Ferrari 599 GTB

Ferrari 599 GTB

Styled by Italian car design firm Pininfarina, the 2010 Ferrari Fiorano 599 GTB is a high-performance, exotic two-passenger gran turismo. It’s Ferrari’s most powerful V12 and one of themightiest performers in the exotic sports car class. "The Ferrari sweeps through broader emotional extremes - soft and sweet now, hard and fast when provoked - revealing the wild Italian temptress within," writes Automobile Magazine. "The amazing thing is how the 599GTB is able to embrace every situation with an astute blend of confidence and competence."
The 2010 Ferrari Fiorano 599 GTB’s name is a combination of its engineering and styling heritage. While the 599 stands for its engine’s displacement of 5,999 cc, GTB is short for “Gran Turismo Berlinetta” or “grand touring hardtop” in Italian. According to, “The Ferrari 599 GTB Fiorano borrows its name from the [Fiorano] test track where Ferrari tests both its road cars and Formula 1 racers, and it’s designed to bring F1 to the streets.”
Ferrari set out to create a supercar and that’s exactly what the 2010 Fiorano 599 GTB is. Critics report that this engineering masterpiece is fast, powerful, upscale and altogether satisfying. "Front-engine, grand-touring machines have a fairly specific pecking order, and the 599 is already on top, trumping most of its competitors in power or handling, if not both," writes Car and Driver.
