The Ferrari F12berlinetta looks and performs like its ready to throw down with nearly any supercar on the planet. To be honest, it really doesn’t need any aesthetic upgrades because it already looks pretty darn special.
But don’t tell that to tuning company Revozport who decided to give the F12berlinetta a new styling program that provides a more elegant look while retaining the classic styling of the supercar. It even gave the program a name: the RZF-12.
It’s definitely an acquired taste, especially for the price Revozport is charging for it (check that one out after the jump). Plus, it doesn’t have a performance upgrade, which means that the F12berlinetta retains its 6.3-liter V-12 engine that produces 740 horsepower and 508 pound-feet of torque with a 0-to-60 mph time of just 3.1 seconds and a top speed of 211 mph.
We won’t blame you if you passed on this aftermarket kit, but if you had the money to spare, plus an F12berlinetta for that matter, then you might find the appeal in it.

Just yesterday we mentioned a rumor suggesting there will be an extreme version of the recently announced LaFerrari supercar . However, Ferrari officials have denied those rumors and reported that we are not going to get something more extreme than the LaFerrari.
According to the Italian company , the man who sparked the rumors, LaFerrari’s chief designer Flavio Manzoni, got the wrong idea. In a recent interview with AutoCar, he reported that there are lots of design elements Ferrari didn’t used in the LaFerrari, but they will be included in future Ferrari models, including in a more extreme version of the model.
However, it looks like such a car is "easily done, but it’s not the case." Meaning that Ferrari has no plans for a model placed above the LaFerrari and such a model is or never was under discussion. So we guess we are not going to get our LaFerrari EVOXX after all! At least that’s what the super-secretive supercar builder claims

Nothing surprises us anymore when it comes to Ferrari . Its relentless pursuit of building some of the world’s most extreme supercars knows no bounds.
And after Autocar reported that there are plans to build an extreme version of its newest hypercar, the LaFerrari , it all seemed par for the course for the Italian automaker.
With the LaFerrari limited to just 499 units, Ferrari wants to build an even more exclusive version of the 963-horsepower hypercar. That’s what Flavio Manzoni, the LaFerrari’s chief designer, told Autocar. Could this possibly be the LaFerrari EVOXX that we spoke of back in March?
“When we were producing the original design proposals for LaFerrari,” said Manzoni, “there was one proposal that I thought was especially beautiful. So we decided to keep that one back for something truly special in the future.”
That "something truly special" appears to be this mystery hypercar that could pack well north of 1,000 horsepower. Talk about its exclusivity should be one of the most important details of this vehicle; Manzoni estimates that no more than 10 could be built with an estimated price tag of anywhere between £3 million ($4.67 million) and £5 million ($7.78 million).

Okay, if you grew up through the 1980s and 1990s – yes I am dating myself here – with The Price is Right, then you likely remember that most of the cars they gave away are essentially junk by today’s standards. We can all hear the late Rod Roddy saying “A brand new car; this 1985 Chevrolet Citation…” etcetera, etcetera. When we see these reruns today, we all laugh our tails off, but the contestants were more than happy to get their 1980s econo-crapboxes.
Fast-forward 20-plus years and now we have the once-famous-now-reduced-to-riding-Bob-Barker’s-coattail Drew Carey hosting the show and prizes are equally as modern as that 1985 Citation once was. Still, we never saw a super-cool car offered up by the Price is Right folks – until now. The car offered up as the grand prize for winning “Three Strikes” in the above video was a Ferrari 458 Italia – yeah, the $285k supercar .
Unfortunately for the lady that was playing for the prize, she was given the hook in short order, thanks to three quick strikes. Then again, maybe it was a blessing, considering the taxes alone on this supercar would be nearly $25,000.
Check out the video above to see the action. If you don’t want to wait through the entire video, you can skip to the good part at about the 3-minute mark.

The new 2014 LaFerrari is no doubt the most amazing car we have seen this year, as it combines a stunning design language with tons of horsepower under the hood. And when it comes to designing great watches inspired by Ferrari ’s design language, the folks over Hublot do an amazing job.
Its latest creation - the MP-05 "LaFerrari " is a wristwatch worthy of its name. Not only because it features a great look, but the new MP-05 watch also scored a new world record by way of a 50-day power reserve.
The watch was designed entirely in parallel with the car, alongside the Ferrari team. It features 637 components for the movement, a Tourbillon and 11 barrels arranged in a line just like a spinal column.
Hublot designed a complex-shaped sapphire crystal reminiscent of the Laferrari’s outline, as well as an open case-back made from black PVD titanium. What is very interesting on the new MP-05 "LaFerrari" watch is the original display: on the right side of the barrels you will see the hour and the minute, and on the left side the power reserve.
The new MP-05 "LaFerrari" will be limited to only 50 units. The price isn’t available online, but you can head to Hublot’s website to find a retailer near you.

A few days ago, the Dubai Police took delivery of a patrol car unlike any other: a Lamborghini Aventador. Today it’s time for another supercar to join its fleet: a Ferrari FF . This special FF costs around 2 million Emirati Dirham (about $544,000 at the current exchange rates).
The two models have been added to the police fleet in an attempt to "enhance security on the roads in accordance with highest international standards and technical developments," according to an official statement coming from Lt Gen Dahi Khalfan Tamim, Dubai Police Chief. Both supercars will be used to provide best road security in different areas of Dubai.
Just like with the Aventador, the new FF Police Car is painted in a cool white paint with green stripes - official colors in the Emirates. It also features lots of sirens and for the interior it will most likely be offered with all the gadgets required by a police vehicle.
Since last year, rumors have been floating around that Ferrari is going to unveil a new-generation California soon. Quite a strange move from the Italian company , considering the model was unveiled just five years ago. However, with the California being the most successful model in its lineup, we can’t blame Ferrari for wanting to keep it fresh and updated.
Rumors suggested that the second-generation California will use a twin-turbocharged V-8 engine and the latest prototype caught testing by Marchettino at the Fiorano racetrack in the above video adds some substance to these rumors. Listen closely from low engine speeds and you can hear the faint whistling from the engine.
It is believed that the engine will be the same used in the new-generation Maserati Quattroporte - not a big surprise, considering it has been developed in cooperation with Ferrari. This new engine will deliver a little bit more power over the current generation, so we will likely see a 500-horsepower California when the second-gen model rolls out.
The new generation Ferrari California is expected to be unveiled by the end of the year.
For most kids in the world, the biggest joy will be to drive the bike he or she always dreamed about. But how about a Ferrari F430 ? No, not a toy one; a real-life one with a 483-horsepower, V-8 engine under the hood and that sprints to 60 mph in just 4.5 seconds. Yeah, that one.
Apparently, to these two Indian children, who look no older than 8-years old, this powerful supercar is a toy. This is all too evident with just how well they handle this machine on the public roadway.
Apparently, the two childrens’ parents were there, or at least some adults were there filming, so we can only assume they had permission. However, we cannot stress enough to you just how stupid it is to let your kids take control of any car, let alone a powerful supercar. Especially when the need the New York City telephone book to see over the steering wheel…
The 24 Hours of LeMons is finally upon us. Well, it’s actually been quietly crossing the nation since it kicked off on March 16th at Carolina Motorsports Park, but this is the first cool thing we have seen from it thus far.
One of the key rules of the LeMons circuit is that the car must not cost you more than $500 total, which includes buying and fixing your heap-of-choice – sans safety stuff, of course. Well, the last thing you would ever expect to see in this group of barely running rust buckets is a Ferrari P4/5 , right?
Well, get that irony train rolling, as that is exactly what was there. No, no one managed to bamboozle some rich dude into selling a P4/5 for $500; this was just Jim Glickenhaus heading up the field at the Monticello, New York race that took place on April 6th and 7th.
You can check out the above video, which is shot from the pace truck, to see this $4 million one-off prancing horse leading a pack of rundown jalopies. As an added bonus, if you watch the whole video, you also get to see the pace truck haul the first casualty – a mid-1980s Dodge Charger – of off the track.
