2009 Geneva: Ferrari 599 GTB Fiorano HGTE gives you more performance

Ferrari’s Geneva presence was centered around the company’s 599 GTB Fiorano. As reported before, Ferrari showed off a new HGTE (Handling Gran Turismo Evoluzione) package for the 599 GTB Fiorano making it more sportier and improving its handling.

The HGTE package includes stiffer springs and rear anti-roll bar along with calibration settings for the magnetorheological shock absorbers when the manettino is at its sportier setting. The package also lowers the ride height offering a more road-hugging drive along with optimized tires that offer better grip.

Ferrari’s HGTE package for the 599 GTB Fiorano also modifies the car’s electronics making the F1 gearbox shifts even faster in high-performance settings. The package also improves acceleration along with a new exhaust silencer that gives out a more thrilling sound.

Appearance wise the HGTE package offers subtle exterior and interior modifications with the use of carbon fiber. 20-inch split wheels are also available with a new diamond-cut and matte-silver finish. The rear diffuser is finished in matte-black. Inside the seats are trimmed in a combination of leather and black Alcantara inserts. The headrests have a Prancing Horse and the words “Handling GTE” stitched in them.
