    I cant imagine how much better the HGTE will handle compared to the regular 599. I 've thought the latter handled very well for a 3800lb GT.

    You would be surprised. There is always room for improvement.

    Not part of the HGTE pack but available as an option in One-to-One Atelier.

    Is the Atelier program available for cars that have already delivered?

    The idea of the Atelier is to do the final spec of the car about 3 months before the start of build. I'm sure that you can retrofit the grill on a delivered car but it may cost you a little more than ordering it during final spec. I suggest you check with your dealer.

    I've always thought it was soft and had way to much body roll.. I think this will be a nice add on for the car. The only other thing they should add is the same bose system they are using in the 612.. a proper sound system, nav, etc would do wonders for this car ;)

    I agree, I was shocked when I saw this photo of my car on track, it didn't feel as if it rolled that much from inside!!

    Strange stitching design on the two tone seats. The whole interior looks rather 'busy' with a variety of materials and colors. To quote Ferrari in the past 'the 599 doesn't need a handling package option and won't get one'. Wonder what else they have up their sleeve for the 599? What happened to the open version?
