Well that split running your telling has given the 599 GTO the aggressiveness and sportiness looking of a supercar.

Not bad, just don’t like the split running up the center of the hood and the black roof, such have been all one color. Love the rear diffuser though. But having said that I prefer the 599FXX.

I agree that’s why many owners ended up smashing it and crashing it to the wall.
