The Ferrari 599XX is a track only beast based on the 599 GTB road car, pitched to potential wealthy owners as a testbed for future Ferrari technology!
The standard 599's 611bhp is increased to around 720bhp (or 740bhp in the 'Evo' version) coming in at the screaming 9000rpm red line. The use of carbon fibre composites help reduce weight by 600 lbs (only the roof and windscreen of the donor 599 GTB remain), while aerodynamic addenda help create 1400 lbs of downforce at 186mph. The 'Evo' adds an active rear wing, which further increases downforce for unbelievable cornering speeds. The result is a 75 second lap of Fiorano and a sub 7 minute lap of the Ring.
Just 33 XXs were produced including 6 original 'Evos' and some upgraded to 'Evo' spec) at a trifiling $1.5 million. Cynics may say it is a blazen cash grabbing exercise by Ferrari, but we suspect none of the 29 super rich owners realy care!
