Ferrari 599 GTB Fiorano HGTE Interior View

Front-engine, grand-touring machines have a fairly specific pecking order, and the 599 is already on top, trumping most of its competitors in power or handling, if not both. The Aston Martin DBS uses the same front-mounted V-12 format, but it already has lost a head-to-head comparison test to the Ferrari. The V-8–powered Maserati GranTurismo S suffers from a 178-hp handicap. The large-and-in-charge Mercedes-Benz CL65 AMG loses in switchback agility, even if it only has eight fewer hp than the 599. As such, there’s not a soul in this office who would turn away a 599—or the opportunity to drive one—for something from any other marque. There are some here who would opt for the 599’s mid-engined stablemate, the F430, a sports car that’s arguably a bit better on back roads and racetracks.
