SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: On December 7, 2016, NHTSA published a 
notice (at 81 FR 88318) that it had received a petition to decide that 
nonconforming model year (MY) 2013 and 2014 Ferrari F12 Berlinetta 
passenger cars (PCs) are eligible for importation into the United 
States. The notice solicited public comments on the petition and stated 
that the closing date for comments is January 6, 2017.
    This is to notify the public that NHTSA is extending the comment 
period on this petition, and allowing it to run until February 6, 2017. 
This extension is based on a request dated December 21, 2016, from 
Ferrari North America, Inc., and Ferrari SpA,

[[Page 901]]

(collectively ``Ferrari'') the vehicle's manufacturer. Ferrari stated 
that in its view an extension was needed because a portion of the 
comment period will be lost due to the holidays (during which time 
Ferrari SpA's facilities will be closed), and because of the complexity 
of the technical analysis necessary to evaluate the petition and 
prepare any comments. Ferrari requests this extension especially with 
regard to FMVSS No. 208 conformance--in particular, the passenger-side 
airbag weight sensing system.
    Ferrari also stated its view that an extension of the comment 
period will not prejudice the parties or cause undue delay, but will 
afford Ferrari the opportunity to fully evaluate the petition in order 
to determine the appropriate content of any Ferrari comments.
    NHTSA has granted Ferrari's request. All comments received before 
the close of business on the closing date indicated above will be 
considered, and will be available for examination in the docket at the 
above address both before and after that date. To the extent possible, 
comments filed after the closing date will also be considered. Notice 
of final action on the petition will be published in the Federal 
Register pursuant to the authority indicated below.

    Authority: 49 U.S.C. 30141(a)(1)(A), (a)(1)(B), and (b)(1); 49 
CFR 593.7; delegation of authority at 49 CFR 1.95 and 501.8.
