Ferrari 599 GTZ Nibbio Zagato 2007
9 cars built
8 with semi-automatic paddle shift transmission
only 1 with manual gearbox
The 599 GTZ Nibbio Zagato was based on the 599 GTB and then its body was reworked and restyled by the Italian design house, Zagato.
The front features an overhauled grille, new air intakes, and restyled headlights, but there are even more significant changes at the back. Zagato altered the shape of the roof and fitted a custom rear window that seamlessly stretches back along the rear decklid. The new roof and rear window are also painted white in contrast to the rest of the supercar, which is finished in dark blue.
Being based on the 599 GTB, the 599 GTZ Nibbio Edition is powered by a naturally-aspirated 6.0-liter V12 engine that produces 612 hp and 448 lb-ft of torque.
"Nibbio" was the name of the actual horse that inspired Ferrari to adopt the 'prancing horse' in their logo.
Car shown (chassis #149428):
The original car was built in 2007 but Zagato only reworked the body in 2017, making the car almost as fresh as rolling out of the showrooms for the first time. This car is the only one with a manual gearbox.
In 2018 it was offered for sale by Tomini Gallery in Dubai for $1,495,000, almost triple the original value.
I am not a natural flatterer, I like to think that I "tell it like it is", politely I hope. So when I tell you that I am very impressed by the contents of your website, it is just not English politeness. I of course love the subject matter but you deal with it in an energetic and respectful manner. I am overwhelmed by the research that has gone into compiling the list of coachbuilders/bodybuilders for Europe and North America. I have never heard of the vast majority of them.
Congratulations on an excellent website.
