Ferrari says 60th US anniversary would be celebrated with “special” model image

The Italian exotic supercar manufacturer has announced it plans to celebrate 60 years of presence on the US market with a “special” model to be unveiled later on in October.

Ferrari has been keeping this fact very low profile, slipping it inside the release that focuses on the financial results for the first six months of 2014. It’s no wonder they’re trying to be mysterious, since this week the brand has been surrounded by the implications of the huge change at top – its Chairman, Luca di Montezemolo, left the company after clashing with parent Fiat Chrysler Automobiles Sergio Marchionne.

“To celebrate Ferrari’s 60th year in the USA, we have developed a special car of which just 10 examples will be built, in addition to planning a major event in Los Angeles to bring together all our American clients and collectors, and a charity initiative,” says outgoing Chairman di Montezemolo.

Unfortunately, no further information is available about the new limited series model, save for the fact that only ten will be assembled. On the other hand, Ferrari proudly presented its half-year financial results, which are massively positive.

Ferrari had revenues of 1,348.6 million euro (+14.5%), with a trading profit that climbed 5.2% to 185 million euro and a net income surge of around 10% to 127.6 million euros.
