Noise Pollution At Its Best: Ferrari 599XX In Action Video 20
Posted by Malcolm Hogan in Automotive, Ferrari, Ferrari 599XX, video on 09 20th, 2011

When I was a kid, I honestly believed that the sound from an exhaust of a Ferrari was nothing special until I heard one with my own ears. I will never forget it. It was a sunny afternoon in downtown Chicago right after a few of the Chicago Bears left the practice field. One of the players was so kind to fly past us in his red Ferrari Testarossa. It was all over, I was in love, not with what seemed to be a NFL football player but the car he was driving.

Today that passion gets stirred up in me every time I am in the presence of a Ferrari no matter the model as long as it is real. The Ferrari 599XX, a 720 horsepower hard-core re-worked track version of the 599GTB, is a prime example of a machine that is able to produce the branded Ferrari sound that so many car enthusiasts crave. To help you understand my heart-felt love, we are sharing an exclusive video of several Ferrari 599XX’s making their way around the Spa Francorchamps circuit during a recent Ferrari event. The sound is just intoxicating. Be sure to turn up your speakers and enjoy the video below!

Posted by Larry in Automotive, featured, Ferrari, Ferrari 599XX, News, Nurburgring, Pagani, Pagani Zonda R on 06 30th, 2010

If there was ever a fine line between a street car and a full-on race car then now is the time to question it. In the latest battle to get the best Nurburgring lap time, the Pagani Zonda R beats the Ferrari 599XX’s record lap time of 6:58 and posts a time of 6:47. Both the Ferrari 599XX and Pagani Zonda R are dedicated track vehicles but still classified as production cars. With that said, the Zonda R is now king of being the fastest production-based vehicle around the infamous Nurburgring.
