Ferrari 599 GTB 60F1 Edition

Ferrari is to launch a limited edition version of the 599 GTB – the 599 GTB 60F1 – to celebrate 60 years in Formula One.

Ferrari has been there since the beginning of F1, which makes Silverstone 2011 the 60th anniversary of Formula One, and to celebrate Ferrari is to release a limited edition model – the Ferrari 599 GTB 60F1.

Based on the HGTE package available for the regular Ferrari 599 – which means stiffer springs and dampers, a bigger stabilizer bar at the back, bigger rubber and lowered suspension – the 599 GTB 60F1 is part of Ferrari’s Tailor Made programme (which does what it says on the tin).

There’s a choice of three 60F1s on offer; one to celebrate Froilan Gonzalez’s first win at Silverstone on 1951 in the 375 F1, one to celebrate Fernando Alonso’s win at Silverstone this year and a third edition which also uses the Ferrari 150 livery.

The Gonzales tribute 60F1 will come in the same Ferrari dark red as the original car, the first of the 150 cars will come in Scuderia 2011 Red with F1 White on the bottom of the front bumpers, behind the front wheel arches, bonnet stripes and the A-pillars and rear buttresses. The second 150 variant will get white just on the bottom of the front bumpers.

All three cars get Scuderia Ferrari Shields and a satin finish fuel filler cap, and there are two different interiors, one by Sabelt for the European version and one by Recaro for the North American cars.

The details of the 599 GTB 60F1 have come from Inside Line, and the photos in the gallery below are low res. But we’ll update them as soon as Ferrari release the goof ones.
