APN, PR,
28 February 2007.

For Italian sports cars fans, Hamann, the vehicle tuning specialist from Laupheim, Germany, got his special new ideas, with some additional 53 bhp boost, for Maranello's Ferrari 599 GTB berlinetta.

Power is boosted by a Hamann high-performance sports header (export only), including racing catalytic converters, to generate an extra 39 kW/53 bhp, taking the peak power output of the 6-liter V12 engine, already familiar from the Ferrari Enzo, up to 673 bhp (+53 bhp), a power rarely encountered on the open road.

As a result, the power-to-weight ratio shrinks from 2.5 to 2.3 kg per bhp.

To announce the King of the Road arrival with due respect, Hamann fits a sports rear muffler (export only) with 90 mm tailpipes both right and left. The rear silencer is made from corrosion-resistant stainless steel and generates an even more awe-inspiring sound than its series production counterpart.

The twelve-cylinder Berlinetta already sports a captivating body, signed by star designer Pininfarina. However, Hamann adds a few new touches of its own. For instance, the German tuner styles the “face” of the front mid-engined sports car with a spoiler, which blends harmoniously into the vehicle styling while generating greater downforce on the front axle. To match it, Hamann also offers side sill panels, lending the 599 GTB a more muscular appearance.

The roof gets a further spoiler, which guides the air to an extravagantly designed rear wing. The latter generates downforce on the rear axle and stabilizes the Ferrari at high speeds.

Since the 599 GTB is conceptually a race car for the road, Hamann decided to equip the rear end of this Italian muscle car with a three-piece diffuser that matches the rest of the technology.

When it comes to aerodynamics, Hamann does nothing to disrupt the original design, but lends added impact to a number of details in striking style. Batman would certainly choose the Hamann Ferrari 599 GTB as the car he drives to work in. All aerodynamic components are available in fiber glass or Carbon-Kevlar.

For the footprint, Hamann opted for its own ultra-light, forged three-piece “Edition Race” rim in a cross-spoke design and a black spider, notable for its nine main branching spokes, each of which splits into two further spokes. In addition, the titanium wheel bolts add another eye-catching feature. The stylish appearance is topped off by the mirror-finished rim flange. Hamann also offers the wheels as complete sets.

Typical wheel-tire combination:
- Front wheels: 9.0 J x 21, tires: 245/30 ZR 21
- Rear wheels: 12.0 J x 21, tires: 345/25 ZR21

On the inside, an exclusive set of black floor mats lend the Ferrari cockpit a cozier touch, while any 599 GTB can be customised to suit a customer’s own individual needs / taste. Extravagant leather upholsteries in various colors are available, as are extensive multimedia conversions featuring a DVD player, TV reception and a PlayStation.

Market-specific prices, shipping costs and other information - or inquiries - about the Hamann tuning range can be obtained from the Hamann-motorsport website.
