The 2012 Ferrari 599 GTB Fiorano Coupe boasts 612 horsepower and 448 pound-feet of torque, thanks to its 6.0-liter V-12 engine matched with a traditional three-pedal six-speed manual transmission with overdrive, or a six-speed single-clutch automatic transmission. Most buyers are choosing the automated manual, as the remarkably fast technology surpasses anything an average driver is capable of achieving. You can count on dramatic speed in changing gears, with column-mounted shift paddles. The rear-wheel drivetrain gets mediocre mileage, with approximately 11 miles per gallon in the city and 15 miles per gallon highway. As a result, it burns through the 27.7 gallon tank in approximately 305 miles (city) or 416 miles (highway). Of course, if you are paying an MSRP of $320,580, you probably are not too concerned with fuel economy. This is especially true when you can accelerate zero to 62 miles per hour in a lightning fast 3.7 seconds flat.
Handling is easy and responsive, making the Ferrari 599 GTB Fiorano Coupe a joy to drive. Rely on greater control at high speeds, and dependable deceleration, as the fade-free carbon-ceramic brakes reliably reduce speed with notable ease. Magnetic fluid filled shock absorbers offer instant reaction to both the road and the driver, making for a smooth ride. Independent four wheel suspension is double wishbone in both the front and the back. This provides you with a ride that is smooth as silk. The steering wheel gives complete control of all systems with a manettino switch. Drivers can adapt the traction control, suspension, shifter, and stability control based on the road and weather conditions.
Standard safety and security features include front and side airbags, four-wheel anti-lock brakes, dusk sensing headlamps, stability and traction control, tire pressure monitoring, and electronic brakeforce distribution. In addition the vehicle includes a remote anti-theft alarm system, an engine immobilizer and an emergency interior trunk release. Optional safety features such as a heat insulating windshield, a fire extinguisher, and front and rear parking sensors can be added at extra cost. The 2012 Ferrari 599 GTB Fiorano Coupe has not been rated by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.
With blazing fast acceleration, a distinct and unforgettable styling that demands attention and unparalleled performance, the 599 GTB Fiorano Coupe can be called the ultimate vehicle. When you arrive in the ride, people know you must be someone important. How many other cars can tell this information about you?
