Ferrari Challenge Pt. 2--599XX


As part of the Challenge events, Ferrari brings some of their new cars to the track to run some "demo" laps. These are supposedly production cars; however, I'm sure this is a rather loose definition, since these are all out racing vehicles. A manufacturer has to produce so many to qualify as "production" vs "prototype". The number is small, so there are enough deep pocketed buyers who are able to afford these vehicles (probably for racing purposes more than street driving). The 599XX is a front engined vehicle (actually mid-engined, rear wheel drive). Here are some shots from the garage area.




And a few shots from the track (entrance to pit road):



Finally, here's a brief video clip of a 599XX passing by me on the way to the pits.
