Christmas arrived a bit early for Ferrari fans, as the guys over at FastLane Daily have scored what looks like the first picture of the upcoming 599 GTO performance model.
For those of you who don’t remember, the Italian carmaker aimed to commemorate the iconic 250 GTO, and combined the regular 599 GTB Fiorano with performance elements from the track-only 599XX concept, to result in a performance model worthy of the famous GTO badge.
The pic definitely looks like it was snapped from a brochure, and judging from the performance elements like hood and rear side vents, it might be the real deal. Current word on the rumor mill peg this model to sport a modified 6.0-liter V12, borrowed from the Enzo, capable of over 700 HP. It won’t come cheap though, as the exclusive nature of the GTO badge takes the tag well over $400,000.
Hit the jump to see the complete video report from FLD, including some rather interesting Photoshops of the new 599 GTO leaked photo.
