Ferrari 599 GTB Fiorano Comte Noir by Graf Weckerle – Click above for high-res image gallery

We're not saying we're psychic or anything, but after years of bringing you the best – and the worst – from the automotive industry, we're getting a bit of a handle on what you, our dedicated readers, are thinking. So here goes: you were thinking that what the Ferrari 599 GTB Fiorano really needed was a set of fleur-de-lis wheels.

Okay, so maybe we're a little off. But those pentagram alloys on the original 599 didn't do it any favors. And these? They take 20 days to build. They're forged from aluminum and titanium and have a two-tone anthracite and black finish. But the Comte Noir (French for "black count") edition Fiorano is about more than those fancy wheels.

German tuner Graf Weckerle has also upped the 6-liter V12's output from 620 horsepower to a whopping 835. No word on exactly how they did that, but we wouldn't be surprised if they turned to an experienced Ferrari tuner like Edo Competition or Novitec Rosso for assistance. They've also mounted a new coil-over suspension and adjustable shocks, and hopefully upgraded the brakes to go with the extra power. Otherwise those pretty flowery wheels won't do you any good as the apex approaches.

      Do you have more money than taste? Is there no limits to how tacky and tasteless you can be? Ferrari's just aren't attention whore enough for you? Want the absolute worst looking wheels money can buy just for the sake of looking different? Look no further.

      despite all my insticts to say that those wheels are awful, i kinda like it.

      I'm not sure what adjective to use, but hilarious and pathetic come to mind. Poor Enzo! What must he think? It just goes to show that some folks who have come to great wealth seem to find the need to scream it out at the public. Who's going to buy this? Some bored oil baron, rock star or anyone else who has no taste, but an unlimited discretionary income. In any event it will almost surely be the least qualified talent-wise person to take command of such an insanely powered projectile. What's more, I predict that like so many supercars it will rarely ever be driven. They're all too fast for the street and too luxurious and fat for the track.

      It's not quite Mansory-grade tacky, but it's scrilage nonetheless. Maybe I'm too much of a peasant to understand, but I don't think the impact of possessing a quarter-million dollar Ferrari is enhanced by those ridiculous wheels.

      Again proves how some people have more money than taste...

      I know from reading the other comments that I'm alone in this, but... I REALLY dig those wheels!

      Those rims are going to be a nightmare to clean.
        • 4 Years Ago
        thats cause they come from the factory covered in feces
        • 4 Years Ago
        those rims are the nightmare

      Huh! It's terrible! Maybe they were made to match with the gril gate's palace of the owners...
