The Ferrari 550 and 575 heralded the revival of the golden age of the front-engined V12 Ferrari, after a long absence since the 365 GTB/4 Daytona. The logical successor of the 575, the 599 GTB ‘Fiorano’, debuted in the 2006 Geneva Motor Show as a 2007 model, and took its nomenclature from its engine displacement of 5.99 litres —heritage of the Ferrari Enzo.
Conceived as a grand tourer, the 599 GTB did not skimp on performance: the timing-chain V12 made over 600bhp, and took the heavy coupe from 0 to 100kmph in 3.7 seconds, to a top speed over 330kmph. Numerous advances in aerodynamics (hence the interesting buttresses in the back), a gearbox developed with F1 technology, magnetorheological suspension, and an advance aluminium chassis, contributed to the 599 GTB’s sophisticated road manners.
A track-focused, limited version was announced in April 2010. Limited to only 599 cars, the 599 GTO boasted more horsepower, less weight, and a faster lap time around Ferrari’s Fiorano circuit that the Enzo. Following the magical GTO nomenclature of the 250 GTO and 288 GTO, the 599 was the third Ferrari model to ever be labeled with this legendary nameplate.
This particular car is a completely original, single-owner Gulf Specification car, and it is finished in a seductive black-on-black spec with plenty of carbon and ‘extra campionario’ alcantara options. Sporting less than 10,000 kilometres in the odometer, full accessories and services up to date, this 599 GTO is nothing short of the perfect modern Ferrari to invest and enjoy.
