The Ferrari 599 GTO - The fastest ever road-going Ferrari ever built.
The 599 GTO i, in fact, the fastest street legal Ferrari every built. The GTO is an exclusive and limited edition built , in keeping with Ferrari tradition, as a completley new concept, albeit inspired bthe 599 GTB road car. In fact the 599 GTO is really based on the 599XX, the advanced experimental track car, and can be considered almost a road-going version. The 599 GTO is reserved for jsut 599 clients who seek the maximum expression of high-performance driving. The GTO benefits directly from the racing technology and set a record lap time at Fiorano in 1'24".
The Fiorano lap time provides just one indication of the pontential of this car. Just as significant are the technical specifications - 670 HP in a 3289 lb. car represents a weight to power ration of just 4.9 lbs/hp, and ensures a 0-60 acceleration time of just 3.35 seconds as well as a top speed of 209 MPH.
The GTO (Gran Turismo Omologata) moniker instantly calls to mind two Ferraris that have entered the collective imagination as symbols of performance. After the 1962 250 GTO, which swept the boards in GT racing categories in the 1960s and is now a highly prized collector’s car, came the iconic 1984 GTO, which basically invented the entire modern supercar genre.
ENGINE AND GEARBOX
The 599 GTO’s engine is directly derived from the 599XX unit implementing, however, the necessary modifications for road-going homologation. It thus complies with Euro 5 and LEV 2 standards. The 5999 cc 65-degree V12 engine punches out 670 CV at 8250 rpm with maximum torque of 620 Nm at 6500 rpm and there is a smooth, constant rush of power all the way to the redline with no loss of flexibility even at medium and low revs. This result was obtained by working on the fluid-dynamics and components to reduce internal friction and by adopting, amongst other things, the 599XX’s redesigned crankshaft. The car also has a racing-type intake system with a new manifold with diffuser-type intake geometry and short inlet tracts designed to improve power delivery at high revs and reduce losses. To maximise volumetric efficiency per cylinder, a connection between the two plenums at the front compensates for variations in the volume. This is how the engineers managed to achieve maximum performance at high engine speeds. The engine sound inside the car is carefully controlled to balance the intake sound with the exhaust, which features a 599XX-derived 6-into-1 manifold.
The 599 GTO features the same, lower 60 ms shift times and the possibility to make multiple downshifts as on the 599XX.
