Bianco Avus with Rosso hide and contrasting Bianco piping F1 paddle shift, SuperFast gearbox, LED shift lights, F1-Trac stability Truly sensational performance: 0-60 in 3.5sec, 0-100 in 7.4 and 205mph. Daytona seats, carbon dash, and uprated Bose sound system Accompanied by its original Ferrari leather wallet and manuals The 599 replaced the 575 in the summer of 2006 and brought the front-engined V12 Ferrari slap bang into the modern age. Whereas the 550 and 575 always felt like modern classics, the 599 was every inch a new-age Ferrari: all-aluminium chassis, lashings of glossy carbon fibre, F1 SuperFast gearbox, F1-Trac stability and traction control, magnetic semi-active dampers and carbon-ceramic brakes, all wrapped in aggressive, aero-optimised bodywork with minimal overhangs and maximum presence. Top billing, though, went to the engine - a lightly modified version of the Enzo's 6-litre V12 with a mighty 611bhp at 7600rpm, endowing Ferrari's new series-production flagship with truly sensational performance: 0-60 in 3.5sec, 0-100 in 7.4 and 205mph. This, left-hand drive Ferrari 599 GTB was sold new on 12th March 2009 by a Ferrari main agent in Dubai. Finished in the sparkling colour combination of Bianco Avus with Rosso hide interior, this example has covered just over 16,300 miles. Factory specifications include Daytona seats, carbon dash centre section and driving zone, uprated Bose sound system, F1 paddle-shift with carbon steering wheel and LED shift lights. A good service history accompanies this Ferrari and there are supplying dealer stamps from 2010, 2011, 2012. Latterly maintained by respected marque specialists R&D Automotive @ 13000 miles. Supplied with its original leather wallet, all manuals, original service book, spare key, navigation CD, radio key card, high-fi warranty card, and current MoT. The 599GTB Fiorano offers a combination of long-distance touring ability and all-out supercar performance that few cars can match and we can think of no finer touring companion for this Summer.
