The 599 Fiorano's successor will make its debut at the Geneva Motor Show in March, Ferrari confirmed. This vehicle is rumored to be the F620 GT. The rear-wheel drive grand tourer is the latest addition in the automaker's long lineup of front-engined V12 GT vehicles that started with the 166 Inter of 1948. Rumor has it that the vehicle features around 700 horsepower.
This is approximately twice the power of the 365 GTB/4, which Brock Yates and Dan Gurney popularly drove to cross the country in 35 hours and 54 minutes in 1971. The automaker's announcement of the vehicle's debut comes after it confirmed a successor to the Enzo that boasts of 920 hp from a warmed-up variant of the new GT's engine and a KERS hybrid system.
Complemented with the launch of the revitalized California, which will also be revealed at the Geneva motor show, the FF (introduced last year) will become the untended nag in Enzo's stable. Last September, a convertible version of the 458 was launched at the Frankfurt Motor Show.
Beautiful like a work of art, the Ferrari 599 GTB's elegance will leave people breathless. Supple, magnificent with clear lines and a sophistication that belies its technological achievements -- this is a vehicle capable of melting the iciest heart.
A glimpse inside reveals a deeply intimate affair but one which is also racy like a sports car and edgy with hints of its power. Exquisite handcrafted details run throughout and will propel the Fiorano name to soon become synonymous with quality as those taking the time to look therein will find a gorgeous leather trim and the high spec use of carbon-fibre and aluminium.
