When the Ferrari 599 GTB Fiorano appeared in 2006 as a 2007 model, it combined elegant and curvaceous bodywork with cutting-edge aerodynamics and the powerplant from the Enzo hypercar. The result was called the finest all-round Ferrari ever. Well, up to that point at least.
The Fiorano replaced the 575M Maranello and was powered by the Enzo’s 48-valve, 6.0-liter DOHC V-12, developing 612 bhp at 7600 rpm. Its redline was at a shrieking 8400 rpm. To top it off, the engine was eight percent lighter than the 575’s powerplant. The net result was 0-60 miles per hour in 3.7 seconds and a top speed of 205.
Named for Ferrari’s test track at Fiorano, the 599 wears a Pininfarina-designed body with Jason Castriota credited for some innovative details. While the flying buttresses were initially a styling feature, they were discovered to reduce lift by 100 pounds at high speed during wind tunnel tests. They also eliminated the need for a rear spoiler. The Fiorano’s underbody spoiler, venturi tunnels, and rear diffuser produce 350 pounds of downforce at 186 mph, increasing to 400 pounds by 200 mph.
In 2009 the track-only Ferrari 599XX was launched at the 2009 Geneva Motor Show. Ferrari's Formula 1 engineers aimed to make it more responsive. Details changes included winglets on the C-pillars to increase downforce, hood vents, a carbon fiber rear spoiler, and larger rear diffuser. The interior was stripped and analog gauges replaced by LEDs. A roll-bar and Lexan windows were fitted, while trunk fans sucked the car downwards at speed. The 599XX has nine suspension settings, while numerous carbon fiber items and steel modifications reduced weight. However, air conditioning was retained for driver comfort. The engine was boosted to 720 bhp at 9,000 rpm and Ferrari reported that a 599XX lapped the Nürburgring in a record 6 minutes and 58.16 seconds.
Ferrari followed the 599XX in 2010 with another road-going version called the 599 GTO. Claimed to be the company’s fastest-ever road car, the new GTO lapped the Fiorano circuit one second faster than the Enzo. With a 12-cyl. 5999cc/661hp BMI it can manage 0-60 mph in 3.3 seconds, with a top speed of 208 mph.
