The Ferrari 599 received some criticisms that it leans too much when it negotiates corners on speed limits and as a result registers slower times. The Ferrari engineers aren’t happy when they hear consumers complain about their baby, so like what they did with the 612 and 575, they analyzed the problem and came up with a solution.
Consumers buying their 599 red stallions can opt for an HGTE or Handling Grand Turismo Evoluzione. The handling package is aimed at delivering sportier driving dynamics – and it’s been approved by Michael Schumacher since its development!
Ferrari injected into the HGTE some harder springs, new calibration configuration for the high end shock absorbers, and roll bar for the rear. Some other modifications include lowering the ride height to lower the center of gravity of the 599 which makes the ride even more stable. The tires are also optimized to provide better road grip.
The electronics of the Ferrari 599 have been improved as well to make the car respond better to the driver. The gear box was set to meet high performance demands. A new software strategy was also installed to improve the acceleration of the car.
Rare cars rarely go on auction. Anyone who will see a 1936 Aero Mobile Lincoln may have their jaws drop to the floor especially when they know the history that it was part of Howard Hughes’ legacy.
One of the most famous, intriguing American Socialite, Howard Hughes was known to come up with his odd but wonderful creations. He built the biggest flying boat and other interesting works which are very impressive.
Hughes was also a film director and producer, an aviator, and an industrialist. He had the finances to cover for his fancies being considered one of the richest persons in the world. His machines helped him conquer some of the world records.
Howard Hughes’ knowledge of the science of flight met with the world of automotive in this 1936 Lincoln that came to be known as the Aero Mobile.
He reduced the weight of the car dramatically and modified the engine so that in can zoom into speeds beyond 100 mph. During his time, a speed like it was unheard of with passenger cars.
