Ferrari 599 GTB Fiorano prepares for a facelift

Article by Christian Andrei, on August 29, 2010

It has been three years since the Ferrari 599 GTB Fiorano replaced the 575M Maranello and it is time for a restyling, which is anticipated to be principally centered on the front section of the car, aiming at giving the car an edgier, more current appearance.

Larger and more aggressive air intakes are to be expected, together with California-inspired adjustments around the grill. There won't be lots of power boosting require since the 599's basic 611hp (456kW) power yield is already sufficient enough.

The 599 HGTE, which was revealed just of late, offers a foretaste of the new direction Ferrari is most likely to go with regards the styling of the standard 599, with flares and mesh grill-work that is bolder, but nothing extreme or flashy.

Power boosting will be reserved for the likes of the 599XX and any production model that may result from that program. Also showcased at the Geneva Auto Show, the experimental car produces 700hp (522kW) at a remarkable 9,000rpm.

More details of the 599 will surely be coming out as the car received more improvements toward its introduction late this year or early next year.

During the design process for the Ferrari 599 GTB Fiorano, the sports car maker considered a number of specific objectives, one of which is to exceed the incredible driving pleasure delivered by iconic Ferrari models like the F40.

Moreover, Ferrari also aimed to ensure that the 599 GTB Fiorano is able to deliver superior comfort, interior space, safety and ergonomics.

Ferrari also sought to make the 599 GTB Fiorano offer a dazzling performance, especially that the new V12 model features cutting-edge content as well as an array of technology taken from the sports car maker’s Formula One racers.

Realizing these objectives has allowed the Italian super brand to achieve an exceptional feat in terms of pure Ferrari technology and sportiness.
