To celebrate the success of the Ferrari brand in Formula 1 for the past 60 years, the company has decided to launch a special edition of the 599 GTB. The new model, called 599 GTB 60F1, will be made available through Ferrari’s new Tailor Made program.
Three “liveries” will be available for the 60F1, each inspired by some significance in the Scudueria’s involment with the sport. The first finish is based on the same dark crimson hue that Froilan Gonzalez’s 375 F1 was painted in when Ferrari first won at the 1951 British Grand Prix at Silverstone.
To honour the marque’s 60th victory (also at Silverstone), the second livery package will be based on Fernando Alonso’s 150 Italia – with white touches on the front bumper, front fenders and roof arch, as well as the tricolour on the rear. The 150 Italia 2 livery is based on the same package, but limits the white paint to the bumpers and eliminates the tricolour.
But the 60F1 is not just a styling exercise – it also gets the stiffer springs, thicker rear stabilizer bar and stickier rubber over the 20-inch alloys from the HGTE package. Inside, the 60F1 boasts Sabelt (European) or Recaro (American) Alcantara and superfabric-finished seats with four-point harnesses. A commemorative plaque bearing the signatures of Alonso and Gonzalez is housed on the facia.
