Footnotes

  • Introduced at the Geneva Motor Show in February 2006, the 599 GTB Fiorano was the first of Ferrari's 599 family. Taking its name from Ferrari's famous test track, it was the latest in a succession of models named after places associated with the marque such as Modena and Maranello. Its immediate predecessor - the 575 Maranello - had met with a mixed reception, disappointing those that had so admired the 550 Maranello, so Ferrari had some catching up to do in designing the 599.

    The heart of any Ferrari is its engine, and the 599's 48-valve, 6.0-litre V12 was a reworked version of that found in the Enzo supercar. As installed in the 599, this state-of-the-art unit produced a staggering 612bhp at 7,600rpm with maximum torque of 448lb/ft at 5,600 revs. Weighing a claimed 1,690kg, the 599 has a power-to-weight ratio of 362bhp per tonne, far eclipsing the 291bhp/tonne of its 575 Maranello predecessor. Developed as part of Ferrari's Formula 1 programme, the paddle-shift gearbox had become a feature of its range-topping sports cars and was in its latest form for the 599. A conventional six-speed gearbox was available also.

    Although active suspension had long been banned from Formula 1, its development for road cars had continued and the 599 came equipped with SCM magnetorheological 'semi-active' dampers. The latter's damping fluid changes in viscosity almost instantaneously when a magnetic field is applied, thereby altering the suspension characteristics. Damper controls were placed on the Formula 1-style steering wheel together with those for traction control and stability, as was the starter button. The 599's fortunate driver would find him/herself looking at a central analogue rev counter flanked by a similar speedometer and an electronic display screen for all other functions. Ferrari thoughtfully provided plentiful storage space within the sumptuous leather-trimmed interior.

    In April 2010, Ferrari announced the 599 GTO, a road-going version of the track-only 599 XX. Reviving a evocative model designation from Ferrari's past, the new GTO came with 661bhp on tap and weighed almost 100kg less than the standard GTB, a combination that delivered a 0-100km/h time of less than 3.3 seconds and a top speed in excess of 335km/h. Production was limited to 599 cars, which were reserved exclusively for Ferrari's most favoured customers.

    The fabulous and exclusive Ferrari supercar offered here was delivered new to Taiwan via Cornes, the official Ferrari importer in Japan. Finished in white with black/red interior, it has covered only 5,964 kilometres from new and is presented in commensurately excellent condition. Noteworthy features include aluminium brake callipers, carbon fibre headlight buckets, Alcantara upholstery, navigation system, iPod connection, carbon fibre racing seats, and a white rev counter. There is service history on file recording services in 2011, 2013, and 2015, and the car also comes complete with tool kit and a factory data sheet.
