Ferrari 599 GTB news - New Ferrari steals the show - 2006

While Ferrari has been wowing the crowds in Detroit
with its display of FXX, F430 and 612 cars, it turns out this is all smoke and
 mirrors.

The real star of Ferrari’s year is the 599 GTB and
it’s not even at the Detroit show.

The 599 is a 620bhp front-engined V12 sports car that
will replace the ageing 575, and the name comes from the 5999cc capacity of the
 engine.

This engine makes the 599 the most powerful V12 road
car Ferrari has ever sold to the public.

Styled by Pininfarina, the 599 will make its first
public appearance at the Geneva motor show in March before going on sale later
this year with a rumoured price tag of £170,000.
