Ferrari 599 60F1 - 60 Years of Victories in Formula 1
14th July 1951 – Froilan Gonzalez and the 375 F1 gave Scuderia its very first ever victory in the Formula World Championship in the British Grand Prix at Silverstone.
10th July 2011 – 60 years later, Fernando Alonso gave the Scuderia its first victory of the season aboard the Ferrari 150 Italia.
To celebrate this historic event, Ferrari launched the special 60F1 ’60 Years of Victories in Formula 1’ based on the most powerful car, at the time, of the entire range; the HGTE Package version of the 599 GTB meaning tougher suspension, shorter springs and stiffer anti-roll bars.
Part of the exclusive Tailor Made Programme; the ‘60F1' involved exclusive modifications to both the exterior and cabin with detailing, colours and materials inspired by Gonzalez’s and Alonso’s cars. A choice of three different liveries were available for the exterior;
375 F1 Livery: the same red as Froilan Gonzalez’s 375 F1 is used. This is a historic red used by the Scuderia for its very first Formula 1 cars.
Ferrari 150 Italia Livery; this has the Scuderia 2011 red (Rosso Metallic) livery used for Fernando Alonso’s Ferrari 150 Italia F1 car. The exterior also features Formula 1 white on the lower part of the front bumper and sills, bonnet, A-posts and buttresses. The tricolour featured on the spoiler of the F150 is also represented on the rear nolder.
Ferrari 150 Italia 2 (light) Livery; painted in the Scuderia 2011 red used on Fernando Alonso’s Ferrari 150 Italia F1 car. In this version, however, white is used only on the lower part of the front bumper and there is no tricolour at the rear.
The exterior features shared by the three liveries were;
- Scuderia Ferrari shield on front wheel arches painted as per competition cars.
- Satin-finish aluminium fuel cap.
- 20inch diamond-finish forged wheel rims.
Finished in ‘Ferrari 150 Italia Livery’ this two owner example is a genuine UK supplied car through the official Ferrari Dealer network, first registered 30/10/13, and having only covered a mere total of 145miles. This example has also had the rear buttress signed by Fernando Alonso.
The cabin takes its inspiration from iconic details of both Alonso and Gonzalez’s cars. Extensive use was also made of innovative and technical materials. The result is very much a track car look with dark shades predominating. There are, however, touches of contrasting colour such as in the harnesses and dashboard inserts. The seats are by Sabelt and feature an innovative technical material known as Superfabric which provides superb grip and has been used in the greatest areas of contact with the driver’s body. This is similar to Formula 1 and makes for optimal grip, particularly in extreme driving situations. The seats are upholstered in Nero alcantara and the Scuderia Ferrari logo in stitched onto the headrest. The four-point safety harnesses underscore the racing set-up and are in the Red and Blue specified by FIA for the 2010 – 2011 Formula 1 Championship. Aluminium was used in Gonzalez’s car and this fact inspired a high tech modern reworking that sees Alutex trim on the dashboard. Alutex is an innovative material made of metallic fibres which is extremely tough and light. The Alutex has been given a matt finish that highlights its texture whilst preventing any glare. The remainder of the cabin is also trimmed in lightweight, technical materials; Nero alcantara and technical fabrics. The dashboard also sports a silver plaque commemorating 60 years of Ferrari victories in Formula 1 and features the signatures of Froilan Gonzalez and Fernando Alonso.
