Ferrari 599XX Evoluzione Sounds Brutal: Video
Launched in 2012, the Ferrari 599XX Evolution represented the pinnacle of the Ferrari 599 lineup. It had aerodynamic upgrades, a modified chassis, new tires, and a retuned engine. In other words, it was the most extreme iteration of the 599. Even today, the 599XX Evoluzione remains one of the most mental Ferraris that Maranello has made in recent memory. All the things that made it awesome then still make it awesome now. No more is that evident than in this recent video of a 599XX Evoluzione that was spotted running roughshod over the Spa Francorchamps racetrack in Belgium.
If you’ve never heard the 599XX’s ridiculous 6.3-liter V-12 engine in action, this is your chance to get a feel for the exotic track car. The video runs close to nine minutes, so there’s a lot of heavy acceleration and popping downshifts that’ll definitely make your day. As an added bonus, a 2014 Ferrari LaFerrari even makes a cameo in the middle of the video.
As a brief refresher on the car, the 599XX Evoluzione came with improved chassis dynamics that worked in concert with an active aerodynamic package that was integrated into the vehicles’ electronic control systems. One of the more prominent features of this aero package is the active rear wing that came with two flaps that were similar to the ones used in Formula One back in 2011. These flaps rotated electronically to adjust the downforce between the front and rear axles. The 599XX Evoluzione also came with a hefty engine upgrade that brought its total output to 750 horsepower and 516 pound-feet of torque.
