By continuing a strong legacy of front-engined V-12 berlinettas, Ferrari surpassed its already superb 575 Maranello by producing what is widely considered the last great analog Ferrari, the 599 GTB Fiorano. Upon its debut in February 2006, the 599 would stand as Ferrari’s premier sports car, culminating in just under 50 years of design and engineering excellence.

From the outset, the 599 was to be designed from the ground up. Frank Stephenson of the legendary design firm, Pininfarina, oversaw the 599’s aggressive, muscular looks. His résumé precedes itself as he also penned the F430 and Maserati’s incredible MC12. The beautiful twin bi-xenon headlights work in conjunction with the slanted hood, evoking the sense of pure speed. This is followed by the flying buttress-like “sail panels” in the rear, which further accentuates the car’s stellar looks.

At the heart of the 599 lies a monstrous 5.9-liter V-12 engine producing 612 hp at 7,600 rpm and 448 foot-pounds of torque at 5,600 rpm. The engine is mated to a six-speed semi-automatic electro-hydraulic F1 transmission that can shift in a blistering 100 milliseconds. Coupled with a lightweight aluminum chassis and magnetorheological suspension system, the 599 is able to propel itself from 0–60 in less than 3.2 seconds and to a top speed of 205 miles per hour.

The 599 GTB Fiorano offered is a true testament to the model. Finished in Vinaccia, an exceedingly dark burgundy color, over a contrasting tan interior, the car is presented as one of the most pristine examples available. The unusual special-order color is from the palette of Ferrari colors offered in the 1950s through the '60s and the personalized nameplate on the glovebox suggests the car was special-ordered by a “Christopher T. Charlton.” The GTB features carbon ceramic brakes by Brembo with silver painted calipers, which are wrapped with beautiful silver Fiorano wheels. The car also proudly wears its Scuderia shields on the front wings. However, it is the car’s interior that separates itself from its contemporaries. The spotless interior features carbon fiber trim on the dash and steering wheel. Furthermore, the carbon fiber seats feature Ferrari’s signature ‘Daytona’ inserts. To further complement the outstanding quality, the Ferrari includes a full host of owner’s manuals, spare keys, and its requisite tool kit.

Presented with just under 3,000 miles, this immaculate 599 is arguably one of the finest grand turismo berlinettas ever produced by Ferrari and would be an outstanding addition to any fine collection.
