active aerodynamics integrated into the electronic control systems, combined
with new Pirelli tyres, make the 599XX Evo a dynamic, highly sophisticated car.
“Opening Gap” wing inspired by Formula 1
The ECU controls the aerodynamic package and the new rear wing. The wing features winglets instead of the more traditional end-plate, and Ferrari has introduced a new concept called the “opening gap”, with two flaps with profiles similar to those used in Formula 1.
In addition, an active system rotates the two flaps, adjusting the downforce between the front and rear axles to suit the speed and steering. The result of this innovative concept is better cornering performance.
The 599XX active rear wing is activated automatically according to specific parameters which are integrated with the car's other control functions (ESP, ABS, SMC and F1-Trac) that have all been recalibrated. The ‘opening gap’ system logic is based on the following parameters: steering wheel angle; longitudinal acceleration; lateral acceleration; vehicle speed.
New aerodynamic splitter
The new aerodynamics package for the 599XX also includes a new front splitter and a new rear diffuser featuring a larger surface area and redesigned fences and foot-plates. With these solutions the total downforce at 200 km/h is boosted to 330 kg when the flaps are open and 440 kg in the closed configuration.
599XX engine: power and speed
The adoption of side exhausts allowed the engineers to increase engine power by 20 CV to 750 CV (again at 9000 rpm), while maximum torque has been increased to 700 Nm. When combined with a final gear ratio that's slightly shorter to improve acceleration on technical, medium to high-speed tracks, the result is that the car laps Fiorano in just 1'15'.
