The economic crisis in the Eurozone has seen Ferrari’s sales in countries like Italy and Spain plummet, and Greece managed just one sale in 2012 (and even that came to the UK). But Ferrari have a plan to keep profitability by limiting supply and achieving stronger revenues for the sales they do make – with stuff [...]
If it wasn’t obscene enough to go off-roading in a Rolls-Royce Phantom or rally driving a Ferrari Enzo, the Tax The Rich crew has gotten its hands on a pair of ultra-rare Ferrari F50 models to perform a tug-of-war battle, which we usually see reserved for pickup trucks. Only 349 F50s were ever built, but this video pits two of them against each [...]
In the last 24 hours we entered a new golden age of unreal supercars, ushered in by the McLaren P1, Porsche 918 Spyder, and Ferrari LaFerrari. They are all their own unique interpretations of the ethos of each brand. But they all have one thing in common: They’re all hybrids.
Are your friends giving you crap for liking LaFerrari, the ridiculously-named hybrid hypercar from Modena? Show them the gif below and it should put their mind right. Yes, while Ferrari’s marketing department yammers on about F1 tech this and hybrid that and saying nonsense about aerodynamics being the only justification for any styling trait in the entire car world or whatever, [...]
Join us for a moment in putting on our way-back hats, zeroing in on the late 1980s. Imagine that you’re in your bedroom. Look over at the wall across from your bed.
Next stop on the eGarage video tour is Richard Griot, eponymous founder of Griot’s Garage. His company makes car care products and sells all manner of accessories for the “garage lifestyle,” and the company motto is “Have fun in your garage.” That can’t be a hard thing to do judging by what’s in Griot’s own workspace, with a Ferrari Formula [...]
Welcome to Sunday Matinee, where we highlight classic car reviews or other longer videos I find on YouTube. Kick back and enjoy this blast from the past. Last weekend, I had the very good fortune of attending the ribbon cutting ceremony at Austin’s Formula One track, the Circuit of the Americas.
Within the coral-colored brick walls of Ferrari’s Maranello operations, a new supercar is starting to roll off the line. The replacement for the 599GTB Fiorano and its numerous offshoots, the new F12berlinetta will be Ferrari’s most expensive, quickest, and most powerful model when it goes on sale in the U.S. early next year at an estimated price of [...]
We’ve heard it many times before and today we’re hearing it again, Ferrari’s Chairman Luca di Montezemolo says that the company has no plans to file an IPO. However, the boss did say that the Italian supercar maker plans to increase profit this year.
Ferrari have kept their cards close to their chest regarding the successor to the legendary Ferrari Enzo. Rumors have been flying around the webosphere for years, however, today we finally have first spy photos of a prototype test mule taken in Germany close to a high speed secret track.
Roll back the clock to the early sixties and the world was embroiled in a genuine car rivalry. Well, maybe “world” and “embroiled” are a little extreme, but good old boy Carol Shelby and his band of hoons were growing increasingly problematic for Enzo Ferrari. Yes, that Enzo Ferrari. As in, the man, the myth [...]
The hairy-chested wrenches at Ferrari rolled out the 2010 458 Italia at Frankfurt – an event I note on the same level of significance as asteroid impacts on Jupiter. Cool, sure, but the effects on my day-to-day existence are negligible at best. Yes, there’s a 570 horsepower V8 mounted mid-ship and a scalpel-precise DSG. And [...]
As the Goodwood festival of speed approaches, manufacturers are beginning to tempt us with the kind of toys they plan to bring to the party. Porsche has announced its bringing along a handful of 917s to play with, and some of the cars legendary pilots like Richard Attwood, Brian Redman and David piper will be [...]
When news first popped up that delicious 1957 Ferrari 250 Testa Rossa was hitting the auction block, no one figured it’d go for cheap. At the same time, I don’t think anyone was expecting it to fetch $12 million, either. Well, to be fair, it actually sold for 9,020,000 Euros, making it the most expensive [...]
I. Ferrari will auction off the very last F430 on Sunday to benefit the victims of the earthquake that devastated the Abruzzo region of Italy. The car comes sporting the traditional colors of Aquila, the city hit hardest by the quake. The last F430 won’t roll off the assembly line until the end of the [...]
I. Popular Mechanics tested a perforated vinyl vehicle wrap that’s supposed to improve gas mileage. The fuel economy miracle cure is called Fastskinz and employs hundreds of five millimeter-diameter holes to improve airflow. What’d they find out? It doesn’t work. [Autoblog]
Jenson Button led Rubens Barrichello to another Brawn GP 1-2 at Saturday’s Grand Prix de Catalunya in Barcelona, Spain. Saturday’s race also marked the fifth race this season, and closed the first third of what has been a thrilling year in F1. Between the dominance of the Brawns and Red Bulls, the rulings on Brawn’s [...]
