599XX #3 EVO Pictures

Hi

Just wondering, has anyone else seen these pics of XX #3? Looks like a new splitter with side flaps and rear wing have been added, along with somewhat new rims(?) Also if you look behind the front wheel vents theres a "new" silver coloured part. Does anyone know anything more about this, looks like its Amadeo Felisia whos introducing it. Pics where taken at the recent Finali Mondali at Mugello. Any info would be greatly appreciated as I'm a massive fan of the Corse Clienti!

(pictures may not be reproduced or reposted anywhere without permission)

That new silver colored part starts just behind the front wheels. It may be there to aid in brake dust dispersal, or Ferrari is testing a way of accelerating airflow to the rear wing to create more downforce.
...or there may be mini exhaust tips behind the front wheel, which would just be interesting to see.

Yes we're working on it now and will continue up to the next 24.

My guess would be since I can not see any exhaust out the back, the exhaust probably exhits by the silver, most likely stainless, plates.

XX Evo?......Most Def. Wicked! Any chance of getting Maranello to put that wing on the back of my GTO?

599 XX2

The silver plates behind the front wheels are the exhausts

Real aero evolution

Look at the front splitter too

Rear wing has some tricks!

Other changes you can't see!!

Hopefully they'll take it to the Ring for a go.

A rear WING in a 599XX is very unusual thing. But we are talking about the EVO version so... Ok. Like..!

Best

Thanks for posting. That new car looks crazy! I can't tell for sure but it looks like they've rerouted the exhaust as well.

Yes. IMO we'll see more and more active aero on road cars.

The 458 has it already.

Unlike in race cars where it's illegal there are a lot of advantages to active aero.

We're trying to develop DRS for P 4/5 CM that would be race legal. Not easy to do.

Im assuming you can't do a split element wing(so essentially a wing per side) that has a GPS module to control angle of each side according to each turn?

That Evo looks mean, such a giant looking wing but im assuming its purely function over form at this stage of the 599

Nothing can move. No movable aero devices. Includes flexing body parts. No driver controllable devices.
