Ferrari 599 GTO Fastest Ferrari Ever

If you’re looking for the fastest street-legal prancing pony ever made, the Ferrari 599 GTO is the one. Faster than the 599 GTB Fioriano. Faster than the F40. Faster than the F50. Faster, even, than the Enzo Ferrari.

Did you read that?

The 599 GTO is faster than the Enzo.

If that doesn’t express the gravity of this car, I don’t think anything will.

I’m going to pick my chin off the desk, wipe off the drool, at least long enough for the specs:

Ferrari 599 GTO Specs

  • 670 HP 6.0 liter V12 engine
  • 457 lb-ft of torque at 6,500 RPM
  • Redline at 9,000 RPM
  • Six speed sequential gearbox
  • RWD
  • 0-62 MPH in 3.35 seconds
  • Top speed over 208 MPH
  • Curb weight: 3,295 lbs

So Ferrari took the already magificent 599 GTB, dropped about 185 lbs, added 58 horsepower, and in the process added all sorts of fancy 599XX go-fast bits. In the process, fuel economy managed to increase slightly, though I’m not sure owners would even notice.

Check out this video of the 599 GTO below. Note: It’s in Italian, but you do get to hear the sweet sounds of this car in action. It’s worth it for that alone.
