After unveiling the new Ferrari 599 GTO last week, the Italian automaker released an online configurator where interested buyers (dreamers) can go and customize their very own 599 GTO. Well, it seems like we won’t be needing the configurator anymore because Ferrari announced at the unveiling of the 599 GTO at a special press event in Beijing that all units have already been sold.
The expectations for this car with such an important name are extremely high, as Ferrari Chairman Luca di Montezemolo explained: “We’ve created a wonderful car, the most powerful in our history, an exclusive car I wanted to give a historical name like GTO, because it deserves it”.
Ferrari will only make 599 units of the new 599 GTO.
Refresher: Power for the Ferrari 599 GTO comes from a 6.0L V12 engine making 661-hp with a maximum torque of 457 lb-ft. Mated to a F1 6″“speed gearbox, the Ferrari 599 GTO goes from 0-62 mph in 3.5 seconds with a top speed of more than 208 mph. Ferrari says that the 599 GTO set a record lap at Fiorano in 1 minute and 24 seconds.
