The Ferrari 599 was the marque’s two-seat flagship, replacing the 575M Maranello in 2006 as a 2007 model. Styled by Pininfarina under the direction of Ferrari’s Frank Stephenson, the 599 GTB debuted at the Geneva Motor Show in February 2006. It is named for its total engine displacement (5999 cc), Gran Turismo Berlinetta nature, and the Fiorano Circuit test track used by Ferrari.
The Tipo F140 C 6.0 L (5999 cc) V12 engine produces a maximum 612 hp, making it the most powerful series production Ferrari road car of the time. At the time of its introduction, this was one of the few engines whose output exceeded 100 hp per liter of displacement without any sort of forced-induction mechanism such as supercharging or turbocharging. Its 448 ft·lbf of torque was also a record for Ferrari’s GT cars. Most of the modifications to the engine were done to allow it to fit in the Fiorano’s engine bay (the original Enzo version could be taller as it would not block forward vision due to its mid-mounted position).
A traditional 6-speed manual transmission as well as Ferrari’s 6-speed called “F1 SuperFast” is offered. The Fiorano also sees the debut of Ferrari’s new traction control system, F1-Trac.

In a rare shade of F1 designated Rosso Scuderia this 599 is defined by a vibrant shade that perfectly accentuates each one of the GT’s beautiful curves. The paintwork presents in a uniform, consistent shade throughout having been carefully stored in a private garage or carcoon from new.
A huge rear diffuser starts to offer some indication of how Ferrari would develop this GT to offer dynamism alongside traditional GT traits, although it is the sensational rear buttresses that court most of the styling praise. Ferrari aerodynamicists could provide evidence that compressing and accelerating the airflow between the buttresses and the cabin created a vortex over the bootlid that developed downforce without generating drag.
This 599 features a quite stunning combination of Beige and Rosso leather; a unique specification that features a three tiered dash, leather headliner and luggage shelf accompanied by Rosso stitching throughout the entire cabin. The carbon Daytona seats retain a matte effect throughout, exhibiting original shape and integrity without wear to report. Red seat belts traverse the beige leather door cards, linking the rosso headliner to the red carpets.
Ferrari’s collaboration with Becker provides the musical entertainment and is neatly stored under a carbon fibre cover.
The interior is unmarked and like new in every sense, the owners careful car usage and utmost care shown by factory plastic protection throughout the car.
ENGINE & TRANSMISSION
This sensational V12 engine is very closely related to the Enzo and lost none of its intake rasp or divine exhaust note; layers of torque and bhp exchange roles at 3k, 5k and 7k rpm’s.
There’s no question that the F1-SuperFast gearbox and bespoke dynamic stability system plays it’s role in contributing Supercar acceleration to GT refinement; a mere 100 milliseconds – compares with 150ms for the Enzo and 250ms for the 575.
Having been over serviced throughout it’s life the drivetrain and engine are in excellent health.
WHEELS, TYRES & BRAKES
The Monolithic rims present in excellent health, free of marks or scrapes with bolts and badges again in as new condition,
Matching PZero rubber adorns all four corners showing even tread depth appropriate for many more miles to come.
Sold new to Sheikh Mubarak in April of 2008 this 599 has been serviced by the main agent on two occasions before the 12,500 mile service with Graypaul Edinburgh in June of 2014.
The following year, specialist JMH Automotive carried out an annual service as well as attending to steering rack boots, track rod ends, front ball joints and both alternator and compressor belts.
A host of supplementary invoices for detailing products, carcoon and battery conditioner offer an indication as to how the car has been treated over recent years, whilst the full book pack and spare key are both present in the history file.
A GCC Conformity certificate from Ferrari S.p.A also confirms build and specification.
