Ferrari 599 GTO driven
A Ferrari GTO is a rare beast – this 599 version is only the third in 63 years. TopGear tracks it down in Tuscany...

The car is immediately welcoming and comforting. I love the 599. It's a proper front-engined, rear-drive car, a big one, with plenty of room inside. The beautiful steering wheel, complete with red starter button and a five-stage ‘manettino' switch, adjusts perfectly for reach. I bring it close, set the manettino to ‘race', which means louder exhausts, harder dampers and ideal slip in the traction control.
