Ferrari 599 GTO

Ladies and gentlemen, let me introduce you to the Ferrari 599 GTO. Another hot model in the 599 series. Weighing in at 3296lbs the folks at Maranello has packaged the performance of the 599XX into a street legal race car. Boasting 660 horsepower and about 457 lbs/ft of torque this road rocket propels to itself to 60 in only 3.35seconds. Make sure you're strapped in and firmly grip the carbon fiber, leather and alcantara covered steering wheel with everything you got! Top speed is somewhere around 217MPH, but who cares about driving fast when you're rolling in something like this, right?  Unless you're an oil magnate or CEO of a fortune 500 company, it's highly unlikely you'll even get to see one of these on the street much less drive one! Even if you have the starting price of 319,495 Euros (around $430,000) that Ferrari is asking for, you may consider buying another Ferrari altogether because every last one of the 500 GTOs are spoken for.
