The Ferrari 599 GTO is the fastest road-going car ever created by the famous Prancing Horse marque but despite the car’s prowess the automaker has only released a measly five images of its stunning beauty. That is until today, as we now have a new mega-gallery revealing every inch of the latest supercar to hail from Maranello.
As mentioned, the 599 GTO is Ferrari’s fastest ever road car. Not surprisingly, it set a record lap time at the Fiorano circuit of just 1m 24s. It is an exclusive limited edition special which, in true Ferrari tradition, is a completely new concept, albeit inspired by the 599XX experimental car.
To achieve this status, the regular 599 GTB’s venerable 6.0-liter V-12 engine was uprated to 670 horsepower and the car put on an extensive weight saving program to bring the final kerb weight down to 3,296 pounds. This resulted in an acceleration time for the 0-62 mph sprint of 3.35 seconds and a top speed in excess of 208 mph.
The 599 GTO will be built in a limited run of just 599 cars and sadly, the full production run has already been accounted for. For all the specs, check out our original preview story by clicking here.
