2009 Ferrari 599 GTB Fiorano Overview

By Cars.com Editors
Vehicle Overview
The Ferrari 599 GTB Fiorano borrows its name from the test track where Ferrari tests both its road cars and Formula One racers, and it's designed to bring F1 to the streets.

New for 2009
There are no significant changes for 2009.

Exterior
The long hood and short rear deck call to mind the 1971 Ferrari 365 GTC4 — called the Daytona by many. With its sweeping curves, air ducts galore and round taillamps, it's likely one would identify the 599 GTB Fiorano as a Ferrari even without the chrome prancing horse on the hood. It is unfortunate, however, that the headlights bring to mind the narrow, long design that Infiniti has been using for some years.
  • 23 exterior colors
  • 19-inch front and 20-inch rear wheels
  • Dual chrome exhaust
  • Bi-xenon HID headlamps
  • Tinted windows


Interior
The two-seat 599 GTB Fiorano will let drivers believe they're F1 racers if they wish, but they won't feel as if they're strapped into a Spartan racetrack beast. The seats have huge bolsters and cutouts for a four-point racing harness.
  • 13 available interior colors
  • Leather-wrapped seats, dash and steering wheel
  • Alcantara simulated suede headliner
  • Aluminum trim and shifter knob
  • Power locks, windows and keyless entry
  • Optional navigation system
  • Optional carbon fiber trim
  • Optional 11-speaker Bose stereo


Under the Hood
Ferrari calls the 599 GTB Fiorano a front-mid-engine design, meaning the engine is mounted farther back in the chassis than it would be in a pure front-...

Under the Hood
Ferrari calls the 599 GTB Fiorano a front-mid-engine design, meaning the engine is mounted farther back in the chassis than it would be in a pure front-engine car. Still, the engine is accessed from a front hood. The 599 GTB Fiorano can accelerate from 0-62 mph in 3.7 seconds.

The vehicle dynamic control system lets drivers choose which setting they want for the suspension, traction control and gearbox.
  • 12-horsepower, 6.0-liter V-12 with 448 pounds-feet of torque
  • Six-speed manual transmission
  • Available six-speed automatic transmission with steering-wheel-mounted controls
  • Magnetic fluid-filled adaptive suspension
  • Height-adjustable shocks
  • Speed-sensitive hydraulic steering
  • Available run-flat performance tires


Safety
The F1-Trac system monitors the speed of the front and rear wheels, predicts the maximum amount of grip and reacts accordingly. Ferrari says the system increases acceleration by 20 percent over traditional traction and stability control systems, and the magnetic-fluid suspension is designed to reduce body roll and give the driver greater control.
  • Side-impact airbags
  • Antilock brakes
  • Electronic stability control
  • F1-trac traction control system
  • Available spare tire

Warranty FAQs

What is a Bumper-to-Bumper warranty?

Often called a basic warranty or new-vehicle warranty, a bumper-to-bumper policy covers components like air conditioning, audio systems, vehicle sensors, fuel systems and major electrical components. Most policies exclude regular maintenance like fluid top offs and oil changes, but a few brands have separate free-maintenance provisions, and those that do offer them is slowly rising. Bumper-to-bumper warranties typically expire faster than powertrain warranties.

What is a Powertrain warranty?

Don't be misled a 10-year or 100,000-mile powertrain warranty doesn't promise a decade of free repairs for your car. It typically covers just the engine and transmission, along with any other moving parts that lead to the wheels, like the driveshaft and constant velocity joints. Some automakers also bundle seat belts and airbags into their powertrain warranties. With a few exceptions, powertrain warranties don't cover regular maintenance like engine tuneups and tire rotations.

What is included in Roadside Assistance?

Some automakers include roadside assistance with their bumper-to-bumper or powertrain warranties, while others have separate policies. These programs cover anything from flat-tire changes and locksmith services to jump-starts and towing. Few reimburse incidental costs like motel rooms (if you have to wait for repairs).

What other services could be included in a warranty?

Some automakers include free scheduled maintenance for items such as oil changes, air filters and tire rotations. Some include consumables including brake pads and windshield wipers; others do not. They are typically for the first couple of years of ownership of a new car.

What does CPO mean?

A certified pre-owned or CPO car has been inspected to meet minimum quality standards and typically includes some type of warranty. While dealers and third parties certify cars, the gold standard is an automaker-certified vehicle that provides a factory-backed warranty, often extending the original coverage. Vehicles must be in excellent condition and have low miles and wear to be certified, which is why off-lease vehicles feed many CPO programs.
