Nibbio is the Italian word for 'eagle', isn't it strange that a Ferrari has an eagle or vice versa? So no wonder if it bring up some kind of the car's identity distraction when someone passes and looks at it while saying, "Erm is this a Ferrari or Nibbio?" or ''Oh, it's Nibbio but not Ferrari."

And the name Zagato comes from Uno Zagato who in 1910 started a design and coach-building workshop in Italy. He created some of the most iconic designs in history and worked with many automotive manufacturing companies. Zagato also designed many racing cars. Recently they started designing one-off cars for individual customers by incorporating a double bubble roof as their signature.

Back in 2007, when Zagato commisioned by discerning gentleman to turn the standard version of Ferrari 599 GTB into one of the most exclusive automobiles on earth and as the result here's the Ferrari 599 GTZ Nibbio Zagato. Under the hood, the 599 GTZ Nibbio Zagato has the same drivetrain as the standard 599 GTB, 6.0-liter, naturally aspirated, V-12 that churns out 612 hp and 448 pound-feet of torque.

There are only nine cars have ever been built, of which eight have Ferrari's F1 paddle gearshift. And the car in discussed here is the only car in the world comes in a two-tone paint described as Blue Cavallino with a dark blue body and a white roof. This is a fascinating look for the car and makes it stand out and immediately catches the eye.
Now the interior is stock from Ferrari but upholstered by Zagato in this beautiful blue-colored leather. It just makes the car feel extra rich and opulent. You would be forgiven for mistaking the big bitch of this sports car to be a luxury sedan.

Even in 2006, the gorgeous car is noted as the most powerful road-going Ferrari ever built. And as quoted from DriveTribe, not long ago the car is sold at a pretty fantastic price of US $1.5 million in 2019. *** [EKA | FROM VARIOUS SOURCES | DRIVETRIBE ]
