- One of 10 cars built with manual gearbox to European spec
- 31,000 km from new
- Supplied with its original fitted luggage
With the 550 Maranello introduced in 1996, Ferrari revived its tradition of powerful front-engined V12 coupés, following the magnificent 275 GTB and Daytona. As for its predecessors, Pininfarina's design emphasised its long bonnet, a potent symbol of its exceptional performance. The ultimate evolution of the glorious lineage of front-engined Ferrari coupés, the 599 GTB Fiorano combined power, elegance and outstanding handling. A member of the very select "200 mph" club, it served as the basis for several models, beginning with two amazing machines, the experimental 599 FXX and the 599 GTO, which confirmed the berlinetta's extraordinary qualities and its special place - recognised by the most discerning enthusiasts - in Ferrari's range.
This 599 is one of just ten European cars equipped with manual transmission. It was delivered new in Italy finished in titanium grey with a beige leather interior to Signor Francesco L., and registered on 2 October 2007. Its current owner, a lover of Italian cars and especially of Ferraris, bought it directly from Signor L. on 8 October 2014. It has been maintained by Modena Cars, the official Ferrari dealer in Geneva (with invoices on file), and will be supplied with its complete document wallet with manuals and service book. This exceptionally rare Ferrari has covered only 31,000 km since leaving the factory and is in exceptional condition inside and out. It will be sold with the set of Schedoni luggage specific to the model, as well as both sets of keys. The last model from Ferrari to be offered with a manual gearbox, the 599 - and in particular this superb example - is a car for the purist who will never tire of hearing the click of the metal gear lever in its metal gate.
Lot from outside the EU: Customs duties of 10% will be levied on the total hammer price excluding taxes. VAT, at the current rate of 20%, will be calculated on the basis of the hammer price plus the customs duties mentioned above.
