    I have the same info, approx 60,000 over the standard car...I think it is a good bet, Ferrari would never use the GTO name for a tarted-up 599, so it has to be very special.
    The 288 didn't do that well price-wise for almost 15 years, but it has skyrocketed recently...I just missed a car that sold for 450,000 EUR in less than a week and it needed a bit of work...

    What a legendary feat to have all of the GTO's---ok, leave out the 250 and its a bit more realistic. :) No matter, if they make a 599 (or 600) GTO, I'm very interested--and like you, want to add a 288 to my garage, too.

    So for under $1.3 million USD (not much more than a standard ENZO), you too could be the first in your neighborhood to own three generations of among the best 12 cyl Ferrari's ever made:

    288 GTO
    365 GTB/4
    599 GTO

    (I'd probably throw in a 16M or soon-to-come 458 Italia Spider just for those warm Summer days.)

    It's not priceless--but IMO, close to Nirvana.

    Of course the point not being picked up on here is that the 599 GTO would be front engined - just like the original 250 GTO (288 was mid-engined of course)

    Actually, the most important thing not yet discussed is the name: The "O" in the first two GTO's referred to homologation for racing. Is this car going to be homologated for FIA GT series competition? Or is this simply a Stradale/Scuderia version for track use?

    Curious.

    If they make the 599 GTO or 600 GTO look anything like the 599XX, I think they will have a hit on their hands!! I just love the way the 599XX looks, all the lines of the original 599 has been given a more masculine touch.

    Didn't you know . . . that twin turbo adds 4 cylinders, and that 7 speed dual clutch makes the 0-60 times much quicker.

    I know its eight turbo charged, but was in a hurry and when "cutting/pasteing" wrote the punch line missing the "exception"...

    No matter, its still a perfect grouping for a nice, tight, small collection :)

    I'm trying to confirmation from my dealer now...say they haven't a clue (of course) but that it'll take $20k for a deposit. I've asked for confirmation position on the list--don't want to be 3 or 4th given how few would actually be deliverd...I'm a buyer if its available based on what I've seen/heard and the pricing thoughts/rumors so far.

    I agree with many--its seems a perfect car for me...always liked the classic Ferrari big 12s but they've been a little lacking in sportiness. This mix would be spot on.

    I think this is a rumor mill. Sorry, it's just my opinion that we will not be seeing a 599GTO.

    I think sales are going well and Ferrari doesn't need to use the revered name so shamelessly. There is the "O" there after all and I haven't heard of plans to take it racing.


    I'll bet anyone a beer.

    There will be another GTO some day. Just not now.

    probably the car will not named gto, but it's a "scuderia" version of standard 599.
    my dealer said me in italy they can have maximum 5 car (x dealer), i'm in the 3th position in the list, i hope to have the car in outumn 2010.
    if the new car is 100-150 kg less and with 60-80 cv more than a standard 599 with some aerodinamic improvement and more aggressive looking this is the car of my dream
