Ferrari 599 GTO sold out before official reveal

The new Ferrari 599 GTO is the prancing horse’s fastest ever road car, which was the reason for Ferrari reviving its most revered badge GTO. It’s the first time the GTO badge has been used since the 288 GTO almost a quarter century ago. The 599 has just been given its official unveil at a ceremony in Modena, Italy.

The V-12 sports car is to be produced in a limited edition of 599 units, and was unveiled at a symbolic place in the city of Modena – the Military Academy’s Ducal Palace. The grand gala, also involved the participation of Ferrari factory test drivers and military cadets in front of a crowd of 500 wealthy clients. You’d think that the fastest road car ever built by Ferrari could speak for itself.

The 599 GTO’s next official appearance will be at the 2010 Beijing Auto Show, which kicks off in China next week. If you were thinking of picking up a new 599 GTO, you’re sadly out of luck as all 599 examples have already been accounted for.
