Ferrari 599 GTO
It looks fast because it is fast. In fact, the Ferrari 599 GTO (~$480,000) is the company's fastest road car ever. Powered by a 6.0-liter V12, this sexy beast gives you 670 hp, a top speed over 208 mph, and a 0-60 time of 3.35 seconds. The 599 GTO shed every ounce of weight it could, coming in at only 3,295 lbs, making handling and acceleration crazier than a video game. It rolls on 20-inch rims and comes equipped with carbon-ceramic brakes and Formula 1-derived wheel doughnuts for braking efficiency and optimized brake cooling. It's also got a rather futuristic driver-car interface with Virtual Race Engineer (VRE), which sends the driver "instantaneous information" on performance. Only 599 will be available.
