THE FERRARI 599 GTO

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. Therefore, 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-liter 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 ton, far eclipsing the 291bhp/ton of its 575 Maranello predecessor. Developed as part of Ferrari's Formula 1 programmed, 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 an 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 favored customers.

THE MOTORCAR OFFERED

This exclusive 599 GTO has had the pleasure of being under the ownership of just one individual, a renowned Southern California based vintage Ferrari collector and enthusiast, for its entire life. Custom ordered, and hand built, at the legendary Maranello-based Ferrari factory in October of 2010 as a 2011 model-year car, the new 599 GTO was finished in new as it appears today, in a stealth black exterior, topped by a sliver roof and red competition-style nose band. The interior was trimmed in the finest black Italian leathers, neatly accented by a red touch to the steering wheel and seats. The potent 670-horsepower Ferrari has been cared for at the highest level and serviced by Ferrari of Newport Beach as necessary. At the time of cataloging, just 7,753 miles were recorded on the odometer, or an average of just over 1,000 miles per year. Factory accessories such as tool kit and gloves, and the factory books and manuals still accompany the well-kept Ferrari. Due to the supercar being sparsely used, both the exterior and interior present with very limited wear.

The 599 GTO, at the time of release, was the fastest road car Ferrari had produced and would lap the Fiorano test track a second faster than the formidable Enzo. With the vehicle being produced in such limited numbers, it will surely continue to be a desired commodity by Tifosi around the world.
