2009 Ferrari 599 HGTE (SOLD)

If a regular Ferrari 599 GTB wasn’t quite hardcore enough for you then you went for the Ferrari 599 HGTE option package, comprising a raft of suspension changes making it a sharper and keener drive. The key letter in the package is H, for Handling. GT is for, er, GT, and E for Evoluzione.

The HGTE pack incorporated stiffer springs (which also lower the ride height by 10mm), while there’s a stiffer rear anti-roll bar and a softer compound for the Pirelli P Zero tyres which  run on slightly wider wheels at the front.  There’s a touch of extra camber, too, and revised calibration on the magnetic dampers. An extra sprinkling of carbonfibre makes its way into the cabin, including for the shells of two brilliantly supportive new seats

Power remains unchanged at 611bhp, which we’ve always found ample.

Around town the Ferrari 599 HGTE feels mildly less supple than a regular 599 although it retains an ability to shrug off surface imperfections better than most high-powered GTs or supercars.

On a track the 599 HGTE is beautifully balanced, the HGTE package makes the 599 more approachable; it gives you more confidence get close to its exceptional limits and to push on the throttle harder, for longer.

Bell Sport & Classic are delighted to offer this rare factory specified 599 HGTE pack car, finished in Nero Daytona, with Nero leather & Alcantara.
