More exclusive than a supercar: A beginner’s guide to buying a GT3 race car | Ars Technica
Automakers are selling hundreds of these turn-key racing supercars.
In the past decade, the well-worn automotive cliché Race on Sunday, sell on Monday has taken a surprising twist. Now, automakers have realized that they can race on Sunday and sell race cars on Monday. If you've got the money, Porsche, Lamborghini, Audi, Acura, Ferrari, Mercedes, McLaren, Nissan, Bentley, and more have a race car for you—for around $500,000.
The rise in popularity of supercars worldwide has been paralleled by explosive growth in international GT3 class sportscar racing. GT3 cars are racing versions of the road-going supercars/GT cars that star in video games, YouTube channels, and print platforms. Instead of being built to a specific set of technical rules, in GT3 each make of car is benchmarked and then "performance balanced" by the FIA (the sporting organization that governs world motorsport) to create a relatively level playing field.

Is it true Tomica Limited Vintage is taking on Ferrari? You bet it is. – theLamleyGroup
I reserve the questionable language for truly significant events. So…
Holy shit Tomica Limited Vintage is doing Ferrari!
As reported by Dengeki Hobby Web, Tomica Limited Vintage has a display at the All Japan Model Hobby Show, and there they are unveiling early prototypes of several upcoming Ferraris. From an F40 with opening parts to a 365GT to several 512.
It is quite extraordinary to see. I have had a lot of cars on my TLV Want List, but I never even considered Ferrari. TLV has done some Italian cars in the past, including Alfa Romero and Fiat, so there is precedence, but still. How crazy is this?
It looks like the parent company of Maisto has sublicensed Ferrari to Tomy, so this was obviously a possibility, but it is so exciting to see it happening. However they were able to make this happen, the result is the best 1/64 brand in the world is taking on Ferrari.
Slated for March 2019. Get on that TLV Train.

The GTC4Lusso T is a Ferrari you really could drive every day | Ars Technica
This $256,000 wagon has style, pace, and cargo space—who needs an SUV?
Spending a few days with a Ferrari is a treat, even if you get to drive as diverse an array of vehicles as we do here at Ars. As a small manufacturer with perhaps the best brand recognition in the auto industry, Ferrari doesn't really need to lend journalists its cars to sell them. And with a small press fleet and a big country to cover, the opportunity to drive one therefore remains rare. So it's perhaps not surprising that having recently scheduled such a loan, it's something I still look forward to immensely. That was certainly the case for this car, the $256,000 Ferrari GTC4Lusso T.
The new vehicle is the replacement for the Ferrari FF, and the prospect of four days with a Lusso T offered a chance to see how the legendary Italian automaker evolves and iterates its ideas. Ferrari's goal with the Lusso T was to build on the success of the FF, which sold well by the standards of four-seat Ferraris. The car maker wanted to create something that was both "sporty and versatile, as well as perfect for driving on a daily basis."

Top 7 fastest naturally aspirated road cars ever | DriveTribe
Natural aspiration has been falling down a slippery slope ever since the dawn of forced induction, with atmospheric performance engines now being chased with pitchforks and torches to the far flung reaches of the automotive world.
Twin-turbocharging is now the go-to method of creating supercar levels of power but there's still something to be said for a highly tuned, bored-out naturally aspirated engine. To celebrate the last free-breathing beasts alive today, we've collected the fastest of them all that stand defiant against any form of bolt-on compressor.

Video: The Ferrari Pista In The Ferrari Configurator! | DriveTribe
Autojunk.nl have uploaded this video of a view around the new Ferrari Pista model. The video appears to be the car in the Ferrari configurator, but it gives us a proper look around the new model, exposing the external features, along with showing us into the interior too.
Rumours have suggested that a private unveiling took place this evening. "Pista" means racetrack in Italian, and the new model will be powered by a 3.9L V8 engine, producing 711BHP, a 0-60MPH time of 2.8 seconds and a top speed of 211MPH. The Pista appears to have revised and better dynamics, presumably for better downforce.

2019 Ferrari 488 Pista: The 710-HP Track Warrior Revealed | News | Car and Driver
Maximum appreciation at 211 mph.
Ferrari isn’t so much an automaker as a hedge fund guaranteeing absurd returns. The 2019 488 Pista—the name means “track” in Italian—is Maranello’s most extreme V-8 supercar to date, and it very well may be the safest way for your bank account to experience 211 mph.
Ferrari’s primary intention with the 488 Pista—which follows in the tire tracks of the previous hard-core 360 Challenge Stradale, 430 Scuderia, and 458 Speciale—is to make amateurs feel like Fernando Alonso. The Pista is the nearest thing to attaching a license plate to a 488GTE, GT3, or Challenge racer. Except it’s probably faster.

2018 Ferrari Portofino First Drive | Review | Car and Driver
There's nothing "starter" about this 591-hp prancing horse.
Before 2008, no roadgoing Ferrari had ever featured an eight-cylinder engine ahead of the driver, a dual-clutch automatic transaxle at the rear, direct fuel injection, or a power-folding hardtop. All of those brand firsts showed up at once on the sweet-driving California wrapped, sadly, in suboptimal styling.
HIGHS
Looks inspire lust, convincing as a coupe when necessary, it’s a Ferrari.
LOWS
Some chassis flex, rear seats suitable only for children.

Have a Peek at the Ferrari 488 Pista ahead of Its Debut | News | Car and Driver | Car and Driver Blog
Official-looking pictures of a hard-core Ferrari 488 surfaced on the Ferrari Chat forum this morning, giving us a first look at the car that’s set to replace the 458 Speciale. The car looks identical to the one teased in a video uploaded to Facebook by the company last week, so we think this is the real deal.
What Ferrari still hasn’t revealed are any specifications for the top-tier 488, which, judging by the label on the car, will be the 488 Pista (Italian for “racetrack”). A leaked PowerPoint presentation for the car that appeared back in January said it would be getting a Challenge-derived engine capable of more than 700 horsepower, along with a bunch of upgraded aerodynamics. The pictures show air channels, wings, and tunnels everywhere as well as a huge splitter, a big lip spoiler, and a diffuser.

Ferrari and Porsche announce new cars for the wealthy track addict | Ars Technica
Less weight, more power, more money: the new 488 Pista and 911 GT3 RS.
The Geneva Motor Show is just around the corner, and Porsche and Ferrari both have something special up their sleeves. Yes, it's a pair of track-focused supercars that promise to lap faster and thrill more than anything either company has built in the past. Meet the new 911 GT3 RS and 488 Pista, two cars that herald the end of the "regular" production models they're derived from—in this case the 991 generation Porsche 911 and the Ferrari 488, each of which is due for replacement in the near future.
