With its monstrous 6-litre V12 engine that produces 620 hp at 7,600 rpm and provides the all-aluminum and carbon-fiber supercar with power to weight ratio of less than 2.6 kg/hp, the new Ferrari 599 GTB Fiorano is claimed to be the most powerful 12-cylinder coupe ever developed by the Italian company.

Styled by the Italian coach-builder Carozzeria Pininfarina, the new car was officially unveiled at the Geneva Motor Show and is destined to replace another legendary red-hot gran turismo, the Ferrari 575M Maranello.

The 599 part in the car’s name stands for the total displacement of its Tipo F140C 6-liter naturally-aspirated engine, that being 5999 cubic centimeters.

The 599 Fiorano may be ordered with a 6-speed manual transmission that may be further supplemented with the F1 Superfast shift paddles for even quicker gear shifting without taking your hands off the steering wheel.

The company says that it takes Ferrari 599 GTB Fiorano only 3.7 seconds to accelerate from 0 to 100 km/h, and its top speed surpasses 330 km/h.

To help the car better stick to the road, its shock absorbers are filled with a magnetic fuel to instantly adapt the suspension to current road conditions.

All things considered, the car must feel itself quite comfortable competing with such supercars as the new Aston Martin DBS, Lamborghini Murcielago, and the Maserati GranTurismo.
