This Ferrari 550 Maranello is Supremely Classy

When it comes to Ferraris manufactured after 1975, I could really care less—with the exception of the 288 GTO, and F40, of course. Other than that, there’s really nothing that stirs my soul the way a 250 GTO or 275 GTS does. Nothing other than the Maranello series, that is. Continue Reading »

This is What It’s Like to Drive Vintage Shelby Race Cars

We’ve all seen the hallowed cars in print before, icons like the Shelby Cobra, Shelby Daytona, and Ford GT40. Their likenesses have become unmistakable and their stories legendary. But what are these vintage racing superstars actually like to drive?  Continue Reading »

Classic Ferrari Ditches V8 For Electric Power

1978-ferrari-308-gte-ev-1a

“Blasphemy, I tell you,” is what some Ferrari fans may now be screaming at their computer screens, “blasphemy!” And admittedly, they do have a point. Ferrari has never built a purely electric car, but that minor detail didn’t stop California’s EV West from giving it a go.  Continue Reading »

This is the 1,200-HP Ferrari Hypercar of the Future

ferrari-hypercar-concept-04

The Ferrari LaFerrari is a $1.4 million, 959-horsepower piece of engineering genius. It’s a worthy successor to the Enzo, and one of the most talked about cars of the past few years. But when it’s gone, something will need to step in its place. The Ferrari F80 Raeli concept could be that successor. Continue Reading »

Novitec Ferrari F12berlinetta Gets Meaner Looks, More Power

novitec-n-largo-f12berlinetta-1a

On its own, the Ferrari F12berlinetta is already a jaw-dropping machine. Its sultry shape captivates the eye, its $320,000 sticker price shocks the wallet, and with 730 horsepower on tap… it’s enough to rocket you into the stratosphere.  Continue Reading »

How Fast Is Fast? 214 MPH In A Ferrari LaFerrari

Very few people get to experience what it’s like to get behind the wheel of a supercar on an empty runway, and simply floor it. I can only assume it’s quite the sensation, especially in the $1.4 million dollar Ferrari LaFerrari. While the driver doesn’t reach the limit of 217 mph, (or the claimed 215 in the video title for that matter), he comes pretty close, getting all the way up to 214 before letting off the throttle.

This 1980 Rover SD1 Survivor is a Rare Sight in the US

1980-rover-sd1-usa-1r

Mention that you drive a Rover in the US, and you’re bound to get a few looks, along with the requisite, “you mean a Land Rover?” But pull up most anywhere stateside in one of these and those looks will be less of wonder, and more of envy. This is a Rover SD1.  Continue Reading »

Watch a Ferrari F12 and Lamborghini Aventador Roadster Hit the Drag Strip

ferrari-vs-lambo

There are a lot of differences between the Ferrari F12 and Lamborghini Aventador. But at the same time, there are a few similarities too. They both have about 700 horsepower, give or take. They both are large touring cars. And they both make everything else on the road look inferior—but that’s beside the point. Continue Reading »

This 1-of-23 Ferrari has a Unique Bugatti Connection

1951-ferrari-340-america-chiron-1c

A few years ago, if you said the name “Chiron” in passing, you wouldn’t perk many ears. Utter the name “Veyron” on the other hand and that’s a different story. Even non-automotive types know of the Bugatti Veyron supercar (named after race driver Pierre Veyron).  Continue Reading »

Watch A Ferrari F40 Drift Up A Japanese Ski Resort

What would you do if you owned a Ferrari F40? Would you hide it away in a climate controlled garage devoid of light so as not to cause any fading? You could always trot it out for the occasional six figures car club meet, or concours event. A Ferrari F40 isn’t meant to be driven, it’s meant to be moved.  Continue Reading »
