Ferrari 599 GTB Fiorano

The 599 GTB Fiorano is a new all-aluminium two-seater, named after the circuit Ferrari uses to hone the performance of its track and road cars, while GTB stands for Gran Turismo Berlinetta, after classic Ferrari berlinettas, and 599 reflects the displacement of its V12 engine divided by 10. Talk about overdoing it. The passenger areas of the Ferrari 599 GTB Fiorano are trimmed in leather while the driver area and controls boast more high-tech detailing in carbon-fibre and aluminium. Other standard accessories include front bi-xenon headlamps and rear LED lights, dusk and rain sensors, dual-zone climate control, electrically adjustable steering-wheel column, hideaway radio/CD player and key with integrated volumetric anti-theft device with motion sensors. Accessories include front and rear parking sensors, iPod-friendly set-up, satellite anti-theft system and a luggage set specially tailored to fit this model. Development work for the Ferrari 599 GTB Fiorano focused specifically on the distinctive sound the 6.0-litre V12 makes, to pretty much make it sound like a Ferrari.

Ferrari 612 Scaglietti

Named after Ferrari coachbuilder Sergio Scaglietti, the all-aluminum 612 Scaglietti attempts to blend performance and comfort in the tradition of a true Ferrari berlinetta designed to accommodate four people. This Ferrari is a 12-cylinder model with both the space-frame chassis and body panels in aluminium. The overall layout, with the 5.7-litre engine mounted behind the front axle and the gearbox in line with the differential at the rear, ensures an ideally balanced weight distribution, as well as permitting a lower centre of gravity. The performance-orientated handling is enhanced by active damping and a new stability and traction control system, with components from General Motors subsidiaries no less. The 612 runs with a six-speed mechanical gearbox, in a choice of manual or F1-style paddle shifts. With a relatively long wheelbase, the 612 has been designed to offer ease of entry for rear-seat passengers to a luxurious cabin which will accommodate four adults in comfort, while the luggage trunk hold a five-piece Ferrari luggage set or two full sets of golf clubs. Features include a new radio-CD system, voice recognition system, MP3 player, Bluetooth and more.

Ferrari F430

The F430 is heavily influenced by F1 Racing technology, and makes it known to everyone openly. The F430ís compact 4.3-litre V8 engine offers blistering high-revving performance, and the experience is enhanced by an optional F1-style paddle-shifting gearbox which has made its way to every other Ferrari model too. The F430ís aerodynamics are honed to generate special flows to increase downforce and improve cooling. One technical feature is the electronic differential, transferring massive torque levels to the track under high cornering g-forces, and guarantees maximum grip out of bends, eliminating wheel spin. The larger interior can be personalized with carbon-fibre or aluminium inserts, with space behind the seats accessed using an electrically operated compartment. The standard electric seats can be substituted by more sporting items with four-point harnesses to order. Even with all this the interior is noticeably barebones in keeping with its sporting nature. An F430 Spider convertible is also available. For 2008, a more powerful, lighter and track-focussed F430 Scuderia was introduced, with a faster clutchless-manual gearbox and other chassis enhancements.
