Ferrari presented special edition 599XX at the 2009 Geneva Motor Show. It is based on the 599 GTB Fiorano with the same transaxle layout and V12 engine.
Engineers have modified engine’s combustion chambers and exhaust system.
Maximum revs have been boosted to 9,000 rpm and new power output is 700 hp.
The 599XX comes with a second generation SCM suspension system, which offers sportier handling. Track usage is also made easier thanks to the new “virtual car engineer”, a screen in the car that provides a real-time indication of the vehicle’s efficiency.
Body is made of composites and carbon-fiber to keep the total weight as low as possible. Everything has been wind tunnel tested and the car now boasts 280 kg of downforce at 200 km/h (630 kg at 300 km/h).
The 599XX comes with slick tires (29/67 R19 Front and 31/71 R19 Rear) specifically developed to maximize stability in cornering and increase lateral acceleration.
Ferrari 599XX is not for street use and will be produced in a very limited series for a selected group of Ferrari clients.
