If you are fortunate enough to have been enjoying the fabulous Ferrari 599 GTB since before before the high performance handling HGTE package was introduced, the Italian automaker is now giving you a chance to install the system as an Aftermarket Package.

Ferrari HGTE Sport Kit now available as Aftermarket Package
- image 311326

The package (for pre-2008 599 GTB Fioranos) will only set you back $28,300 and will upgrade your GT machines handling significantly, as well as include a new exhaust system and some styling upgrades. For post-2008 models equipped with the F1 Superfast transmission, the price jumps up to $32,400 and adds an additional performance kit.

So for the price of brand new Mitsubishi Evo X, or the transponder watch for the new DBS you can have a Ferrari 599 that will run circles around the F-40 and maybe give Scuderias a run for ther money on the track, We think that it is well worth it, after all, what’s 30K when you already spent over 300 thousand dollars for an outstanding automobile. Why not make it even better?
