Not sure if this a repost, I did a search and could find anything


The Vandenbrink 599 GTO concept study received worldwide heartwarming acclaim by car connoisseurs and collectors. It became immediately evident we should realise this design and bring it on the road for selected customers.

The Vandenbrink GTO will be based on the new Ferrari 599 GTB Fiorano platform. Blending outstanding GT characteristics with competitive sports capability, it is considered the state of the art in GT/sports chassis and drivetrain technology.

The aluminium coachbuilding will be performed by classic automobile restoration specialist and coachbuilder Alwin Hietbrink in the Netherlands. Hietbrink is worldwide known for his excellent aluminium craftsmanship in restoration and rebuilding projects such as the Ferrari 250 GTO, 250 GT SWB, 250 Testa Rossa, 250 GT Drogo, 275 GTB, 365 GTB Daytona, 212 Vignale and many other types.

As only 5 Vandenbrink GTO's will be built, exceptional exclusivity is guaranteed. We will be happy to honour your individual requests for personal specifications on e.g. color, interior, wheels, and coachwork styling details.

3 GTO's have been sold. We are currently taking orders for the remaining 2 cars.

I love the side profile, but there's something not quite right about the front. There's too many vents.

I really really like it. I looked up some extra photos of the 250 GTO, and it really does resemble the old GTO, although the vents on either side of the main vent should've been smaller and further to the side (</nitpick>). I've always been a HUGE fan of all the 250/275 series Ferraris, they are by far the best looking ones ever built. This one is a step in the right direction, now if Ferrari only would take some design clues from this one and incorporate them in their future models, we might even see some truly gorgeous Ferraris again.

It looks great from the side and back. But the front is, weird... Don't like it very much, the front. But hey, I'd get used to it :)

Eh, I don't know, something about it puts me off. Though the front looks like some kind of toothy grin, and I agree about the extra large vents.

I do like the side profile, though.

I thought this was posted quite a while ago, but it may have been on another automotive site. I think the first picture has the best color scheme and makes it look fantastic, only thing I'd change is the emblems back to the Ferrari ones.

I like it, I would tone down the front vents, though.

It really reminds me of TVR. I think it's 'cause front lights and roundish style.

Those front lights doesn't really fit to Ferrari.

If I had to buy a NEW ferrari it would be this one in Yellow (had a yellow 250LM Burago when I was a kid) . I usually don't like new retro cars but being bored by the models Ferrari is currently offering , I would go for this one
