Ferrari and HAMANN - a
combination to set the pulse racing of all fans of Italian sports
cars. The vehicle tuning specialist from Laupheim, Germany, has
various new details and a power boost up its sleeve for the latest
model from the Maranello stable.
The power is produced by fitting an HAMANN high-performance sports
header (export only), including racing catalytic converters, to
generate an extra 39 kW/53 bhp. This takes the peak power output of
this 6 l V12 engine, already familiar to us from the Ferrari Enzo,
up to a majestic 673 bhp. You will rarely encounter more power than
this on the open road. As a result, HAMANN has reduced the
power-to-weight ratio from 2.5 to 2.3 kg per bhp.
To ensure that everyone
knows that the King of the Road is about to arrive, HAMANN fits a
sports rear muffler (export only) with 90 mm tailpipes both right
and left. Needless to say, the rear silencer is made from
corrosion-resistant stainless steel and generates an even more
awe-inspiring sound than its series production counterpart.
In the series production version, the twelve-cylinder Berlinetta
already sports a captivatingly and delicately swung body. HAMANN
adds a few new touches of its own to this body designed by star
designer Pininfarina. For instance, HAMANN styles the "face" of this
front mid-engined sports car with a spoiler, which generates greater
downforce on the front axle. To match this perfectly fitting
component, which blends harmoniously into the vehicle styling,
HAMANN also offers side sill panels, lending the 599 GTB a
significantly more muscular appearance. The roof is adorned with a
further spoiler, which in turn guides the air to an extravagantly
designed rear wing. The latter generates downforce on the rear axle
and stabilizes the Ferrari at high speeds. Since the 599 GTB is
conceptually a race car for the road, HAMANN decided to equip the
rear end of this Italian muscle car with a three-piece diffuser that
matches the rest of the technology. In conjunction with the rear
wing, and true to the principle of "a beautiful rear can also
endear", the HAMANN aerodynamics tuning suite shows its best side.
In fact, the 599 GTB tuned and styled the HAMANN way is truly a
sight to behold from all sides.
HAMANN lands a perfect
hit with the aerodynamics, which do nothing to disrupt the original
design, but lend added impact to a number of details in striking
style. Batman would certainly choose the HAMANN Ferrari 599 GTB as
the car he drives to work in. All aerodynamic components are
available in fiber glass or Carbon-Kevlar.
HAMANN has opted for its
own creation for the rims, called "Edition Race". This three-piece,
ultra-light, forged rim in a cross-spoke design and a black spider
is notable for its nine main branching spokes each of which splits
into two further spokes. In addition to the exciting design, the
titanium wheel bolts are a particularly eye-catching feature. The
stylish appearance is topped off by the mirror-finished rim flange.
Needless to say, HAMANN also offers the wheels as complete sets.
Typical wheel/tire combination: front 9.0 J x 21 / rear 12.0 J
x 21 - 245/30 ZR 21 / 345/25 ZR21
On the inside, an exclusive set of floor mats in black lend the
cockpit of this Ferrari a cozier touch. And of course HAMANN will
gladly customize any 599 GTB to suit a customer's own individual
needs. Extravagant leather upholsteries in various colors are
available, as are extensive multimedia conversions featuring a DVD
player, TV reception and a PlayStation.
