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.

You Probably Won't Understand This Ferrari 488 Pista Video, But You'll Love It

You Probably Won’t Understand This Ferrari 488 Pista Video, But You’ll Love It

There’s no need to translate fast lap times

The Ferrari 488 Pista was placed on this earth for one reason: to go fast. The scarlet demon is powered by a 3.9-liter biturbo V-8 engine that produces 711 horsepower and 567 pound-feet of torque. It’s capable of sprinting from 0 to 60 mph in only 2.85 seconds on its way to a top speed of 211 mph.

It’s going to take a special kind of supercar to match wits with the Pista, especially when it comes to setting lap times. German auto news outlet Auto Motor Und Sport wanted to find out just how fast the 488 Pista can go on a track, so they brought the Italian supercar to Mendig, a former military airbase in Germany that has been turned into a test track for automakers.

2021 Ferrari F8 Tributo by Novitec

2021 Ferrari F8 Tributo by Novitec

A proper tuning upgrade for a proper supercar

Novitec is the rare tuner that has mastered the art of building subtle tuning programs that aren’t really all that subtle once the package is in place. Whereas other tuners turn on the “wow” factor with obscene aerodynamic upgrades or over-the-top engine modifications — some even combine both — Novitec is perfectly happy providing all-around programs that offer the required improvements without any of the unwanted excess.

Take this new kit for the Ferrari F8 Tributo. You would think that a supercar that already packs a 720-horsepower 3.9-liter twin-turbocharged engine is powerful enough on its own. While that may be true for some, there’s nothing wrong with massaging more power out of that V-8 engine while also providing the right amount of aerodynamic improvements that leads to a more powerful and better handling ride. It takes a tuner with the kind of experience in the game like Novitec has to understand this delicate balancing act. We’ve seen it time and time again from the German tuner, and we’re seeing it now with the Ferrari F8 Tributo.

This futuristic Ferrari looks hotter than any car you can drive in Cyberpunk 2077

Released in December 2020, Cyberpunk 2077 is still the game of the hour in January 2021. And while it’s not the most appealing video game to car enthusiasts, Cyberpunk 2077 is packed with vehicles that range from hypercars to heavy-duty haulers. They’re obviously fictional, but some of them are clearly inspired by real-life vehicles. A Behance artist felt that Cyberpunk 2077 could use a bit of Ferrari in its life and designed the FerRAR.EXE.

The Purosangue Will Be Just The Start of Ferrari’s EV Onslaught

Ferrari is reportedly working on two all-electric SUVs. The first one could arrive in 2024

However, it seems that the Purosangue won’t be Ferrari’s only SUV. A new report claims that Ferrari’s assault on the electric vehicle market will be lead by not one but two crossovers. Maranello’s all-electric haulers are rumored to arrive in 2024 and 2026.

2016 Ferrari GTC4Lusso Sleigh 2.0

2016 Ferrari GTC4Lusso Sleigh 2.0

The ultimate in Christmas present delivery for the one and only

Here at TopSpeed, we’ve got a closely guarded secret, but we’ve finally decided to spill the beans. See, for the last 10 years, we’ve been on Santa’s advisory board and are tasked with helping him plan his annual trip around the world. Usually, we advise him of what new vehicles are best for transporting presents and help him plan out his trip. However, this year, he asked us to kick it up a notch and help him design an all-new sleigh that will not only give Rudolph and the rest of the gang a much-needed rest but will also get him around the world in style and luxury. It took us four months just to decided which model to start out with, but in the end, we developed the GTC4Lusso Sleigh 2.0.

Santa is more than happy with the sleigh we’ve come up with, and it’s already been through extensive testing in preparation for the big day. Based on the 2016 Ferrari GTC4Lusso, you know the big man is traveling in luxuriousness, and he can obviously get there quickly too. But, there’s a lot more than what meets the eye. See; this isn’t your everyday GTC4Lusso – this baby is loaded to the gills with the type of magic that only Santa can make possible. So, this thing carries a considerable amount of power over the standard 6.3-liter V-12 and, despite appearing small, has enough cargo room to haul enough presents to hit half of the world in one trip.

But, before I get too far ahead of myself, Santa’s already hard at work navigating his way to the homes of kids all over the world. So, let’s dive on in a take a look at the GTC4Lusso Sleigh 2.0.

The Ferrari 330 P4 Le Mans Racer is Within Your Budget If Size Doesn't Matter

The Ferrari 330 P4 Le Mans Racer is Within Your Budget If Size Doesn’t Matter

It’s not the car you’re buying, but it’s close enough

The Ferrari 330 P4 stands as one of the most iconic Ferraris of all time. It’s certainly one of the rarest as only one original 330 P4 — chassis 0856 — is said to still exist. Last we heard, it’s owned by a Canadian collector, and if that collector decided to put the car up for sale, it could become the most expensive Ferrari of all time.

Acquiring the only remaining 330 P4 is a pipe dream for almost all of us, but if you’re suffering from a severe case of FOMO, you can still take ownership of a Ferrari 330 P4 courtesy of Amalgam Collection. It’s a lot cheaper, too, at just $1,358, though, I suppose, for a 1:18 scale model, that’s a premium price for the item that you’re buying. Either way, you get to go home with a Ferrari 330 P4. It’s 1/18th the size of the real one, but we’ll take our victories where we can get them.

The Ferrari 812 Superfast Needs a Successor And This CascoRosso Rendering Is It

The Ferrari 812 Superfast Needs a Successor And This CascoRosso Rendering Is It

Ferrari introduced the 812 Superfast in 2017, but its front-engined grand tourer is actually much older than that. Essentially a facelifted version of the F12berlinetta, the design and underpinnings of the current V-12 grand tourer go back to 2012. This makes it eight years old as of 2020, two years more than its predecessor, the 599. In short, it’s time for a full redesign, but it seems Ferrari is not in a hurry to deliver one. But the CascoRosso, a futuristic rendering of a front-engined Ferrari grand tourer, seems like the perfect replacement.

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.
