The above is a rendering of what will eventually be dubbed the Ferrari 600 GTO. There has never been a car for which the letters 'GTO' signified anything other than automotive happiness. When those letters follow anything with a Ferrari badge, they are all the sweeter. The 600 GTO will keep its mod-cons inside, but wear nothing other than carbon fiber outside. In addition to the 285 kg(627 lbs) in lost weight, it also gets a lowered suspension, aero modifications, and almost 25% more downforce front and rear at 200 kph.

Rumor has it that the person behind the commission wants to revive the Ferrari North American Race Team (NART). Founded by Ferrari dealer Luigi Chinetti in 1958, the team raced until 1982 with some of the finest Ferraris and drivers the world has known.

Three 600 GTO's were commissioned nine months ago. Its coming out party will be at the Frankfurt Auto Show on September 12. [Source: StreetFire]

More power and lighter than the 599GTB, which already does 0-60 in 3.2....oh my...

I know a lot of people will not agree with me, but it seems like Ferrari can do no wrong right now.

Wow is about all I can say. I can't put into words how cool this news is. It would definitely be nice to see the NART come back, it would really bring more attention to racing in the US (other than that shithole NASCAR).

Amen! It's incredibly annoying at how biased Speed is towards NASCAR. With the hopeful reintroduction of NART, maybe more light will be shed on real racing such as the ALMS, Formula 1, and Speed World Challenge.

Anywho, I'm very excited about this 600 GTO. I'm guessing as the 599 GTB is the new flagship model in place of the Enzo, this will be a similar replacement for the FXX.

They could replace their side badges with one of these signs, and I really don't feel like getting stuck in a 2-seater flammable automobile ;)

God I hope not - the 575 Superamerica is so horrible. I have no clue how it made it past the drawing board. The whole roof section behind the b pillars is chopped and the tray it lays when it is down looks just as bad.

Wob, I seriously thought it was just me. You're the first person I can remember other than myself who's vocalized disappointment in the SuperA. Like yourself, I think it looks like utter crap. Nothing flows and consequently it looks as though everything is an afterthought.
