You’ve heard a lot of ranting about how a three-pedal stick shift could become some kind of expensive, exclusive feature rather than a maligned and dying standard transmission. Here’s some proof.
Driving a Ferrari 599 lets everyone know how much money you make. Covering your Ferrari 599 in velvet, however, lets everyone know that you make so much money you are no longer restricted by the bounds of taste and civility.
Remember when Chris Harris wrote his tell-all screed outlining precisely How Ferrari Spins? Well, he wanted access to a Ferrari again, so he did what any other Maranello-blackballed auto journo with a well-managed awesome-car fund might do: He bought a 599.
Without all its electronic minders, the Ferrari 599 is an absolute monster. It is also the last big Ferrari to come with a manual. Would you teach your daughter (or son) how to drive stick on a 612 horsepower GT?
If you're an affluent car enthusiast who has always desired a vintage Volvo station wagon that has no problem embarrassing a new Ferrari in a straight line (who hasn't), you're in luck. The car you see here, which may be the only one in the world that fits this description, is currently for sale.
A Jalopnik reader caught this Ferrari 599 crashed off the road near Jacksonville, Florida. Apparently 612 horsepower and rear-wheel-drive are a bit of a handful in the rain. Who knew?
When they aren't setting themselves on fire, it appears another one of the Ferrari 599's favorite past times is terrifying children.

Amazing video from Tunisia shows ousted Tunisian president Ben Ali's Ferrari being taken away from his compound using a giant forklift. They couldn't find the keys?

Good morning Fiorano! A FerrariChat member caught what looks to be Ferrari's 599 GTB Fiorano update being flogged on, you guessed it, the Fiorano test track. Is it the next 599, or the first look at the upcoming 599 hybrid?
A Ferrari 599 owner in Australia drifted into oncoming traffic and hit two motorcyclists head-on in October. One rider was in a coma for two weeks and suffered a broken back and hip. The Ferrari owner? Back on the road.
This is the Ferrari 599 SA Aperta, the drop-top roadster version of the 599. Want one? Tough. Even before it makes its public debut next week in Paris, Ferrari's already sold every one of them.
With news that Ferrari held a special gathering for extra-special owners at Pebble Beach to show off the Ferrari 599 roadster slowly leaking out, we tapped our top Ferrari source (guess who!) to find out if it's true. It is.
