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.

How does the
TCC Rating work?
The TCC Rating is a clear numeric rating value based on a 10-point scale that reflects the overall opinion of our automotive experts on any vehicle and rolls up ratings we give each vehicle across sub-categories you care about like performance, safety, styling and more.

Our rating also has simple color-coded “Stop” (red), “Caution” (orange),
or “Go” (green) messages along with the numerical score so you can easily understand where we stand at a glance.

Our automotive experts then also collect and show you what other websites say about these different aspects of any vehicle. We do this leg work for you to simplify your research process.
