Ferrari F60 America is $2.5 Million Dollar Unicorn

By -

Hauler parking area of Car Week is more impressive than most car shows, including many different Ferrari models.

Monterrey Car Week has come and gone and we have brought you a ton of coverage from the world-renowned, week-long celebration of all things automotive. However, we came across this video of Shmee touring the parking area for all of the haulers for the show vehicles and it is just too interesting to pass up. In this video, we get a look at many of the vehicles from Car Week in one tight area, with everything from antique Mercedes-Benz models to the Ferrari F60 America to the Bugatti Chiron.

In the long run, the fact that we can watch an 11-minute video of the truck parking area shows the quality of the fleet in attendance at Monterrey Car Week. Best of all, Shmee finds a few particularly cool cars as they are being loaded to go home, allowing us to see and hear these multi-million-dollar supercars in action.

The video begins with Tim Burton, better known as Shmee150 on YouTube, explaining that he is at the truck parking area for California Car Week. This area is called the Polo Fields and this is where almost every vehicle that attends a Car Week program is loaded into its trailer before being hauled home. Rather than trying to catch all of these rare and incredible cars on display around Southern California, Shmee finds them all in one convenient location for us to enjoy and since they are being loaded, we get to hear them run as well.

During the course of this video, Shmee finds all sorts of incredible sports cars old and new, but one of the stars of this footage is the Ferrari F60 America. This car is one of ten produced to celebrate Ferrari’s 60th anniversary in the United States, essentially being an F12 convertible with a unique interior and exterior look and a price tag of roughly $2.5-million dollars.

 

We get to see this rare Ferrari early in the video, but around seven minutes in, we get to hear this car move around as it loads onto the trailer.

 

More Ferraris

Shmee is obviously a huge fan of Ferraris and the Polo Fields offer a near-endless bounty of Italian sports cars wearing the Prancing Horse from every era of the company’s existence. We see an F12 TDF, several classic 250s, a 430 16M, an 812 Superfast, a Daytona Spider, a Dino, an antique race car and many, many more that Burton doesn’t identify by name.

 

There is even a Ferrari Modulo, which might be one of the nastiest-sounding cars on the video.

 

Assorted Greatness

Finally, in addition to Burton’s keen focus on the Ferraris in attendance, we get to see and hear a 300SL Gullwing that had been converted into a topless race car, a hypercar from W Motors, a Heritage Edition Ford GT and a truck that is hauling two examples of the Bugatti Chiron.

A lifetime automotive expert, diehard Dodge fan, and respected auto journalist for over 10 years, Patrick Rall is highly experienced in the automotive world. He has clocked in time as an auto mechanic, longtime drag racer and now auto journalist who contributes to nearly a dozen popular websites dedicated to fellow enthusiasts.

“Before I was old enough to walk, my dad was taking me to various types of racing events, from local drag racing to the Daytona 500,” says Rall. “He owned a repair shop and had a variety of performance cars when I was young, but by the time I was 16, he was ready to build me my first drag car: a 1983 Dodge Mirada that ran low 12s. I spent 10 years traveling around the country, racing with my dad by my side. While we live in different areas of the country, my dad still drag races at 80 years old in the car that he built when I was 16. Meanwhile, I race other vehicles, including my 2017 Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat and my 1972 Dodge Demon 340.

“Although I went to college for accounting, my time in my dad’s shop growing up allowed me the knowledge to spend time working as a mechanic before getting my accounting degree, at which point I worked in the office of a dealership group,” adds Rall. “While I was working in the accounting world, I continued racing and taking pictures of cars at the track. Over time, I began showing off those pictures online and that led to my writing.

“Ten years ago, I left the accounting world to become a full-time automotive writer and I am living proof that if you love what you do, you will never ‘work’ a day in your life. I love covering the automotive industry and everything involved with the job. I was fortunate to turn my love of the automotive world into a hobby that led to an exciting career, with my past of working as a mechanic and as an accountant in the automotive world provides me with a unique perspective of the industry.

“My experience drag racing for more than 20 years coupled with a newfound interest in road racing over the past decade allows me to push performance cars to their limit, while my role as a horse stable manager gives me vast experience towing and hauling with all of the newest trucks on the market today.

“Being based on Detroit, I never miss the North American International Auto Show, the Woodward Dream Cruise and Roadkill Nights, along with spending plenty of time raising hell on Detroit’s Woodward Avenue with the best muscle car crowd in the world.”
