Ultra-Rare Ferrari 599 By Zagato Heads To Auction

Supercars / Comments

There's only one like this.

When it comes to supercars, few do it better than Ferrari. The Italian carmaker has built some of the most beautiful cars the world has ever seen, but sometimes it gets some outside help. Enter famed coachbuilder and car designer Zagato. This company is responsible for out of this world creations such as the Aston Martin Vantage V12 Zagato Heritage which is based on the equally beautiful Aston Martin V12 Vantage S and has helped create some of the most weird and wonderful Ferraris over the decades, including this ultra-rare 2009 Ferrari 599 GTZ Nibbio Spyder Zagato which is headed for auction through RM Sotheby's.

This special version of the 599 GTB was offered by Zagato as either a coupe or convertible, and only six of these Spyders were made, all in different colors, making this version a one of one. This donor 599 GTB was purchased in Geneva with only 20,100 km on the odometer, and the conversion was completed in January 2020. The exterior features a sculpted nose, sharp angular tail, and a flowing rear end. The exterior features a tasteful gunmetal grey paint job, and the interior is upholstered in black leather. Other features on the car include a carbon-fiber steering wheel, yellow tachometer, and red brake calipers.

The 599 GTB is still one of the fastest front-engined rear-wheel-drive Ferraris out there thanks to its 611 horsepower 6.0-liter V12 engine which allows it to sprint to sixty in the low three second range, and top out in the 200 mph range.

This GTZ Nibbio Spyder Zagato has been driven only 250 miles after the conversion, and should sell for big money once it goes on the block in Paris on February 13. This would make a lovely Valentine's Day gift for the third wife, wouldn't it?
