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.

Kia Designer Brings The Ferrari F40 Into The Future

Kia Designer Brings The Ferrari F40 Into The Future

If the Ferrari F40 was penned today, this is what it could look like

Ferrari launched the F40 back in 1987 as a successor for the 288 GTO. It was designed by Pininfarina and instantly became a huge success. Despite Ferrari’s wish to only build 400 units, high demand increased the production number to a total of 1,315 units, with 213 coming to the United States.

But how would the Ferrari F40 would look if Ferrari were to start producing it today? Marcell Sebestyen - a senior exterior designer for Kia Europe - came with an answer to the question and completely reimagined the look of the F40.

Drag Race: Tuned McLaren 720S vs Ferrari SF90 Stradale - Who Gets To Sit On The Throne?

Watch a tuned McLaren 720S try to rip the Ferrari SF90 Stradale to shreds in this drag race for the ages

Brooks from ‘DragTimes’ took his Ferrari SF90 Stradale to the drag strip for a fight against a McLaren 720S. The 720S isn’t stock. It features upgraded intake, downpipes, and is tuned to make close to 900 horses at the wheel. This puts the power outputs very close to the SF90 Stradale’s. Do you think the British can one-up the Italian hybrid beast here, or will the latter prevail?

Ferrari Is Planning More Icona Models With V-12 Power

Ferrari will continue to give us ultra-exclusive, classic-inspired Icona models. At least some of them will continue to rely on Ferrari’s V-12 engine

A while back, Ferrari promised that it will be more unpredictable in regard to its upcoming models. It seems the Italian company relies on its ultra-exclusive Icona models in order to do so, as it recently unveiled the $2.26-million Ferrari Daytona SP3, of which only 599 will be made. This, however, will not be the only model we see from Ferrari’s Icona program, as the company is working on more special projects, with V-12 power.

The best-looking Ferrari now goes like the fastest Ferrari

However, the German tuner NOVITEC has just released their upgrade kits for the Ferrari Roma, and it should make the best-looking Ferrari currently on sale go even better than its looks.

Ferrari Recalls Over 5,600 Cars For A Very Scary Reason

Ferrari Recalls Over 5,600 Cars For A Very Scary Reason

The Ferrari 458 and 488 could suddenly and without warning lose the ability to stop

A car that can break the 200-mph barrier uses some pretty beefy bits and pieces to make that speed a reality. However, the equipment needed to bring you back to a standstill, most notably the brakes, is just as integral as the other parts. So imagine you are driving your 200+ mph Italian supercar when you press the brake pedal and nothing happens. That is a possibility, we are finding out, in the Ferrari 458 and 488 models made between September 26, 2009, and August 28, 2019.

Drag Race: The Tesla Model S Plaid's Closest Fuel-Powered Rival To Date Is The Hybrid Ferrari SF90 Stradale

Drag Race: The Tesla Model S Plaid’s Closest Fuel-Powered Rival To Date Is The Hybrid Ferrari SF90 Stradale

The Tesla Model S Plaid was probably sh*tting bricks when it saw the Ferrari SF90 Stradale as its drag strip legacy was in danger!

Brooks from ‘DragTimes’ has come up with yet another Tesla Model S Plaid race, but for once, its legacy is at stake. So far, the Plaid has remained pretty much unbeatable, except for losing to the Rimac Nevera. This time, it faces the Ferrari SF90 Stradale – a hybrid car that makes close to 1,000 horses and is significantly lighter than the Plaid, thus giving it a better power-to-weight ratio. Will the SF90 Stradale prove to be the Plaid’s nemesis as long as it lives?

Yes - A Volkswagen Golf Can Outgun the Ferrari 488 Pista

There is a catch here, but a stock Volkswagen Golf can outgun a stock Ferrari 488 Pista!

It sounds pretty absurd at the onset that a Volkswagen Golf can beat a Ferrari 488 Pista in a quarter-mile race. But, it actually can… on a technicality. The folks at ‘Driven Media’ pit these two very unlikely contenders in a drag race. It goes without saying that the Italian supercar will win, but is there a way the Golf can get the W? Well, it can if the Ferrari treats it as a standing drag race and the Golf as a rolling race. But, at what speed? Let’s find out.

Both these cars have a seven-speed dual-clutch automatic gearbox and have rear-wheel-drive layouts, and weigh pretty much the same. However, one is a naturally aspirated V-10 and the other a twin-turbo V-8. Which car do you think will take the wins here?

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.
