The 599 GTB Fiorano was, until the F12 was launched recently, Ferraris two-seat flagship, and was the successor to the 575M Maranello having replaced it in 2006. The 599 is, of course, a spiritual successor to the legendary 250 GT, 275 GTB and Daytona. With an Enzo-derived 5999cc V12 shoehorned into a latest generation all-alloy chassis, the 620bhp standard GTB was Ferrari's most powerful V12 production car ever. The 599, as with many previous Ferraris takes its name from its engine displacement of the V12, the "GTB" stands for Gran Turismo Berlinetta and it was styled by Pininfarina under the direction of Ferrari's Frank Stephenson.
This Nero Daytona example was delivered new by HR Owen in March 2007, the car's first owner in Surrey. The car has had one further keeper and has now covered just 8,500miles. This 599 is presented in the stunning combination of metallic Nero Daytona paint, Nero leather electric sports seats and contrasting Rosso stitching, piping, rev dial and brake calipers. Other optional extras include; trimmed roll cage, Carbon driving zone with red LED shift light in the wheel, Ipod integration, Scuderia wingshields ceramic brakes and a sports exhaust. This excellent spec combined with the low mileage makes this 599 one of the most striking cars available today.
