Created through the extensive use of aluminum, the 2010 Ferrari 599 GTB Fiorano rides over a magnetically-dampened suspension system. Powered by a 6-liter V-12 engine mated to either a dual-clutch 6-speed or a 6-speed manual transmission, the Ferrari 599 GTB Fiorano offers 611 horsepower and 448 pounds-feet of torque. Acceleration from 0 to 62 miles per hour takes just 3.7 seconds through the rear-wheel drivetrain. Available in 15 different interior colors and surfaces, the 2010 Ferrari 599 GTB Fiorano cabin offers Alcantara carpeting and leather seating. Optional equipment includes a Bose HiFi and Racing inspired equipment such as four-point safety harness, cockpit roll-bar and an Enzo Ferrari steering wheel presenting LED shift lights similar to what's found on a Formula 1 car. For even more perfected performance driving, the Ferrari 599 GTB Fiorano adds an optional Handling Gran Turismo Evoluzione (HGTE) package. Providing a stiffer suspension system and a 0.4 inch lower ground clearance, the 2010 Ferrari 599 GTB Fiorano HGTE also features appearance changes such as special 20-inch wheels and a greater use of interior carbon fiber.Read more Read less
The 599 GTB Fiorano replaced the 575M Maranello in Ferrari's lineup in 2006, and it hasn't changed significantly since then, although in typical Ferrari fashion a number of special-edition models have been introduced. Last year, Ferrari introduced an HGTE Handling package, while for this year, the very pricey 599 GTO, a special-built race-homologated 599, bows in a limited run of just 599 examples worldwide.
Head-turning looks; street-legal but track-capable; gorgeous Italian design and luxury
Ferrari has the laws of supply and demand mastered; it always builds far fewer cars than it could sell, leaving those without the means to buy a new one relegated to the late-model used lot while they get in line for one of the new ones. Ferrari owners are more interested in the status that Ferrari ownership gives them and in the sensory experience they get from driving one-- preferably on the track. The 599 GTB is one of the fastest cars available at any price, yet it's surprisingly comfortable. The 599 sports a 0-62 mph time of 3.35 seconds and a top speed of more than 208 mph, yet provides an unparalleled level of style and performance at any price.
