GTO is the signature to have in the Ferrari world. First presented at the Beijing Motor Show in 2010, the 599 GTO was intended as a tribute to its predecessors the 250 and 288. An evolution of the 599XX track car, it had the same, if slightly tempered, ultra-sporty personality. It was powered by a magnificent V12 6-litre engine at 65°, producing a whopping 670 bhp. Coupled to the F1 SuperFast sequential-shift gearbox, it was capable of an extraordinary performance: the GTO went from 0 to 100 km/h in 3.35 seconds and had a top speed of over 335 km/h. The 20-inch wheels and carbon features, including a huge air extractor, spoke volumes about the car's temperament as did the interior, with its fabric and Alcantara bucket seats and an abundance of carbon fibre. The Manettino, positioned on the steering wheel, had five settings allowing the driver to adjust the car's behaviour. The gearshift paddles offered incredible precision and optimized downshift. The carbon-ceramic discs provided an effective and durable braking system. The tour de force for Ferrari, in creating this GTO, was to build such an incredibly powerful car that was so easy to drive.
The Ferrari 599 GTO on offer is originally French. It was delivered new on 9 June 2010 by the Toulouse dealer, Modena Sport, to its first owner in Carcassonne. It passed to its second owner a year later, when it had covered 6,727 km. The current owner acquired the car in 2015, with just over 10,000 km on the clock. It is presented in the particularly desirable colour scheme of "Rosso Corsa" with black interior, and matt, dark Gray "Grigio Silverstone " roof, matching the central strip on the bonnet. The service book reveals regular maintenance within the authorized Ferrari network. The car is in excellent overall condition, in line with its low mileage. The car was given Permaguard 5000 treatment in 2011. It will be delivered with its Ferrari battery charger, made-to-measure cover, folder of manuals and spare set of keys. Just 599 examples of this model were produced worldwide and it quickly became a collector's item. Widely recognised as one of the best Ferrari of recent decades, the GTO already has legendary status for marque collectors. This French example, with low mileage, has much to offer to the most demanding enthusiast.
