50 Anni di Passione Tour
Under the motto “50 Years of Passion – One Lap of North America”, a specially prepared 599 Ferrari relay car, sponsored by a private donor, is carrying a symbolic “baton” and is visiting all Ferrari Club of America (FCA) regions and chapters, every Ferrari dealer in the U.S. and Canada. This is a year one-year, 20,000-mile relay of North America and it's coming toPittsburgh for it's public stop before the FCA Annual Meeting!
Leading the One Lap of North America will be a specially prepared Ferrari 599 driven by a volunteer FCA member from each chapter. The relay is led by a special, one-off Ferrari 599GTB-HGTE built specially for Passione. This unique Ferrari, the very last North America specification 599 produced, has been made possible by Jim Taylor, FCA member and Patrono Principale of the FCA’s 50th Anniversary, and by Ferrari North America. The 599 has a unique paint scheme and interior design, as well as custom graphics representing the 50-year history of the FCA.
