The aluminum chassis is a new development, and the engine is based on the twelve-cylinder from the Ferrari Enzo Ferrari. The 599 GTB continues the tradition of Ferrari`s front-engine V12 sports cars with transaxle construction with the transmission on the rear axle. The car’s new “F1 Trac” traction control system was developed in collaboration with Michael Schumacher. Ferrari’s “F1 SuperFast” gearshift makes gear changes possible in less than 0.1 seconds.
The HGTE package “Handling Gran Turismo Evoluzione ” from 2009 includes a sports suspension with larger-diameter stabilizers and sports tires and lowered bodywork, HGTE-specific forged 20-inch wheels and a sports exhaust system. The electronics were modified: with sporty driving settings on the steering wheel knob, the time for a gear change (under full load) was reduced to 85 ms, the throttle response was adjusted and the electronically controlled shock absorbers were set to a sportier setting. For the interior, the HGTE package includes sports seats with Alcantara with parts made of carbon fiber reinforced plastic (CFRP).
