Modern-day Ferraris don’t come much more desirable and exclusive than the 599 GTZ Nibbio Zagato unveiled back in 2007.
Based around the Ferrari 599 GTB, the Nibbio Zagato was limited to just nine units worldwide, eight of which used the Italian company’s semi-automatic paddle shift transmission. However, one of those nine has a six-speed gated manual gearbox and that exact unit is now up for sale from Tomini Classics in Dubai.
The design of the 599 GTZ Nibbio Zagato is not only a significant departure from the standard 599 GTB but it is also unlike any other Ferrari ever made. For example, the front includes an overhauled grille, new air intakes, and remoddled headlights. However, it is the rear where the Nibbio Zagato really stands out.
Zagato altered the shape of the supercar’s roof and paired it with a customized rear window that seamlessly stretches back along the rear decklid. The new roof and rear window frame also stand out as they are painted white while the rest of the supercar is finished in dark blue. The finished look wouldn’t be to everyone’s taste but it’s certainly unique.
As the 599 GTZ Nibbio Edition is based on the 599 GTB, it is powered by the same naturally-aspirated 6.0-liter V12 engine, pumping out a cool 612 hp and 448 lb-ft (608 Nm) of torque.
Unsurprisingly, buying a car as unique as this with both Ferrari and Zagato badges doesn’t come cheap. In fact, the car has an asking price of $1.495 million, despite having 26,772 km under its belt.
Is it worth it? We’ll leave that question to the millionaires out there that can actually afford it.
