The Ferrari 599 GTB FIORANO debuted at the Geneva Motor Show in February 2006. It takes its name from the Fiorano Circuit Ferrari uses to hone the performance of its track and road cars. â€˜GTB' stands for â€˜Gran Turismo Berlinetta' and â€˜599' is the displacement of the V12 engine divided by 10.
The car was designed with several objectives in mind: to increase driving pleasure, to guarantee performance and to ensure comfort, ergonomics and safety. It is a concentration of Ferrari's most innovatively and technologically advanced engineering solutions applied on a front engined two-seat berlinetta. The all-aluminum construction technology for the body and chassis made it extra light combined with the powerful engine which produces 620 hp at 7,600 rpm.
A mixture of soft curves, sharp creases and a few challenging details that take a little time to fully appreciate, the body of the car integrated the advanced aerodynamic solutions and performance figures with a beautiful Pininfarina design.
The car represented an interpretation of the V12 berlinetta; a theme recalled a memory of the classic 250 GT, the 275 GTB and the 365 GTB4. It's a unique vehicle, and reproduced in 1:18 scale it will compliment any collection.
