Ferrari prepares a facelift for the 599 GTB

Ferrari prepares a facelift for the 599 GTB

The 599 GTB may currently be the most powerful offering from Ferrari, but that may not be enough. In the world of the prancing horse, power isn’t everything; there must also be style.

So as the 599 enters its fourth production year, Ferrari is hard at work at giving this grand tourer a little nip and tuck. We should see the subtle changes as early as this year. One thing that is not expected to change is the 620 hp 6.0-liter V12 engine.

Ferrari is not just using a facelift to keep the 599 evergreen. It unveiled the 599XX and the HGTE package in Geneva, and there is even a rumored Spider version in the works.

True and very sad. The Scuderia versions come stripped out with no major power gain and then get beaten by Nissans and Porches, both of which get the job done with sacrificing comfort. Which is just a shame because the F430 chassis can easily handle more torque and horsepower.

Ahhh yes the great power vs. control debate...

GT cars have traditionally had extra power to get over the extra weight. The F430 Scuderia is quicker 0 to 60 than the 599, but the 599 catches up by 100 mph and has a higher top speed.

I find amusing that Ferrari with their racing pedigree have a grand tourer as their top of line model. Their mid engine two door/seaters are not that fast and they are the actual racing cars.
