599-based GTO is go!
Dutch design house will build five 599 GTOs, each costing up to £1m
After almost universal approval for its artist’s impression of what a modern-day Ferrari 250 GTO might look like, Dutch design house Vandenbrink Design has decided to produce five examples of the Ferrari 599-based supercar for real.
Two versions will be offered: the 599 GTO, with the regular 6-litre, 611bhp Ferrari V12, and the 630 GTO, with an enlarged, 6.3-litre, 750bhp engine. Not only can the GTO be more powerful, it will also be considerably lighter, as Vandenbrink Design is aiming to reduce the kerb weight of the car to 1500kg – some 180kg lighter than a standard Ferrari 599.
The ultimate 630 GTO version will be priced at 993,000 euros, with full options fitted. However, this does not include the cost of the base car or taxes… For more details visit Vandenbrink’s website at www.vandenbrinkdesign.com
