Introduced for the 2007 model year, the Ferrari 599 GTB Fiorano featured an exhilarating naturally aspirated 6.0-liter Tipo F140 V-12—a powerplant derived from the radical mid-engine Enzo. Cradled in an all-new chassis with 612 horsepower and 448 pound-feet of torque on tap, the engine provided 599 pilots with supercar abilities. Drivers could easily best the iconic F40 from the comforts of a well-appointed interior befitting a flagship Ferrari gran turismo.
Notably, the 599 GTB was also the end of a celebrated era, being the last front-engine, 12-cylinder Ferrari offered with a traditional six-speed gated manual transmission. The alternative was the six-speed “F1” automated manual, which prevailed among buyers of the time. Consequently, a mere 30 599 GTBs were equipped with the traditional six-speed; of those, only 20 were delivered new to North America.
Each manual transmission-equipped 599 GTB is coveted today for its appeal as a superb driver’s car and its special significance as the last of its breed, but the limited use, exceptional condition, and history of scrupulous maintenance make this example, chassis 150861, particularly compelling.
Delivered new via The Auto Gallery of Woodland Hills, California, it is finished in a Grigio Silverstone Metallic over a black Daytona sport seat interior. Significant options include carbon ceramic brakes, a $18,550 feature on their own, as well as yellow brake calipers, Daytona-style seats with dark gray inserts, and a Bose hi-fi system with Becker six-CD changer. Extra-cost “Scuderia Ferrari” shields on the front quarter panels complete the exterior. As a copy of the original vehicle invoice attests, optional equipment brought the car from its $264,034 base price to a total cost of $312,613.
Having been driven under 4,000 miles from new, the rarity of this 599 GTB is matched only by its exceptional cosmetic and mechanical condition. Service documents accompanying the sale reveal consistent maintenance from new, continuing throughout the care of each previous owner up to, and including, the consignor. The result of this upkeep regimen is a stunning 599 GTB that presents in showroom condition, both inside and out as well as under the hood.
This 2007 599 GTB offers an experience that is unavailable in Ferrari’s current lineup: Modern power and performance with the tactile engagement of a traditional manual transmission, all set to a wonderful naturally aspirated V-12 soundtrack. Its sale is accompanied by owner’s manuals, tools in a leather tool roll, air compressor, electrical service kit, charger, car cover in Ferrari-branded bag, a copy of the original vehicle invoice, and service documentation from new. This spectacular 599 GTB will make a suitable addition to any stable of modern Ferraris—and be an absolute thrill to enjoy on road or track.
Put simply, Ferrari is unlikely to ever build a car quite like this again; this example, with its combination of desirable features, limited use, and a documented history of painstaking maintenance, represents an opportunity not to be missed by a serious tifoso.
