Ferrari has released a very cool video of the Ferrari 599 GTB Fiorano outfitted with the new Handling GTE package.
The sound is unmistakable. Once you hear someone step on the gas in a Ferrari, you know exactly what kind of engine roar to expect.
That is the beauty of this 3-minute long video of the Ferrari 599 GTB Fiorano. But watching how the driver pushes the car in the turns while maintaining a perfect line is really fascinating. The car in the video has been outfitted with the Handling GTE package, and the car moves brilliantly because of it.
For cars built before the 2008 model year, Ferrari offers aesthetics, exhaust, and handling kits for a combined total of £17,213 (excl. VAT). Add £2,700 to the pricetag for post-2009 model year vehicles. The more expensive package also includes a performance kit.
Some of the improvements include a suspension lowered by 10mm, stiff springs and anti-roll bars, stickier tires wrapped around lighter rims, and a chromed grille. You will also get two-tone tailpipes with exhaust silencers, and modified Prancing Horse badges. Those receiving the performance kit will also get to take advantage of a faster F1-style gearshift, and improved accelration.
Keep in mind, the grille shown in the photos is only for new customers ordering the HGTE package with their new car. That specific grille is not available as a retrofit option.
The Ferrari 599 GTB Fiorano and the corresponding HGTE package are currently available for purchase.
