Description

HGTE fitted 2010Finished in Nero with Bordeaux leather and carbon fibre Daytonaseats with black insertsMain dealer servicedin Singapore with a recent Graypaul Ferrari service in 2018UK registered on 01/07/2018. The accompanying service history supportsthe mileage of 12,600kmThe 599's 6.0 litre V12 engine was capable of 0-62mph in an incredible 3.7 secondsSupplied with book pack, UK V5c and a Shiltech condition report commissioned for the saleThe Ferrari 599 took over from its predecessor, the 575, in the summer of 2006 and brought the front-engined V12 Grand Tourer into the modern age. Whereas the 550 and 575, even at their introduction, always felt like modern classics, the 599 was every inch a new-age Ferrari. The all-aluminium chassis, F1 SuperFast gearbox, F1-Trac stability and traction control, magnetic semi-active dampers and carbon-ceramic brakes, all wrapped in aggressive, aero-optimised bodywork with minimal overhangs and maximum presence. Top billing, though, went to the engine - a lightly modified version of the Enzo's 6-litre V12 with a mighty 611bhp at 7600rpm, endowing Ferrari's new series-production flagship with truly sensational performance with 0-62 in 3.7 seconds and a top speed of 205mph.Delivered in right-hand drive to its first owner through Ferrari Singapore in October 2008 and fitted with the HGTE handling package in 2010 by Ferrari Singapore. The Handling Turismo Evoluzione package was designed to deliver a more dynamic driving experience. The technical modifications included a modified set-up with stiffer springs and rear anti-roll bar as well as new calibration settings for the magnetorheological shock absorbers and most notably yellow brake callipers. The striking interior is a wonderful blend of dark red leather and carbon fibre trim, particularly to the dashboard, doors and kick plates. The steering wheel is also finished in carbon-fibre and incorporates LED change-up lights.The car was UK-registered on the 1st July 2018 and dispatched to Graypaul Nottingham Ferrari for a service. Present are the service booklet, original handbooks, and print outs of the maintenance history. The MOT is valid until May 2020 and on our recommendation, the vendor has agreed to get the car inspected by an independent specialist. The report by the Ferrari specialists Shiltech can be made available to interested parties before the sale.The 599 GTB design is arguably the prettiest of the latter-day Ferraris and suits this colour combination perfectly.
