Essen 2007: Hamann Ferrari 599 GTB Fiorano

Hamann was the first tuning company that made a full bodykit for Ferrari's new powermachine, the 599 GTB Fiorano. The car hasn't changed that much under the hood except for the fact that Hamann managed to get another 53 bhp from the engine. The total amount of power went up to 673 bhp. Hamann used a different exhaust system as well. This car looks much cooler because of the big 21" black rims.

On the outside you will see tons of carbon. The front spoiler is made from carbon, the rear spoiler is made from carbon, the air vents on the side of the car are also made of carbon. The side skirts are made of 'normal' materials though. This Ferrari 599 looks different from last years 599 that Hamann brought to the Essen Motor Show because this version has a air intake installed on top of the car. Unfortunately this intake has absolutely no function, except for air being able to go thru it. It doesn't lead to the engine like the intake on a Lotus Exige.

Ah well, once again Hamann has shown their way of upgrading a car. We like it!
