    name uncertain

    -probably a scuderia type version of the 599

    -about 150kg less and +50hp

    -track oriented

    -first private display to dealers and custumers in January

    -official release Geneva

    -shiping to clients bu november 2010

    -limited about 600

    all info gathered from f-chat, few posters over there say, and have posted their pre-orders.

    Speed has never killed anyone, suddenly becoming stationary... That's what gets you.

    Re: new - Ferrari 599 GTO

    From F-Chat:

    The car will be presented at pechino, production number 599 car numerated, 670 cv, price in italy 310-320 000 euro.
    my dealer have seen the car ( white with blu stripes )

    it's not aggressive like the fxx, but a lot more than a standard 599.

    mid february an engineer will come to the dealer for a restricted presentation, customer interested will be invited in maranello 10 days after.

    That's interesting news Smiley Will have some negative impact on resale value of existing 599  though... (resale values are already bad enough, if you ask me)


    Re: new - Ferrari 599 GTO

     They are going after the Murci... Nice. Also they need to open the gap with the 458, too close specs. Dual clutch or F1?


    Re: new - Ferrari 599 GTO

    I don't know really, but I would assume F1.

    Re: new - Ferrari 599 GTO

    It's fast, too; this car can complete one lap of Ferrari’s beloved test track at Fiorano a full 10sec faster than an Enzo.

     

     


    Re: new - Ferrari 599 GTO

    Yea, but its maximum speed is ONLY 196 mph.Who in the hell wants to pay close to two million dollars for a car that cannot exceed 200mph?Smiley

    BTW, Ferrari loves to do R&D on the cheap. They get their clients to pay for it.Smiley

    Nick, I thought that based on your knowledge of Ferrari models you will be able to deferentiate between the 599xxx and the 599 GTO. The GTO will cost between £250-£300k and not $2 million Smiley The GTO is faster than the standard 599 ala 0-60 and top speed !


    Re: new - Ferrari 599 GTO

    I bet Nick was just kidding Italo.

    Re: new - Ferrari 599 GTO

    Some rumors from f-chat :

    0-100km/h - 3,35s

    0-200km/h - 9,8s

    top speed 335km/h


    Re: new - Ferrari 599 GTO

    0-200 time is excellent given than the Enzo needs about 9s! 


    --
    FERRARI RULES!!!

    Re: new - Ferrari 599 GTO

    Official 0-200kmh figure for Enzo was 9,5s. But it did 10,3s in AMS top speed test.

    I wouldnt be surprised if GTO was actually faster despite worse power/weight ratio, due to more advanced gearbox, electronics etc. At least up to 200km/h.


    Re: new - Ferrari 599 GTO

    AMS is a joke mate. I have seen Enzos doing 9s flat for the 0-200 km/h dash...


    --
    FERRARI RULES!!!


    Re: new - Ferrari 599 GTO

    0-200km/h time of 9,0s is impossible for a stock Enzo. This is actually official time for Edo Enzo XX with 840hp.

    I have just checked a few tests and all of them actually indicates 0-200kmh in more than 9,5s. Best result from Car and Driver is about 9,7s and that is on a slightly downhill track.

    0-120mph is closer to 9s of course.

    But I have to agree that AMS results are utter crap sometimes.


    Re: new - Ferrari 599 GTO

    I wouldn't be surprised if the GTO is slightly faster than the Enzo either.. could happen with the technology on board The stock 599 is truly impressive itself already.

    indeed shifting is ancient technology - so is a fuel burning engine..  I happen to like both :)

    Some new info from f-chat :

    0-100 km/h 3.35
    0-200 km/h 9,8
    fiorano lap 1.24
    0-1000m 19,9

    the car is equipped with michelin tires.
    wheels donuts, electronic engineer ( you can see the g in acceleration, lateral ecc)
    599 will be made


    Re: new - Ferrari 599 GTO

    These specs are slightly below those of the Enzo. It seems that Ferrari is doing the sensible thing and won't surpass its iconic supercar until its successor is unleashed.  Having said that... the GTO looks like a proper beast!

     A car based on the 599 platform can never get close to the Enzo. No worries. The 599 (including GTO versions) is just a very fast "truck" Smiley The car lacks the race car genes required for top performance on the track Smiley


    Re: new - Ferrari 599 GTO

    I'm not so sure about that MKSGR, the car only weighs 1485 kg and is a front/mid engine layout, what is stopping it from great track performance? It will likely be faster than the Murcielago SV and other cars in that range.


    Re: new - Ferrari 599 GTO

     @ MKSGR:

    Since you own/owned a 599...based on your recent posts I get the feeling that this must have been a rather disappointing experience. Care to elaborate?

    I always had a week spot for Ferrari's big GTs and thought that the 599 was a masterpiece- at least that was the gist when it came out a couple of years ago.

    Nowadays you can actually buy them used for Turbo money...
