Ahead of Ferrari’s first official Formula 1 test session this season scheduled for tomorrow, Felipe Massa took out the Ferrari 599XX on the track for the first time at Valencia’s Ricardo Tormo circuit. Massa met with clients who purchased the 599XX and led them around track before their participation in the exclusive racing program.
“I really enjoyed testing this car, I think it’s extremely powerful and has an exceptional stability,” Massa said. “Considering that it has been planned for the track it’s really easy to drive.”
The seven clients will now participate in a series that Ferrari will organize on race tracks in America, Europe and Asia, including the Finali Mondiali. The cars will be taken care of by the team of official technicians, able to guarantee the necessary support and assistance.
Refresher: Power for the Ferrari 599XX comes from a 6.0L V12 engine making 700-hp with a maximum torque of 479 lb-ft. Ferrari also added a new F1 inspired gearbox that transfers power to the wheels with gear change time cut down to 60 ms.
