• 2011 Ferrari 599-VX by Vorsteiner

German tuning company, Vorsteiner, has earned quite a reputation for being one of the foremost tuners of Bentley, Mercedes, Porsche, and BMW models. However, on that list, and the many other brands it has worked on, there’s a conspicuous absence of Italian cars.

Until now.

For the first time in the company’s illustrious history, Vorsteiner is working on a supercar from Italy, one that calls itself the Ferrari 599. The first dalliance between the German tuning firm and the Italian automaker has turned into a shining example of what the former is entirely capable of with just about any vehicle it customizes.

The final product is called the 599-VX, which takes elements from the 599 GTB Fiorano and combines it with characteristics derived from the 599 GTO and the 599 XX. The full breadth of details surrounding this program will be unveiled in a week’s time, but it’s worth noting that the package includes, among other things, a new front end, hood, side skirts, rear deck lid, rear intake panel, and a rear bumper with an integrated diffuser. This eight-piece body kit is entirely made of carbon fiber while a new set of lightweight wheels forged from aircraft-grade aluminum adds even more flair to the 599-VX’s profile.

Kirby’s first exposure into the world of automobiles happened when he caught Knight Rider on television as a five-year old boy. David Hasselhoff didn’t leave much of an impression on him (that happened later on in Baywatch), but KITT certainly did. To this day, Kirby remains convinced that he will one day own a car with the same ‘spirit’ as the original KITT (not the 2008 monstrosity). He doesn't know when that will be, but until then, he’s committed to expressing his love for KITT, and all cars for that matter, here at TopSpeed.  Read full bio

This Ferrari looks so impressive on its aero dynamic package, especially on its exterior. I also have to agree that it is already looking great on its body paint. However, I wonder if what’s the engine specification of it?

I love the neat and sporty appearance of this Ferrari 599, and I must say that this is the kind of sports vehicle that every car lover would love to have. However, I wonder if what are the other great features that this car had?

Vorsteiner is a very known tuning company from Germany. Well, as far as I know, it is the first time they are going to work with Ferrari. By the way, I think the car is much better to be called the Ferrari 599 FULL since all the specs of the car is from Ferrari 599 versions.

I agree on that one. The things that are amazing on a sportscars are the speed performance and and hard-hitting look. Talking about the Ferrari 599, I would say that it both have those two. However, it would be better if they have increased the figure performance to make the tweaking  ;bundle complete.

I will not argue about the reputation of the Vorsteiner when it comes to tweaking up an awesome sportscar like the Ferrari 599. This car is simply sporty and aggressive plus its speed performance is remarkable. However, too sad that they haven’t upgraded its engine.
