2019 Ferrari 488 Pista Spider
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
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.
Niels van Roij is not a name that pops up too often on our news feeds. But when it does, a splash is almost guaranteed. You might also remember the name from builds such as the Model S Shooting Brake and the Ferrari-based Breadvan Hommage. We are telling you all this because van Roij is back at it with another Prancing Horse-based project. Enter the Daytona Shooting Brake.
This Ferrari 308 Build Would Make Enzo Turn Over in His Grave
There are a couple of things in the automotive world that are considered taboo. Although you can see plenty of crazy ideas out there, this one is on a whole other level. If you are a Ferrari fan, a purist, or have a faint heart, switch the channel now. In case you are curious as well as one of the aforementioned, do so at your own risk.
2021 Ferrari 812 GTS Stallone by Mansory
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.
The Brawler MHC 001 - A Ferrari 308 With An Apocalyptic Twist
Creativity is awesome, especially when you can express it and share it with others. This is exactly what an independent designer that goes by Colorspunge did. What you are looking at is a sinister rendering of a 1975 Ferrari 308 GTB. Although it’s not the first time we see awesome renderings, this is one of those more memorable ones. Yes, we say that about a lot of things, but there’s actually more to this rendering than you see at first glance.
The Hybrid Ferrari, AKA The Ferrari 486, Could Deliver 700 Horsepower!
Rumors abound surrounding Ferrari’s new hybrid offering, codenamed the F171. The latest comes by way of Car Magazine, which claims through an unconfirmed report that the new V-6-powered hybrid Ferrari will have a combined output approaching 700 horsepower, including 110 horsepower coming from the electric motor. The new hybrid supercar is also rumored to be called the Ferrari 486.
The 10 Best Ferraris Of All Time
Picking the ten best Ferraris of all time is not an easy exercise, but somebody had to do it. Sports cars don’t come finer than those with a Prancing Horse badge, and in the 70 years that it has been around, Ferrari has built some of the finest and most desirable performance cars in the history of the industry. A lot of Ferrari models have climbed the ladder to iconic status, and even some of today’s models are on their way there, too. It took a lot of work — and arguments — but we managed to narrow down our choices for the ten best Ferraris of all time.
Ferrari’s One-Off Creations is A List of the Most Desirable Prancing Horses of All Time
Back in 2008, Ferrari launched its One-Off personalization program to a lot of fanfare at that year’s Geneva Motor Show. The goal was to give Maranello’s most important clients the opportunity to create their own Ferraris. It’s been over a decade since that announcement, and it’s safe to say that Ferrari’s program has become a resounding success. Every year, a number of one-off Ferraris enter our lives, commissioned by an individual who Ferrari deems as one of its VIPs. Models like the 2012 Ferrari SP Arya, 2014 Ferrari SP FFX, and 2018 Ferrari SP38 Deborah have been built. Each of these one-offs is unique from every other Ferrari in existence, largely because they came to life as a result of someone’s vision for his or her perfect Ferrari. The 2019 Ferrari P80/C is the latest one-off Ferrari to arrive, but given the success Ferrari has had with the program and the growing demand among customers to get their own “1of1s” — there’s a five-year waitlist, in case you qualify — the P80/C won’t be the last one-off Ferrari in the world. On the contrary, this first ten years of the whole program could be just the beginning of what will most likely turn into one of Ferrari’s most successful customer-centric programs in its long and illustrious history. In case you haven’t paid attention over the last ten years, check out some of the most memorable one-off models that Ferrari has created.
2020 Ferrari Roma
The 2020 Ferrari Roma is a front-engined, 2+2 grand tourer based on the Portofino. Powered by a 3.9-liter V-8 engine, the 2020 Roma slots under the 812 Superfast and it’s the company most affordable vehicle as of 2021. Its exterior design is inspired by Ferrari 250 models from the 1960s and focused on understated elegance rather than aggressiveness. The 2020 Roma is aimed at Aston Martin and Porsche buyers and the Italian firm estimates that 70 percent of clients will be first-time Ferrari customers. Is the 2020 Roma a solid competitor for the likes of the Aston Martin DB11? Let’s find out in the review below.
Novitec’s Exhaust System Makes The Ferrari 812 GTS Sound Obtrusively Mean
The Ferrari 812 Superfast, introduced in 2017 as a replacement for the F12berlinetta, is without doubt one of the sexiest grand tourers on the market today. And while most competitors pack turbocharged engines, Ferrari remained loyal to the mighty, naturally aspirated V-12. Some say that the 812 Superfast is the perfect modern grand tourer as far as links to iconic models like the 250 GTO go, but YouTube’s Mr JWW seems to think that the Italian GT can be improved. How? By pairing the open-top layout of the GTS with a Novitec exhaust system.
Living With The Ferrari Roma On a Daily Basis? It MIght Not Be As Good As You Think
In 2020 Ferrari added a third grand tourer to its lineup, the Roma. Slotted below the V-12-powered 812 Superfast, the Roma features a 3.9-liter V-8, just like the Portofino, but unlike the latter, it’s a coupe. Thanks to a new design language, the Roma is one of the prettiest modern Ferraris out there. But is it a performance grand tourer that you can live with on a daily basis? YouTube’s Harry’s Garage took one for a long spin to find out just that.
This Ferrari Showdown Will Get You Stoked For The Weekend
If you’re a fan of high-revving Ferrari sports cars (yes, I know, who isn’t?!), the folks over at Top Gear just released a compilation of Chris Harris driving four of the brand’s most exciting models. Featuring the classic 250 GT TDF, the insanely fast FXX-K, and two more modern Ferraris in between, this 12-minute Maranello showdown will get you all hyped up.
2021 Ferrari F8 Tributo by Novitec
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
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.
