Tomorrow is the start of what are looking forward to for a rather long time, the start of the Geneva Auto Salon. No need to tell you that the car manufacturer’s will do their best to impress all visitors! Ferrari is one of them, they will bring two special versions of their 599 GTB. Starting with the 599 HGTE or Handling GT Evoluzione in long. This car is equiped with lots of carbon fibre, racing seats, 20 inch and 5 spoke wheels with cup-tires and the new Metallic Rosso paint. The engine itself hasn’t been touched but Ferrari promisses a “better” exhaust sound.
2nd one up is the 599XX, the Laboratorio Tecnologico’ or easier said, the 599 track version. About this one isn’t known much beside it will only be sold to ‘special Ferrari customers’.
Stay tuned for tomorrow when we get this confirmed with live pictures!
The 79th Geneva International Motor Show provides the venue for Ferrari to announce two new pieces of good news: the arrival of the sporty, dynamic Handling GT Evoluzione (HGTE) Package for the 599 GTB Fiorano and the world debut of the 599XX which is a technological laboratory aimed at a select group of clients. The latter new car incorporates the most advanced technologies resulting from Ferrari’s road-going and F1 research. Many of the technological solutions it carries are being used for the first time and have been developed exclusively for this special car.
The two new arrivals will be introduced to the international media by Ferrari Chairman Luca di Montezemolo on the opening day of the Show, March 3rd, at 10 am.
In addition to the 599 GTB Fiorano equipped with the Handling GTE package and finished in a new three-layer metallic Rosso, and the 599XX in a colour matching the F2008, Ferrari clients and enthusiasts will also be able to admire this single-seater that recently won the Prancing Horse its 16th Constructors’ World title. On the stand there will also be the full range of Ferrari road cars: the Scuderia Spider 16M in a Grigio Titanio livery, the 430 Scuderia in Rosso Corsa and two Grand Tourer models, the Ferrari California in Nero Metallizzato with a Sabbia interior and the flagship 612 Scaglietti. The latter will be displayed in the Atelier, a dedicated area where owners can get a taste of the virtually endless personalisation options on offer to them.
