Get ready to shell out $1.5 million for this used Ferrari

The Ferrari 599 GTZ Nibbio Zagato was unveiled back in 2007 and was just limited to nine units worldwide. Compare this model to modern-day Ferraris, and you will notice how radically different this is from what the Italian manufacturer makes now. Upfront, it looks nothing but a Ferrari, but the rear is where it looks different. This is exactly what modern-day automakers must do, instead of following the Russian doll design. The 599 GTZ you see here is actually up for sale, assuming you can afford it.

A Rare, Manual 599 GTZ Nibbio Zagato

As mentioned above, the Ferrari manufactured just nine units of this exclusive car, out of which eight came with a semi-automatic paddle-shift transmission system. One example, however, featured a six-speed manual gearbox, and that is the one up for sale now. You can get it from Tomini Classics in Dubai if you have enough cheddar.

How Different Is It From The 599 GTB?

The 599 GTZ Nibbio Zagato bears minimal resemblance with the standard 599 GTB. In front, it came with new air intakes, redesigned headlights, and a large overhauled grille.

The rear, on the other hand, is where it blows our mind and that's where the Ferrari 599 Nibbio Zagato really stands out.

The roof is paired with a customized rear window that seamlessly stretches back along the rear decklid, giving it a slight muscle car touch when viewed from the side. The 599 GTZ Nibbio Zagato’s new roof and rear window frame are painted in white, while the rest of the rare exotic is finished in dark blue. The finished look might draw polarising opinions, but it’s definitely different.

What Powers This Beast?

Under the hood, the 599 GTZ Nibbio Zagato has the same drivetrain as the standard 599 GTB.

We’re talking about the 6.0-liter, naturally aspirated, V-12 that churns out 612 ponies and 448 pound-feet of torque. Despite having clocked 16,635 miles, the seller is asking $1.495 million for it. It seems way too high, but when you are selling an exclusive variant of a limited-edition car, you have the right to demand exorbitant prices. Would you buy this car if you had $1.5 million to spend?
