2008 Ferrari 599 GTB Fiorano
Full throttle classics is proud to present this 1 of 1 ferrari 599 gtb. At just 2,300 original miles, this 2008 Ferrari 599 is a splendid example of the car that re-established the front-engined V-12 as Maranellos flagship automobile and shone fresh light on Ferraris partnership with Pininfarina as one of the great collaborations in automotive history. From a technological standpoint, the 599 represents a radical approach to engineering in the context of the time. Ferraris proven expertise in aluminum-construction techniques enabled extensive use of its patented alloy in the 599s chassis and body, which were designed in cooperation with Alcoa specialists. Aluminum also forms most of the cars front and rear wishbone-suspension components, most of which are identical to those of the 612 Scaglietti. The 599GTBs Enzo-derived 48-valve 6.0L V-12 engine churns out 612 HP and 448 lb-ft of torque, translating into a 0-60 MPH time of 3.6 seconds and a top speed of 205 MPH. With the V-12 placed entirely behind the front axle, this superb 599GTBs tightly packaged drivetrain terminates in the optional F1 Superfast 6-speed transaxle that shifts in 150 milliseconds when in Corsa or race mode. Four other settings are available to suit any road conditions, one of which shuts down the F-Track magnetorheological-suspension system to allow complete driver control. Pininfarina designers approached the 599GTB intent on sculpting an innovative envelope that would retain all the signature elements of Ferraris past flagship road cars while inducing cutting-edge aerodynamics and downforce. The cabin was set far back to accommodate the driveline packaging, producing an at speed silhouette. The wraparound rear window is flanked by flying buttresses that channel air to the rear spoiler, which adds downforce to that already generated by the efficient rear diffuser. Finished with a leather interior with carbon-fiber trim, Scuderia shields, Pirelli P-Zero tires on polished-aluminum wheels and carbon-ceramic brakes with yellow calipers, this all-white 2008 Ferrari 599 GTB Fiorano is loaded with more than $75,000 of factory options, and the engine compartment is autographed by the Ferrari factory technicians.
