Published by on Jul 11th, 2014, No Comments

Ferrari 458 Speciale

One of the UK’s leading car reviewers, and all round petrol heads, AutoCar, recently had the opportunity to take the all new Ferrari 458 Speciale around the track at Castle Coombe.

The 458 is, as the name suggests, a very special car. And of course, it’s very beautiful too. However, for the guys at AutoCar, taking the Ferrari 458 Speciale around the Castle Coombe circuit, was somewhat of a deja vu experience.

As they mention in the video, the last time the group was at Castle Coombe, the took the Ferrari 430 Scuderia around the track. The Scuderia, as they say, quickly became one of their favourite sports cars ever.  (more…)

F12 TRS

When Ferrari does something, they do it good. And this testament has been proved one again in the form of the all new, all amazing, F12 TRS.

This car is basically the stuff dreams are made if. Many a sports car fan would probably tear up at the sight of this beauty in their driveway. Unfortunately for us (and fortunately for one lucky person) we will never be able to get our hands on this beauty, as it is a special, one-off edition.

The F12 TRS embodies a somewhat ‘old school glamour’ when it comes to sports cars. It is quite clearly designed to go fast and it is quite clearly Ferrari. (more…)

Jay Leno 1952 Ferrari Barchetta

It seems as though Jay Leno’s privileges (or luck) just seems to get better and better.

While we are already insanely jealous of his incredible car collection – and not even to mention the fact that he basically gets to drive any collector’s car his heart desires – the little green monster inside of us turned a different shade of green after we saw this. And it’s not because the car itself is green.

The ex talk show host recently had the opportunity to take a very, very rare Ferrari for a ride about town.

Now when we say rare, we mean really rare. This is a 1952 Ferarri Barchetta – a one of a kind, once off, special edition beaut that belonged to none other than Hnery Ford II. And what’s even more astonishing, is the fact that it was given to Ford as gift by Mr. Ferrari himself; Enzo Ferrari. (more…)

Ferrari’s test driver, Raffaele De Simone, recently did a video for Ferrari where he takes the viewers into his signature 458 Speciale for a ride around the track at Fiorano.

The Ferrari 458 Speciale is the track version of the 458 Italia and hence, is faster and produces more power. As De Simone takes the viewer for a virtual ride in the Speciale, he discusses some of the more important components of this very special car. (more…)
