In 2009, Ferrari unveiled the 599XX, an extreme circuit-only machine incorporating a number of innovative technologies taken from Ferrari’s racing experience. This machine featured exceptional performance as well as advanced electronics to help the driver record the best lap times possible on the track. It also featured extensive use of carbon-fiber material as well as a 5,999cc V12 DOHC engine capable of 700 Horse power/9,000rpm matched with a 6-speed manual transmission. It had a stylish, aerodynamic body and the “ACTIFLOW” system which controlled airflow around the machine to provide increased down-force without extra drag. The Tamiya 1/10 RC kit is mated with the 6th generation TA-06 mid-level 4WD chassis kit.
