So mayby it wasnt the best idea to name that car "GTO" but i think that 599 GTO's owners are content with theirs GTOs :).

somehow you still haven't given a straight answer on what you think of the naming of it

the 250 GTO was made for road racing, the 288 GTO was made for group B, but the 599 GTO was never made for a racing series, meaning it isn't a GTO

i agree with clarkson here: "they could call it anything they'd want except GTO" "all you're really buying is a poshed up version of what gordon ramsey drives"

...Im curious how fast isnt THAT fast, Or how fast is THAT fast?... -_-


User avatar

This is not very good thing in my opinion...But anyway i have read (obviously havent driven that car) that 599 GTO is way more exciting to drive than regular 599. It is for sure a great sport car.

And what about it not being a real GTO?


User avatar

dddd  7y ago

No it is not a slow car. It is a very fast car but not THAT fast. I would like to see 599 GTO doing 0-200 km/h in high 9s. Dont know if it is possible.

...Ill answer for him....

.ITS TOO SLOW MAAAAN, ITS TOO BLOODY SLOW!!!!

@dddd

answer the below question since you're probably on now


User avatar

lafars  7y ago

hey dddd, what's your opinion as a ferrarifan on the GTO being a faux GTO?


User avatar

BR2+  7y ago

Yeah, That GTO meaning was actually my Only problem with the 599, Everything else was fantastic in my book, One of the best looking and sounding Feraris in the past 20 years. But they should not have called it GTO, Maybe something like a Scuderia version of the same surname. Like Stradale, or Bellissima or Bologna. Ohh, 599 GTB Incognito!

"So in terms of pure performance (straight line acceleration and track performance) GTO is nothing special."

i will have to partially disagree, it's by no means bad, but GTO good? maybe

i thought you would react on the fact that this car is a faux GTO as it is not homologated from any racing series (O=homologated)

I wrote that in my opinion 599 GTO is too slow for such car (relatively).I did not write that it is "slow" car in general...I meant that it is too slow car for the most powerfull Ferrari in 2010.

But the fact is that GTO was not tested many times. And we have the same situation with F12.

I think not many journalists got their hands on this car for proper instrumented testing and lapping. And I think most can't even drive it to 8/10ths of its capability(clarkson). If many 599 gtos were tested extensively like a zr1 was for example, we'd have much better results. But then again this is not a common car by any means. Also I thinks its tires never did it any justice. Its got the same tires that are now used on the base corvette stingray.

I Still believe it was the fastest at the time, But i dont think thi has one Serious acceleration or track time attempt, Which is rather strange. And i also believe this will do the same time as a Turbo S in the 1/4 Mile, While trapping around 4-5Mph higher, Slower 0-60Mph though, But a base 599 does 60mph in 3.2s, Dont see why this wont get 2.9s to 60mph and a 1/2s of its 0-100mph time. And a 599 GTB does the 1/4 in 11.2@131.4mph, SO i dont know whats up with this cars press image, You would think people would be lining up to kill to test this thing. OR it could be Ferrari marketing bullshite to sell cars, EVen though just the name itself is good enuff to do that.

But really, ddd calling this too slow? Yeah man, I remember calling a 10,000Bhp dragster slow too...till since i got a rocketship now...

The GTO is not slow are you kidding me? It loses to turbo s because that car has amazing traction off the line. But the GTO beats a Murci SV in a rolling start and it matched the f12 in a rolling start drag race done by m5board. Not slow by any means. Very fast if you ask me.

Ferrari 599 is a fantastic and very fast GT car.

599 GTO is also a great car in practically every aspect but there is a one problem...599 GTO was said to be the most powerfull and the fastest Ferrari road car in its time but it is slower even than 997 Turbo S in straight line. Im pretty sure that 599 GTO will have problem even in roll drag race with 997 Turbo S.

So in terms of pure performance (straight line acceleration and track performance) GTO is nothing special.

I understand that N/A cars dont have easy life competing with turbo cars in terms of acceleration but anyway 599 GTO is too slow for me for such a car.

Man, so the gto was slower than a track car in a straight line, And slower around corners. Not really sure what it's for then

There are some intense battles in the comments. More so than the comparison itself lol
