Do you remember the scene in Pulp Fiction when Samuel L. Jackson called his wallet his “Bad Mutha Fucka”? Well, if he had this Ferrari 599 GTB Fiorano, I know he would have given it the same name. Imagine this, your rollin down Sunset Blvd in this beautiful beast and a Civic full of drunk teenie boppers pull up next to you screaming and flash sexual gestures. Do you A:Think these girls are young and drunk I will leave them alone or B:Think these girls are young and drunk and I am in a Ferrari 599 GTB Fiorano… Its Goin Down!
Besides the fringe benefits that come along with flossin a dope ride, let me break down the specs on this vehicle:
It shares much of its chassis with the 612 Scaglietti 2+2, though with a shorter 110 in (2750 mm) wheelbase, new bodywork sculpted by Pininfarina. Like the 612 Scaglietti, the Fiorano’s front midship with rear transaxle arrangement gives the 599 an ideal weight distribution of 47/53 front/rear. The curb weight is expected to be about 3700 pounds, which will put the aluminum 599 GTB at roughly 300 fewer pounds than the 508-hp 575M Maranello.
The 599’s Enzo-sourced Tipo F133F 6.0 L (5999 cc) V12 engine produces 620 CV (612 hp/456 kW), making it the most-powerful series production Ferrari road car. Its 448 ftÃƒâ€šÃ‚Â·lbf (608 NÃƒâ€šÃ‚Â·m) of torque will also be a high 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 since the mid-mounted position allowed it to be so). The company claims a 3.7 second sprint to 100 km/h (62 mph) and 11.0 to 200 km/h (124 mph).

A traditional 6-speed manual transmission as well as Ferrari’s 6-speed sequential manual gearbox called F1 SuperFast will be offered. The e-diff active differential from the F430 will not be used. However, the manettino concept first seen in the F430 will also appear in this car. Ferrari will reportedly source the MagneRide active suspension system from Delphi Corporation.The Fiorano will also see the debut of Ferrari’s new traction control system, called F1-Trac. Reportedly tuned using inputs from 7-time Formula 1 World Champion Michael Schumacher, the system will supposedly allow a competent driver to lap the Fiorano test track at just 1 second behind Michael’s time.
