Click above for high-res gallery of this reflective 599

For some Ferrari faithful, every prancing horse that comes out of the factory should be painted in red. Yellow, black, blue and grey are just plain heretical, and perhaps that's why some of the purest Ferraris, the F40 and 288 GTO, were only offered in red. Well, if anything but Rosso Corsa bothers you, then this particular Ferrari will give you the shivers. We can't imagine what inspired this Saudi Arabian Ferrari owner to chrome his 599 GTB Fiorano, but it definitely reflects his personality. We also have to wonder if it helps keep the car cooler in the hot sun. No matter his reasoning, he's guaranteed himself plenty of looks.

      I want to see it after a couple of Sand Storms get done working over that shine. Windy and Sandy part of the world over there. It'll look like a refugee from mad max film then. Might actually be an improvement.

      This is what your oil money buys.

      it must be blinding out in the sun no? that pic seems to be taken just so.. mainly in the shade.
        • 6 Years Ago
        I think they're probably fairly used to the blinding sun, hence the pitch black windows.

      Wow, this is so anti-Ferrari. Heresy against the car god Enzo.

      Wouldn't something like this befit something like a Lamborghini, not a Ferrari?

      It's a primal thing. Shiny = rich

      In my heart, I know it's tacky. But damn, at the same time, I can't help but think that looks cool.

        it looks weird, but at the same time its VERY cool.
        • 6 Years Ago
        I agree. It's odd but it really doesn't look that bad. Looks like a show car on the auto show circuit. It's certainly flashy and very look at me but then again what Ferrari isn't. :)

        Thought blinging that out would be the worst idea ever but it actually looks nice.

        Hey Vintage...

        Are you talking about the middle-east, or Texas?
        • 6 Years Ago
        I am not a racist person, but the total extravagant lifestyle of some of the middle east while the rest perish in extreme poverty and the fanatical religous people are really starting to irk me. They have most the Veyrons. They have all our gas money. They want to buy the Chrysler building.

        UGH. If it wasn't for their oil they'd be dirt poor and we wouldn't even deal with them.

        I like it! It's kinda cool! Illegal in the US but cool!
        • 6 Years Ago
        I wouldn't want to be in traffic behind this guy.

      It looks like one those chromed special edition Hot Wheels.
