1, which was recently unveiled.
The Maranello based automaker Ferrari likes Pagani’s marketing scheme and just like its competitor it keeps announcing final editions of its supercars, the latest example being the Ferrari 599 GTB 60F1, a special edition developed to commemorate the company’s 60 years of wins in Formula 1. The manufacturer says that the 599 GTB 60F1 will come in a choice of three liveries, inspired by the first victory obtained by Froilan Gonzalez in the 375 F1 racecar at the 1951 British Grand Prix at Silverstone, and by Fernando Alonso’s win this summer, at the same Silverstone track, which is marking the 60th F1 victory.
The Ferrari 599 GTB 60F1 special edition is painted in the same dark red as Froilan Gonzalez’s 375 F1 racecar, the Ferrari 150 Italia livery mimics the Scuderia 2011 red livery used in Alonso’s Ferrari 150 and it has Formula 1 white on the lower part of the front bumpers, hood, mudguards, A-pillars and on the rear buttresses, while the tricolor has been painted on the rear. The Ferrari 150 Italia 2 livery also comes with the same red color from Alonso’s racecar but the tricolor has been left aside and the white has only been used on the lower bumpers.
All the versions are coming with 20 inch diamond finish forged alloy rims and the seats are upholstered in Alcantara with superfabric inserts and the Scuderia Ferrari logo has been stitched into the headrests. Four-point safety harnesses approved in FIA have also been fitted and the instrument panel has been trimmed in a matte finish alutex.
