Fastest road-legal Ferrari 599 GTO – Sizzling hot beauty
Fast supercars haunt the fancies of many, but rare to get these supercars on road. However, Ferrari 599 GTO is a real speed monster, designated as the fastest ever road legal car. Not only speed, but the beauty of this beast is charming –red ferocious design inspired from 599XX.
About its marvelous capability Jalopnik writes:
The 599 GTO’s front tires are now 285/30 on a 9.5” channel with 315/35 on an 11.5” channel at the rear — with all four measuring in at 20”. Roll rigidity is greater at the rear to minimize understeer. These solutions should improved lateral grip and quicker turn in. And then there’s the powerplant — an Enzo-derived 6-liter V12 will let the 599 GTO take to the streets with 670 galloping horses and 457 lb/ft of torque to motivate its “svelte” 3,296 lb body. That means this latest V12 berlinetta delivers a 0-to-100 km/h acceleration time of just 3.35 seconds and a max speed of over 208 MPH. But, just as importantly, a Fiorano lap time of just one minute and 24 seconds — making it the fastest road-going model in the history of Ferrari.
Now this is called something really sizzling. The car will be showcased at this month’s 2010 Beijing Auto Show.
