A Lamley look at the stunning Tomica Limited Vintage Ferraris – theLamleyGroup
The Ferraris have taken over. The four new releases from Tomica Limited Vintage, the first of a few different Ferraris coming, have enthralled the diecast nerds. You can’t help but get out the phone or camera and shoot some angles of these beauties.
And it started with the F40, but the Dinos are catching up. It was interesting to watch actually. Basing it on what I watched with Japan Booster, their F40 presales went super fast, with the two Dinos lagging a bit behind. Same thing when the models were finally released a couple of weeks ago. The F40s were gobbled up.
But I think quite a few collectors are realizing they should have grabbed the Dinos as well. As soon as I debuted the Ferrari feature on my YouTube Channel Friday Night, Japan Booster listed all four. The first to sell out? The Yellow F40, which isn’t a surprise considering how limited it is. Next? Both Dinos, leaving the red F40 all by itself? My theory? Tons of you bought the F40, and as soon as you see the Dinos up close, you are realizing you need those too.

The new Tomica Limited Vintage Ferraris hit Japan Booster this morning. Here is the link and the details. – theLamleyGroup
Tomica Limited Vintage Ferrari at Japan Booster
I was talking to a friend yesterday who had just seen the photos of the new Ferraris from Tomica Limited Vintage. He said he “probably” should have pre-ordered at least the F40 on Japan Booster’s Pre-Order site. I corrected him by saying he “definitely” should have.
There are certain models from TLV you just shouldn’t “consider” buying. If you are thinking about it, just order it. For two reasons. One, you won’t regret it. At all. Two, the secondary price starts to go up immediately, meaning when you see a feature here or a photo on Instagram or wherever, and decide you want it, the price will have already increased.
The Ferraris may be the greatest example. Many of you are already on the train, having pre-ordered your F40 and Dinos at Yours on on their way I am sure.

When a Ferrari 488 Spider Becomes an Ambulance – A Driving Adventure
A crosstown adventure featuring way too much horsepower in service of a friend with peanut (and Ferrari) envy.
Sebastian Vettel raced a Ferrari against an ambulance a few years ago. But what happens when the Ferrari is an ambulance?
I leave the party with my friend Dan after midnight, on a perfect evening. His wife and baby daughter have ducked out hours ago so we can huddle around a backyard fire with a couple of our best friends. I tap into first gear and his chest tightens. It's not the tingle people feel when they first ride in a supercar. Dan's throat is closing. His inhaler is back at home. So is the EpiPen. We have to get there—now.
Damn those Italian cookies. We'd both chowed them down while waving goodbye, minutes before interrupting the neighborhood with a raspy cold start, except Dan's cookie most certainly was laced with peanut dust. That's all the permission I need to warp across our empty town. Gearchange—bang!—another gearchange, back on the gas, go, brake—all clear?—go.
Whenever there's a Ferrari speeding on deserted streets with a mission, an Amazon film crew and an Instagram post generally follow . . . but this is not fun.
Whenever there's a Ferrari speeding on deserted streets with a mission, an Amazon film crew and an Instagram post generally follow, so won't you please tune in on Saturday. But this is not fun. Should the police notice, I've decided I will not stop.
We whip through the final intersection, I squeeze the carbon brakes in a last-second turn onto his street, and there they are, a half-dozen speed bumps the condo association thought were a super idea. Finally, the front door. Dan's inhaler in the upstairs bathroom is expired. The Benadryl isn't kicking in. So off we race again, pulling up to the emergency room like it's a nightclub, in a 2016 Ferrari 488 Spider.

The Ferrari P80/C Is a Two-in-One Track Car and Garage Beauty, and There's Only One
This is the first custom, one-off track car from Ferrari, and it's reportedly going to an owner in Hong Kong.
Commissioned in 2015, the P80/C is the first Ferrari one-off track car.
It's based on the 488GT3 but adheres to no racing regulations.
A collector, reportedly in the Hong Kong region, is about to become very happy.
Fun fact: Dropping millions on this Ferrari P80/C bought one collector access to the company's secret design studio and its board of directors for four years, plus a complimentary short film produced by the dealership. Such handholding by the supercar overlords in Maranello, and the customer's delight in making them bow, could actually be more powerful than the car itself.
The money talks underneath a 488GT3 race-car chassis, where the design and engineering team had freedom from otherwise tight FIA restriction. Ferrari says it's the first dedicated track car it has ever created as a one-off, although the P80/C does not reach the same extremes as the FXX K. What it offers, however, is the right to stay in this owner's garage somewhere in Hong Kong.

The Ferrari F8 Tributo Uses a Bunch of Aero Tricks to Make it Faster Than Ever
For decades automotive aerodynamics were viewed almost as an act of the dark arts. Progress in this arena has been slow and plodding, but it finally feels like we’ve reached the pinnacle of the science. Generational improvements still occur, but it’s reached a certain point of diminishing returns. That is, unless you’re Ferrari. The new F8 Tributo, it says, is 10% more aerodynamically efficient than the 488 it replaces.
The F8 accomplishes this with a serious revamp of the aero package. Not only does the new body flow air more efficiently and create more downforce, it looks a right side better, too! I like the way the F8 looks, it’s a shade prettier than anything Ferrari has built in decades.

Ranked: The 10 most exciting cars of the Geneva Motor Show 2019 | DriveTribe
Motor shows have had a bad wrap of late. Increasingly, they’re accused of being overly expensive and largely pointless. Manufacturers are reducing their efforts or not showing up at all, leaving shows like Paris at the tail end of last year with entire halls left empty.
But Geneva is different.
This is the biggest motor show in the world, and it’s still alive and well. It seems that everyone and their mums have brought along something new and exciting this year. There’s plenty of cutting-edge futuristic tech on display, as well as lots of really, really fast stuff. Of course, subjectively ranking newly revealed cars in order of ‘exciting-ness’ is an entirely pointless exercise. So... here's my list of the 10 most exciting cars from Geneva 2019.
Why is this the most exciting car at Geneva 2019? Surely it’s just another typically mad hypercar from those Swedish blokes who exclusively build mad hypercars. Business as usual, no? Sort of. Except this one is a bit special - because it could very well be the world's first 300mph roadcar.
That’s not confirmed yet. Christian Von Koenigsegg says the car has managed it in simulators, and he’s confident it will do it in real life. And this is not a man who makes unsubstantiated claims - this is the man behind the Agera RS - the current fastest car in the world.
So what’s new? Well, same old 5-litre twin-turbo V8 except it’s lighter now, and revs higher. Meaning you get 1,578bhp. And a massive wing. Oh, and it’s named after his dad, so it’s adorable as well as terrifying.

R​imac, move to the side. Pininfarina is here. | DriveTribe
It’s always the engineers designing the cars. Sure, the designers draw the sketches, and make the concept, but past that point, they get pushed around by the engineers. They’re told the wheels are too big. They’re told it’s too low. They’re told that there’s not enough boot space. But what if the tables were turned? What if the designers could tell the engineers that the front end needs to be shorter?
Form over function worked for Steve Jobs, so the exotic car market has finally taken a page out of Apple’s book. Suffice it to say, it worked. The result is called the Pininfarina Battista, and while on the outside it is a beauty, in terms of mechanics, it’s a beast. It’s Rimac made powertrain produces 1900 hp, and to ensure that you get whiplash, they’ve thrown in AWD as well. All that means a mind-bending 0-60 time of sub two seconds, and a top speed of over 217 mph. To add to the g-forces injuring your neck in the Battista, the car is fitted with some serious aero. Air flows underneath the car through a slat that is in-between the headlights. The new Pininfarina also has an active rear wing that is split into two parts, with connecting carbon fibre joining the flaps. Unfortunately, I doubt you’ll ever get to experience 1900 hp snapping your neck, as Pininfarina will only be making 150 units, and even if you find yourself getting offered an allocation, you’ll have to have deep pockets, as the Battista costs anywhere between 2 and 2.5 million USD. You will have some time to save up though, because the Battista is expected to hit U.S roads in 2021. Mate Rimac signed a deal with Pininfarina allowing them to use his powertrain. That very powertrain is now in the number one competitor to Rimac’s very own Concept_Two. I have a feeling that he will regret the day he put his name on the line. And I am not just talking about signing the paper.

Ferrari F8 Tributo – Returns the Mid-Engined Sports Car to Its Roots
Ferrari maintains its focus on technology and performance, but brings back some of its classic subjective delights.
Ferrari replaces the 488GTB with the F8 Tributo, a mid-engined, V-8–powered sports car.
As the name implies, it is a tribute to the automaker's lineage of mid-engined cars.
The F8 Tributo makes 710 hp from the same 3.9-liter twin-turbocharged V-8 used in the 488 Pista.
Maybe it's because every new Ferrari debuts in a scorching coat of red paint, or, maybe it is Ferrari's recent transition to gentle visual redesigns of its products that makes the new F8 Tributo appear, well, familiar. Is it that different from the 488GTB it replaces? Break out that zoom function in your browser or on your phone, look closer, and the F8 Tributo's familiar visage isn't quite what it seems.
The very literal name Ferrari has bestowed on its 488GTB replacement, F8 Tributo, is a hint as to what it's up to here. This is a return to form, on an optics level, for Ferrari's mid-engined eight-cylinder sports car, which experienced a hard break when the 458 Italia arrived in 2010. That car's form valued function over beauty, and it had two single round taillights instead of four; when it evolved into the 488GTB, Ferrari really let its hair down and turbocharged its V-8, an act of autoerotic suffocation that exploded the engine's power at the expense of the free-breathing noise we'd come to expect from Maranello's eights. It still had two taillights.

Pininfarina Battista – 1900-HP Electric Hypercar Debuts at Geneva
"Above all, it must be beautiful," says the firm that has made some of history's most legendarily beautiful sports cars.
A 1900-hp electric hypercar with a top speed around 217 mph is coming from the longtime Ferrari coachbuilder.
The Pininfarina Battista is claimed to be the most powerful road car ever built in Italy.
The Battista is making its debut at the Geneva auto show, and U.S. buyers—a few of them, anyway—will be able to get the Battista in 2021.
It has been nearly a year since we first told you about Pininfarina's plans to launch its own car-building division, Automobili Pininfarina and to bring out its own electric hypercar. Now, to correspond with its official unveiling at the Geneva auto show, we can finally bring you pictures of the finished Battista. With all-wheel drive and a peak output of up to 1900 horsepower, Pininfarina boasts that it will be the most powerful road car ever assembled in Italy. The new Pininfarina Battista will be reaching a small group of U.S. buyers in 2021.
Pininfarina says it will build no more than 150 of the Battista, with the plan to split sales equally among Europe, North America, and the rest of the world. CEO Michael Perschke says that interest in the U.S. has been strong, based on a series of private viewings of an earlier version of the finished Battista at Pebble Beach last year. "We have a good 30-plus down payments in the bank," he told Car and Driver. "In the U.S., more than 65 percent of the cars we intend to deliver are already allocated and reserved by clients." This despite a price between $2 million and $2.5 million.

Ferrari reveals 488 replacement: Meet the F8 Tributo | DriveTribe
Ferrari has treated us to a look at its incoming 488 replacement ahead of its official reveal at the Geneva Motor Show next week.
This is the new F8 Tributo – and it’s a bit quick. Here’s what you need to know:
Just as Lambo recently released the updated Huracan Evo which matches the power of the pointier, more track-focused Performante, the ‘entry level’ F8 matches the power of the pointier, more track-focused 488 Pista at 710bhp. That’s 50 more than the 488 GTB, a car not often accused of lacking poke. It’s the same 3.9 litre twin-turbo V8 as its predecessor, a powertrain which Ferrari never misses a chance to remind us is winner of the ‘engine of the year’ award three years running now. Turbo lag? Absolutely none, they claim.
Zero to 60 will take 2.9 seconds, and top speed is 211mph. It’s surely no coincidence that the new F8 has exactly the same horsepower as McLaren’s 720S, which has become something of a supercar benchmark of late. Lots of squeaky bums in Woking this morning, no doubt.

You Can Trace Ferrari's Newest Car Back to 2009
The Ferrari F8 Tributo made its debut today, a new mid-engine V8 Ferrari road car. Except it’s not all that new, as the bones of the thing go back to when everyone was getting laid off in the Recession.
Indeed, the F8 is a facelift/update/development/whatever you want to call it of the 2015 Ferrari 488, which was a facelift/update/development of the 2009 Ferrari 458. A Ferrari spokesman confirmed to us that yes, the F8 Tributo and the 458 share a platform.
Nobody thinks too greatly about the distinction between 488 and 458, as the later car was genuinely a major development, at least in terms of the engine, going from naturally-aspirated to turbocharged. That’s a real change to the character of the car.
By contrast, the F8 and the 488 are both turbo cars, the differences between then the new version has... yet more power. You’re basically getting the developments done to the 488 that made it into the limited-edition Pista, but in a regular production model.
Now, to be fair, this is typical of Ferrari’s mid-engine V8 cars. The vaunted Ferrari 355 was basically just a development of the 348, just as the 328 was of the 308 before it and the 430 was of the 360 after it.

The Ferrari F8 Tributo Is A 710-Horsepower Mid-Engined V8 Beast
Ferrari has just shown the first full pictures of its replacement for the 488 GTB, and it’s a mid-engined 710 horsepower angry red beast called the F8 Tributo. While still based on the 2009-vintage 458 Italia underpinnings, the body and interior are all new, and the drivetrain is essentially the same as the one in the bonkers 488 Pista.
“Tributo” is the Italian word for “tribute” and not “three butos” as I originally thought. A tribute is sort of a tax, so you can think of it as the Ferrari F8 Tax, if you’d like. I’m not planning to.
Ferrari is very proud of the 3.9-liter turbocharged V8 they’ve stuck behind the seats, as you can tell from their press release:
“The name is an homage to both the model’s uncompromising layout and to the engine that powers it – with a massive 720 cv and a record specific power output of 185 cv/l, it is the most powerful V8 in Prancing Horse history for a non-special series car and sets the benchmark not just for turbos, but for engines across the board. The 3902 cc V8 won “Best Engine” in the International Engine of the Year awards three years running in 2016, 2017 and 2018 and, in addition, in 2018, was awarded the title of the best engine of the last two decades.”
The new 710 horsepower/568 lb-ft of torque engine gives the Tributo a 49 horsepower bump over the 488 GTB it’s replacing, and Ferrari says it’s 10 percent more aerodynamically efficient, so if you buy one you can test that out in your basement wind tunnel.
