Chassis no. ZFFFC60A390167772. Nero over Cuoio leather. 5999/612hp, 6-speed manual, carbon ceramic brakes, Daytona seats, Scuderia shields.

Evaluation: Represented with just 4730 miles. One of 30 cars equipped with a 6-speed, and 20 of them came to North America. Good paint overall with a filled paint chip under the driver’s side headlight and a few small chips along the rear brake duct intakes. The underbody is clean but shows light aging. The driver’s seat has light creasing in the leather. Very well maintained and has little use.

Bottom Line: On modern Ferraris, a third pedal and that famous open-gate shifter command a gigantic premium. The later the car is, the higher the premium, and on 599s a stick shift can essentially double the price of a car with flappy paddles. As analog, row-your-own-gears exotic cars have become truly extinct, cars like this have only become more appealing to enthusiasts. Most of the ones on offer in Monterey this year sold very well, and it’s hard to see values going anywhere but up. This 599 last appeared at Gooding & Co.’s Pebble Beach sale three years and about 200 miles ago, when it sold for $517,000. Not quite Bitcoin, but certainly not a bad return on investment, either.
