Red And White Ferrari 599 GTO Could Be Yours…For $900k

In its 77 year history, Ferrari has only ever adorned three of its models with the fabled GTO badge; the 250 GTO, the Group B rally-spec 288 GTO and the 2011 599 GTO.

The first of those has gone onto become consistently the world’s most expensive car with examples selling for well over eight figures year in year out. The 288 GTO meanwhile is rarely mentioned in the same breath as its halo hypercar successors but sells for millions and the 599 GTO has nowadays been overshadowed by the F12tdf.

Barely used tdf’s are selling for upwards of $1 million but for quite a bit less, enthusiasts can actually purchase a more exclusive 599 GTO and add one of the Italian firm’s finest models to their stable.

Next month, a stunning GTO will be sold by Mecum Auctions and is expected to shift hands for between $750,000 and $900,000. It is one of just 599 examples produced and at the time of its launch, was the fastest car Ferrari actively produced.

The key highlight for the 599 GTO is its screaming 6.0-liter V12 engine which is almost mechanically identical to the powertrain of the track-only 599XX. That means it produces 661 hp at 8,250 rpm and can accelerate to 62 mph (100 km/h) in just 3.35 seconds and continue onto a 208 mph (334 km/h) top speed.

This car has only ever covered 1,965 miles and has an immaculate paint finish combining pearl white with red accents.

So what would you prefer, this 599 GTO or the F12tdf?
