After the spreading of some snapped pictures, the Ferrari 599 GTB Fiorano replacement was caught again while doing testing. These time, there are something different, the car seems wearing the current model’s body panels which is the final production model’s prototype.
The Ferrari 599 GTB Previously known as the F152 is set to have its first debut at the upcoming year edition of the Geneva Salon in March 2012. While the sales will be kick off later on following its unveiling. The Ferrari 599 GTB was built to be ready to face against its competitor, the new Lamborghini Aventador Lp 700- 4.
We can clearly see every parts of the car through its photos since the 599 prototype was sneakily wrapped on a slightly swollen cloth. Its front engine position is noticeable enough, as well as with its totally mounted LED tail lamps. So far, it seems that the upcoming 599 will be most likely to derive some particular design elements from either 458 Italia or the FF GT.
Unlike the upcoming Enzo successor, the new Ferrari 599 will just employ an alloy monocoque body and not carbonfiber. However, the automaker stated that compared to the previous model, it will be lighter actually.
The new 599 will make use of an upgraded version of the new FF’s 6.3 liter V12 which then mated to a direct- injection technology. Amedeo Felisa who is the Ferrari boss stated during an interview that the unit will be able to spawn more than 700 ponies. Through that way, the upcoming 599 is proven to be much better than the previous 599 GTB which produces 612 hp and it also will against the Lamborghini Aventador LP 700- 4 that only able to deliver an average 700 ponies.
Such a great power will be delivered to its rear- wheels through a seven- speed dual- clutch transmission and will be organized by a host of electronics.
