2007 Ferrari 599 GTB Fiorano Review

In short: The stunning, screamingly fast flagship Ferrari.

Amazing doesn't begin to describe how Ferrari's latest take on its flagship 599 coupe looks and drives. From its monstrous 6.0-liter, 611-horsepower V12 engine to its sexy flying buttress C pillars, the Fiorano is a classic in the making. A word of caution: although the 599 GTB Fiorano that we got a chance to check out came in bright stop light red, all you'll want to do is go-go-go in this super-fast supercar, which is capable of reaching top speeds over 200 mph!
