Leave it to the Germans to build one of the best-looking Ferraris at this year's Concorso Italiano. When we first walked past this 599 in the Meguiar's booth we initially mistook it for the race-only 599XX. And that's the point. Deutsch aftermarket company Vörsteiner felt the Ferrari 599 GTO didn't look aggressive enough and developed a body kit for the standard 599 GTB Fiorano to make the car look more like its track-going brother. The result is the Vörsteiner Ferrari 599-VX.

The makeover is achieved via an eight-piece body kit that includes a new front end, hood, side skirts, rear decklid, rear intake panel and rear bumper with integrated diffuser. All components are constructed in lightweight carbon fiber, and a closer look revealed that the fit and finish is top notch and worthy of the Italian marque. Everything is finished off with a beautiful matte white vinyl wrap from 3M.

You can take a closer look at the Vörsteiner Ferrari 599-VX in the high-res gallery above.

      When your V12 Ferrari simply isn't special enough, and it's too painful to take a 6 digit depreciation hit - throw some body kit on the Ferrari. Problem solved, right? :roll eyes:

      Looks surprisingly good, except maybe the front ducts. I wish that they did a little weight reduction and power bump to make it match its racy looks with 599GTO crushing performance.

        They did do weight reduction and a power bump. What this post doesn't mention is that the body kit pieces are 40% lighter than the stock pieces they replace. Also a special exhaust made by BBI Automotive is included with the package. Not sure how much power it adds but Im sure it adds some. Also the exhaust is "special" because BBI had to custom design it to fit with the car without interupting the rear diffuser. Hence the waist high exhaust tip exits.

      I'd typically pass on a 599, as I'm not a big fan of the body work. This one, I think I would make an exception for.

      Just don't take this car to the track when a GTO is there. I wonder how hard it is to hear the GTO owner's laughter as he's flying by your fast-looking GTB or HGTE.

      Looks great! (minus the numbers on doors & windshield.. & could also do without hood stripes) I wonder if it's actually functional (wind tunnel tested)?? Be a shame to (attempt to) improve looks but reduce performance.
