Special edition Ferrari to celebrate 60th anniversary
Based on the 612 Scaglietti, Ferrari will build a series of 60 handcrafted, unique cars in celebration of this year's 60th birthday for the company.
The cars will be offered with a two-tone livery in a combination of classic Ferrari colours, the interior appointments will feature unique colour coordinations and a stunning new-generation electrochromic glass roof, itself a major innovation. The degree of opacity of the roof can be adjusted to suit the occupants’ requirements.
To underline the exclusivity of this series of one-offs, each example will also boast an enamelled symbol set on the central tunnel representing one of the 60 historic events chosen to celebrate the Marque’s anniversary.
