FERRARI has used the Detroit show to announce the creation of a new model from Maranello – the 599 GTB, which it claims is the most powerful V12-engined production car of all time.

To be officially unveiled on February 28 at the Geneva motor show, the mid-front-engined two-seater coupe uses an Enzo-derived 5999cc V12 which produces a stunning 620hp (462kW) at 7600rpm.

It is built using the latest evolution of Ferrari’s all-aluminium body and chassis, which sets up a weight/power ratio of just 2.6kg per horsepower.
