The 611bhp 599 is already the best handling GT in the world, powered by one of the greatest engines of all time. The HGTE option for the 599 is a finessing of the 599’s already exemplary road manners, essentially bumping the car up a couple of notches on the hardcore scale. When fitted, it adds a little more involvement, agility and grip.
Spelled out, HGTE stands for Handling Gran Turismo Evoluzione. In hardware terms this means stiffer springs front and rear (by 17 and 15 per cent respectively), a meatier rear anti-roll bar, a 0.4in drop in ride height, half a degree more negative camber at the front and new chunky-looking, five-spoke, three-piece wheels, half an inch wider than before at the front. The Pirelli P Zero tyres are unchanged in size but are made from a new compound that improves grip without significantly harming wear.
There are a couple of software tweaks, too. The magnetic dampers have been recalibrated to act more aggressively and the change time of the AMT paddle-shift transmission has been reduced to 85 milliseconds when the manettino dial on the steering wheel is switched to its Race position – and that’s definitely where you’ll want to keep it.
The big Italian feels beautifully planted and precise everywhere on the circuit, but the defining aspect of the HGTE pack is that the faster you go, the better it gets.
