I think this is what Rich was talking about. Sounds cool if it actually happens.

Sounds amazing. The 599 is my favorite Ferrari currently in production. The gto should only make things better!

You got to be kidding. A 599 GTO? That rocks my mind! The price will probably be staggering. Nice timing too. Now that the market has gone into the dumper I will probably going to end up as just another spectator. I've got a case of green envy for whoever gets to park one of those in his garage. I'm going to be talking to my dealer anyway. Hope springs eternal, right?

What I have heard is that it will be an out and out racing car and not road legal at all and as for pricing I am hearing 1mil Euros being bandied around...could all be wrong of course.

My info is that it is (alas...) only a track version, with the name possibly including part of the FXX moniker. IMO, the resurrection of the GTO badge would be incredible on a version combining everyday ability and improved dynamics.

Are you sure they arent making a 599 GTC package like they did before?...If it is infact, a GTO, then it better be awesome and have some classic Ferrari DNA in it!

That's a lot of dough. This 599 GTO sounds pretty interesting. Hopefully some pics of it surface soon.

Boost sales? They had something like a $42 million profit last year.
