Introduced for the 2007 model year, the Ferrari 599 GTB Fiorano featured an exhilarating naturally aspirated 6.0-liter Tipo F140 V-12—a powerplant derived from the radical mid-engine Enzo. Cradled in an all-new extruded aluminum chassis with 612 horsepower and 448 pound-feet of torque on tap, the engine provided 599 pilots with supercar abilities. Drivers could easily best the iconic F40 from the comforts of a well-appointed interior befitting a flagship Ferrari gran turismo. A pair of downforce-inducing rear buttresses that extend from the C-pillar of the roofline work in tandem with the car’s aerodynamically shielded undercarriage to, quite literally, suck the car to the road, all while contributing to the car’s standout aggressive looks.

Notably, the 599 GTB was also the end of a celebrated era, being the last front-engine, 12-cylinder Ferrari offered with a traditional six-speed gated manual transmission. The alternative was the six-speed “F1” automated manual, which prevailed among buyers of the time. Consequently, a mere 30 599 GTBs were equipped with the traditional six-speed; of those, only 20 were delivered new to North America.

Each manual transmission-equipped 599 GTB is coveted today for its appeal as a superb driver’s car and its special significance as the last of its breed, but the limited use and excellent colors make this example, chassis 150866, particularly compelling.

Delivered new via Ferrari of Atlanta, it is finished in the elegant and uncommon color combination of Blu Mirabeau over a Grigio leather interior. Significant options include carbon ceramic brakes, a $18,550 feature on their own, as well as black brake calipers, a yellow tachometer face, carbon fiber interior trim package, black stitching, black carpets, Parking sensors, and a Bose Hi-Fi system with Becker six-CD changer.

Chassis 150866 remained with its original owner until 2018, when it was purchased by the consignor and retained within their finely curated collection of late-model sports cars and manual-transmission Ferrari models. Having been driven just under 1,680 miles from new at cataloguing time, the rarity of this 599 GTB is matched only by its short chain of two recorded owners to the present.

This 2007 599 GTB Fiorano offers an experience that is unavailable in Ferrari’s current lineup: Modern power and performance with the tactile engagement of a traditional manual transmission, all set to a wonderful naturally aspirated V-12 soundtrack. It is a spectacular grand-touring model that will make a suitable addition to any stable of modern Ferraris—and be an absolute thrill to enjoy.

Put simply, Ferrari is unlikely to ever build a car quite like this again; this example, with its combination of extremely desirable features, excellent color combination, and limited use represents an opportunity not to be missed by a serious tifoso.To view this car and others currently consigned to this auction, please visit the RM website at rmsothebys.com/auctions/mo24/.
