Ferrari 599XX makes track debut (+video)

It’s been almost a year since the Ferrari 599XX made its debut at the Geneva Motor Show, and the hi-tech racer has been shown off since. But each of those times it has been on a show floor, with the 599XX never seen lashing around a track. Till now.

Just before Ferrari begins testing its new Formula 1 car at the Ricardo Tormo circuit outside of Valencia, the 599XX turned its first wheel on-track with none other than Felipe Massa behind the wheel. Massa led a group of seven cars around the circuit, the other vehicles driven by lucky members of Ferrari’s Corse Clienti program.

Various events have been planned for Ferrari customers in America, Europe and Asia, but it seems unlikely we’ll see a 599XX down here in NZ. So check out the video below and images of the track day in the gallery below.
