While some people still try to decide whether or not the new Ferrari F12berlinetta is a beauty or a beast, the most extreme 599 ever built, the 599XX Evolution, laid out its lusciousness on the Suzuka race track. This event marked the first race of the Ferrari Racing Days for the Asia-Pacific region.
As a reminder, the 599XX is an evolution of the original 599. It is powered by a V12 engine that delivers a total of 750 HP at 7000 rpm and 516 lb-ft of torque (an increase of 50 HP over the standard model). The kickass 599 received improved chassis dynamics thanks to an active aerodynamic package integrated with the vehicles’ electronic control systems and the adoption of new Pirelli tires. The new aero package uses an active rear wing that features two flaps, with profiles similar to those used in Formula 1, which rotate electronically to adjust the downforce between the front and rear axles in function of vehicle speed and the maneuver being effected.
