FERRARI 599XX

This is Car No. 1 out of 30




INTRODUCTION

Ferrari 599XX, while based on the Ferrari 599 GTB Fiorano with the same transaxle layout and engine type, is an extreme track car. Ferrari's engineers have carried out extensive work on the engine's combustion chambers and inlet and exhaust tracts. These modifications, combined with the fact that internal attrition has been reduced and the maximum revs have been boosted to 9,000 rpm, helped achieve the target power output of 730 hp at 9,000 rpm. Particular attention was also paid to cutting the weight of the engine unit components. This was achieved both by optimising forms, in the shape of a new crankshaft and adopting exclusive materials, as in the carbon fibre used for the intake plenums. A new gearbox shift strategy cuts overall gear change times to 60 milliseconds.
