Ferrari 599 GTO Delivers Flowers in Switzerland, Driven By a Lady

Do you know those occasions when a flower delivery was truly urgent? Well, it looks like the adventure that bought us here might've been one of them. Why do I believe that? Well, for one thing, we're looking at quite a bouquet, one that is sitting in the trunk of a Ferrari.

Oh, and this isn't a standard Ferrari, if that word can be used to describe a Prancing Horse. Instead, the flowers were being hauled in a 599 GTO (more on this below).

The shenanigan took place in Switzerland, coming to us via the GT Board Facebook page. However, the aficionado who reportedly caught the whole thing on camera came to deliver an extra detail in the comments section of the social media post showcasing the stunt.

In fact, you can check out the post detailing the nicely-colored adventure below:


To be more precise, the gear head explained the Maranello toy was driven by a lady. Well, this actually raises more questions rather than answering any, but at least we know the flowers were in good hands.

Sure, anybody can notice that the Ferrari 599 GTO isn't you average flower delivery machine. But a car lover will remember the Italian automotive producer only built 599 units of this masterpiece.

In fact, back in 2010 when it debuted, the 599 GTO was Ferrari's quickest-ever road car, managing to one-up the Enzo on the Fiorano test track.

The velocity tool was marketed as a road-legal incarnation of the 599XX customer racer, which, in turn, was based on the 599 GTB.

Heck, US gear heads might get even crazier for the sighting of the 670 horsepower V12 monster, since only 125 units of the beast made it across the pond.

P.S.: Is it just me, or does this whole delivery thing make one think of the infamous Ferrari 250 SWB Breadvan?
