The 599's engine is derived directly from the Ferrari Enzo, which, just a few years earlier, had been acclaimed as the company's most technologically advanced supercar ever. The GTB can sprint from 0 to 60 in 3.7 seconds and the six-litre, V12 can produce 620bhp at 7,600rpm bringing the car to a speed of 205mph. Its acceleration was faster than the Enzo and even faster than the McLaren F1, partly in thanks to its superb traction control which was initially developed for the Scuderia's Formula One cars. Like its cousin, the F430, the 599 was the second Ferrari to wear the now trademark 'il manettino' dial on the steering wheel. This dial, with its name translating to 'little lever', features five settings to adjust the traction damper settings and to monitor the throttle mapping. This gives the driver the option of having both a docile driver-friendly car or a race set-up with breath-taking performance. Like all modern Ferraris, the 599 is just as luxurious as it is fast. The interior is spacious and comfortable with incredible attention to detail being paid throughout. Carbon fibre and aluminium are utilised on the dash, which features Enzo-styled instruments and a complex LCD display that allows the driver to access a multitude of settings and in-car information. The seats, developed by Recaro, are multi-functional and have adjustable pneumatic support for the passengers' hips and ribs, to provide a tight grip during high-speed road or circuit driving.
This lovely, UK supplied, right hand drive Ferrari 599 GTB was first registered in December 2006. Finished in Grigio Silverstone Metallic it was supplied with a number of options including: Daytona style, full electric sports seats in Nero leather, carbon steering wheel, carbon dash top and seat bases, Nero leather headliner, Nero leather rear parcel shelf, BOSE HiFi system, Cascade Telematic navigation system, iPod connection and electrochromic internal mirror. The equipment to the exterior of the car includes carbon brakes, yellow brake calipers, 20inch Monolitic wheels, rear parking sensors and ‘Scuderia Ferrari’ wing shields.
Having only covered 35,000 miles from new, it has a full-service history with fifteen service stamps in the book from Ferrari main dealers- the last service recently been carried out by Greypaul Ferrari Edinburgh. This very good Ferrari 599 GTB Fiorano F1 is supplied with a V5 registration document, a MoT test certificate which expires in May 2023 and the service book pack. This is an outstanding and sensibly priced 599 which would make a great entry to the amazing world of front engined, V12, two seat Ferraris.
