It is believed that only 30 such examples were built by Ferrari, 10 of which were European specification. It is unknown how many right-hand drive examples were built; however, we believe that it was 4. This has to make the manual 599 GTB the rarest series production Ferrari to have been manufactured in recent years.
Following its UK registration, it was fitted with the dealer specified HGTE Handling Package.
Presented in unmarked condition, this 599 is finished in Nero paintwork with Nero Hide.
In 2017, Ferrari Swindon undertook the cosmetic restoration of this important Ferrari, as it had been enjoyed by its previous owners and had road rash to the nose and rear three-quarter panels. The decision was taken to repaint the 599 in its factory specified colour Nero and whilst this work was completed, a genuine 599 GTO bonnet was ordered from Ferrari and painted alongside its original bonnet. The GTO specification bonnet was fitted and the original bonnet was kept and is available should the next keeper wish to return the car back to factory specification at some point in the future. The 599 is also fitted with genuine Ferrari Black Mesh Grilles to the front bumper and equipped with a new set of genuine GTO wheels. The fresh paintwork of the entire car was then protected by Topaz Detailing with their paint protection film.
