The 79th Geneva International Motor Show provides the venue for Ferrari to announce two new pieces of good news: the arrival of the sporty, dynamic Handling GT Evoluzione (HGTE) Package for the Ferrari 599 GTB Fiorano and the world debut of the 599XX which is a technological laboratory aimed at a select group of clients. The latter new car incorporates the most advanced technologies resulting from Ferrari's road-going and F1 research. Many of the technological solutions it carries are being used for the first time and have been developed exclusively for this special car.

In addition to the Ferrari 599 GTB Fiorano HGTE and finished in a new three-layer metallic Rosso, and the Ferrari 599XX in a colour matching the F2008, Ferrari clients and enthusiasts will also be able to admire this single-seater that recently won the Prancing Horse its 16th Constructors' World title. On the stand there will also be the full range of Ferrari road cars: the Scuderia Spider 16M in a Grigio Titanio livery, the 430 Scuderia in Rosso Corsa and two Grand Tourer models, the Ferrari California in Nero Metallizzato with a Sabbia interior and the flagship 612 Scaglietti. The latter will be displayed in the Atelier, a dedicated area where owners can get a taste of the virtually endless personalisation options on offer to them.

i find this car extremely ugly in 99% of its pics. this news doesn't really impress me. i do however like the idea of the slopped pieces at the rear that allow for air to pass between and around. whether or not they serve any real function, i don't know but that's about it for things i like about this particular ferrari

Thanks to a lack of security at the Geneva PalExpo Centre these images of a Ferrari 599XX are out in the open for everyone's enjoyment less than 24 hours before Ferrari is supposed to officially uncover the car. As can be seen in the pics the F60 F1 challenger will be shown in the same event. Details are understandably quite scarce at the moment but the 599XX is set to be the most extreme 599 GTB Fiorano ever seen. We wouldn't be surprised if Michael Schumacher was extensively involved in its development.

It will apply Ferrari's F1 know-how as well as lightweight construction to enhance performance in every way. We see that massive rear diffuser, the small rear wing made of what looks like carbon fiber, and a dark roof. Side wings appear to stick out from the C pillar, the dark wheels sport big Ferrari brakes and the tyres are quite slick.

Ferrari is expected to produce the 599XX in very limited numbers, possibly for faithful Ferrari owners who will be hand-picked from an already small pool. By afternoon on the 3rd of March all details and pictures regarding the 599XX will be posted on WCF.
