An outright highlight in the recent history of the artful automaker, the 599 GTB shows that Ferrari is still more than able to build a cracking all-rounder that can shake the established order like nothing else.
Featuring the fabled Enzo’s 6.0 litre V12 engine reformatted for GT specification and tuned to produce a thumping 612hp, the latest super-fast F1 shift software, an all-new all-aluminium chassis and deliberately driver-centric interior with a mixture of arcade-game fantasy and practical instrumentation the 599 GTB is the most complete GT car 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 Fiorano ordered in the timeless combination of Nero Daytona over two-tone Tan/Black leather trim and uniquely optioned with:
• Carbon Fibre Interior Pack 2 including; centre console, dash, F1 paddles and steering wheel
• Full Power RECARO Seats
• Extended Leather Pack including; parcel shelf, headliner and seats
• Rosso Brake Calipers
• Giallo Instrumentation
• Scuderia Racing Shields
• Rear Parking Sensors
• 20 Inch Challenge Stradale Ball Polished Alloys
Meticulously maintained and travelled just 24,195 kilometres with a Ferrari service history this 599 GTB is unrivalled.
Accompanied by its complete set of original manuals bound within the leather Ferrari wallet, its original tool-kit and both factory keys 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.
Its 7.4sec 0-160km/h average matches supercars like the Pagani Zonda S but with uncompromised comfort and style the 599 GTB does Clark Kent as well as it does Superman.
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, the feeling of its sheer acceleration is white knuckled and it also represents the end of an era for totally driver-focused engineering.
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.
