There’s no better way to mark the end of production for the most extreme Ferrari 599 ever built then to give it a kickass special edition, and Ferrari is doing just that with the 599XX Evolution. The new Evolution package boasts of aerodynamic advancements, as well as a boost in power, and will be available to clients participating in the track-based research and development program for the 2012-2013 seasons.

The new 599XX Evolution features 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.

The most impressive feature, however, is the addition of an extra 50 HP for the 599XX’s 6.3L V12 engine. This addition brings the 599XX’s total power up to 750 HP at 7000 rpm and 516 lb-ft of torque. Helping the engine along is a weight reduction of 77 lbs compared to the standard model.

UPDATE 12/02/2011: Thanks to Marchettino, we now have a video of the 599XX Evo when it debuted at the 2011 Bologna Motor Show. Hit the jump to check it out!

UPDATE 05/13/2012: Ferrari has just dropped a new set of images featuring the 599XX at the opening round to the European Ferrari Challenge Trofeo Pirelli at Monza. Its next stop will be at California’s Laguna Seca circuit, a few miles from the attractions of Monterey, which will host the third Ferrari Racing Days of the season on May 20, 2012.

That wasn’t much of an increase, but still, I think it does a lot when it actually performs.

This evolution package of 599XX is really awesome! Moreover, I truly love the aggressiveness of this sports car even the fact that it has a powerful engine which is absolutely suited for this kind of vehicle.

750 horsepower is really awesome on this Ferrari vehicle, and it is truly a great evolution on that, and I also have to admit that it already looks attractive on its modification, and it looks more angst and aggressive on that.

This 599XX evolution really has an impressive aerodynamic package, and it truly looks now a Formula 1 vehicle on its looks. smiley Moreover, it seems so fun to drive with than before because on its super V12 engine!

It maybe looks so aggressive than before, but the good thing is they justify that quality by using an efficient and impressive engine that has a powerful output of 750 hp @ 7000 RPM.

Evolution for Ferrari? I think it is more a good-looking vehicle on its previous appearance. I just only noticed that it looks so aggressive now, which is too "over" on it. Anyway, I’m still impressed on its engine.

Wow! This one is so unlike with the Ferrari cars which is somewhat looked refreshing. However, I don’t like the front of it, very confusing. Anyway, I’m glad that it had an impressive engine output.
