Look at those Lips! The wheelsandmore Ferrari 599 GTO

Subtle tuning for a hardcore super car.

Many aftermarket tuning companies have their own specialty, whether it be wheels, exhausts, ECU tuning, aerodynamics, etc. Just like their name suggests, the focus for wheelsandmore is on wheels…and more!

Their latest creation is the Ferrari 599 GTO. Not only does it have distinct, custom 599 GTO wheels, but it also boasts a roaring V-12 engine thanks to a new exhaust system and features an adjustable suspension.

The wheelsandmore 599 GTO was fitted with custom tailored three-piece 6Sporz² ultra light forged wheels. Each of the 599 GTO wheels was assembled by hand to ensure the utmost in quality, then given a black powder coated face and yellow barrel. Due to the immense power produced by the 599 GTO’s V-12 engine, a staggered 9 x 21 front and 12.5 x 21 rear fitment was chosen to ensure the proper amount of grip at the rear. The wheels were also fitted with 245/30/21 front and 345/25/21 rear Hankook S1Evo ultra high-performance tires for maximum traction. Because each wheel is made using an advanced forging process, wheelsandmore was able to keep the weight to a minimum and not affect the overall performance of the car compared to the stock wheel and tire setup.

wheelsandmore also focused on making the Ferrari 599 GTO a better handling car without sacrificing everyday drivability. A new hydraulic suspension system was installed that allows the driver to raise the front suspension by 1.18 inches in order to overcome obstacles such as speed bumps. The rebound and compression of the suspension can also be adjusted to suit different driving styles for optimal handling performance or comfort.

Part of what makes the 599 GTO the fastest Ferrari ever made, according to the automaker, is the 6.0-liter V-12 engine that produces 661 bhp and 460 lb-ft. of torque bone stock. wheelsandmore however, just couldn’t leave that engine alone. The German tuner installed a handcrafted, stainless steel exhaust system with remote-controlled adjustable flaps and an ECU tune designed to accommodate the reduction in backpressure. After the upgrade, the V-12 produced 705 horsepower and 490 lb-ft. of torque.

All of the upgrades from the new 599 GTO wheels to the V-12 engine upgrades are currently available from wheelsandmore. The adjustable hydraulic suspension comes standard with a five-year limited warranty. Pricing has not been released.
