XX Rated

Post by Kiskaloo on Sun 4 Apr 2010 - 20:15

Kara's found another way to blow a million of Michele's Euro - the 2009 Ferrari 599XX:




Designed for track use (and, like the Enzo-based FXX, not street legal), it is based on the 599 GTB Fiorano. The engine is upgraded, now rated at 700 PS (510 kW; 690 hp)@9000rpm. It also weighs about 300kg less thanks to extensive use of carbon fiber and removing components (though it still has air conditioning) and the aerodynamics were retuned to give more downforce (280 kg @ 200 km/h, 630 kg @ 300 km/h).

What category is it intended to race in? Looks to me like a decent FIA GT1 entry, but it's pretty late to be rolling out an entry for this season.

Alternate possibility; it could be intended for a spec series like the 360 Challenge Stradale.

Perversely, it's actually illegal in just about everything due to things like it's active aerodynamics and cutting-edge stability control systems. The car does come with a warranty (5000 km which for a pure track car, is pretty generous) so you can enter it into endurance events like 6 Hours of Vallelunga.

Ferrari does have an 18-event challenge set at tracks around the world, but instead of the 29 planned cars racing each other, they race the clock individually with the goal of improving their time as the weekend progresses. This idea appeals to Kara, since it's a personal improvement challenge.

Of course alternately she could always wait for the apparently slated GTO road going version...

Kara: "Grab your checkbook, Michele! We're going to Modena!"

[Five minutes later, Kara appears with a small travel bag.]

Michele: "What was the hold-up?"

Kara: "Had to change my unmentionables after watching that video. No worries, though. I brought spares."

[Holds up the bag.]

Elio, who up to this point has been sitting in the office minding his own business instantly goes pale. Without a word, he gets up and stiffly walks out of the room, desperately seeking a drink.

Michele: Ohhh...that can't be good. Kara, I fear you've gone & blown a circuit breaker in the old fella's mind.

Claes: (looking up from her book) Doesn't Mr. Alboreto's mind still use old style screw-in fuses?

Kara:

Michele:

Back to the real world; the original 250 GTO's stood for Gran Turismo Omologato, indicating that they were a homologation special for GT racing (where they found great success until the Cobra's showed up). The second GTO, the 288, was intended for the Group B circuit racing class, which unfortunately never materialized.

I certainly hope this 3rd application of the hallowed moniker indicates they plan to race it...

Speaking or orgasm inspiring sounds; has anyone heard the AMG SLS (being used as the F1 Safety Car this season)?

There were a few in-car shots of it during today's Monaco Grand Prix, and it's a good thing I can't afford one...I'd spend all my time sitting inside listening to the engine instead of going to work, eating, bathing, posting on this forum...

Hmm, not bad at all (looked it up on Youtube)... but my current "favorite engine note" prize still goes to the Morgan Aeromaxx... with the side-exit exhaust.

It is indeed impressive.

I heard a good bit of her during the race with all the Safety Car periods we had for accidents and that loose drain cover.
