Nothing compares to the customized Shelby Mustang from Gone in 60 Seconds, called Eleanor. The way that piece of wonder drove fooled everybody into believing the famous Hollywood actor could be a muscle car driver in real life as well. In the light of this sale announcement, it appears Ferrari is what tickles Nicolas Cage's interest most.

The Ferrari 599 GTB rarely came in a 6-speed manual configuration, and ever less so on U.S. soil - it’s believed around 20 were ever shipped to the country - which adds up to the supercar’s already tremendous value.

At the time, the Tipo F140 C 6.0-liter V12 engine producing a maximum 620 PS made it the most powerful series production Ferrari road car. Styled by Pininfarina under the direction of Ferrari’s Frank Stephenson, the Ferrari 599 GTB Fiorano was the brand’s two-seat flagship, replacing the 575M Maranello.

Nicolas Cage previously owned the Prancing Horse up until a couple of years ago, when the current owner bought it from him. Whether or not the actor needed some extra money to get back on his feet after his financial struggles, it’s hard to tell, but the Ferrari was his.

Before putting the car on eBay, the vehicle received a $9,500 major service at a Ferrari Store, which again adds up to its value. The dealership selling it claims the 599 is in pristine condition and is the rarest car they have ever sold.

Style and grace are part of all modern Ferraris, and the 599 makes no exception, of course. The interior is spacious and comfortable, while carbon fiber and aluminum are utilized on the dash. But these are small details compared to what the engine represents. The model's acceleration was better than the Enzo's and the 599's 0-60 time even bested that of the McLaren F1. This was partially thanks to its traction control, which was designed for F1 cars, initially.

Now all you need to do is find $599,120 and the car could be yours.
