Lot #789 - The 599's 6.0 Liter V12 still blares its way to an 8,400 rpm redline with an intoxicating scream that must be heard in all its glory to be fully appreciated. The acceleration that companies that scream punches you into your seat with a fitting amount of brutality. Around corners, the 599's superb handling belies its near 2-ton curb weight. Credit for this impressive talent goes to the sophisticated suspension with its Magna Rise active dampers that firm up in milliseconds in response to aggressive cornering, yet ease off for relaxed interstate cruising. Standard equipment on the GTB includes 19" front and 20" rear wheels shod in performance tires, Xenon headlights, an adaptive suspension system, carbon-ceramic brakes, rear parking sensors, automatic dual-zone climate control, power seats, leather upholstery and interior trim, a power adjustable tilt and telescoping steering wheel and auto dimming rearview mirror, a navigation system and an eight-speaker Becker sound system with a CD player. In addition to predictably brutal acceleration, the Ferrari 599 provides a soundtrack to savor. The unmistakable shriek of the V12 under hard acceleration changes to a guttural hum at part throttle and nearly disappears at high cruising speeds, where wind noise is practically the only indication of pace. The F1 gearbox provides instantaneous gear changes that no human could hope to match with their 6-speed. In tight corners, the Ferrari 599 GTB remains composed and poised without a hint of body roll or squealing tires. The adaptive suspension damping works miracles on nearly any surface, swallowing bumps without drama while keeping the car planted in all situations. This car is loaded with options and upgrades such as: F1 transmission, Brembo brakes, power front Recaro seats, Scuderia Ferrari shields, red-faced tachometer, carbon fiber interior trim, carbon fiber steering wheel with shift LED's, carbon fiber shift paddles. Less than 13,000 actual miles.
