Today’s second sportscar rumor is about the Ferrari 599! The word is that the Italians are developing a semi stripped-out version of the 599 GTB, which will inherit some of the 599XX’s features, and might even get a GTO badge. The 599 GTB is such a perfect car that apparently the only way Ferrari can improve it is by using their racing know-how.
In essence, 599 GTO will be like the 430 Scuderia. It’ll compromise on luxury, but instead the engine will be a bit more powerful, the chassis will be a bit more precise, the steering will be a bit more accurate and the electronics will be a bit more complicated. And all these bits will result in a big difference. So this car can very well be the ultimate strret-legal track-focused car for the Gentleman racers!
The GTO is expected to have around 700 hp and 0 to 100 km/h acceleration time of 3.2 seconds and top speed of around 350 km/h. As for the price it will be like a $100,000 more than a standard 599. And that’s fine by us as long as it gets a body like the 599XX’s!
