The Hamann Ferrari 599 GTB

http://www.hamann-motorsport.de/index_start.php

Hamann, the tuner of all manner of exotica, has gotten their grubby little paws on Ferrari's finest grand tourer, the 599 GTB.

To begin with, the Hamann treatment does not augment the engine, exhaust or suspension in any way, instead leaving the 600+ HP, V12 to do its job as Ferrari's engineers saw fit.

Hamann opted to focus their attention on the 599's bodywork, adding a chin spoiler, extending the side skirts and tacking on a new rear diffuser. Although down force is rarely a problem with Marnello motorcars, Hamann added a duo of wings: one gracing the edge of the bumper, while another sits atop the rear window.

Naturally, wheel choice is where the tuner excels and in the case of the 599, 21-inch wheels are fitted at all four corners, with 245 tires up front and 345s in the rear.

If you've got the coin, you could certainly do worse, but we think the 599 GTB speaks for itself quite well, right from the factory.

If you take the little vent type things off of the rear window, I think it looks like a corvette.

looks like it shares fascia cues from a Aston Martin, body lines from a Viper, vents from a Corvette, massaged out Supra fender lines. I'd say it looks pretty unique to its own but it's still a ferrari in a tuxedo.

I love Supras. Stock ones, not the tricked out ones everyone has now.

Hamann has a problem with putting too much plastic on cars that don't need all the crap examples:

the m6 ok but the m5 looks like s**t i personally had a opportunity to ride in the m5 it just doesn't need the crappy spoilers, u buy the car to kick some Evo ass which has a big hanger in the back for wet clothes

That 599 is sex on wheels, but why wouldn't they tune the engine more?
