Finding the money for a 599 is only half the battle. If your name's not already on the list, be prepared to wait for years for delivery unless you can persuade someone who's got one on order to sell (usually for well over the odds). Running costs will be huge, but if you can afford the car, that's really not an issue.
Ferrari 599 Coupe quality & reliability
Ferrari build-quality standards are now as good as anyone's in most respects, and the choice of materials suggests quality throughout. You can choose between leather, carbonfibre and aluminium finishes, usually for a substantial surcharge.
Ferrari 599 Coupe safety & security
Ferrari claims the 599's aluminium passenger cell is so strong and stiff that the car doesn't need lateral airbags. Whether that's the case or not, you get them anyway, as well as face-saving airbags, seatbelt pre-tensioners and all the crash-preventing traction and braking aids you could ask for. The 599 even meets pedestrian crash-protection requirements.
