Ferrari Teases Geneva Show Cars: 599 HGTE and 599XX

Almost completing the lineup of previews ahead of the Geneva Auto Show (which starts March 3rd), Ferrari has released a teaser of the two vehicles it plans to unveil, the 599 GTB HGTE and the Laboratorio Tecnologico 599xx.

Ferrari is keeping tight-lipped about the HGTE (Handling GT Evoluzione) 599, but we have already reported that it will feature new five-spoke 20-inch wheels (pictured above) as well as a firmer suspension and a sound-adjustable exhaust system.

Ferrari’s other piece of news is the 599XX. Called the Laboratorio Tecnologico, this new model will bring all of Ferrari’s most sophisticated technologies together in one street-legal car. Ferrari says that many of the items are derived from road and Formula1 research and it will be the first time they have been ever used. The 599XX will be sold in extremely limited numbers and offered to just a select few Ferrari clients.

Ferrari aims to have a jam-packed stand at the 2009 Geneva Auto Show, with a total of seven different vehicles. The 599 HGTE will displayed in a three-layer metallic Rosso paint and the 599XX will use a color similar to the F2008. Other cars include a Grigio Titanio F430 Scuderia Spider 16M, a Rosso Corsa F430 Scuderia, a Nero Metallizzato California and an Atelier 612 Scaglietti. The final car will be the Formula 1 car that won Ferrari its 16th Constructors’ World title.
