Description

One of just ten manual-transmission examples delivered to Europe. The final V12 model equipped with a manual gearboxLeft-hand drive and finished in stunning Fiorano Rosso with a Cuoio interior prior to being delivered new to SwitzerlandJust 19,000km from new, UK-registered with a full service history, VIP CD, build brochureand a full set of bespoke luggageDue to their sheer rarity, the manual gearbox cars are seldom offered for sale, making this a true modern-day collectableWith the vast majority of Ferraris customers now trending towards the popular F1-style transmissions, modern Ferraris fitted with a traditional, gated manual transmission are becoming few and far between. In the case of the 599 GTB, only 30 cars worldwide were ordered with manual transmission, tenof which were delivered new to Europe.Silverstone Auctions are delighted to offer this extremely rare and desirable left-hand drive 599 GTB, which is one of the ten European examples fitted with the desirable manual transmission. Originally delivered new to Switzerland, this 599 was bought by our vendor, the second owner, from that country and then brought home to the UK in February 2018 and promptly UK-registered. It has formed part of his significant Ferrari collection ever since.Just 19,000 km (11,800 miles) have been covered since being delivered in 2008 and, as you can imagine for such a special car, it has been regularly cared for and looked after over that period. Further details in respect of the cars history can be seen in the accompanying owners file at our documents desk or interested parties are welcome to enquire beforehand. Indeed, this special car is being stored with Silverstone Auctions prior to the sale so is available for personal inspectionupon request.Finished in the stunning combination of Fiorano Rosso with a Cuoio interior and accompanied by a full luggage set, full build brochure and the aforementioned history file, this extremely rare car will reward any inspection. A front-engined, normally-aspirated, V12 Ferrari mated to a manual gearbox perhaps may be unobtanium in the future, making this a true modern-day collectable.
