There's a new petition sitting on the desk of the National Highway and Safety Administration to import extra Ferrari 599 GTOs into the United States. It is without a doubt pointless and uneccessary, but it happens to serve as an excellent explanation of the absurd import laws keeping some of the weirdest, coolest,…
Maybe this is just me being silly, but I always felt like the big front-engined V12 Ferraris were a bit overshadowed by the smaller, mid-engined V8s. The Ferrari 599 GTO can definitely hold its own, however.
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.

When they aren't setting themselves on fire, it appears another one of the Ferrari 599's favorite past times is terrifying children.

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.
If you need another reason to lust after the Ferrari 599 GTO this video provides several. Add the fact that the 599 GTO spits fire to the already long list of why we want one. (Hat tip to hoonthatsc!)
At what point does a car review simply become car porn? We're guessing that line is crossed the second the Ferrari 599 GTO enters a tunnel. The most powerful road-legal Ferrari ever sounds like pure sex.
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.
