Ferrari 599 GTO Supercar Fastest Street Legal Prancing Horse Ever?

How great can Ferrari make a car? I have asked myself that question many times and each new design proves a new answer. Well check out the Ferrari 599 GTO which might be the fastest street legal Ferrari ever!!! This beast checks in with 670-hp from its 6.0-liter V12 engine and the looks are off the charts hot. Whoever gets to own one of these is a very lucky person! Salute…

From AutoGuide.com:

It’s the fastest road-going Ferrari ever says the Italian maker of the world’s finest exotic cars. The 599 GTO is the latest Ferrari and is in many ways a street legal version of the 599XX track car. Making a total of 670-hp from its 6.0-liter V12 engine and using an upgraded transmission, lighter weight and improved aerodynamics, it has achieved what Ferrari says is a record 1 minute 24 second lap at the automaker’s Fiorano test track.

The engine itself has been modified from the factory vehicle with friction reducing components as well as a redesigned crankshaft and new new intake system to make all 670-hp at 8250 rpm, while a total of 457 ft-lbs of torque is available at 6500 rpm. Ferrari claims a 0-62 mph time of 3.35 seconds and a top speed in excess of 208-mph. Helping to achieve quicker acceleration is a reprogrammed six-speed F1 transmission with 60 ms shift times and the ability to drop several gears at a time.

The Ferrari 599 GTO

It’s nice to dream about cars we know we’ll never own so let’s add this Ferrari 599 GTO and place it right at the top! It might get rough though because Ferrari is reportedly only going to produce 500 of these bad boy.

This machine looks unreal….

Ferrari is reportedly taking pre-orders for an ultra-high-performance version of the already impressive 599 GTB. The vehicle, referred to as the 599 GTO on Ferrari’s ordering information, is rumored to be inspired by the 599XX track-only model that launched earlier this year at the Geneva Auto Show.

Not only would the 599 GTO get a more powerful V12 engine with anywhere from 680 to 700-hp (up from the standard car’s 611-hp rating), but it would also weigh anywhere from 100 to 150-lbs less. We expect a more light-weight race-inspired interior as well as carbon fiber body parts to help reduce the weight.

With just 500 models set for production the asking price would be closer to the $400,000 mark.
