While everyone expected to see the 599 GTO in march at the Geneva Motor Show, Ferrari pulled yet another fast one on all of us by deciding to postpone the launch date until April 7. Limited to just 500 units, the 599 GTO comes with a price tag of somewhere around half a million dollars and making it the Ferrari to be designated with a GTO badge since the F40 super car-inspiring 288 GTO.

Until the calendar hits April 7, which is just about a couple of weeks from now, we’re just going to have to settle for playing the waiting game. Nevertheless, we can still tell you what to expect from the future GTO: a V12 engine with a total output of 670 horsepower and 620 NM of torque. A sprint time from 0 to 60 mph in 3.3 seconds - less than 0.3 seconds faster than the Ferrari Enzo - and a complete lap at the Fiorano race track in one minute and 24 seconds - one second faster than an Enzo on normal street tires.

I believe both Lexus and Ferrari have the rights for the spot. Actually there’s no need for both the fans to quarrel both are great cars.

Well, pretty good 670 horsepower will surely be enough to make it roar like a tiger and sprint very fast. With that kind of price tag, once again, only the rich and powerful will be able to have one of these babies in their garage.

Ferrari! That will shut up the Lexus fans and their flu-fever-induced claims that the LF-A is somehow in the same league as the 599. The 6-liter V12 with a higher per-liter output and handling to match? I’m already drooling.
