We’ve been hearing rumors about a hardcore version of the 599 GTB Fiorano for some time now. According to Autogespot, the rumors may in fact be true. The publication reports that the car, known as the 599 GTO, will pay homage to the legendary 250 GTO of the 1960s.
Power is said to come from a V12 making between 680-hp to 700-hp, while weight is reported to be reduced by 100 to 150 lbs. The overall look of the 599 GTO will be inspired by the 599XX Concept that made its debut at the 2009 Geneva Motor Show.
Sometime in the next two months, dealers and customers will head to Maranello for a personal introduction to the car. After that, the model should make its debut at the 2010 Geneva Motor Show.
Pricing is said to start around at least $380,000 with production limited to around 500 units.
