Photo Gallery: Schumi Promo-Laps the Fiorano with Ferrari 599 GTB HGTE

Seven-times World F1 Champion, Michael Schumacher, may have retired from Formula One - and good thing he did too after the latest developments, but that doesn't stop him from promoting Ferrari's "goods"... This time, the Italian dream car maker put Schumi behind the wheel of the 599 GTB equipped with the Handling GT Evoluzione package that was recently introduced at the Geneva Show. The German pilot covered about 20 laps around the Fiorano test track, Ferrari took a few photos from the promo event and well, that's about it.

As for the 599 GTB's Handling GT Evoluzione package, it includes a lower, stiffer ride, a new tire compound for better levels of grip, modified magnetorheological damper settings that promise to improve body control and a throatier exhaust sound. Styling upgrades on the HGTE package consist of a more aggressive front grille, unique 20-inch alloy wheels and plenty of carbon fiber trim in the cockpit.
