When it comes to rare classic cars, it seems like the ante is constantly being upped. Just when you think a Ferrari 250 GT Lusso or an Aston Martin DB4 set some record, another car shows up and the well-heeled collectors are there to put up top dollar for such rare vehicles.
The 2014 Ferrari F12berlinetta is a complicated car that both inspires dumbness, and has a couple features that are confusing as heck. That’s right, I’m saying bad things about a Ferrari. But before you purists call for my head on a silver platter, let me explain what I mean.
This man owns all the Ferraris. From the GTO to the F40— heck, even the F50 and the Enzo. London collector Jon Hunt has nearly every pony car you can think of in his London garage. There was one, though, that he didn’t have yet — the stunning LaFerrari.
In the market for a new Ferrari, but looking for something a little more unique? Edo Competition of Germany might have the perfect ride for you. It’s a custom Niki Lauda edition 458, and it’s for sale for €285,000.
Most people have never even set foot inside a Ferrari, so when they finally do, they can understandably be a bit giddy. That giddiness can manifest itself into holding onto gears until redline, blipping the engine incessantly, or more spectacularly…gunning it right into a wall.
Ferrari and design firm Pininfarina go way back together. The independent Italian coachbuilder has been designing body work for Alfa Romeo, Peugeot, Fiat and others for years, but it is probably most synonymous with the supercars from the Prancing Horse. But one car had us scratching our heads.
The Ferrari LaFerrari is one of the fastest cars on the planet — hands down. But like its close rival McLaren, Ferrari is testing a LaFerrari that’s even faster, and more track-focused. This new vehicle is dubbed the “XX.”
The Ferrari LaFerrari has 963 horsepower and gets to 60 mph in 3.0 seconds. The Lamborghini Sesto Elemento has 570 horsepower and gets to 60 in 2.5 seconds. They’re both pretty fast, I guess.
Somehow, somewhere in supercar fantasyland, the two met up on an open highway and decided a gentleman-like drag race was in order. We’re not sure who wins because they’re out of view faster than you can say “Holy crap, a LaFerrari and a Sesto Elemento what is happening oh my god.”
Either way, whenever two of the world’s most outrageously quick supercars race, we all win. Check it out below (Can’t see the video? Click here):
Is the Porsche 918 too far out of your price range? The Porsche 911 just too plebian? Well, you’re in luck. According to recent reports, Porsche is hard at work building a supercar to battle the Ferrari 458 and it boasts – gasp – a flat-eight engine.
