PostHeaderIcon Ferrari 458 Speciale A

Ferrari unveiled the 458 Italia in 2010, then followed that up with the more precise and track-ready 458 Speciale in 2014. As is the tradition with all modern mid-engined Ferraris, Maranello creates a great car, then a year or two later it chops the top off of it to create a roadster version. We knew it was coming, but now the convertible version of the Ferrari 458 Speciale is here, and it’s calling it the “A.”

It may be a silly name, but that A stands for Aperta, the Italian word for open. This is also more than a simple roofless version of the 458 Speciale; the Speciale A features the most powerful naturally aspirated V-8 the company has ever used in a spider. Compared to the old 458 Spider, this new machine is faster and more powerful, and Ferrari was even able to keep the weight down. This new car only weighs 50 kg (110 pounds) more than its hard-top sibling.

If you want one, you need to get your order in yesterday. Ferrari is limiting this new car to just 499 units. We don’t know how many of those are slated for U.S. consumption, but rest assured it won’t be a lot. If you are undecided about taking home one of these beauties, hit that jump and read our full overview of this incredible new Italian convertible.

Updated 08/18/2017: We added a series of new images taken during the 2017 Monterey Car Week.

PostHeaderIcon Ferrari F12tdf

Although the majority of Ferraris built over the last four decades have featured a mid-engine layout, there was a time when all of Maranello’s products were front-engined. Until the mid-1960s, Enzo Ferrari felt that a mid-engine Ferrari would be unsafe in the hands of customers. That changed in 1966, when Enzo, having seen the stir Lamborghini created with the 1966-1974 Lamborghini Miura, approved the V-6-powered 1967-1980 Ferrari Dino for production. Although mid-engined supercars became increasingly popular through the 1970s, Ferrari continued to build front-engined cars into the 21st century, with the current lineup including the 2013 Ferrari F12berlinetta, 2012 Ferrari FF, and 2015 Ferrari California T.

The F12berlinetta, a full-fledged grand tourer, harkens back to the 1968-1973 Ferrari 365 GTB/4 “Daytona” of the late 1960s, and in many way to the iconic 1964-1966 Ferrari 275 GTB and 1962-1964 Ferrari 250 GTO. Much like its predecessors, it spawned various one-off and special-edition models, including the 2014 Ferrari F12 TRS, 2015 Ferrari SP America, 2015 Ferrari F60 America, and the 2015 Carrozzeria Touring Berlinetta Lusso. Now, Ferrari injected more power into the F12berlinetta to create the F12tdf, a tribute to the legendary Tour de France automobile race, an event Maranello dominated from 1956 through 1964.

Originally rumored to wear a “Speciale” badge, the F12tdf is more than just a tribute car with added grunt. The F12berlinetta shell has been redesigned for improved downforce and weight has been reduce by means of extensive carbon-fiber and aluminum use. Additionally, the Italians used new state-of-the-art tech to make the F12tdf one of the quickest Ferraris out there. Find out more below.

Updated 08/17/2017: We added a series on new images and a video taken during the 2017 Monterey Car Week.

PostHeaderIcon Pops’ Rants: The Tesla Model 3 Isn’t That Affordable; Toyota Supra Without a Manual? Yikes!

If you’ve been reading my rants, you probably know I’m a big fan of the manual transmission, and I hate almost everything with an automatic. Yeah, I’m the guy who went as far as to say that the Dodge Challenger Demon sucks because it doesn’t have a stick and a clutch. Well, bring out the tar and the feathers because I have a big announcement to make: the next-generation Supra will suck too! Why? Well, some leaked documents say that the all three drivetrains fitted in the upcoming model will have automatic transmissions only.

And, here’s the thing. While you might argue that the Challenger Demon needs an automatic to achieve all that amazing performance at the drag strip, the new Supra wasn’t designed to win NHRA races. It’s a freakin’ sports car in which you’re supposed to have fun. And, the best fun can only come by way of a proper shift stick and three pedals. Seriously now, this automotive evolution is ruining a lot of cars, and the Supra is probably the biggest one yet. Stop chasing profits only and give people what they want. Man, it’s so long since I last yelled “shut up and take my money!” toward a carmaker. And this is just the tip of the iceberg this week…

PostHeaderIcon Ferrari Still Hesitant On Bringing Dino Name Back

I guess we shouldn’t be surprised why Ferrari lost the “Testarossa” name after all. In somewhat similar circumstances, the Italian automaker has another nameplate that it hasn’t used for quite some time, and the internal debate on possibly bringing said name back shows that not everyone in Ferrari is keen on using past names, no matter how popular or nostalgic they may be. I am, of course, referring to the “Dino,” which has been in numerous rumors in recent years for one reason or another, including the thought of bringing the name back for an entry-level model that will slot below the California T.

It’s worth noting though that rumors about a Dino revival have been going on for the better part of the last decade. These aren’t new whispers we’re hearing because the return of the Dino nameplate has been bubbling in the surface of rumor mills since 2008 when it was believed that the model would make its debut at the Geneva Motor Show, and then later at the Frankfurt Motor Show. Nothing came out of it, and subsequent rumors in 2012 and 2015 amounted to nada either. Fast forward to 2017 and there’s still a lot of debate about what to do with the name. Ferrari CEO Sergio Marchionne isn’t too keen on the idea of seeing a “new” Dino because he believes it might have a negative impact on the brand’s image. His sentiments are reportedly echoed by some within Maranello, but there are also others who are in favor of dusting off the name because of its nostalgic ties to Ferrari. Either way, a decision is expected to come when Ferrari lays out its next five-year plan, which could take place in the first quarter of 2018.

PostHeaderIcon Ferrari 70th Anniversary Event Reaches Edinburgh

ferrari 70th edinburgh

As you may know by now, Ferrari 70th Anniversary celebration has become this huge global party with owners and fans around the world forming their own groups and rallies and meetings to mark the occasion. The latest of these celebratory meetings took place in Edinburgh, Scotland. 

In an uncharacteristically bright and warm sunny day in Edinburgh over 70 Ferraris gathered in Holyrood Park, Broad Pavement, Queens Drive to mark Ferrari 70th anniversary by admiring the aesthetics of these amazing machines and joy riding them while reflecting on what makes these cars so special. There were some unique treats as well, such as a specially created tricolore pizza and homemade ice cream, and some unusual activities like vigorous flag waving to the sound Italian anthem!

Following the meet and greet there was a parade headed by the LaFerrari Aperta which led the convoy past the Scottish Parliament, Holyrood Palace and the Royal Mile. Thousands of spectators came to watch the parade, but only the Ferrari owners got to top off the evening with a sumptuous Italian food and Italian inspired entertainment which included a special display of the the 812superfast. Other notable cars present at the event included LaFerrari, F12tdf, Dino and the 328 GTB that was featured in Magnum PI.

PostHeaderIcon Ferrari Loses Its Rights On Testarossa Name

The Ferrari Testarossa is arguably one of the most popular Ferrari models of all time. From a personal standpoint, it’s the model that first introduced me to the Prancing Horse and it’s the same model that occupied real estate space in my bedroom wall. It’s for that reason why I’m sharing this news with a heavy heart. As synonymous as the “Testarossa” name is to Ferrari, that won’t be the case moving forward after the Italian automaker lost the rights to the name. Picking up the famed name is a German toy company that builds bicycles, remote-controlled toys, and apparently, the occasional electric shaver or two.

The legal battle between Ferrari and Autec AG ultimately sided on the latter after a Dusseldorf court decided that the Prancing Horse hasn’t used the “Testarossa” name enough over the past 20 years to prevent the German toy maker to use it for its own purpose. Ferrari did argue that it continues maintenance work on the car and that should be enough for the company to keep the rights to the name. The German court didn’t it see it that way, though, so unless Ferrari appeals to a higher court in Germany (called the Oberlandesgericht) it’s looking like we’re going to need to come to terms with the realization that the Testarossa name won’t be used on a Ferrari in the foreseeable future.

PostHeaderIcon Watch a $7 million dollar LaFerrari used as lawnmover

I don’t claim to be an expert in the driving habits of other people, but I do think that I’m speaking for a good segment of the population when I say that owning a Ferrari LaFerrari Aperta comes with it a number of important responsibilities. Taking good care of the rare supercar is obviously priority number one. Driving it responsibly is also important to remember when you have a car as fast, powerful, and expensive as this one. Driving it over a freshly mowed lawn, though? I don’t think the LaFerrari Aperta is meant to be driven on that surface, but who am I to tell one owner of the hypercar where he can drive his prized exotic.

His actions do make for an entertaining four-minute video, that much I’ll give him. Not only does he decide to pay no mind to the manicured lawn at the Heveningham Concours d’Elegance in Suffolk, England, he even goes so far as to drift on it, do short acceleration bursts, and perform donuts, much to the delight of the crowd who were there to see the spectacle. I will admit that if I was there, I’d probably be cheering with the rest of the people, but seeing it in video form does make me wonder if the owner is merely showboating or has very little regard for his super expensive Ferrari. I’d like to think that it’s the former, but if I wouldn’t be surprised if it’s a combination of the two.

PostHeaderIcon Ferrari SUV to Arrive in 2020

Rumors of Ferrari planning to build an SUV have been flying around for more than a decade now, and the general consensus is that a utility Prancing Horse is no longer a matter of “if,” but “when.” And that time is getting closer, with new reports from people familiar with the company’s plans claiming that the Ferrari SUV will get the green light by the end of 2018. Specifically, Sergio Marchionne wants to devise a new five-year plan for the brand until he retires in 2021 and the new strategy will include a four-seat “utility vehicle.

According to Bloomberg, Ferrari finally wants to move beyond its traditional supercar niche in an effort to double profits by 2022. Sounds like the kind of strategy we’ve seen from most automakers, including Maserati and Alfa Romeo, lately, right? Yes, but for Ferrari, things are a bit more complex. Adding an SUV means that the self-imposed limit of 10,000 vehicles produced per year will be exceeded and push Ferrari beyond its small vehicle maker status that protects it from some of the more severe fuel and emission rules. In return, Maranello will have to roll out more hybrids in order to keep its carbon footprint down.

PostHeaderIcon Gaze Upon The Shiniest LaFerrari Aperta In An Incredible Garage: Video

In 2013, Maranello dropped the LaFerrari as Italy’s bid in the hybrid hypercar segment, taking on such heavy hitters as the McLaren P1 and Porsche 918 Spyder for top-dollar electrified performance glory. But something was missing, specifically unlimited headroom and a healthy dose of blue sky. Enter the even-more-exclusive LaFerrari Aperta. All told, the Aperta is quite the machine, and definitely worthy of your lust and admiration, especially when on display in a garage like this.

Hit play, and this 3-minute, 11-second video will take you through one of the more interesting garages we’ve seen in quite some time. It looks closer to a mansion’s library than the traditionally anti-septic parking spots we’re used to seeing such machines occupy, with wood floors and cabinets and carved statues of lions, not to mention plenty of prancing horses on the walls. However, rather than antique furniture, the floor itself is packed with sports cars, including standouts like the Dodge Viper, Ferrari 599,Porsche 911 R, and Dodge Hellcat. However, without a doubt, the crown jewel is the LaFerrari Aperta, set on a rotating base to display every angle and cut to drooling onlookers. The video includes lovely high-def shots of the Aperta, taken while a team of auto detailers lovingly buff and shine the various panels to a gleaming finish, all set to an epic soundtrack. There’s no engine noises or driving action, but if you like lusting after gorgeous exotics, this video is a guaranteed winner.

PostHeaderIcon Ferrari P3 Hypercar Rendered as Valkyrie Rival

ferrari-p3-hypercar

We are currently living the age of hybrid hypercars and it’s been fairly exciting, what with the rivalry between the LaFerrari, McLaren P1 and Porsche 918. But already it seems the tide is shifting towards crazier, more technologically sophisticated machines such as Mercedes AMG Project One and Aston Martin Valkyrie. So an independent designer decided to speculate what Ferrari’s answer to all this would be like.

And here’s what he came up with, Ferrari P3 which is a futuristic hypercar designed with inspirations from the aforementioned products. Now, this might seem like a pretty outlandish idea, and it is frankly, but something like this has a much greater chance of actually happening that may realize. See, if indeed this is where the hypercar game is headed, and all the evidence suggest that might be the case, Ferrari cannot just sit back and watch other brands runaway with the market. They are going to have to react, and that reaction could look a helluva lot like what you are seeing here.

What we can’t imagine is what sort of powertrain a Ferrari hypercar of this caliber would use. Of course we know that that electrically-boosted V12 in the LaFerrari has still more potential than its current 1,000 horsepower output, but it is just not in the same league as the F1-derived powertrain in the AMG One. What’s more, we don’t yet know what Porsche might have in store should they decide to join this high-roller club. Traditionally, what Porsche brings to the table makes all the other offerings look like they belong to the previous century.

So yes, it’s only getting more exciting, this hypercar game!

PostHeaderIcon Ferrari Employees Are Apparently Not Allowed To Own Ferraris

Just in case it wasn’t clear before, it certainly is now. Ferraris are some of the most sought-after cars in the business today. In fact, employees of Maranello typically aren’t allowed to have their own brand-new Ferraris. The only exception? Formula One drivers, and even they have to pay the full freight costs for their cars. That’s the gospel according to Chief Marketing and Commercial Officer Enrico Galliera, who is often referred to within Maranello as the notorious “Dr. No.”

Galliera’s job with Ferrari is a complicated one that involves numerous roles. But what he’s famously known for is his distinction of being the man who decides which person deserves to own a limited-edition Ferrari. In his conversation with Drive, Galliera explained that certain aspects of his job are made difficult by the fact that not everybody can own a Ferrari model even if these people deserve it. “We have much higher demand than the availability,” he explained. “What we do is identify criteria that is rewarding good customers. The limited edition cars we consider a gift to our best customers.” Indeed, these so-called “gifts” come in the form of low-volume supercars that Ferrari clients are more than likely to fight for. The most recent example is the LaFerrari Aperta, the convertible version of the LaFerrari hypercar. Galliera said the most difficult part of is job is rejecting established Ferrari customers, some of whom have been loyal fans of the brand. That tells you how strict Galliera and Ferrari are considering that Lee already has more than a dozen Ferraris to his name, including four new ones he ordered just to improve his rating with the company.

PostHeaderIcon RM Sotheby’s Will Offer a Stunning Collection of Ferraris in Monterey This Year

Every year, as the summer slowly fades to fall, Monterey, California is inundated by top-dollar four-wheeled machinery. It’s called Monterey Car Week, and in addition to classic racing at Laguna Seca and world-class show and shine at the Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance, this annual auto orgy also plays host to numerous high-end collector car auctions. One of the best is put on by RM Sotheby’s, which just announced it would offer up a lineup of no less than 13 of some of the most desirable Ferraris on the planet.

It makes sense to bring these machines to Monterey. After all, this is the town where in 2014, a 1962 Ferrari 250 GTO sold for a whopping $38 million to become the most expensive car ever sold at public auction. Celebrities rub shoulders with collectors and well-heeled enthusiasts in a nearly endless sea of pricey metal, and counter-bids are in increments big enough to buy a house. It’s the perfect place for a spread like this, which spans a full half-century of Ferrari’s greatest hits. Upping the excitement, most models are offered without reserve, and all but two are painted a searing shade of Rosso Corsa red. The heavy hitter of the bunch is a silver 1961 250 GT SWB Berlinetta by Scaglietti, which is expected to change hands for somewhere between $8.5 and $10 million.

PostHeaderIcon Drivetribe Reviews The Ferrari 812 Superfast: Video

The Ferrari 812 Superfast is the Prancing Horse’s latest Grand Tourer berlinetta, offering a front-mid-engine, RWD layout, sharp and modern styling, and a sonorous 12-cylinder soundtrack. It’s an amalgamation of new and old, bringing loads of cutting-edge go-fast technology, but with the heart of soul of a true Maranello machine. On paper, it looks impressive, but how do all those numbers translate onto the road? To find out, Drivetribe’s Jethro Bovingdon took one out onto the winding switchbacks of some Italian back road and gave it a boot full in this eight minute, 20 second video.

The result, as you might expect, is quite good. Bovingdon seems enthralled behind the wheel, praising the 812 Superfast in a pleasing British lilt. The big take away is just how easy the Ferrari is to drive, offering loads of grip and a surprising amount of control. “Compared to an F12 tdf… it’s a bit of a pussycat,” Bovingdon comments, later adding, “There’s so much more control than the F12, and you simply trust it so much more than the spikey, all-around evil tdf.” The whole video touts Drivetribe’s typical high production value, and is a real joy to watch. Bovingdon puts the hammer down without mercy, sliding the high-dollar Ferrari on real-world roads and showboating in ass-out, smoke-up drifts. Read on for further details, or just hit play and watch it for yourself.

PostHeaderIcon Ferrari LaFerrari Successor

Blasphemy. That’s probably the first thought of any purist considering the creation of an all-electric Ferrari. Blasphemy and sacrilege. FCA head Sergio Marchionne would agree. In 2016, at the Geneva International Auto Show, the CEO remarked that the idea of an all-electric Ferrari was “an almost obscene concept.” Later that year, at the Paris Auto Show, Ferrari’s Chief Technical Officer, Michael Leiters, echoed Marchionne’s sentiment, albeit in slightly softer terms. “We would not follow to develop a fully electric car,” Leiters said, adding, “We are convinced that it’s right to have a hybrid car because, for us, the sound is a very crucially important characteristic of a Ferrari, and our customers want to have this.” Fair enough. Thing is, even a flat-out rejection isn’t enough to stop a possible EV Ferrari. Let me explain.

First off, the sound. The howl of internal combustion is as important to the Ferrari brand as red paint, and we get that. This is a company lives and dies by its engines. The thing is Ferrari is already testing the waters – turbocharged models have been around for decades now, and electrification is integral to the performance of the “ultimate” LaFerrari hypercar. What’s more, Sergio Marchionne has already discussed the possibility of entering Formula E. Throw in continued EV development from competitors like Porsche and McLaren, and relevancy starts to become an issue. Finally, there’s that old Enzo Ferrari quote: “Aerodynamics are for people who can’t build engines.” The point is this – never say never.

PostHeaderIcon Gasp! Is Ferrari Finally Getting On Board The SUV Bandwagon?

Don’t look now, but it appears that hell is indeed freezing over. One of the last automakers to resist the allure of SUVs is reportedly on the brink of jumping in, and wouldn’t you know it, that automaker is Ferrari. The suggestion itself is enough to make automotive talking heads explode, but a recent report from Car Magazine is suggesting that Ferrari is actually well past the point of “considering” an SUV; it’s already in the active project phase and it even has its own codename: F16X.

The full scope of details surrounding the rumored Ferrari SUV haven’t yet been announced, but the same report from Car Magazine is saying the model will take the shape of a high-riding, five-door coupe and will be developed together with the successor of the Ferrari GTC4, which itself is scheduled to be replaced in 2020. Among the bits of sourced information revealed by the report include the likelihood that the model will use an aluminum architecture and will also feature suicide doors and an all-wheel drive system. It’s also thought of that the F16X will also make use of either a V-8 engine or a hybrid powertrain. Should it end up with the latter, it would become the first hybrid car in Maranello’s history that’s not named LaFerrari. The timetable for the model’s release is still unclear, although there’s a strong possibility that we won’t see it arrive either in concept or production form anytime soon. If it does come to pass and Ferrari green-lights a production version, look for the SUV to attract a price in the vicinity of €300,000, or just a little under $350,000.

PostHeaderIcon Chris Harris Drives The LaFerrari FXX K, Goes A Bit Mad: Video

The LaFerrari is a massively impressive automobile. This thing is supreme hypercar royalty, boasting the absolute bleeding edge in go-fast technology. The Prancing Horse pulled no punches when it went about creating this one, and yet, Maranello felt there was still something more left on the table. Strip away any and all conciliations to road-going civility, add even more power, increase the downforce, and lighten the curb weight, and what you’re left with is this – the LaFerrari FXX K. Offered as the latest product in Ferrari’s XX customer racing program, of which the FXX and 599XX are also a part, the LaFerrari FXX K is about as brutal as they come when talking about a product from Maranello that doesn’t compete in Formula 1. And that makes it a fantastic fit for Internet superstar and new Top Gear co-host Chris Harris, who recently got a chance to pilot the mad machine at Daytona.

You might remember Harris’ stint in the LaFerrari FXX K from the first episode of the 24th season of the popular British motoring show, but luckily, this 7-minute video includes additional unaired footage of the experience for your viewing enjoyment. In addition, there’s plenty of footage of the red speed-maker tearing it up on track, complete with the howl of the Italian V-12 and Harris’ excited commentary.

PostHeaderIcon James May Shows Us A Different Way To Do A Walk-Around Video

By now, you’ve probably seen your share of walk-around videos featuring beautiful concepts, insane exotics, and timeless classics. The set-up typically involves a lot of narration, some funky background music, and plenty of glam shots of the car from every conceivable angle. It’s a tried-and-tested method that has given birth to some pretty awesome videos, but ever the contrarian, The Grand Tour’s James May has provided us with a different sort of walk-around video from what we’re used to. Instead of infusing the video with pageantry, he simply walks around the car. Who knew!

The video in question is posted on Drivetribe’s Facebook page and it features May and a Ferrari 308 GTB that he reportedly bought earlier this year. There’s only one camera involved in the video and absolutely no background music to spice it up. What we do see is May leisurely walking around his new Ferrari acquisition, stopping a few times to look closer at certain sections of the car, before completing his literal walk-around. Then he looks at the camera, flashes that unmistakable James May face of approval, and walks off. No commentary. No music (apart from the intro and conclusion). No nothing. It’s definitely a different approach from what we’re used to, but May somehow makes it look authentic and meaningful at the same time. Who knew that Captain Slow could say a thousand words without having to open his mouth.

PostHeaderIcon Goodwood Festival Of Speed Pays Tribute To Seven Decades Of Maranello’s Finest

The Goodwood Festival of Speed is always one of the best events to go to when you’re in the mood to bask in the rich history of the automotive industry. Classic and modern cars alike are a common spectacle at the event. This year, the Festival of Speed is turning its sights to honoring a certain Italian automaker, who just happens to be celebrating its 70th anniversary this year. So, if any of you happen to be going, be on the lookout for 70 of the finest Ferraris in history, all of which will be on display to honor the Prancing Horse’s 70th birthday.

Competition cars. Single-seaters. Classics. Modern supercars. Pretty much every kind of car Ferrari has built in the last seven decades will make an appearance at Lord March’s estate over the weekend. On top of all the Ferraris that will be on display, about 25 more of the company’s racing cars will see action in the 1.16-mile Hill Climb, the highlight event of the Festival of Speed. Ferraris will also be well-represented at Bonhams’ Goodwood Festival of Speed Sale. A 1972 Ferrari 365 GTB/4 “Daytona” Berlinetta will be auctioned off over the weekend, as well as a 1986 Ferrari 328 GTB, a 1989 Ferrari Testarossa, and most prominent of them all, a 1988 Ferrari F40 owned by Pink Floyd guitarist David Gilmour. If there ever was a time and a place to proudly show your tifosi colors and celebrate Ferrari’s 70th anniversary, it’s going to be at the Goodwood Festival of Speed.
