Today, Ferrari whisked the cover off two new 599 variants: the 599 GTB Fiorano HGTE and the 599XX. Designed exclusively for the track and thus legally prohibited from galloping the streets, the Ferrari 599XX didn’t pique our interest nearly as much as its brother. Already one of the fiercest rides on the market, the Ferrari decided to up the ante by introducing the Handling GT Evoluzione (HGTE) package for the 599 GTB Fiorano. True to its name, the primary benefits the HGTE brings to the table are found in the suspension and include a lower ride height, stiffer springs, and new calibration settings for the shocks.
While the primary focus of the HGTE package remains overall performance, it does come with few aesthetic perks. Liberally slathered with carbon-fiber interior accents and seat trim, the HGTE comes upholstered in custom black leather and Alcantra seat inserts, replete with the Ferrari prancing horse logo and “Handling GTE” emblazoned across the headrests. Outside, 20″ diamond cut wheels, a custom rear diffuser, and chromed tailpipes were added to complete the sporty new look. Neither a price range nor an availability date have been provided, but many expect the HGTE package to tack about $30k onto the 599 GTB Fiorano’s already hefty price tag.
