Ferrari has confirmed it will introduce a limited edition Barchetta based on the 550 Maranello next year. Between 250-500 units of the open-top car will be built. Due to the limited production, the 550 Barchetta will be offered in Europe and in the Far East but won't be homologated for the USA. This will be the third limited edition Ferrari in the past 25 years, after the F40 and F50. Like these predecessors, it will mainly be a collectors' item.
