Battista Pininfarina's Personal Ferrari 275GTB Is Spectacular | News | Car and Driver | Car and Driver Blog
With some measure of convoluted thought, the automobile pictured above could be the single most important example of a pure roadgoing Ferrari of the 1960s. That’s a bold statement for a car that, at first blush, looks like a 275GTB. It’s also a machine that may have flown under the radar of less hard-core fans of the storied Italian marque. So what is it? Well, it’s a Ferrari 275GTB. A Speciale to be exact, a one-of-one automobile built by Pininfarina for its founder, Battista “Pinin” Farina.

2017 Ferrari GTC4Lusso: Ferrari Face with a Volvo Booty | Review | Car and Driver
Ferrari face with a Volvo booty.
Overview: The GTC4Lusso is essentially an evolution of Ferrari’s now retired FF. It has two doors, four seats, and a shooting-brake rear end that puts it slightly at odds with the rest of Ferrari’s exotic portfolio. We’ve found this four-seater to be aggressive and highly capable on the road. It’s also less feral than other cars in Ferrari’s lineup, as befits a grand tourer. The two bucketlike rear seats are surprisingly comfortable, and they fold flat to significantly increase the size of the useful cargo area. Steering-wheel-mounted turn-signal controls, huge column-mounted paddle shifters, and a dashboard with more cow byproduct than a McDonald’s supply truck all place the Lusso firmly in the Ferrari family tree, as does the exotic howling of its engines.
What’s New: After the Lusso’s debut for 2017, Ferrari has added a new model to the lineup for 2018, dubbed the GTC4Lusso T. Ferrari faithful will recognize the T as a designator for the brand’s twin-turbocharged 3.9-liter V-8 engine, tuned in this instance to produce 602 horsepower and 561 lb-ft of torque. The Lusso T also uses a lighter and simpler rear-wheel-drive setup in place of the all-wheel drive in the V-12 model that we drove for this review. Ferrari claims that this new model will trail the original by only a tenth of a second or so to 60 mph, and the V-8 actually produces 47 lb-ft more torque than the V-12—but it has 79 less horsepower. It’s also around 40 grand less expensive. The prudent buyer would choose the V-8–powered Lusso T, but prudence does not often impel people to visit a Ferrari store.

Top 10 Supercars Of 2017 | DriveTribe
It's the end of another year and the automotive world has been as incredible as it could be! This year saw the birth of new generation of hypercars which were more focused on shedding the weight and being as aerodynamic as possible rather than just having 1000+hp engines. We also witnessed some records being broken by some underdogs! So without further ado, here is my list of top 10 supercars from 2017.

Meet Sam Moores and his blue Ferrari F40 | DriveTribe
I got into supercars a very long time ago, and throughout those years I made some great and inspiring friends with amazing stories. So I thought it was finally time to shine a light on them.
First up is Sam Moores Photography who takes some stunning photographs, as you'll see from his instagram. A few months ago he promised me a ride in his Blue Ferrari F40 so I certainly did not expect to get a message from Sam reminding me of his promise and if I wanted to come along for a ride, to which I said yes of course!

2019 Ferrari 488GTO Spied Honing its Superiority | News | Car and Driver
Maranello's rebuttal to the latest from Lamborghini and McLaren.
What It Is: A red Ferrari that’s more interesting than the typical scarlet horse seen cruising Bel Air, London, or some other such place. That’s because it is a prototype previewing the 488GTB’s rarer, higher-performance sibling. Ferrari built a similarly upgraded version of the 488GTB’s predecessor, the 458 Italia, but rather than that maxi model’s Speciale name, this new one is likely to opt for the historic GTO label.
Why It Matters: Ferrari remains synonymous with the word supercar, but the famously insecure company can’t stand to be upstaged no matter the invincibility of its brand image. Today’s 488GTB outperforms not only the old 458 Italia but even the 458 Speciale. It seems that’s no longer good enough for Ferrari, particularly in the face of fresher competitors such as McLaren’s 720S and Lamborghini’s Huracán Performante. While Ferrari clearly believes it needs an answer to these upstarts, we couldn’t care less about its motivations because the resulting 488GTO surely will be an epic thing to drive. Ain’t competition grand?

2018 Ferrari GTC4 Lusso T First Drive | Review | Car and Driver
A twin-turbo V-8 steps in for the V-12, and rear-drive replaces all-wheel drive.
Ferrari offers its buyers myriad customization options, but this “choice is yours” philosophy generally doesn’t extend to powertrains. And yet that’s what we have with the introduction of the GTC4Lusso T, which offers a twin-turbocharged V-8 rather than the GTC4Lusso’s naturally aspirated V-12.
Ferrari performance and panache, genuine livability, you can bring the kids!
Missing that V-12 magic, general unattainability.

Ferrari FXX K Evo: Maranello’s Most FXX’d-Up Factory Special Ever | News | Car and Driver | Car and Driver Blog
When it comes to Ferrari’s vaguely LaFerrari–based FXX K, the 1036-hp track-only living prototype that a select few purchased for gajillions of dollars, there are no rules. Literally. The car was developed for maximum on-track performance, and because it’ll never compete in a real racing series, it needn’t conform to any regulations beyond Ferrari’s own expectations. So, naturally, the Scuderia has just introduced an even more insane version, the FXX K Evo, in the midst of the company’s 70th anniversary.
To understand why Ferrari would bother building a higher-performance version of its highest-performance car that very few people can afford—let alone be allowed to buy—and that won’t ever race in a sanctioned competition, you must know that the FXX K is a prototype. Ferrari treats the few cars it built as development mules for future automotive boundary breaking, and it treats its owners as “supercar enthusiasts eager to share the development of technologically innovative content with the Prancing Horse technicians, through driving a closed-wheel laboratory car.”

The Ferrari FXX-K Evo is here to rewrite the laws of physics | DriveTribe
If the Ferrari LaFerrari wasn’t hardcore enough for you with its fixed seats and 950bhp, then the track-only FXX-K was the only choice Now though, there’s a new model and its whole new level of chainsaw and hockey mask insanity when compared to its predecessor, say hello to the LaFerrari FXX-K Evo.
You may be thinking how did Ferrari manage to better the already chainsaw wielding FXX-K? For starters, its power output from the V12 motor remains at 1,036bhp, which could be enough to achieve time travel (or not).

From WWE to Hollywood stardom, Dwayne Johnson AKA The Rock, is an idol for many. Starting off in professional wrestling, Dwayne quickly reached the top, becoming one of the most celebrated wrestlers of the 21st century. However, he eventually decided a career change was in order. Moving in to Hollywood, The Rock dominated once again, appearing in a number of action packed blockbusters including the Fast and Furious franchise and San Andreas.
In 2016, Dwayne Johnson’s net worth was estimated to be a staggering $185 million, making him the world’s highest paid actor for that year.
So, to celebrate this absolute beast of a man, we decided to take a look inside of his garage to see if his car collection matched his stature.

I Spent a Few Days with a Ferrari 488GTB and Dodge Charger Pursuit | Column | Car and Driver
These two cars are on the opposite ends of the automotive public-affection spectrum.
If you’ve ever watched VH1’s Behind the Music, you know that there’s a story behind every album. I mean, Mötley Crüe didn’t create a head-banging juggernaut like Dr. Feelgood in a vacuum, people. This magazine, similar to the Crüe in so many ways, also has stories behind the, um, stories. And I’m not just talking about Phillips’s solo rap career. As a prelude to “How Fast Does Your Car Need to Be to Outrun a Cop?”, I spent a few days with both the Dodge Charger Pursuit and the Ferrari 488GTB, giving me some ­contemporaneous experience with life on the far end of the automotive public-­affection spectrum.

Ferrari Scavenger Hunt! Collect All 28 New and Classic Prancing Horses in Manhattan | News | Car and Driver | Car and Driver Blog
This weekend in Manhattan is not for strolling Central Park, doing laundry, or any of the normal activities tourists and New Yorkers enjoy. It’s about spotting and lusting after 28 Ferraris scattered across the city.
It’s like a Pokémon GO challenge, only different. Ferrari wants you to visit four places in Manhattan, tag photos of its cars on social media, and learn something about its 70-year history as the company’s anniversary celebrations wind down. Up for grabs is 70th-anniversary swag like hats and shirts. Better stuff, such as paddock access at the Montreal Grand Prix and test drives for mere cashless mortals, also will be awarded. No purchase of a 2017 488GTB is necessary to win, although you’ll find one parked in front of the Hublot watch store on Fifth Avenue, should you change your mind.
