While based on the 599 GTB Fiorano, this prototype is an extreme track car. Ferrari's engineers carried out extensive engine work on the combustion chambers and inlet and exhaust tracts. All these changes, combined with the fact that internal attrition has been reduced and maximum revs have been boosted to 9,000 rpm, lead to a target power output of 700 hp at 9,000 rpm.
Moreover, the 599XX is characterized by an innovative electronic concept called the â€œHigh Performance Dynamic Conceptâ€ designed for maximum performance by managing the combination of the car's mechanical limits with the potential of its electronic controls. At the same time, composites and carbon-fibre have been widely used in the body, the engineers drawing on their experience with aluminum to reach the weight target.
Ferrari says the 599XX features a "plethora of aerodynamic, electronic control and handling innovations used together for the first time on a single car, making this model a genuine technological laboratory." Only 20 or 30 examples of the 599XX were offered to a very selected clientele, and participation in the program (which includes the car) runs over a million Euros (close to 2 million dollars). A limited edition model (up to 5,000 pieces) for a limited series car!
