Ferrari 599XX Evolution

With its 6.0 liter V12 engine making 700-hp, the Ferrari 599XX is already a very powerful supercar – in fact, it’s so powerful that it’s one of the fastest cars to ever go around the Nurburgring at a blistering 6:58.16. But now Ferrari has taken it another step forward with the new 599XX Evolution, which loses some weight and gains extra power.

The Ferrari 599XX Evolution Package gets an active rear wing, improved chassis dynamics, modified front splitter, a new rear diffuser featuring a larger surface area and redesigned fences and foot-plates. With all those changes downforce at 200 km/h (124 mph) is increased to 330 kg (727 lbs) when the flaps are open and 440 kg (971 lbs) when they are closed.

Output on the car has been increase to 740-hp and torque has been raised to 516 lb-ft. Overall, the Ferrari 599XX Evolution Package drops a total of 77 pounds.

The Ferrari 599XX Evo is only available to Ferrari Corse Clienti – their racing client – taking part in the track-based R&D program for the 2012-2013 seasons.
