If you think your standard Ferrari F12berlinetta is too tame, call up the good folks at Novitec. The tuning house’s newest Ferrari F12 N-Largo project is a stunner of a supercar. Where the standard F12 lacks in dramatic photoshoots and carbon fiber accents, the F12 N-Largo compensates in a big way.
There’s no question that a Ferrari is a very special vehicle, but not all Prancing Horses are created equal. When the Ferrari 458 was first unveiled, the motoring world loved it — but then LaFerrari debuted, and we kinda forgot about the 458. But Ugur Sahin Design’s latest custom Ferrari may have us drooling over the 458 yet again.
We’re more than ready for this year’s Geneva Motor Show. And that’s good news, because it seems like every automaker has pulled something out from under a sheet and prepared to show it off.
From the speed demons to the city dwellers, and from the supercars to the not-so-super-cars, here’s what you can expect at the 2014 Geneva Motor Show:
Traditionally, US carmakers have a different approach to performance vehicles than our friends across the pond. The Europeans favor what may be called the “supermodel” philosophy: keep the package small and shed as much weight as possible. We Yanks, on the other hand, don’t mind a few pounds as much, so long as a good chunk of that mass is taken up by a bad-ass engine. Sometimes our school of thought has borne greater fruit; other times theirs has. But, during a glorious four-year period in the 1960s, there was no doubt that the New World had it all over the Old.
You may consider Maserati to be a lavish luxury brand, fit for the well-heeled, but the Italian automaker has a storied history in auto racing. An early racer was the Tipo 26, which won the 1,500cc class of the 1926 Targa Florio. The racing program grew, and won the Indy 500 in 1939 and 1940, and would follow with decades of strong presence in motorsport. The program could trace its roots back to 1914, and at this year’s Monterey Motorsport Reunion (Aug 14-17, 2014), a century of Maserati racing will be celebrated with a glorious gathering of racecars.
You still have all this week to register for eBay’s Dream Racing giveaway in Vegas (here). And while we’ve seen the goodies, and seen the car you could be driving – let’s take a sneak peak behind the scenes and see what goes into the making of a Ferrari-based promotion, shall we?
Remember last week when eBay wanted to send you to Vegas with loads of cash and behind the wheel of a Ferrari race car? Yeah, you can still enter that contest here. But there was one detail we may have glossed over just a teensy bit in the last post — the car.
The US bobsled team has not earned a gold medal since 1936, and to rectify that, the team has turned to ‘ze Germans– specifically to engineers at BMW. Since 2012, BMW has been working with the US bobsled team on a sled that will shave a few seconds off their time through aerodynamics.
Remember when DJ Deadmau5 had the insane idea to put a Nyan Cat wrap on his Ferrari 458? Yeah, well he actually did it, and it looks as insane in real life as it did on paper.
The baby blue wrap looks like it came straight off the YouTube’s. On the side, Nyan Cat’s pop-tart profile and rainbow trail take up the whole door panels, and the baby blue and stars (?) cover the rest of the car.
There are plenty of reasons to go to Vegas — I don’t think we need to list them. But now eBay Motors wants to give you another reason to go, and it involves race cars. Race cars taking laps at Las Vegas Motor Speedway, to be precise.
