All the poor owners of the Ferrari 599 GTB Fiorano who bought the car before the car with the HGTE package was offered and are now jealous of their mates can now fit the HGTE package as an aftermarket package, although it will not include the interior trim modifications that are part of the factory HGTE cars.
Look after the jump for full details on the package.
The HGTE package includes:
1) Handling, includes:
- Lower suspension (10mm)
- New magnetorheologically controlled suspension calibration for the Manettino SPORT and RACE configurations
- More rigid suspension springs (front + 17%, rear + 15%)
- More rigid rear anti-roll bars (diameter increased to 25mm)
- HGTE specific tyres with improved compound (8% more grip)
- 3-piece modular rims with reduced weight (forged spokes) and special new design
2) Performance (only available for post-2008 cars, from engine no. 122779), includes:
- New exhausts silencers with two-tone finish tailpipes
- Enhanced F1 gearshift actuation, with response times reduced to 85ms
- New accelerator logic with modified mapping for improved throttle response
- N.B. The Performance kit cannot be installed on cars with manual gearboxes.
3) Exhaust, includes:
- New exhausts silencers with two-tone finish tailpipes. The Exhaust kit is designed for vehicles that cannot receive the software updates listed in the Performance kit since the engine was produced before assembly number 122779 (pre-2008), all cars with manual gearboxes, or clients who are only interested in modifying the styling and sound of their own cars. The Exhaust kit is included in the Performance kit, for cars post-2008.
4) Aesthetic, includes:
- New design front grille with a special chromatic treatment
- Burnished finish to Prancing Horse symbols on the front grill and rear boot lid
The kit costs £19,703 for 2008 cars onwards and £17,213 for cars before that, as there are differences in the equipment as listed above. You can be sure Naza Italia will be offering this locally. Look after the jump for a video and a hi-res gallery.
