Ferrari 599 GTB Fiorano for Sydney


9th October, 2006


Ferrari 599 GTB Fiorano

The Ferrari 599 GTB Fiorano will be on display at the 2006 Sydney Motor Show from 26th October, 2006.

The complete allocation of this new model for Australia and New Zealand for both this year and next have already been sold, so no one will be driving away from the show in the new Ferrari 599 GTB!

“Even by Ferrari’s unique standards, the 599 GTB Fiorano has had a rapturous reception as it has been launched around the world,” says Kevin Wall, the General Manager for European Automotive Imports, the Australian and New Zealand Ferrari distributor."

“Time and time again, the 599 GTB has been described as the best car in world, the greatest super car of all time, the ultimate useable supercar. It is a car that is faster than Ferrari F40, only fractionally slower than the road-racing car that is the Ferrari Enzo, yet it is full equipped with every luxury feature, it is docile and easy to drive, but when called on, can deliver shattering performance. It is no wonder, therefore, that the demand for the 599 GTB Fiorano has been unprecedented,” says Mr Wall.

The Ferrari 599 GTB Fiorano is the latest in a long line of classic V12 supercars on which the Italian car maker has built its reputation, from the 1953 250MM, through to the 1968 365 GTB4 ‘Daytona’ to the 575M Maranello.

Drawing on technology from both its road and Formula One cars, Ferrari has produced a sports car that combines shattering performance – 0-100 km/h in 3.7 seconds and a top speed in excess of 330 km/h – with comfort, luxury and exclusivity. It is a car that is equally capable of easing its way through the toughest urban traffic conditions, cocooning its occupants in comfort, as it is hammering around the Ferrari test track, after which it is named, at speeds that place it on a par with dedicated racing cars.

The styling of the Ferrari 599 GTB Fiorano is an blend of beauty that lingers in the mind long after the 599 has disappeared over the horizon. For example, there is no crude wing across the back of the 599 to provide downforce, rather two ‘flying buttresses’ parallel the C-pillar. These don’t just provide a visual lightness to the rear three quarter of the car; they also provide more than 100 kg of downforce and add to the excellent directional stability of the 599.

Power is nothing without control and the Ferrari has an exceptional chassis that is at the cutting edge of technology, from the F1-Trac electronic chassis control system to the SCM Magnetorheological Suspension that can instantly change the response of the suspension to meet different road and driving conditions. The standard brakes offer exceptional stopping ability, the optional Carbon Ceramic brakes offer epic performance that is usually only available on racing cars.

The Australian recommended retail prices for the Ferrari 599 GTB Fiorano are $574,000 for the manual and $600,000 for the 599 GTB Fiorano equipped with the F1 Superfast gearbox.
