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.

Pure Soul Injection: The KEYVANY HP850 Upgrade For the Ferrari F8 Tributo

Pure Soul Injection: The KEYVANY HP850 Upgrade For the Ferrari F8 Tributo

850 horsepower and 218 mph seems more appropriate for a Ferrari model

We like to think that most of Ferrari’s models are close to perfection from the factory, and they don’t need too many updates. Take the F8 Tributo for example - the replacement for the 488 GTB - it has everything it needs: a great exterior look, a luxurious cabin, and all the power it needs. But Keyvany - a German-based tuner - thinks that there is room for lots of improvement, so it updated pretty much every aspect of the F8 Tributo.

Here's How Much Horsepower a Ferrari 360 Challenge Stradale Makes After 20 Years

Here’s How Much Horsepower a Ferrari 360 Challenge Stradale Makes After 20 Years

Will this Ferrari 360 CS disappoint or surprise its owner at the dyno, after 20 years?

In general, Italian cars are not known for reliability. While we won’t be getting into the argument of how true that is, we have to give credit where it’s due. Ferrari is, more often than not, associated with a level of engineering matched by few, and the brand’s flat-plane V-8 engines are second only to its sublime V-12 mills. That said, YouTube channel Auto Sportivo Bedford, together with former Car Throttle host, Alex Kerston (Autoalex Cars), finds out how well a Ferrari 360 Challenge Stradale holds up after 20 years, and by that, we mean how many of its “prancing horses” are still there.

Ferrari Is Still Unsure of How to Transition into an EV Company

Ferrari Is Still Unsure of How to Transition into an EV Company

Ferrari’s traditional approach to building cars keeps enthusiasts happy, but also postpones the brand’s transition towards making high-performance EV models

Ferrari is, probably, the automotive brand that most begrudgingly made the transition to electrification and SUVs. The Italian sports car manufacturer is still behind on the electrification front compared to most other manufacturers and is yet to announce definite plans for a fully-electric model. Ferrari’s first step towards electrification began with the 2013 LaFerrari, which featured a hybrid powertrain revolving around a V-12, but there are a few reasons why the Maranello-based carmaker is yet to make a transition.

This 1979 Ferrari 308 GTB Is Definitely a Showstopper

This 1979 Ferrari 308 GTB Is Definitely a Showstopper

This 43-year-old Ferrari could be worth a Toyota bZ4X

Ferrari introduced the 308 GTB at the 1975 Paris Motor Show alongside the 308 GTS convertible. These mid-engined coupes were manufactured between 1975-1985 and were designed by Leonardo Fioravanti at Pininfarina. The 308 GTB, which served as the Ferrari Dino 246’s spiritual successor, was greatly influenced by the Dino 308 GT4. It represents the classic mid-engined Italian supercars from the 70s. If any of these interests you, a 1979 308 GTB is up for grabs on Bring a Trailer, and it could be the best way to feel some old-school motoring vibes.

Can a 1990s Ferrari Take On An All-electric KIA?

Can a 1990s Ferrari Take On An All-electric KIA?

The Ferrari F355 was quick in its day, but can it run with a futuristic crossover like the Kia EV6?

If there’s one thing we have established in recent years, it is that EVs are quick, at least when it comes to 0 to 60 mph (97 km/h) acceleration. The Kia EV6 is a good example of this, and Carwow reckons that its electric powertrain is capable enough to allow the all-electric crossover to keep up with a 1990s Ferrari F355. The mid-engine Ferrari was pretty quick 25 years ago, but can its V-8 still provide enough oomph or will it fail miserably against “the future”?

Because this opens up an opportunity for them to be ’unique’

It’s pretty much inevitable at this point that cars are heading toward an electric future, and supercar manufacturers like Ferrari—who are known for their screaming V-8s and V-12s—have no choice but to transition to electric vehicles (EVs). While that may seem like a boring future where Ferraris will seem to be no different from other silent, electric performance vehicles, the Italian supercar manufacturer argues that won’t be the case.

The world loves SUVs, and Ferrari knows this very well, but will the Purosangue be a true sports car?

The Ferrari Purosangue is due to be unveiled this September, and it will possess a V-12, one of the last remaining new cars to come with such an engine as the world continues to shift towards electrification. However, with Ferrari now following everyone else in the supercar realm, such as Aston Martin with the DBX and Lamborghini with the Urus in making an SUV, will the Purosangue be a true sports car?

All You Need is Carbon Fiber and $50,000 to Make the Ferrari SF90 Better

The question is: Can you really make a car like the Ferrari SF90 better?

When Ferrari unveiled the SF90 the world was mesmerized. Except for its amazing design, the SF90 is not only Ferrari’s first plug-in hybrid vehicle, but it is also more powerful and quicker than the LaFerrari. So, is there any possible way to improve a car like this? While gut wants to reply with a hasty no, the guys over 1016 Industries have a different opinion. While they decided the powertrain delivered more than enough, they wanted to make the SF90 look even better.

It is official; electric cars are here on everyone’s minds, and they are not going anywhere unless advancements are made in hydrogen, but that is not looking like it will happen anytime soon. The final sign of this fact is going to arrive on June 16 as Ferrari will give us all the nitty-gritty details of their step into the electric supercar and super-SUV market in a press briefing. The short story, however, is that Ferrari recently bought up land near their fabled Maranello factory with the plans to build a third production facility to focus on electric motors, EV batteries, and the development of future hybrid models.

Ferrari has been testing a hardcore version of the SF90 Stradale for about a month now - at least from what we know. The first prototype was caught testing back in May around Maranello, and it seems that the Italian company is now continuing its testing session at a much higher altitude. A prototype of the SF90 Versione Speciale and a very strange-looking mule of the Ferrari Daytona SP3 were caught testing in the Alps at an altitude of approximately 2500 meters.

Designed by Leonardo Fioravanti at Pininfarina, the Ferrari Berlinetta Boxer is a series of sports cars produced by Ferrari between 1973 and 1984. The first BB model was the 365 GT4 BB and it was followed by the BB 512 and the BB 512i. While the first BB model was unveiled at the 1971 Turin Auto Show, the 512i followed 10 years later at the 1981 Frankfurt Motor Show. The BB models were not built for the U.S. market, and whatever units you can find here were imported and federalized in-period via the gray market.

Here’s a list of the fastest Ferraris ever produced

What is the fastest Ferrari? That’s one of the most common questions asked in the car community. However, there are so many ways to deal with this question. Is it fastest in terms of top speed or perhaps acceleration? Ferraris, however, excel in various metrics. One may have the highest top speed, but it won’t have the fastest 0-62 mph time. So, with all factors considered, here are the fastest Ferraris ever produced, ranked by their top speed, along with all the important metrics you need to know.

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.
