Ferrari 599 GTO – Faster Then An Enzo

There has been talk about this car, spy shots over the net, list of options and tid bits of information. Now its out the official 599 GTO from Ferrari, an Italian race pedigree. They have the 599 GTB Fiorano, then came the track only 599XX, now the barely street legal race car designated the Gran Turismo Omologato or 599 GTO and it brings a lot to the plate.

They managed to shave 195 Kilos from the car bring the curb weight to 1495 KG making leaner and meaner then its original. They bumped the engine output from 612 bhp to 661, a torque bump of 9lb-ft bring it to 457. The GTO modifications aren’t just mechanical, with a rework of the aerodynamics their is a new front splitter, side sills, diffuser, rear spoiler, vented hood as the ten spoke 20-inch rims with F1-derived wheel donuts. All this put together helps this machine sprint from 0 to 62 mph in 3.35 second and top speed of 208 mph. Beating the Enzo on the Fiorano test track by 1 minute and 24 seconds, thats scary. Only 599 of these machines will be made, they will be selling at around $460K, lets see who will be lucky enough to get one. Check out the new configurator by Ferrari.
