2022 Ferrari Roma by Mansory

2022 Ferrari Roma by Mansory

No other tuner was able to make the Roma look this good and this aggressive

Ferrari Roma was introduced back in 2019 as a 2+2 grand tourer based on the Portofino. It was placed under the 812 Superfast and was the most affordable Ferrari at the moment. You can imagine this made the Roma a very successful supercar. But, while it can easily stand against models from Porsche or Aston Martin, the Roma is not at all a very powerful supercar. But, thanks to tuners like Mansory, this can be sorted.

2021 Ferrari F8 Spider N-Largo by Novitec

2021 Ferrari F8 Spider N-Largo by Novitec

Making the F8 Spider better by 98 horsepower and five inches

Back in September 2021, Novitec announced its first tuning kit for the Ferrari F8 Spider. Now, after more than a month, the famous tuner finally announced the N-Largo package for the Italian roadster. Of course, the F8 Spider N-Largo looks very similar to the F8 N-Largo - the kit based on the Ferrari F8 Tributo. Just like the kit offered for the coupe version, the F8 Spider N-Largo will be limited to only 15 units.

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).

2021 Ferrari 550 Maranello Short Wheelbase by RML

2021 Ferrari 550 Maranello Short Wheelbase by RML

The Ferrari RML 250 GT SWB may be the ultimate expression of automotive Retro-futurism

Combining modern hardware with a timeless classic shape is a dream for many automotive enthusiasts. Although there are more than a few companies that engage in such activities, very few actually go the extra length to achieve a more vintage driving experience. 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. Some of their work includes the 2014 Infiniti Q50 Eau Rouge prototype (the one powered by the R35 GTR engine) and a road conversion for the track-only Aston Martin Vulcan.

2021 Ferrari SF90 Stradale by Novitec

Novitec’s latest Ferrari obsession is the SF90 Stradale, which comes with an upgraded suspension, new exhaust, and over 1,000 horsepower

Novitec’s love for Ferrari is never-ending. It wasn’t too long ago when the aftermarket company came up with an N-Largo treatment for the F8 Tributo. Within a month, Novitec has launched another model, this time, based on the SF90 Stradale. The Novitec SF90 Stradale nudges the horsepower to just over 1,000 horses while also increasing the torque by almost 50 pound-feet. Apart from this, it also comes with an upgraded exhaust system, a suspension setup, and a more-than-subtle aesthetic makeover. There’s no word on the pricing, though.

2020 Ferrari F8 Tributo by Novitec

German tuner unleashes the beast out of Ferrari’s newest supercar

Just as customers are now receiving their Ferrari F8 Tributos, a new aftermarket program is already available for Maranello’s successor to the 488 GTB. As most have likely guessed correctly, this program comes to us by way of Novitec, the Italian tuner that’s best known for its work on some of Italia’s finest supercars. This new program for the F8 Tributo is a chop off the old block for the German tuner. It’s tricked out with an impressive engine upgrade, a new set of wheels, and improvements to the suspension that should make the F8 more potent on the road and track. The package also comes with an aerodynamic body kit, but as it is with early bird tuning kits, the aforementioned aero kit remains in the oven and will be launched at a later time. Still, it’s hard not to like what Novitec already has on the table for the F8 Tributo. After all, it’s not easy to turn a 700-horsepower supercar into a bonafide spitfire.

2021 Mansory F8XX

Mansory has come up with a hardcore version of the Ferrari F8 Tributo, called the F8XX

Not long ago, Mansory showed us the Ferrari 812-based Mansory Stallone GTS. Now, they brought out a new project, in the form of the

F8

based Mansory F8XX. Mansory are one of the few tuning houses that aren’t afraid to touch some of the most exclusive and expensive vehicles. And although for some, their modifications are not easy on the eyes, they manage to enhance the design without being vulgar. The latest example is their F8XX, which now looks like a vicious track version of the Ferrari F8.

2019 Ferrari 488 Pista Spider

Maranello’s most powerful V-8 car goes topless

The Ferrari 488 Pista Spider joined the 488 lineup at the 2018 Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance as a replacement for the 458 Speciale Aperta. The Ferrari 488 Pista replaced the iconic 458 Speciale, and it’s the first of its kind to hide a turbocharged engine under the hood.

Just when we thought that Ferrari settled for the Aperta name for its convertible sports car, Maranello returned to using the old Spider badge. But this is arguably a small issue here, as the Pista Aperta is just as exciting as its coupe sibling, but with extra headroom when the top is removed. The 50th drop-top model built by Ferrari since 1947, the Pista Spider made its global debut in the United States, where convertible sports cars are more popular than everywhere else in the world. Let’s have a closer look at the latest member of the 488 family in the review below..

2021 Ferrari 308 GTS by Liberty Walk

2021 Ferrari 308 GTS by Liberty Walk

There aren’t any performance enhancements, but Liberty Walk’s skit for the Ferrari 308 sure does look mean!

We can officially call this the “piss-off the purists week” since we quite recently talked about a Ferrari 308 time attack build, featuring a K24 engine swap. Although this 308 still features its original drivetrain, we still think it’s a love it or hate it kind of car. A classic Ferrari is one of the last cars you’d expect someone to modify visually. If you know something about car culture in Japan, you’d know that the more unique-looking your car is, the cooler it is. Because of this, the Japanese company Liberty Walk is not afraid to alter the aesthetics of even the most exquisite cars. This 308 GTB is their latest and probably boldest project.

If the normal Ferrari 812 GTS isn’t crazy enough for you, the 812 GTS Stallone will be

Sometimes having the loudest, craziest-looking, most exclusive cars is not enough. When you want your car to stand out you go to a company like Mansory. The Munich-based luxury and supercar tuner is not afraid to enhance the aesthetics of even the most exclusive and expensive cars. Since the company’s inception in 1989, its portfolio has been featuring some very impressive projects. This one, the Ferrari 812 GTS Stallone, is their latest creation. Here’s what you need to know.

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.

2020 Ferrari 458 Speciale Armored by Add Armor

2020 Ferrari 458 Speciale Armored by Add Armor

No more worrying about being shot at when you’re in your Ferrari 458 Speciale

Your Ferrari deserves a level of protection that, say, your Honda Civic doesn’t. On that end, Ferrari owners may find themselves interested in this Ferrari 458 Speciale that’s been tuned to not only produce more power out of its 4.5-liter turbocharged V-8 engine, but to also carry proper protection in the form of armor. The real kind of armor, too. For a starting price of just $28,000, Add Armor will kit your Ferrari with armor that’s supposedly 10 times stronger than ballistic steel without compromising your Ferrari’s performance capabilities. That’s what you call hitting two birds with one stone, folks.

2021 Ferrari 812 GTO

2021 Ferrari 812 GTO

The 2021 Ferrari 812 GTO is an upcoming version of the 812 Superfast grand tourer. A return of the "GTO" has been rumored since before Ferrari upgraded the F12berlinetta into the 812 Superfast. Ferrari has yet to confirm that such a model is underway, but our paparazzi spotted a slightly modified and camouflaged 812 on the go. With Ferrari set to unveil two new models by the end of 2020, the 812 GTO could become a reality, and the "GTO" badge would return after exactly ten years.

Ferrari Roma by Wheelsandmore

Ferrari Roma by Wheelsandmore

German tuner takes a stab at Maranello’s latest performance-spec grand tourer

Proving yet again that it works faster than a lot of aftermarket companies in the business, Wheelsandmore has officially unveiled its new program for Ferrari’s latest exotic model, the Roma. The expediency by which the German tuner works is known far and wide in tuning circles, and it’s no surprise that the subject of Wheelsandmore’s latest aftermarket program also happens to be a super grand tourer that was only presented to the world last November. The Roma is Ferrari’s latest super grand tourer, slotted neatly between the Portofino and the F8 Tributo in Maranello’s current model range. It’s arguably Ferrari’s most beautifully designed model in its current lineup. In other words, it’s the perfect muse for Wheelsandmore’s newest tuning program, and, in typical Wheelsandmore fashion, we see all of it in this new program for Ferrari’s latest galloping stallion.

2020 Ferrari 812 GTS

The front-engined, V-12 convertible GT returns after 50 years

The Ferrari 812 GTS is the convertible version of the 812 Superfast, the grand tourer that replaced the F12berlinetta in 2017. Ferrari’s range-topping drop-top as of 2019, the 812 GTS is also the company’s first production, front-engined, V-12 convertible since 1969. After 20 years of limited edition grand tourers with infinite headroom, Ferrari finally caved in a build a production-ready, drop-top grand tourer.

Besides the "GTS" badge and the minor changes above the waistline, this drop-top is pretty much identical to the 812 Superfast. It has the same 6.5-liter V-12 engine under the hood and comes with almost 800 horsepower on tap. It needs less than three seconds to hit 60 mph from a standing start and tops out at more than 200 mph. All told, it’s one of the most potent grand tourers on the market and a turning point for Ferrari, which just released its first full-production convertible GT in 50 years. Find out more about that in the review below.

The Mid-Engine Ferrari V-6 Hybrid Is A Whole New Car That Slots Below The F8 Tributo But Could Be Faster

Announced at the 2019 Geneva Motor Show, the new Ferrari V-6 hybrid is ready for introduction this summer. Expected in a mid-engine form, the Ferrari with a hybridized V-6 propulsion system will probably slot below the F8 Tributo and ride on a modular platform that will underpin at least one more Ferrari supercar in the future. Maybe the one with the V-8 hybrid system.

Chief Technical Officer Michael Leiters presented Ferrari’s product strategy back in September in 2018 and announced the new Ferrari V-6 family:

"We will develop a totally new V6 family based on a very, very particular, innovative architecture with plenty of innovations regarding technologies and components."
We spied the Ferrari V-6 hybrid in prototype form in Sweden and Germany. Our spy photographers heard V-6 sounds while some videos, filmed in Maranello before that, apparently show the Ferrari V-6 hybrid running on electric power only. Even though this may be the case for the prototype, I doubt that the Ferrari V-6 mid-engine supercar will have an only-electric drive mode. However, Ferrari marketing head, Enrico Galleria reported some time ago that the Ferrari hybrid GT cars will probably have a Plug-In Hybrid technology. The Purosangue SUV as well!

Now, we have our first look at the first Ferrari Hybrid V-6 as it was doing some cold-weather testing.

Update 5/29/2019:Ferrari has just debuted the all-new SF90 Stradale, a V-8, hybrid supercar that is already stealing a lot of thunder from the Ferrari LaFerrari. Check out our special gallery below to get your first look while we update this review!

2018 Ferrari Monza SP2

2018 Ferrari Monza SP2

It’s the Ferrari 812 with classic styling and seating for two

Ferrari’s shock launch of two brand-new super cars, the Monza SP1 and SP2 put everyone under the pressure of a choice: to go or not go solo. The SP2 is the Barchetta that encourages you to be friendly and take someone with you for the passenger ride of a lifetime aboard the fastest non-hybrid Prancing Horse ever – with no windshield!

The Icona line of special, limited run cars is off to a scorching start with two new beauties dubbed the SP1 and the SP2 Monza. The name isn’t new; instead, just like the cars, it draws from Ferrari’s long and storied racing heritage. The Monza was one of Ferrari’s Barchetta-style sports racing cars from the ‘50s which had its successes on the track but faded into obscurity in the decades that followed. It’s nice to see Ferrari bringing back this nameplate, especially on such eye-wateringly beautiful cars.

It’s good to know that the Icona program is set to run for at least four years, so we’re certain we’ll see more amazing products coming their way considering Louis Camilleri assertion that Ferrari looks to debut up to 15 new cars in the following years. The scope is to increase the sales to $5,000,000,000 by 2022 which would be a 68% increase from the figure registered at the end of last year.

While we’re almost sure that some of those sales will come off of the launch of Ferrari’s much-rumored SUVs, we’ve got to live in the moment and enjoy the Monza SP1 and SP2 for what they are: Ferrari’s fastest non-hybrid cars. The fact that they follow the old norm of a front-mounted V-12 sending the power to the back wheels is just the cream atop an amazing pie.
