The Ferrari 599 GTO Fiorano is one of the most iconic Ferraris, along with the F40, the Testarossa and the 250 GT Berlinetta. This model is one of the most loved by fans, and its manufacture lasted from 2006 to 2012 and today a unit in condition has a value of 130,000 euros in the Spanish market. We have been able to observe that this model built in 2006 by those of Maranello is tending to be increase its value. As of today, there are only a total of 599 units of this model with a name originating from the brand’s test track.

The unit being auctioned is from the US market. The auction house Mecum Auctions has estimated the value of this sale at just over 700,000 euros.

On the left the street 599 GTO, while on the right we find the most radical version, 599XX, designed for the circuit.

Now that we know the reason for the price of this car, let’s talk about its spectacular technical specifications. This model has a 6.0-liter V12 that generates a staggering 670 hp, spectacular is the purr its engine produces, not worthy of a cat. It does 0-100km/h in 3.3 seconds and reaches a maximum speed of more than 335 km/h. Its 6-speed automatic-sequential transmission was an innovation for the time and made the change in twice as long as a Formula 1. This fascinating technical sheet was not easy to get, as this car is the street version of the 599XX, as previously mentioned. Taking into account that they got a street car with the benefits of a racing car, those of Maranello have managed to make a mythical car.

The exterior of the car is red, and contains two-tone interiors, with orange as the main color and black as a secondary color, with carbon fiber details.

This exclusive car today has an auction value that exceeds 700,000 euros, it is true that this copy is very exclusive in the market in which it is sold and only has 270 kilometers. I doubt that any of us in Car Reviews Magazine would have this monstrosity in their garage and not move it for a kilometer.
