Chris Harris has recently sold his Ferrari 599 GTB because the Italian supercar was too expensive to run and to maintain.
Owning a supercar isn’t that easy even if you think that money is not a problem. Chris Harris had to learn this the hard way, after selling his Porsche in order to buy a second-hand Ferrari 599 GTB. The Italian supercar in question had cost the journalist approximately 10, 000 GBP for around 3, 000 miles, a distance which he covered in just over 10 months. This includes fuel, insurance, storing and a pair of new tires. Chris Harris has decided to get rid of the 599 GTB. What do you think his next car should be?
As a quick reminder, the Ferrari 599 GTB has been produced between 2006 and 2012 when it was replaced by the impressive Ferrari F12 Berlinetta. The 599 GTB came as a two-seat berlinetta, with an FMR layout and a 6.0 liter V12 engine mated to a six-speed manual or a six-speed sequential transmission. The Ferrari 599 GTB was 4,665 mm long, 1,962 mm wide and 1,336 mm tall, with a curb weight of 1,688 kg.
