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...

If we were being cynical, all Ferrari needs to do here is make the standard 599 GTB a tad lighter, a bit more powerful and harder-looking, then plonk that exclusive badge on it - and the cars would sell out even with this heavy price tag of £299,280 in base spec. And all 599 examples did indeed sell out, within months of the car being announced. Wow, 599 x £299,280 equals £179,700,000 of cash, and why not? This company, like any other, is in business to turn a profit. Still, it's a big badge to live up to.
