2012 Ferrari 599 GTB 60F1 Alonso Edition
Offered by RM Sotheby’s | London, U.K. | November 4, 2023
Ferrari’s 599 GTB was offered for the model years 2007 through 2012. Its first year was when Kimi Raikkonen won the F1 championship for the Scuderia, Ferrari’s most recent championship season. So they were flying high when this car launched.
But by the time it was about to exit production, their F1 world had grown darker, despite the hiring of two-time champion Fernando Alonso. For 2012, they sold about 40 units of this special edition, which was named to celebrate 60 years of winning in F1. It’s associated with Alonso because the announcement came on the heels of his 2011 British Grand Prix victory.
The car is based on the 599 HGTE, meaning it is powered by a 6.0-liter V12 good for 612 horsepower, The HGTE was essentially a handling package with revised suspension details. The estimate here is $240,000-$300,000. For more info, click here.
