Click above for gallery of the Ferrari 599XX

The doors to the 2009 Geneva Motor Show have yet to be officially flung open, but images have already begun emanating from the Geneva PalExpo center. The latest come courtesy of Asphalte.ch who are right now running around the show floor and taking pictures of everything that's not covered up. These are of the Ferrari 599XX and directly responsible for the pool of drool at my feet right now. Based on the 599 GTB Fiorana, the 599XX features the latest application of Ferrari's extensive research in F1 racing to a road going car. It's clear on looks alone that the 599XX will be the most extreme version of this car to come from Maranello, and we don't even know what's been changed beneath its skin.

Like the Enzo FXX, we expect that the 599XX will be made in extremely limited numbers and sold only to faithful Ferrari owners hand-selected by the company to become Client Test Drivers. We'll have official specifications of the 599XX for you tomorrow, along with our own gallery of high-res live shots. Until then, take a gander at the gallery below and visit Asphalte.ch for more detail shots.

PRESS RELEASE

The new 599 GTB Fiorano Handling GTE Package and the world preview of the 'laboratorio tecnologico' 599XX

Maranello, 27th February 2009 – The 79th Geneva International Motor Show provides the venue for Ferrari to announce two new pieces of good news: the arrival of the sporty, dynamic Handling GT Evoluzione (HGTE) Package for the 599 GTB Fiorano and the world debut of the 599XX which is a technological laboratory aimed at a select group of clients. The latter new car incorporates the most advanced technologies resulting from Ferrari's road-going and F1 research. Many of the technological solutions it carries are being used for the first time and have been developed exclusively for this special car.

The two new arrivals will be introduced to the international media by Ferrari Chairman Luca di Montezemolo on the opening day of the Show, March 3rd, at 10 am.

In addition to the 599 GTB Fiorano equipped with the Handling GTE package and finished in a new three-layer metallic Rosso, and the 599XX in a colour matching the F2008, Ferrari clients and enthusiasts will also be able to admire this single-seater that recently won the Prancing Horse its 16th Constructors' World title. On the stand there
will also be the full range of Ferrari road cars: the Scuderia Spider 16M in a Grigio Titanio livery, the 430 Scuderia in Rosso Corsa and two Grand Tourer models, the Ferrari California in Nero Metallizzato with a Sabbia interior and the flagship 612 Scaglietti. The latter will be displayed in the Atelier, a dedicated area where owners can get a taste of the virtually endless personalisation options on offer to them.

      eat your heart out what. i doubt this will be street legal. its just like the FXX, a track-only, you can only drive when we allow you to cause we can, car.
      • 5 Years Ago
      i'd buy THAT for a dollar.
      • 5 Years Ago
      people are saying this is better than the lambo sv....um ok. everyone must be feeling generous today.
      • 5 Years Ago
      I actually like this better than the FXX.

        That's what I was thinking.

        It seems to me like they have taken anything that was distinctive to Ferraris and thrown it in the trash can. I like Ferraris that look like Ferraris; they have a good thing going.

      I'm sure it's an impressive automobile. It's certainly an impressive manner in which Ferrari can separate tifosi from their cash, further establish the pecking order of Ferrari customers (Glickenhaus is probably at the top of that list), and do it all without having the expense of having to make the cars street legal.

      Sort of takes the concept of a track car to the limit. I wonder if Ferrari will let the owners take possession or will mandate that they drive them only at Fiorina so Ferrari can take telemetry.

      I wanna see the inside of this bad boy.
      • 5 Years Ago
      Wow this thing looks ready for the new GT1 or GT2 class in FIA ..ALMS and Euro LMS........just build a few more and all the parts could be homologated !! I'm definitely impressed. The 550 and 575 Maranello race car by ProDrive looked awesome, and this could carry on that theme,

      I saw the Lambo post before this and went back to that. Looks good, but still love Lambo styling better. To each his own, of course, but can't knock this design :)
      • 5 Years Ago
      wow

      this is my new favorite unattainable dream car
      i cant wait to hear more details about this thing.
        • 5 Years Ago
        HELL YEAH, Already numbered for Dale Earnhardt to come back from the grave and run it!!!
