…It’s Tuner Tuesday: Ferrari 599XX?

Ferrari 599XX

Ferrari’s 599 GTB Fiorano is already a potent pony, so when the Italians decided to put their stallion through the XX program (which was responsible for cars like the Enzo FXX and the FXX Evoluzione) the ears of millionaires around the world definitely perked up.

The end result of Ferrari’s poking, prodding, tuning and trimming is called the 599XX, and it’s the fastest road car they’ve ever produced. (Though calling this a road car is a bit of a stretch.)

Ferrari 599XX Detail

The ‘extreme track car’ bumps power to 700 hp at 9,000 rpm, and uses carbon fiber wherever possible to bring the weight down while increasing aerodynamic downforce. Other neat goodies include F1 style ‘doughnuts’ over the brake discs that improve aerodynamics and brake cooling, carbon fiber brake pads, and a whole host of active aerodynamic components they call the ‘ActiflowT’ system.

Like previous XX cars, the 599XX will be invitation only, so if you don’t already have a few Ferraris parked outside, this won’t be the next addition, but for the select few, Ferrari has created a car that will more than likely defy belief.

…You can look inside the Ferrari Scuderia Spider 16M?

Ferrari Scuderia Spider 16M

Want to take a peak inside the new Ferrari Scuderia Spider 16M; the race ready version of its F430 drop-top?

Then check out FerrariWorld.com, where they’ve created a fantastic in-car experience where you can pan around the inside of the car and examine all the little details, including the carbon fiber everything, the iPod Touch in the center console, the yellow accents that highlight all the important bits and pieces, and even the Racing Magnettino that tunes the magnetic suspension for optimum performance on the track and the street.

It just doesn’t get much better than that.

…The Zenvo ST1 is one fast ride?

Zenvo ST1

It may look like the combination of a VW GTI grill, Maserati Corse hood, Lamborghini Murcielago side scoops, Lexus IS-F gill slits, Ferrari F599 quarter windows and F430 side mirrors, Nissan 370Z roof and GT-R taillights, but when you’ve got 1,104 horses of turbocharged AND supercharged power under the hood, no one’s really going to see anything but a blurry view of the rear bumper.

Called The Zenvo ST1, this Danish supercar has been in the works since 2004, but is just now going through its final stages of testing and is expected to see the light of day (all 15 of them) some time in early 2009.

Zenvo ST1 Detail

Specs include the twin-charged 7.0-liter V8, six-speed manual gearbox, rear-wheel-drive, and plenty of carbon fiber to keep the weight down, and stats come in at 3.2 to 62 mph, 120 mph in under nine seconds, and a top speed of 233 mph.

No pricing information is currently available, but if you have to ask…

…Novitec Rosso makes a mean Ferrari 599?

Novitec Rosso Ferrari 599

Novitec Rosso kept the body modifications to a minimum, but when your bi-kompressor (twin supercharged) Ferrari 599 GTB Fiorano makes 808 horsepower and gets to 60 in just 3.5 seconds, you don’t need flashy wings and carbon fiber, because your brake lights will gladly do all the necessary talking.

The exterior of the Ferrari didn’t exactly remain stock however, as an aerodynamic-enhancement kit developed in the wind tunnel keeps the car planted while three-piece, 21-inch wheels, a correspondingly calibrated sports suspension and high-performance brake system do their part to keep the rubber on the road.

Exclusive interior options round out the package, and at just $60,500, it’s practically a steal once you factor in the cost of the car and the price to performance ratio of the upgrade.

…Bullit should have been Italian?

Bullit

It’s supposed to be a Bullit remake (the site’s in French) but regardless of what it’s supposed to be, a black Ferrari F430 chasing an orange Lamborghini Gallardo Superleggera through the streets of Paris is definitely something to be seen and heard:
