Rarely Beautiful
Ferrari 599 GTZ Nibbio Zagato

In 2006, Ferrari showcased its latest V12 engine through the 599 GTB, named once again according to its 5,999 cc engine displacement. While a fine piece of design in its own right, the limelight was later taken by its variant 599 GTZ Nibbio Zagato, and it’s easy to understand why.

Only nine examples of 599 GTZ Nibbio Zagato were built. For this particular example, Zagato reworked on the carbon fibre body panels in 2017, as commissioned by Tomini Classics from Dubai.  It received the signature ‘double bubble’ roof and unique back window design from the Italian coachbuilder. What’s more, it is the only example that feature a manual six-speed gearbox. Under the brand new shell is the same 5,999 cc engine that delivers 620 hp and 608 Nm.
