Ferrari 599 GTO Aerodynamics, Styling, Interior and Personalization
The 599 GTO significantly benefited from Ferrari engineers’ experience in Formula One as well as from 599XX in order to optimize down force without impacting on drag. The Ferrari 599 GTO generates down force of 144 kg at 200 km/h thanks mainly to solutions transferred from the track version to the road exemplar.
In developing the 599 GTO the focus was on all the areas that have the best direct impact on aerodynamic and performance: the front, sides, rear, underbody and cooling flows. In the specific, the cooling ducts for the discs and pads have been optimized whether the wheel doughnuts reduce the energy loss caused by the rims turbulence. The front bumper has been widened to improve the fairing-in of the wheels and it is now equipped with a new wider sill design to improve the rear wheels fairing. The sill also features a more pronounced leading edge that improves the efficiency of the underbody central section.
Enhancements on the car nose are aimed to reduce drag and narrow the width of the wake generated by the front. The Ferrari 599 GTO is also equipped with a splitter, an aerodynamic surface …
