Vehicle Description
2008 (58) Ferrari 599 GTB

The Ferrari 599 offers mind-blowing pace and handling. Quite possibly the best Ferrari of its generation

Nero Daytona with Nero /Rosso Daytona seats contrast stitched in red and Rosso carpets.

In theory, it is possible to trace the 599’s heritage to the very first front-engined Ferrari road car, but in truth its lineage begins with the legendary 250 GT SWB and Lusso of the 1960s.

Fast, dramatic machines with impossibly long bonnets continued as Ferrari flagships through the 275GTB and Daytona until the company chose a mid-engined format for its range-topping 12-cylinder road cars from the mid-1970s to the late 1990s.

The 599 replaced the 575 in the summer of 2006 and brought the front-engined V12 Ferrari slap bang into the modern age. Whereas the 550 and 575 always felt like modern classics, the 599 was every inch a new-age Ferrari: all-aluminium chassis, plenty of glossy carbon fibre, F1 SuperFast gearbox, F1-Trac stability and traction control, magnetic semi-active dampers and carbon-ceramic brakes, all wrapped in aggressive, aero-optimised bodywork with minimal overhangs and maximum presence.

Top billing, though, went to the engine – a lightly modified version of the Enzo’s 6-litre V12 with a mighty 611bhp at 7600rpm, endowing Ferrari’s new series-production flagship with truly sensational performance: 0-60 in 3.5sec, 0-100 in 7.4 and 205mph.

Though a strict two-seater, the 599 is a big car, more at home on wide, sweeping tarmac than cross-country lanes. Think super-GT rather than super-sports. The upside is a spacious cabin and a very decent boot.

Fast and unbelievably capable, yet compliant and spacious there isn’t another GT that comes close to matching the exceptional breadth of the 599 GTB’s ability, nor the richness of the experience.
