The Ferrari 599 GTB Fiorano was designed with several specific objectives in mind: to increase driving pleasure, to guarantee performance (courtesy of technology transfers from the F1 single seaters), and to ensure comfort, ergonomics and safety. The Ferrari 599 GTB Fiorano sprinted from 0 to 100 km/h in 3.7 seconds and had a top speed in excess of 330 km/h. The car took its name from the Fiorano circuit Ferrari uses to hone the performance of its track and road cars. ‘GTB’ stands for Gran Turismo Berlinetta, after the most famous Ferrari berlinettas ever built, and ’599′ is the displacement of the V12 engine divided by 10. The maximum torque figure is 608 Nm (448 lb/ft) at 5600 rpm. Top speed is over 205 mph and the 0 - 62 mph acceleration took just 3.7 seconds!
With the Ferrari 599 GTB Fiorano, Pininfarina designers wanted to explore wholly innovative lines. As ever, this was not an isolated process, but took place alongside optimisation of the car’s exterior aerodynamics, which were designed to deliver cutting-edge down-force figures. The cabin too was given an original aerodynamic design. The wraparound rear window is hugged by two flying buttresses, which channel air towards the wing strip, adding a highly original (yet functional) twist. When it came to the rear of the car, it seemed time to depart from the now signature circular quad rear lights and low-fixed licence plate.
One of the great strengths of the 599 GTB is the F1-type gearbox. The engineering team for the Ferrari 599 GTB Fiorano designed the astonishing F1-SuperFast gearbox. The gearbox’s name encompasses the two key concepts behind its design: the fact that it is derived from the ultra-competitive world of Formula 1 and the faster-than-ever gear shifting times it delivers. In fact, it was one of the Ferrari 599 GTB Fiorano’s most innovative and exclusive features and was a world first on a road going car.
