    Was introduced in Oct '14 and is on the Ferrari website. Roadster F12 that carries NART badges and commemorates 60 years of Ferrari in the US. Price was said to be $2.5M and a limited run of 10 units to match the original 10 NART units. Never saw an open hood shot back then so perhaps the extra 38 horses have been around for a while. Would be interesting to know if anyone on FChat is on that list.

    2.5m was the starting point. Most of these cars sold for 3+...

    Those new shields sure are ugly. The car would look a lot better without them, IMO.

    It sort of reminds me of this car, another V12 roadster. Note the blue trim wrapped across the back of the hood. Where have we seen that look recently...

    Yes, absolutely 15965 re-bodied and wonderful in that red which really shows off the design details to good effect. Unfortunately Ferrari gave in to the mid-engine concept by introducing a replacement; the berlinetta boxer. The horse was no longer pulling the cart.
    A future with new body design for the front V12 Daytona was doomed. The 550 Maranello was a long way off back then...

    Wow, I love to learn something new. Can you tell us some more about this one? That is really cool. I agree I see the similarities the F60 America has with this one... 365 GTB/4 NART? This is really great! Thank you.

    Jean Guikas really did an interesting job on this car. Most of the history can be seen in the link you have kindly provided. The NART connection I thought made it a good fit with the more modern homage of the F60. Ferrari has certainly used (some might say plundered) it's history as inspiration for the modern creations...
    I particularly like the blue for the interior and custom design dash, door panels and seat trim.
    Jean also had the Dark Blue / crema early plexi Daytona 'targa' 12925 though he thought of it as an early spyder.
    Thanks!
