Ferrari 599 GTO Pictures and Specifications
13 Apr, 2010
Based on the track-only 599XX, The 599 GTO replaces the Enzo as Ferrari's fastest road car with a record lap time of 1’24” at Ferrari's own Fiorano test track.
The 599 GTO is powered by a 671hp V12 with a maximum torque of 457 lb-ft @ 6500 rpm. 0-60mph comes in 3.2 seconds and acceleration continues all the way up to 208mph.
Fundamental to the GTO’s performance is the innovative approach to chassis development which, for the first time on a production car, saw the integration between a handling set-up tuned for a level of responsiveness that is close to the limit and highly sophisticated electronic controls. The result is the almost complete absence of understeer and a truly communicative chassis.
As is Ferrari’s policy, every new Ferrari features new solutions for a road car. Thus the 599 GTO is equipped with the latest, second-generation carbon-ceramic brakes which are lighter and offer better performance, new aerodynamic innovations, such as the wheel doughnuts which increase aerodynamic efficiency as well as improve brake cooling, and the Supersport tyres developed by Michelin include a wider front tyre for greater roadholding. The driver-car interface is also new with the adoption of the Virtual Race Engineer (VRE) which provides the driver with instantaneous information on performance.
Only 599 will be made
