It will soon be Christmas morning for a number of Ferrari's most important US collectors. The Italian rocket-builder is celebrating its 60th North American anniversary with a very special car, the F60 America. Taking it back to the '50s and '60s, Ferrari is bringing back the tradition of created limited edition, build-to-order cars and we can only imagine the F60 is just the tip of the iceberg.

Only 10 will be produced and every single one has already been sold. The V12-powered roadster will feature a striking red cockpit that is wrapped in composite materials and features a black passenger side and a red driver's side which is inspired by Ferrari's vintage racing cars.
