Ferrari 599 GTB Fiorano Models and 599 GTB Fiorano History
Becoming Ferraris flagship two-seater for the 2007 model year, the 599 GTB Fiorano represented peak performance in the Italian sports car builders line-up. The flagship for Ferrari, the 2007 599 GTB Fiorano received a host of technological refinements including SCM Magnetorheological suspension and the debut of F1-Trac (a sophisticated traction control management system tailored to improved performance).
A V-12 engine, an acknowledged hallmark of Ferrari sports cars, served as the power unit for the 599. An aluminum 6.0-liter twelve-cylinder engine was one of the most powerful naturally aspirated powerplants ever installed in a production vehicle. Generating 612 horsepower and 448 pound-feet of torque, the gasoline engine for the 2007 Ferrari 599 Fiorano channeled power through a six-speed manual transmission. One year following the Ferrari 599s introduction, a number of enhancements were added to the twelve-cylinder supercar. An F1-SuperFast transmission option was added to the 2008 Ferrari 599 GTB Fiorano line-up delivering rapid paddle shifting in 40 milliseconds. Also for 2008, the previously optional carbon-ceramic brakes were promoted to standard equipment on the 599 GTB Fiorano.
Capable of traveling up to 205 miles per hour, the 599 GTB Fiorano can achieve acceleration from 0 to 62 miles per hour in 3.7 seconds. Inside the two-passenger interior of the 599 GTB Fiorano, a multitude of high-end handcrafted touches accent the cabin. Leather sport seating as well as interior panels constructed of aluminum and carbon fiber gave the flagship Ferrari a heavy dose of personality. Ferrari also offered many options for owners to individualize the 599 GTB Fiorano. After the 2010 model year, the F12berlinetta replaced the 599 GTB Fiorano.
An exotic Italian grand touring high-performance sports car, the 2008 Ferrari 599 GTB Fiorano is powered by a 6.0L V12 making 612 hp and the available F1-sourced paddle-shifted six-speed manual transmission shifts faster than you can blink.
