This is a bit of a rarity and one that I don’t think is entirely relevant to the extent that it is cool. I don’t know for sure if and when Ferrari have ever shouted about the speed of their product around what has become universally accepted within the Auto Industry as the speed testing stomping ground. Then they rock up with a 599XX; a car that is accepted as one that is so faintly connected to its road car sibling that sharing its name is tenuous.

Either way Ferrari wheel man Raffaele De Simone didn’t hesitate once and banged in an epic lap of 6:58.16 to set the production based record. Monumental I think you will agree and a time that is getting ridiculously close to a certain Mr Bellofs time in a ground effect Porsche 962.
