2011 Ferrari 599 by Team 50

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.

Ferrari 599 GTO

Before Ferrari unleashed its new wave of supercars a few years ago, the Ferrari 599 GTO was considered the meanest and baddest to come out of Maranello. At that time, the 599 GTO was billed as "an extreme V-12 berlinetta developed to a specific performance-oriented brief". It was only limited to 599 units, with each one coming with a V-12 engine delivering a total of 670 horsepower at 8,250 rpm with a maximum torque of 457 pound-feet at 6,500 rpm. Taken all together, the 599 GTO could hit 0 to 60 mph in just 3.35 seconds, while top speed goes up to 208 mph.
