The 1960 Argentine Grand Prix was a Formula One motor race held at Buenos Aires on 7 February 1960. This was the last Argentine Grand Prix until 1972, and the last to be held on the No. 4 configuration of the circuit.
The race was won by Bruce McLaren, his second consecutive victory, having won his first at Sebring at the end of the 1959 season. Stirling Moss suffered a suspension failure while leading, and took over Maurice Trintignant's Cooper, but was not scored points for third place as a result of the shared drive, a rule that had been in place since 1958.
Venezuelan driver Ettore Chimeri participated in his only grand prix. He was killed two weeks later driving a Ferrari 250TR in Havana. He would be the first driver from his country in Formula One, and the last until Johnny Cecotto in 1983. It was the only grand prix appearances for Antonio Creus, Alberto Rodriguez Larreta and Roberto Bonomi. It was also the last grand prix appearances for the driver who scored Ferrari's first World Championship race victory, José Froilán González, and experienced American driver Harry Schell, who would be killed during practice for a non-championship race at Silverstone.
