Last week my friend sent me a message. "What are you doing this weekend, do you want to come to Spa and the Nurburgring with us?" This friend is Maxige78 who owns a Ferrari 599GTO at the moment. I wasn't sure whether to go at first. Then Max mentioned his friend was bringing his LaFerrari.
When you daily drive a 599 GTO and there's an F40, and SA Aperta, and a 599XX in your garage, what do you buy next? You get Ferrari to build you a one-off, of course.
There are few sounds on the planet more pleasing to a car lover than a Ferrari engine under acceleration.

What, exactly, is springtime? Springtime is when one can finally place one’s Phalænopsis orchids on one’s windowsill, and also when one finds a Ferrari 599 GTO parked below one’s office window.
The Ferrari 599 GTO looks like the fastest prancing stallion ever because, with a Fiorano Circuit time of 1:24, it is. The red-and-black firecracker bowed in China today and we obsessed over every inch.
Nevermind from-afar spy photos, here's the Ferrari 599 GTO completely in the nude. With a presumed 680 HP and lower weight it's not just Italy's worst kept secret, it's the hottest prancing horse since the Enzo. One more picture below.
Ferrari CEO Amadeo Felisa recently confirmed that the Prancing Horse plans to release a streetable version of the 599XX. The car will be dubbed 599 GTO, weigh 3600 pounds, and produce 650 HP. A range-topping Enzo successor is also planned.
