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 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.
Looks inspire lust, convincing as a coupe when necessary, it’s a Ferrari.
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.

Ferrari-Based Not-a-Lancia-Stratos Ready for Production | News | Car and Driver | Car and Driver Blog
Back in 2011, the pet project of a moneyed German executive to resurrect the iconic 1970s-era Lancia Stratos rally/sports car birthed a functioning prototype. The car, known as the New Stratos, was built off the shortened chassis of a Ferrari F430 Scuderia, and it looked, drove, and sounded incredible. Orders soon came flying in—but Pininfarina, which undertook the prototype’s transformation to production, would only build the cars on the say-so of its more famous client, Ferrari. Which Ferrari didn’t give.
Seven years later, it appears that the project’s backers have found a workaround. As the saying goes, if Ferrari doesn’t let its favorite coachbuilder hack away at a few of its prized sports cars, find a new coachbuilder that doesn’t care what Ferrari thinks.

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?
