    'The 599 GTO is one of the absolute finest track cars ever made. That it delivers some tactile qualities on the road – plus it's very habitable, make it a supreme all-rounder. 'What is also evident is the GTO pulls as hard in fifth as a 911 does in third.' – Autocar.

    Announced in April 2010, the 599 GTO was only the third Ferrari to carry the evocative 'Gran Turismo Omologato' designation, the others being the 250 GTO and 288 GTO. A road-going version of the track-only 599 XX, the latest GTO came with 671bhp on tap and weighed almost 100kg less than the standard 599 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 (208mph). Front-engined, the 599 GTO was the fastest road-going Ferrari at the time of its introduction, proving capable of lapping the Italian firm's Fiorano test track almost a second quicker than the mid-engined Enzo.

    The increase in engine output - some 59 horsepower more than the 500 GTB - had been achieved in part by reducing the engine's internal friction, plus an increase in compression ratio and redesigned intake and exhaust arrangements. Despite this, the GTO was still able to meet Euro 5 emissions standards and, unlike the 599 XX, could be looked after by any Ferrari dealer.

    The transmission too had come in for revision, shifting more quickly than that of the GTB, while second-generation magnetorheological dampers and the latest traction control system all made for quicker lap times, as did the reduction in weight. Contributing to the latter was a hydro-formed exhaust manifold, thinner windows, an aluminium boot lid, and forged alloy wheels; while inside the cabin, carpeting was replaced by rubber mats and carbon fibre seats installed. Carbon ceramic disc brakes were employed all round, gripped for the first time by carbon pads. GTO production was limited to only 599 cars, which were reserved exclusively for Ferrari's most favoured customers.

    Representing a rare opportunity to acquire a low-mileage, right-hand drive, UK-market example, chassis number '181050' was delivered on 28th June 2011 and has covered only 3,600 miles from new. Presented in immaculate condition, it is finished in Rosso Corsa with Nero roof and Grigio alloy wheels, just like the launch cars. The interior is equipped with an Alcantara-trimmed roll cage and four-point safety harnesses, and is upholstered in beige leather with black inserts. The accompanying service booklet records four visits to main dealers for routine servicing, the most recent occasion being in January 2018 at 3,492 miles.

    Ferrari pulled off a rare trick with the 599 GTO, creating a truly versatile car that is as exciting on the racetrack as it is civilised on the road. There can be little doubt that this modern icon will be a collectible future classic, and few would disagree with Autocar's conclusion: 'This is a genuine landmark car for Ferrari... a bona fide addition to the GTO family, make no mistake'.
