Any doubts or skepticism on the validity of the Ferrari 599 GTO – the road version of the Ferrari 599XX – can now be put to rest after spy photos of what appears to be the 599 GTO was recently taken in Europe. It certainly helped that Ferrari didn’t put a whole of effort in disguising this car because it looks eerily similar – especially the roof elements and those easy-to-notice rear exhaust design - to the 599XXs that Felipe Massa and six of his cohorts were seen driving a week ago.

Official details behind the car are still being kept under wraps by Ferrari but those who are in-the-know have said that the car’s 6.0-liter V12 engine will be derived from the Ferrari Enzo, which, if accurate, should give the 599 GTO a top speed of somewhere in the neighbourhood of 220 mph and a 0-60mph time of around 3.2 seconds.

The Ferrari 599 GT0 is expected to make an appearance at the Geneva Motor Show in March and is rumoured to be headed out to dealerships in the succeeding months on a limited run of just 500 total units with a price tag that is expected to fall just a nail under half-a-million dollars ($464,950).

I don’t know but if the car doesn’t have any emblems on it, I’d say that looking at it’s front, I wouldn’t recognize it as a Ferrari car.... maybe an Aston Martin perhaps, something that James Bond will use to charm and then crash later on the movie.

Wow, another hot and expensive car. If only I had that much money, half a million bucks. It doesn’t look far from the earlier models but it seems faster. I wonder if they will be making a hybrid or electric version of it as well.
