Ferrari 599

Ferrari 599

  The Ferrari 599 GTB Fiorano debuted in 2006 as a 2007 model in order to replace the 575M Maranello. It is an Italian gran turismo available in GTB Fiorano and GTB Fiorano F1. With an aluminum chassis, body, and powertrain, this 3,726lb sports car is powered by a 6.0L V12 engine producing 611 HP and 448 lb-ft of torque. This engine is mated to a six-speed manual or automated manual.

Fresh off of disposing Saul "Canelo" Alvarez in one of the most clinical displays of boxing you’ll ever see, Floyd Mayweather Jr. is back to living large like nobody else can.

He pocketed a cool $41.5 million as his fight purse alone, and that number is expected to hit anywhere from $85 to $100 million when all is said and done. So yeah, the nickname fits the man, so they say.

Mayweather’s status as one of the richest athletes in the world also affords him some nice luxuries, one of which he proudly displayed during the recent build-up to the Alvarez fight.

Over in his Las Vegas home, Mayweather has a pretty sick car collection. It’s not sick because of the quantity. It’s sick because of the quality of machines he has inside his Vegas property. Oh, and they’re all white too, which has become a color of choice whenever Mayweather is shopping for a new set of wheels.

Take a look at the collection and tell us you’re not impressed. There’s a Lamborghini Aventador , a Ferrari 599 GTB , a Ferrari 458 Spyder , a Rolls-Royce Drophead , a Bentley Mulsanne , a Rolls-Royce Phantom , a Bugatti Veyron , and his personal favorite, a 1996 Mercedes S600 V12 sedan , which we assume was his first car after turning pro in 1996. In case your head is spinning just trying to tally up the rough total of those cars, it is somewhere between $3.5 and $4 million, depending on the years and the options on each car.

But the best part about Money May’s extravagant car collection? It’s not the only one he has. He’s got one in Miami, Los Angeles, and God knows where else.

That’s how you collect in style, fellas.

The Ferrari 599 was already replaced by the new F12berlinetta , but the 599XX EVO variant still remains a car that grabs our attention. A bunch of 599XX EVO models were recently making their rounds at the Paul Ricard Circuit in France and a Youtube user, Tomedelic1, was lucky enough to be there. According to Tomedelic1, he had the "experience of a life time" while he was there, and fortunately, he was kind enough to share it with us.

He didn’t just get to see these cool cars lapping the circuit. Nope, he had the chance to ride along is this 750-horsepower, V-12 monster and experience the great sounds from the inside of the car.

As a refresher, 599XX EVO is powered by a 6.3-liter, V-12 engine that delivers a total of 750 horsepower at 7,000 rpm and 516 pound-feet of torque. That plenty to get just about any one’s heart pumping and the adrenaline flowing.

We have one more reason to love Chris Harris, as he decided to sell his Porsche and bought a Ferrari 599 . If you are asking why, the answer is quite simple: because the finance payments were too much for him to handle. Also, after saying some unpleasant things about some Ferrari models he is now on Maranello’s black list and he is not invited to test its models anymore.

So, you see, somehow he missed driving an Italian supercar, especially now that 599 units have hit the skids in the UK. We would have liked better to see him behind the wheel of a new F12berlinetta , but that beast costs a good bit more than the 599.

All we can say is that Harris is pretty impressed by the 599 and found it rather impressive. Let us know in the comments section below what do you think about his new acquisition.

If you are in the business of checking out world debuts, you go to auto shows ; if you want to see what the latest in the aftermarket scene you, you go to tuning show.

But if you want to see some of the most fancily dressed supercars, you check out the Gumball 3000 Rally. Every year, this event features some of the finest supercars on the planet. But more than just the exotics themselves, the supercars that participate at the Gumball 3000 Rally come in all shapes and colors.

Take this Ferrari 599 GTO for example. This is brought to you by Team 50 and as clearly evident from the paint, it’s been dressed in colorful band of colors with matte black occupying the bottom part of the car with some touches of gold on the stickers.

The upper part appears to be a digitized blue camouflage with a French flag on the hood, the British Union Jack on the roof, and a small Swiss flag on the side deck lid.

We don’t know what the deal is with those flags, but overall, this 599 GTO looks absolutely amazing. Then again, “amazing” is par for the course at the Gumball 3000 Rally.

By all accounts, Caitlin Hixx looks like a nice, smart girl who’s got a good head on her shoulders. We get all that, but there’s one thing that we just can’t seem to let go. This blonde is so hot it hurts us to even type these words.

When you put her on top of a hood of a Ferrari 599 , then all bets are off. We’re throwing ourselves over a bridge.

But before we actually consider that, it’s important to show that on top of the 599, Hixx is also shown playing around with an equally hot Ferrari F430 Scuderia Spyder 16M.

Give the props to professional photographer Nino Batista for being able to capture these images like only he can.

Nino wants to provide us with photos of hot women with hot cars. In this instance, he really smacked one out of the park. Check out the gallery featuring Catie Hixx and the pair of Ferraris below.

The Corse Clienti program for Ferrari is one the perks of owning some of the coolest sports cars on the planet. In this program, owners of the FXX , FXX Evolution , 599XX , and 599XX Evolution get to experience the thrill of driving their cars on the track with a group of Ferrari employees at their disposal.

At this year’s Monza event, there was the usual array of 599XX EVO and FXX models to tantalize Ferrari lovers all around, and YouTube user Marchettino was there to capture every grunt and growl produced by the powerful engines from these sports cars.

As a reminder, the Ferrari 599XX is powered by a 6.3 liter V12 engine that delivers a total of 750 HP at 7000 rpm and 516 lb-ft of torque. With the extra 50 HP, the 599XX will sprint from 0 to 60 mph in just 2.9 seconds and up to a top speed of 196 mph. The Ferrari FXX is powered by a 6.3 liter V12 engine delivering 789 HP at 8500 rpm, which takes it from 0-60 mph in 2.8 seconds and up to a top speed of 217 mph. It is mated to a 6-speed sequential gearbox.

Enjoy the revs, folks!

It’s time to take a little break from all the Paris Auto Show related news and talk about something a little more fun: toys! Whether you’re a child or not, we’re pretty sure many of you can appreciate the art behind die-cast models. These small versions of high-end supercars are an adult child’s dream, but this one in particular, a very cool Ferrari 599XX collection developed by BBR, is simply drool-worthy.

These 1:18 scale models are painted in the same Evo Rosso and Rosso Corsa colors used for the real car. Unfortunately, they will be built in a limited run - 50 units painted in Evo Rossa and 25 units painted in Rosso Corsa - combined with a very cool F1 2007 Italian Flag.

The bad news is that these amazing toys are not cheap. Each unit is priced at $475, cheaper that the real car, but still a ton money for a toy.

Back in June, Ferrari auctioned off a 599XX Evo for a cool 1.4 million euro (about $1.77 million at the current rates), all of which was donated to help the victims of the earthquake that hit the Emilia Romagna region back in May. Now, the man who forked over his hard-earned cash was given his prize at a special ceremony in Monza.

The lucky owner is Benjamin Sloss, Vice President of Engineering for Google. He and his beautiful wife received the keys to their brand new 599XX from Ferrari President Luca di Montezemolo, along with Scuderia drivers, Fernando Alonso and Felipe Massa.

Sloss was thrilled with the event and said he was extremely happy to have contributed to this cause, which he decided to support as soon as he heard what had happened in Italy, in the hops of helping with the reconstruction plans.

Benjamin Sloss will now be driving around with a 6.3L V12 engine at his disposal, which pumps out 750 HP at 7000 rpm and 516 lb-ft of torque. Helping the engine along is a weight reduction of 77 lbs compared to the standard 599 model.

There is nothing that a parent fears in his or her life more than the possibility of their child facing death. A Subaru enthusiast in England is facing just that, as his 11-year-old son, who has beaten cancer twice, now has an inoperable tumor in his brain that leaves him with just four weeks to live.

Just before the son was diagnosed, Scott, the son’s father, had promised him that they would organize a big car meet at some time. Now that there may be only four weeks left in this child’s life, Scott has decided to post an open invitation on Scooby Net (a Subaru enthusiast board) to anyone with a custom or cool car to gather at a nearby parking lot on September 8th at 1 p.m. for a show.

So far this viral attempt has taken off, as there are 270 cars registered for the event, and several of our colleagues, including Jalopnik, Piston Heads, and M5 Boards are all spreading the word. Even Chris Harris is getting in on it. He cannot personally make it, but he is finding a way to get his Ferrari 599 to the show. There has also been a PayPal account setup that will accept donations, which will go directly to the Children’’s Cancer Fund. The address for the Paypal account is scottharrison10@sky.com.

The Show is set to be hosted at Fred Lawton Ltd, Meltham Mills Industrial Estate, Meltham Huddersfield, HD9 4AY, but it might have to be moved elsewhere because of the growing number of cars registering. We will keep you updated on the exact location if it does move.

So if any of our readers across the pond have a nice ride, feel free to pop into the thread on Scooby Net and register your car. They are accepting all sorts of high-performance and custom cars. Let’s all chip in and give this young man a memorable show!

Also, for anyone looking to participate in this event, Scott asks that you DO NOT mention the terminal illness to his son. They are not telling him until the time is closer, as they want him to enjoy the final month of his life.

Hey, Ferrari SP12 EPC , you’re not the only special one-off Ferrari to be rolled off the production line this year! The Italian sports car gurus in Maranello have put together another unique ride for a man with an extremely healthy piggy bank, and this one may just put Eric Clapton’s Ferrari to shame.

Cheerag Arya, a 32-year-old Indian born businessman known as CA, enlisted the help of Ferrari Special Projects to come up with his perfect Italian baby. His new SP Arya is based on the 599 GTO and was originally sent over to CA in a spread of 12 designs. CA proceeded to pick each design apart and put together an image of the car he had in mind. His "wish list" of features turned into a supercar with striking body details and an improved exhaust and suspension setup. Unfortunately, there were no power boosts, so the SP Arya will still be equipped with a V12 engine with an impressive output of 670 HP. Then again, who can complain when they have power like that?

The Ferrari Sp Arya will sit in CA’s garage along with a host of other Ferrari models, including an F40 , a 599XX , an SA Aperta , and the legendary Daytona.
