Tuning concern Anderson Germany has given Ferrari's 599 GTB Fiorano an all-round upgrade with a reduced weight programme through use of new carbon-fibre components, engine software remapping and new cosmetic additions.

Although the stock six-litre Ferrari 599 is already equipped with 620 PS, Dusseldorf-based Anderson Germany company has boosted engine power to a claimed 674 hp (491 kW) through optimising its software and the installation of a new exhaust system (which can also be adjusted by remote control through two different sound stages).

The second thrust of this 599 GTB Fiorano project has been in the area of weight saving, specifically through the use of lightweight carbon-fibre. The door mirror covers, the new profiled front bumper lip spoiler and new multi-planed side skirts as well the rear bumper and diffuser are all formed out of carbon-fibre.

Together, the engine and bodywork changes combine to give the reworked 599 a claimed 0 to 100 km/h acceleration time of slightly over three seconds (the official production version is rated at 3.7 seconds) while top speed is claimed to be "in excess" of 300 km/h, although the production version is already detailed at 330 km/h by Ferrari.

Anderson Germany has also been to town on improving the cosmetic aspects of the car. The 599 project features complete varnishing in "Black Diamant Metallic" with glossy black full-length racing stripes with red trimmings. New wheels also feature with 9' x 21' multispoke polished black rims with an outer circular red trim that are shod with 245/30-21 tyres. Customers can also choose from larger sized 12' x 21' wheels fitted with 345/25-21 tyres. Complementing the exterior red detailing on the bodywork and the wheels are red-varnished brake calipers.

The interior of the car has also been modified with the use of black carbon leather for the seats, door panels, dashboard and centre trunking cover, which is combined with red perforated leather featuring a distinctive diamond-shaped stitching and red perimetre. Further to the project's stated purpose of overall weight saving, the gearshift, door handles, window switches, door sills and center console have been manufactured entirely from the carbon-fibre.
