When I one day (soon) decide to stop toiling in Corporate America, and forgo a steady paycheck, I’m going to pursue a XX-rated career. That’s right. I’m going to enter this fast-moving industry and let it all hang out. In this industry, I will find my way on to the world’s best race circuits, involved with one of the world’s best race cars. The Ferrari 599XX.
The Ferrari Five Nine Nine GTB Fiorano, of which the XX racer is based upon, is a beauty in its own right. She’s the latest symbol of Ferrari’s Berlinetta theme. This theme has produced classics such as the 250GT, 275 GTB and 365 GTB4 The front view of the Five Nine Nine pays proper homage to her older Ferrari siblings with large headlights that seamlessly flow into her flared front fenders. Further tribute is paid through her fastback side profile.
Ms. Fiorano take it a couple of steps further. She displays her aggression in the sickle-like impression at the trailing edge of her front fender into her front door. If that’s not enough, she arrogantly distinguishes herself from the Ferrari trademark quad circle tail lamps in exchange for two single circle tail lamps.
This car needs no intro. One look at her and you know she’s special.
