The Ferrari 599 (also known as 599 GTB Fiorano) is a grand tourer manufactured and marketed by Ferrar, an Italian car manufacturer, from 2006 to 2012. Originally introduced in 2006 as a 2007 model year replacement for the Ferrari 575M Maranello, the F12berlinetta replaced the Ferrari 599 in 2013 as the brand's front-engined, two-seater vehicle.

History of Ferrari 599

Ferrari 599 GTB Fiorano (2006 - 2012)

The Prancing Horse brand never sought to change anything about the cars it made in Maranello; each one had its unique personality. This may be why the brand was so well-liked. It was more of a supercar than a Granturismo when Ferrari unveiled the GTB Fiorano in 2006 to replace the old 575M Maranello. We can all admit that even though this was far from a record-breaking automobile, it was always the one to beat. The 599 took on the responsibility of becoming the standard for all other supercars in the world in 2006 and carried it as fast as possible.

Ferrari 599 GTO (2010 - 2012)

As of 2010, Ferrari's 599 supercar was available in the Gran Turismo Omologata (GTO) configuration, costing roughly 30% more than the standard 599 GTB. The Ferrari brand's racing heritage is inseparable from its road cars. Italian engineers constantly create track-only supercars and convert them for everyday use on the road. In the case of the 599 GTO, this was the case for certain models, but not all of them. Ferrari built the GTO with racing in mind in the wake of the 599 GTB's failures. The car manufacturer reduced weight by around 220 lbs (100 kg), improved grip, increased power, and aerodynamics.

Interior Features of Ferrari 599

The 599's leather-trimmed inside was a lovely touch. Ferrari shifted the driver's seat slightly to the center to give a more comfortable driving stance. There were analog gauges and LCD panels in the instrument cluster. Depending on preference, the shift paddles might be aluminum or carbon fiber attached to the steering column. The company placed the car's electrical systems and the starting button within the steering wheel's three spokes. The interior features include a door panel storage, glove box, and a simple dial/button combo to manage the climate control, audio, and air conditioning. The automobile has enough room in the trunk with a rear shelf and a boot lid.

Exterior Features of Ferrari 599

The Pininfarina design studios were responsible for most of the 599 GTB Fiorano's components. Ferrari flanked the model in the front of the apron by a set of side air-intakes necessary to condition the carbon-ceramic disc brakes. Venturi tunnels and an underbody spoiler help increase downforce on the 599. For additional downforce, C-pillar arches with a "flying buttress" design help direct the wind away from the rear section, hence removing the need for a different rear wing. Initially, Jason Castriota used the buttresses as a style experiment for the model's exterior. Their impact on aerodynamics was demonstrated in wind tunnel tests by Ferrari aerodynamicist Luca Caldirola. Power domes ran from the nose to the windshield on the hood, separating two exhaust vents.
The designer included additional extractor vents beneath the wheel arches to lessen the lift effect caused by the wheel wells.


Ferrari 599 delivers 612 hp (456 kW) at 7,600 rpm and 448 lb-ft (608 Nm) of torque at 5,600 rpm. This model accelerates from 0-60 mph (97 kph) in 3.2 seconds with a top speed of 208 mph (335 kph) and different curb weights for various models:

  • GTB - 3,953 lbs (1,793 kg)
  • HGTE - 3,922 lbs (1,779 kg)
  • GTO - 3,850 lbs (1,746 kg)

Ferrari manufactured the 599 as a rear-wheel-drive (RWD) model in 6-speed manual and 6-speed 'F1' automated manual transmissions. Ferrari powered the model with a 6.0L F140 C/CE V12 engine.
