    At the 2004 Geneva Motor Show you can see the world previews of the new GTC Handling pack for the 575M Maranello.

    Ferrari media :

    The GTC Handling pack for the 575M is also the first to offer carbon-ceramic brake discs, already adopted on the Enzo and the Challenge Stradale, for a front-engined Ferrari, and represents a further evolution in the strong personality of the Maranello. As is clear from its name, which refers to the transfer of the handling characteristics of the version used in the FIA-GT Championship to the road-going model, the GTC Handling option offers an even more thrilling driving experience, thanks to its new track-derived components. Apart from the effectiveness of the new brakes developed in collaboration with Brembo, this is a further development of the Fiorano handling package (special springs and anti-roll bars, lowered ride height, upgraded power steering), with additional advances in electronic suspension control. The new personalisation option also includes an exhaust system with an even deeper, characteristic rumble, newly designed exhausts, coloured brake callipers featuring the 'Brembo Carbon Ceramic' logo, and modular 19" wheels fitted with special Pirelli P Zero Corsa tyres (255/35 ZR19 front and 305/30 ZR 19 rear). This combination of advanced new components offers drivers even headier performance from an already firm favourite with devotees of the Maranello 12-cylinders.

    I dont like that they are adding the model name to the rear of the car. I was hoping that the "Challenge Stradale" tag on the rear was a one off, but apparantly not. Yuck....

    Me too! Get those ugly emblems off! If you are an enthusiast you regonize it anyway. If you don't, than you don't even bother...

    The model name to the rear of the car is a new particularity of all the 2004 575MM.
