My wife is very lucky there isn’t a spare $500,000 sitting under the mattress right now. If there were, I’d be on the phone right now trying to snag me one of the 599 new Ferrari 599 GTOs being built. The car will officially debut later this month at the Beijing Auto Show.
The 599 GTO is faster than the Enzo. It has a 6.0-liter V12 engine making 670 horsepower. It weighs a fairly scant 3,295 pounds. The V12 can move that weight to 60 mph in 3.35 seconds. The aerodynamic bodywork, vented hood, and side sills combine to form a work of art that is part classic Ferrari, part sexy Aston Martin.
It would succeed in very politely asking me to hand over 460,000 of my most treasured dollar bills. (The remaining $40,000 would probably be reserved for the first oil change.)
Can anybody seriously doubt Ferrari’s reign in supercardom?
