An open Ferrari is among the classic dream cars, especially when it’s powered by a high-revving V-12, and the iconic manufacturer is about to launch another one. Ferrari is expected to unveil the new model, based on the 599GTB Fiorano, at the Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance in mid-August.Our renderings show a classic, open roadster quite unlike its predecessor, the 575-based Superamerica, which sported an unusual, Fioravanti-designed glass top. That roof was hinged at the B-pillars and flipped 180 degrees to settle on top of the trunk. The 599-based roadster, by contrast, is expected to be equipped with a metal folding hardtop of a more conventional type, similar to that of the V-8–powered Ferrari California.
The Tipo F140 C 6.0 L (5999 cc) V12 engine produces a maximum 620 PS (456 kW; 612 hp), making it the most powerful series production Ferrari road car of the time. At the time of its introduction, this is one of the few engines whose output exceeds 100 hp per liter of displacement without any sort of forced-induction mechanism such as supercharging or turbocharging. Its 608 N·m (448 ft·lbf) of torque will also be a new record for Ferrari’s GT cars. Most of the modifications to the engine were done to allow it to fit in the Fiorano’s engine bay (the original Enzo version could be taller as it would not block forward vision due to its mid-mounted position).
A traditional 6-speed manual transmission as well as Ferrari’s 6-speed called “F1 Superfast” is offered. The Fiorano also sees the debut of Ferrari’s new traction control system, F1-Trac.Pictures of work in progress. Stay tuned for completion by July 2016. Ferrari 599 GTB Convertible will be exhibited on August 21, 2016.
