    Believe that one is based on the 550/Barchetta.

    Not a Zagato but something just as interesting: a 599 redesigned by the man who first designed it. The One-Off 2013 Castriota Design GT Speciale! It was Castriota's personal 2008 Ferrari 599 GTB Fiorano w/ Manual transmission before he sold it to a family friend and then said family friend commissioned a redesign. A couple years ago, this car was offered for sale at Classic Car Gallery in Connecticut, who knows where it is today.

    And if we're talking obscure 599-based rebodies, who could forget the wonderful Vandenbrink Design 630 GTO by Hietbrink Coachbuilding and Edo Competition? Unfortunately, it was never built and remains a concept to this day.

    So far: Dark Blue on Silver @Tomini Dubai (Sold), Red @Niki Hasler Switzerland, Black in Manchester/Abu Dhabi, and then this Silver example...location unknown but I suspect either Auto Salon Singen or Kroymans Netherlands have something to do with it. According to the source, this Silver car is for sale.

    Unsure: Apparently there is one in Japan, color unknown. Also another dark blue on silver (different shades to the Tomini car) example.

    The so-called black one in Manchester/Abu Dhabi is actually green.

    Wheels are terrible. Shape is interesting but looks more like an Aston than Ferrari.

    I think the wheels are from that 599 Alonso Edition cashgrab from a few years ago.

    It’s the blue colour that makes it even more Aston than Ferrari too! In any other colour and on the right wheels these are beautiful!

    I remind you it is not a Ferrari ! ( to put oil on fire, we say in French ) just a 599 gtz from Zagato, no Ferrari badge allowed.
