An out and out highlight in the recent history of Ferrari, the 599 GTB Fiorano gets its name from the 5,999 cc V12 engine derived from the Enzo at its heart.
A supercar disguised as a Grand Tourer, its V12 is tuned to produce a thumping 612hp, the transmission uses F1 shifting software, the chassis is lightweight all-aluminium and the deliberately driver-centric interior is a mixture of arcade-game fantasy and practicality in one.
With the 0-100 km/h sprint despatched in just 3.2 seconds in comfort, the 599 GTB is one of the most complete GT cars ever produced.
On its launch, motoring media found themselves questioning the need to reach any further up the supercar ladder.
The car offered is an exceptionally well specified Australian delivered 2008 Ferrari 599 GTB ordered in the timeless combination of Rosso Corsa over Tan leather trim and is optioned with:
• Carbon Fiber Daytona Seats
• Carbon Fiber Interior Pack Including Steering Wheel, Paddles, Dash and Console
• Extended Leather Pack Including Parcel Shelf, Headliner and Seats
• Giallo Brake Calipers
• Giallo Instruments

• Front and Rear Parking Sensors
• 20 Inch Matte Black Challenge Stradale Alloys
• Sports Exhaust

Meticulously cared for and travelled just 37,000 kilometres this car recently received a new clutch and major service.
Accompanied by its complete set of original manuals bound within the leather Ferrari wallet this ultimate Grand Tourer perfectly blends a taste of Ferrari’s past with lineage traced to the vaunted 250 SWB and a glimpse into the future of absolute blistering speed.
There are the very quick cars, which can post 0-160km/h times beginning with an eight but anything under eight seconds belongs to an elite group, and in gaining such membership, the Ferrari 599 GTB Fiorano is something quite special.
Experiencing a front-engined V12 Ferrari is like seeing the Beatles live in concert. The sound makes the hairs on the back of your neck stand on end.
A stunning car and a jewel in the crown of one of the greatest automakers this Ferrari 599 GTB Fiorano must be experienced to be believed.
