Ferrari has been in America for 60 years, and is celebrating the milestone with the (very) limited-run V12 F60America convertible of which just 10 examples will be made. Powered by the V12 engine from the F12 Berlinetta, the F60America will sprint to 100 km/h (62 mph) in just 3.1 seconds.

The car comes with a light fabric roof, but with it closed the vehicle's top speed is limited to 120 km/h (75 mph), meaning the top needs to be open if you want to push the car faster. The convertible boasts leather-trimmed rollover hoops, which are backed by carbon-fiber trimmed flying buttresses that flow into the tail of the car. Meanwhile, a sweeping front grille with chrome finish and integrated air intakes for the brakes dominates up front.

The F60America’s interior trim is designed to provide clear separation between driver and passenger just in case the position of the steering wheel has left anyone guessing. The driver’s side of the car is finished in red, while the passenger area is trimmed in black. Other cabin upgrades include a composite finish on the dash, transmission tunnel and door trims, while the car’s seats have a stylized American flag stitched into the backrest. Traditional blue and white “North American Racing Team” livery finishes the package off.

Restricting production to just 10 vehicles follows the example set by the 1967 275 GTS4 NART Spiderall, with all 10 F60America's having already been snapped up by collectors.
