2008 Ferrari 599 GTB Fiorano
Replacing the 575M Maranello, the 599 was the first V12 road car from Ferrari to adopt a construction method that placed an aluminium chassis at the heart of things. Prior to this model, V12 Ferraris had used tubular-steel construction which, while exotic, was actually less torsionally rigid and heavier than the aluminium pioneered by the 599.
Most powerful road car
The 599 was also one of the first road cars from any manufacturer to offer carbon-ceramic brakes as factory options, boosting outright stopping power as well as ensuring predictable and consistent braking even under race-track conditions. The 599 also broke the mould when it came to engine efficiency and, with its 456kW of power, it was the most powerful Ferrari road-car to that point in the company’s history.
This car was ordered with the traditional tan leather interior, the Daytona seating option, carbon-fibre interior highlights, carbon steering wheel with LED indicator lights, 20-inch Challenge alloy rims, front and rear parking sensors and, of course, the carbon-ceramic brakes and their yellow calipers.
