Ferrari 599 XX 'Evo'
The Ferrari 599 XX Evoluzione was categorically NOT a road car. It was the hardest of hardcore front-engine, rear-wheel-drive V12s from Ferrari and remained on a tight leash from Maranello at all times. If you bought one, you could only drive it at official Ferrari XX days. If you did want to drive it outside of the factory events, Ferrari would fly the car and engineers armed with those nifty red Acer laptops you saw plugged into its F1 cars so you could have a go. But in no way was it ever intended – or certified – for the road.
In Japan, people always don’t play by the rules.
