Known internally at Ferrari as the F139, the Ferrari 599 GTB Fiorano is the two seat Gran Turismo flagship model at Ferrari. It is meant as a replacement vehicle for the Ferrari 575M Maranello. It was first unveiled in the year 2006 at the Geneva Motor Show.
The design of the Ferrari 599 GTB was taken on by Pininfarina under the supervision of Frank Stephenson. The name of the Ferrari 599 GTB is taken from its Configuration displacement, 5999 cc. It is also borrowed from its similarities to the Gran Turismo Berlinetta.
In many ways, the styling of the Ferrari 599 GTB resembles that of the Ferrari 612 Scaglietti. At the same time, the Ferrari 599 GTB has been commended for boasting a sportier, more aggressive look. The main differences between the two vehicles rest in the squared off detailing of the body, as well as the lack of a scalloped side detail, as the Ferrari 612 Scaglietti boasts. The Ferrari 599 GTB also boasts flying buttress C pillars. These pillars provide the vehicle’s most distinctive feature. They are designed as a means of redirecting airflow over the vehicle’s small lip spoiler on to the rear deck lid.
