Ferrari is launching a special edition of its 599 GTB Fiorano equipped with the
HGTE (Handling Grand Turismo Evoluzione) package, which will be built in a
highly exclusive run of less than a dozen cars. The special edition models go by
the name ‘599 GTB Fiorano HGTE China Limited Edition’ and were developed
together with Chinese artist Lu Hao.
One of those will be auctioned-off as a unique, one-of-a-kind edition itself,
signed by artist Lu Hao, who has added his artistic touches to the limited
edition series. The bidding will take place at a charity gala auction in Beijing
that Ferrari will be holding on November 3rd.
The models come in a two-tone color scheme, featuring a special Rosso Fuoco red
paint scheme and a grey roof. A special touch added by Hao is an ancient Chinese
script called "Xiao Zhuan" to engrave a name plaque for each edition as well as
mark the car throughout, such as on the engine starter button and the rev
"The 599 China Limited Edition model is a true masterpiece, combining rich
Chinese artistic heritage with Italian design in a most spectacular way," says
Ferrari Asia Pacific CEO Marco Mattiacci.
Some of the charitable proceeds have been earmarked for Chinese students in the
automotive engineering field.
