Ferrari

When you think about Ferrari, you probably think about expensive supercars or exotics that are prized by only the world’s wealthiest buyers. That might be true, but Ferrari – based in Maranello, Italy – is considered one of the finest automakers in the world and the pinnacle of automotive performance. It has a history that dates back to 1939 when Enzo Ferrari founded Auto Avio Costruzioni, which later produced a car in 1940. The general consensus, however, is that Ferrari wasn’t really recognized as the manufacturer that it is today until 1947 when the first Ferrari-badged car was actually completed. Over the years, the company has built a rich motorsport history and now has a lineup that doesn’t only offer high-performance cars but cars that are driver-oriented and usable as daily drivers.

This One of 16 1954 Ferrari 500 Mondial Pinin Farina Spider Has Already Attracted A Bid of $1 Million

This rare Ferrari 500 Mondial has attracted a bid of $1 million and it could go higher from here

The Ferrari 500 Mondial was inspired by a design created by Dino Ferrari to freshen up the look of the old 166. The first three of the 500 Mondials were built by Scaglietti, a young coachbuilder from Modena. Later, Pinin Farina made 15 of these, although a Ferrari historian, Marcel Massini, notes that 16 were made. Either way, one of the Pinin Farina-built models has come up for sale on Bring-a-Trailer and it has already received a bid of $1 million!

Ferrari’s Latest Icona Project Has Been Spotted And It Looks To Be Inspired By The 1960s 330 P4

A strange-looking Ferrari test Mule appeared and it hints at a 1960s-inspired Hypercar

It seems now more than ever that Italian carmakers are hell-bent on keeping the internal combustion engine alive, especially when it comes to high-end companies like Lamborghini, Ferrari, and Pagani. Lamborghini recently resurrected the Countach and, now, Ferrari seems to be bringing another Icona (Icon), as spy footage shows a camouflaged test mule that resembles the 1967 Ferrari 330 P4.

2022 Ferrari California Spyder Revival By GTO Engineering

2022 Ferrari California Spyder Revival By GTO Engineering

Since not all of us are lucky enough to have $17 million the bank, GTO Engineering has a cheaper solution

Ferrari unveiled the 250 California Spyder SWB at the 1960 Geneva Motor Show, and it soon became an iconic supercar. With only 106 units built, you can imagine auction prices in our day are sky high.

For example the most expensive one was auctioned in 2016 for a little over $17 million, the next one was auctioned in 2015 for almost $16 million. You get the picture: it is a very rare, very expensive classic car.

So, how can you afford one? Well, you don’t! Or maybe you do... if you have between £750,000 - £850,000 ($1-$1.2 million) in your bank account. If you do, head over to GTO Engineering and they will build a California Spyder for you.

If the name sounds familiar is because recently they unveiled the Squalo V-12, but they are also famous for cars like 250 GT SWB Revival or the 250 Testa Rossa Revival.

2021 Ferrari F8 Spider By Novitec

Novitec has made the already awesome Ferrari F8 Spider even better!

It is officially two years since Ferrari launched the F8 Spider back in 2019. And, if you ask us, the supercar was pretty close to being perfect, and no changes were really needed. But Novitec always finds something that can be improved. The updates offered for the F8 Spider are kind of similar to what we have already seen on the F8 Tributo unveiled at the beginning of 2021 (not the N-Largo pack though).

Italy wants Ferrari and Lamborghini to be excluded from the ban on internal combustion engines

Italy is trying to negotiate with the European Union and is seeking to protect supercar makers like Ferrari and Lamborghini from the planned phase-out of combustion engine vehicles altogether. According to a Bloomberg post, Italy wants to shield Ferrari and Lamborghini from this potential European Union ban on gas-powered engines.

This Downsized Electric Ferrari Testa Rossa J Will Get Your ’Testa-sterone’ Buzzing!

’Little Car Company’ has collaborated with Ferrari to build a three-quarters replica of the iconic Testarossa with an electric powertrain

The 250 Testa Rossa is one of the most iconic models to have rolled out of Ferrari’s factory. This racing car was in production for four years, between 1957 and 1961. In fact, a 1957 250 Testa Rossa sold for $16.4 million back in 2011! Now, even if you have the money, it’ll be very tough to find an example today. So, what’s the next best option? A replica.

Not all V-8 engines are equal. These nine cars pack sub-3.0-liter V-8s

For as long as most of us can remember, V-8 engines are associated with big power and big displacement. Although this is true for most of them, there are those that don’t share their bigger counterparts’ performance capabilities. Nevertheless, some of these engines pack a surprising amount of punch for their size. On top of that, you can find a lot of them in some pretty epic vehicles.

The Ferrari 296 GTS Is Coming Together Nicely, But Will It Be As Good As The GTB?

The Ferrari 296 GTS Is Coming Together Nicely, But Will It Be As Good As The GTB?

If the Ferrari 296 GTB isn’t stylish enough, the 296 GTS is coming very soon.

A while back Ferrari promised it would be more unpredictable in the future. Indeed, most of us were quite surprised when we learned that the next mid-engine Ferrari – the 296 GTB - would be a V-6 plug-in hybrid. We were even more surprised (or less so) that Ferrari is also working on an SUV. Some things, however, never change, as Ferrari’s mid-engine models have almost always been offered as a Berlinetta (coupe) and a Spider. Now, the Ferrari GTB’s open-top counterpart – the 296 GTS – seems to be almost ready to hit the market.

2021 Ferrari F8 Tributo N-Largo by Novitec

The Ferrari F8 Tributo with the N-Largo treatment comes with a carbon widebody kit, new wheels, enhanced power, and is limited to just 15 examples

Ferrari launched the F8 Tributo as the 488 GTB’s successor in 2019. It came with the 488 Pista’s drivetrain and underpinnings, but slot itself as an entry-level supercar, unlike the track-ready model. German aftermarket company Novitec quickly snapped the 2020 model year of the F8 Tributo and came out with its own iteration of it, which consisted of a body kit, new wheels, an engine tune-up, etc. Seeing the popularity, Novitec came up with one for the 2021 F8 Tributo as well.

Now, the company has come another version of the 2021 F8 Tributo called the F8 N-Largo. This limited-edition model comes with a new set of wheels, an engine upgrade, and a widebody kit.

This 85-Horsepower Superkart Almost Put A 710-Horsepower Ferrari 488 Pista To Shame

The Ferrari 488 Pista faced stiff competition from a Division 1 superkart!

The Ferrari 488 Pista is no joke. It makes over 700 horses from its V-8 mill and can sprint to 60 mph from rest in under three seconds. With these specs, you’d expect it to take on the best of the best in straight-line races. But, ‘Driven Media’ had other thoughts and decided to pit it against an unlikely competitor – a superkart. On paper, it’s no match to the Prancing Horse, but on the drag strip, the Ferrari faced stiff competition from it. Sounds insane, doesn’t it?

Combining modern hardware with a timeless classic shape is a dream for many automotive enthusiasts.

British company RML has done just that with this beautiful interpretation of the iconic Ferrari 250 GT SWB, based on the Ferrari 550 Maranello. RML has a long history of making bespoke chassis setups for various applications, including Motorsports.

The Ferrari 296 GTB Isn't Called Dino Because the Dino Wasn't Up to Ferrari Standards

The Ferrari 296 GTB Isn’t Called Dino Because the Dino Wasn’t Up to Ferrari Standards

Ferrari didn’t want its first V-6 road car in five decades to carry a name that was rooted in compromise

Despite the Dino being called a Ferrari by, well, just about everyone, and being produced by Ferrari, it didn’t actually wear a Ferrari badge. In fact, the Dino name itself was created in Ferrari’s attempt create a low-cost sports car, ultimately opening the door to people a little less fortunate than those that could actually afford a real Ferrari. Ferrari produced several versions of the Dino like the V-6 206 GT, 246 GT, the 246 GTS, and there was even an eight-cylinder model, the 308 GT4. Be that as it may, the Dino is remembered as a V-6 Ferrari first and foremost, while the original plan for the Dino name to represent any car that didn’t have a V-12. The name itself was somewhat successful but was discontinued after 1976. Ferrari hasn’t used the Dino name since, although, it’s been highly speculated for years that the name would make a comeback. With the reveal of the Ferrari 296 GTB, we now know why it hasn’t and probably never will.

Most will agree that Ferrari makes exquisite cars. Being exclusive, powerful, and exotic cars, they certainly aren’t subtle. Of course, that’s not the point. However, people have a different understanding of what is aesthetically correct and, often, have their own idea of how a certain car should look.

What is the Cheapest Ferrari

Before the Ferrari California T went out of production in 2017, it was the cheapest Ferrari that you could get your hands on. Today, the Cheapest Ferrari is the Portofino. The Ferrari Portofino starts out at $214,533 and is powered by a 3.9-liter V-8 that’s good for 592 horsepower and 561 pound-feet of torque. While it might be fast – it can hit 60 mph in 3.2 seconds and tops out at 199 mph – it’s actually a car suitable for daily driving and even has an electric top that allows for unlimited headroom.

What is the Sportiest Ferrari?

Every single one of Ferrari’s current models are sporty, including the Purosangue SUV, but the sportiest today is considered by most to be the 488 GTB. It is a mid-engined successor to the Ferrari 458 and is powered by a 4.0-liter V-8 that pumps out 659 horsepower and 560 pound-feet of torque. It can hit 60 mph in an estimated three seconds and tops out above the 200-mph mark. The 488 GTB features a typical Ferrari price tag that starts out at around $256,000 and increases considerably after adding options.

What is the Most Popular Ferrari?

Since Ferrari doesn’t provide global sales figures by model and it limits global production to no more than 7,000 models per year to maintain exclusivity, it’s hard to nail down a solid model as the most popular. The Ferrari 458 was the brand’s most popular model prior to being succeeded by the 488 GTB, so logic dictates that the 488 is now the brand’s most popular model. The Pur0sangue is the brand’s first SUV and due to the growing popularity in this segment, the Pur0sangue is also a strong runner as the brand’s most popular model.

What is the Most Expensive Ferrari?

If you count out the one-offs and limited-edition models, like the Ferrari LaFerrari, the brand new SF90 Stradale is the brand’s most expensive model that you can still buy. It is powered by a 4.0-liter V-8 and a pair and three electric motors that produce a combined output of 986 horsepower. It can sprint to 62 mph in 2.5 seconds and tops out at 211 mph. It also has an all-electric range of 15 miles and has no reverse gear, relying only on the electric motors to facilitate reversing.

On that note, the model that is really crowned as the most expensive Ferrari is the 1963 Ferrari GTO that recently sold at action for a spleen-bursting $70,000,000 – yeah, Ferraris do get more expensive with age.

Are Ferraris Reliable?

There was a time when Ferrari wasn’t exactly considered a reliable automaker. They are, on the other hand, very high maintenance and that led to a lot of confusion toward brand reliability. That is common in exotic car segment, but Ferrari helps to counter this by offering 7 years of free maintenance on all of its new cars. Now, keep in mind that cost of ownership is still high beyond that seven years – not because of reliability but because of the overall cost of maintenance. We’re not talking about an oil change on a Chevy Cruze, here.
