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
