The Ferrari 599XX was launched at the Geneva Motor Show 2009. With its 700hp and full track setup it provided a small group of loyal Ferrari customers with the ultimate track car and a 599XX racing series. The last two years clients and fans have seen the 599XX at various race tracks around the world including Paul Ricard, Spa-Francorchamps, Nurburgring, Laguna Seca and Valencia. The Ferrari 599XX has completed the Nordschleife circuit in a time of 6 minutes and 58.16 seconds – the second fastest time ever recorded for a production-derived sports car at the time.
Thomas Quintin visited a lot of the races and shot some of the most amazing Ferrari 599XX shots you can find. From backfiring 599XXs with glowing brake discs in Valencia to night shots at Paul Ricard and 599XXs at the famous Nurburgring carousel. We gathered some of the best Ferrari 599 XX shots in the gallery below. Despite the 599 GTO’s best efforts we would still love to see a street legal version of the Ferrari 599XX as an ultimate hommage to our favourite Ferrari of the last few years.
