Ferrari Factory Tour And The Birth Of The 599

I came across this cool video from Motor Authority. At 611HP, the Ferrari 599 GTB Fiorano is the most powerful production car Ferrari has ever made (Ferrari has made a more powerful limited production car, the Enzo). This comprehensive documentary reveals the behind the scenes action at Ferrari’s factory in Maranello and gives you a look at how the new 599 is brought to life. As much as I like the new 599, I like the looks of the F430 way more.

    I will never own a car like this πŸ™‚

    1. Jeff Kee says:

      Not much of a car enthuisiast either, i just want to get a comfy, safe, and functional car. nothing more…

      But then who knows? When I makea lot of money I’ll be tempted.

      1. Ed Lau says:

        The Fiorano is probably quite comfy with all that Italian leather. It’s very functional as it goes to 205MPH…what’s more functional than that?

        Safe? Well…uh…did I mention how it sounds like a rusted chainsaw?

    2. Jonix says:

      why do you say that dave? Because of the price, or because you don’t like this type of car?

    3. I will. 😯 😈 πŸ‘Ώ 😯 πŸ˜†


  2. Brian Heys says:

    John, the big question is … are you evil enough to get one? 😈

  3. SEO Mash says:

    Saw 7 Ferrari FXX vehicles up close and personal this past at the Ferrari Challenge. Considering there are only 31 of the these super-Enzos in the world, seeing 7 in one spot was pretty amazing. Nice to see them being driven hard as well, although one was driven too hard and nearly ended up in a tire barrier.

  4. Shawn says:

    Pretty cool! I’m not much of a car guy either, but I’ve take a tour of the Corvette Plant here where I live and thats pretty amazing too. I wish I had robots like that to clean my house!

    1. UberDan says:

      I’ve got a tour of the Lotus factory booked for next week, i’m hoping for nice goody bag :mrgreen:

  5. Amanda says:

    I’m not a fan of the car but if it goes fast i love it.

    we just sold a ferrari at where I work. pretty cheap too only like 138K it wasn’t moving at the 198 we were asking for it.

  6. Court says:

    I would drive it. Maybe John will buy it for me if I link to his site enough.:)

  7. Derrich says:

    Great vid, John! Thanks for sharing.

  8. uncle sha says:

    John can i ask, what car do you drive anyway? I can’t recall you mentioning it over here

    I just love cars with such ‘powers’ … every boys dream. But only a few lucky ones, rich & evil 😈 ones I mean, will ever get behind of those


  9. Simonne says:

    :mrgreen: I live in a city with roads full of holes and bumps. I could not go too far with such a car πŸ™ … Not that I could not afford one at any time πŸ˜‰

  10. Alex says:

    Great video, but I saw only 5 minutes of it. I don’t have time for the whole 45.

  11. Xof says:

    Yeah, saw that reportage on TV the other day… Insane!!

    And I actually saw my first 599 on the street not too long ago – that’s San Francisco for ya πŸ˜‰

  12. πŸ™„ Has anyone here even been in a Ferrari?
    What’s it like?

    1. I have been in a Ferrari, but never drove one (it was during a show).

      What’s like? A dream…I have been tempted to turn it on and give it a try…

      Would be nice to rent one for marriage… They rent one for $11.019 (8.129 Euros) a weekend:

  13. Cognoscente says:

    I haven’t had the pleasure of seeing one in motion or listening to its melodious engine/exhaust note yet, but I’m sure the 599 is magnificent.

    My Ferrari model(current) preference: F430, 599 GTB, then the Enzo.

  14. I actually watched the entire video…pretty amazing stuff. I may never own or drive a Ferrari in my lifetime, but I sure as hell can dream, right?

  15. I ran across this car when looking at a car magazine before I got my teeth cleaned at the dentist. If I were to own a Ferrari it would be this or a 430..But I have to go with the Lamborghini Gallardo Superleggera, or the Maserati GranTurismo.

    1. The 430 is pretty sweet, isn’t it — if I had to drive a yellow car, this would have to be it.

  16. Thanks for sharing this, dude!
    Not everyday we got a grande tour of Ferrari factory. :mrgreen:

  17. Cash-Boy says:

    Sorry to upset Ferrari fans but there’s something about Ferrari I don’t like. Can’t quite put my finger on it… maybe cause it’s Italian (Just Kidding)

    I love Porsche especially the Carrera GT, if the Carrera GT was a girl… I’d be on my knees(proposing) πŸ˜› lol

    Last weekend when I was gasing up my car, a brand new ferrari F430 stand by my side.
    The old guy, from Liechtenstein, just told me one thing: “When I was young, I dreamed of such a car. I got 120’000€ saved and bought this. Now I can die happy πŸ™‚ ”

    Damn, I agree with him.

    1. That’s a nice story, Ricardo; I wonder if John’s dream car story involves a Ferrari, too… 😈

  19. yeah, what car do you drive currently john?

  20. πŸ˜† If it’s speed that you like, check out the Ultima GTR, the fastest car in the world. The 720 GTR goes from 0 to 60 mph in 2.6 seconds. They call it the “multiple world record holding 200mph Ultima GTR supercar.” If I had to choose from the ten fastest cars in the world though,I’d pick the Bugatti Veyron. It’s a heavy one though, weighing about as much as a Female Blue Whale.


  21. I would love to tour the factory.

  22. Wow, what a coincidence! I saw last night this documentary on National Geographic Channel!

  23. so when are you going to buy your ferrari, john?

  24. Paul. says:

    Long video but worth a watch.

  25. jason says:


  26. John do you own any ferraris?? I like the F430 myself!
