Coinciding with the start of its 60th anniversary relay celebrations, Ferrari is releasing a limited run of 60 special edition 612 Scaglietti Granturismos as its representative car for the occasion. Unique features of the special Ferrari include the one-off two tone paint scheme, highlighting the brand’s racing heritage by mimicking its historical racecars, which featured the same livery.
Also, its electrochromic, panoramic glass sunroof that automatically adjusts transparency depending on external light levels. Inside, a special emblem marking one of 60 historic events, including several Grand Prix World titles won by Ascari and Schumacher, to the launch of groundbreaking models such as the GTO, the F40 and the Enzo.
