Ferrari has leaked some bits of information and an image of its 599 successor on various Internet sites. The super car maker released a darkened photo through its Ferrari.com Web page, and video through its media site. Ferrari, however, released just a few details about the 599 successor, which is speculated to be dubbed as the F620 GT.
The 599 successor will be a 12-cylinder grand-touring vehicle, and will have a power rating that might be higher than the current 599’s 612 hp. Ferrari is expected to announce details of the successor on February 29, a leap day. The 599 successor’s first teaser video shows clips of the car driving though the Fiorano circuit in Italy. The clips showed the 599 successor’s well-camouflaged body and a bit of the interior. A subsequent video released Thursday shows the 599 successor being assembled at a Ferrari plant, in all its naked greatness – in unpainted metal.
Ferrari’s new 599 GTB Fiorano is a stunning and sculptural car, featuring a very supple design where every new angle brings new elements to light. The car’s form indicates a harmonious balance between extreme sportiness and unique sophistication.
Moreover, the interior also showcases a sense of safety and intimacy that can only be achieved through detailed personalization and skilled handcrafting. Its passenger areas have luxurious leather trimming while the driver’s area and the controls feature a more high-tech detailing in aluminium and carbon-fiber. Aside from its steering wheel and manettino, the car also has a central rev counter with yellow or red background, as well as solid aluminium passenger controls. What’s more, the new 599 GTB Fiorano features attractive new styling cues that include central grip in order to provide extra passenger support as well as adaptive new racing seats with carbon-fiber side rests.
