2007 Ferrari 599 GTB Fiorano Page 1

Unveiled in November of 2006, the 612-horsepower 599 GTB is Ferrari's highest-performance V-12 production car to date. It is capable of reaching 60 mph in 3.7 seconds and has a top speed of more than 200 mph. The 6.0-liter V-12 is derived from the 65-degree, 650-horsepower V-12 used in the million-dollar Ferrari Enzo -- civilized just enough to make it viable as an everyday driver. Just 250 or so of these will be built annually. The 599 features carbon-ceramic brakes, a body that produces 400 pounds of downforce at 186 mph, an "F1-Trac" stability/traction control system with multi-mode settings to control wheelspin (including a "race" mode for skilled drivers able to exploit the car's incredible capabilities), electro-magnetic active suspension (similar to the Corvette's, but more exotic, with Ferrari's propriety programming) and available F1-SuperFast paddle shifted six-speed manual transmission (a standard six-speed gearbox is available as well). The two-seat exotic sports car is not entirely impractical, however. In addition to its race-car mechanicals, the 599 also features an 11.3 cubic-foot trunk and comes standard with both air conditioning and a high-end audio system.
