blogentry-133713-0-06459900-1537351400_thumb.jpgFerrari has revealed some new information about its future product lineup at its Capital Markets Day event.


The most interesting news of them all is the confirmation of a new LaFerrari. No dates were given on when it will be ready but they did say that it will be feature state of the art technology and will with the help of the new hybrid system, it will go faster than the LaFerrari.


blogentry-133713-0-80974200-1537351409_thumb.jpgOn the topic of hybridisation, the company is now fully embracing hybridization as the automaker revealed that approximately 60% of its vehicles will have a hybrid powertrain by 2022. It also confirmed that it plans to launch 15 new models across the range between 2019 and 2022. Customers can expect “significant increase in the average retail price.” for these new cars.


blogentry-133713-0-07017800-1537351413_thumb.jpgMoving on, Ferrari has classified its range of cars into four “strategic pillars”, slightly similar to how McLaren has done so with its Sports, Super and Ultimate Series. The first of the series for Ferrari is called the Sport range and includes “two tier mid rear engine product range” and a “full hybrid range by 2021.” The new 488 replacement will also fall under this range.


blogentry-133713-0-34883800-1537351417_thumb.jpgThe Gran Turismo range will focus more on comfort and will feature GTs like the Portofino which will receive hybridisation in time to come. Joining the GT range will be its new crossover called the Purosangue. Nothing much has been said about the car but expect it to drive well like any other Ferrari. Interestingly, it seems like there will be a return of a model that has a “unique design inspired by the classic and refined Ferrari Gran Turismo of 1950s and 1960s.”


Moving on, one will find cars like the 488 Pista in the Special Series range where they will be more powerful than the cars they are based on.


blogentry-133713-0-78086900-1537351406_thumb.jpgIcona range cars will include special limited-edition cars like the recently announced Monza SP1 and Monza SP2. These cars are “iconic Ferraris reinterpreted with innovative materials and state of the art technologies”, like how the SP1 and SP2 were based on the 812 Superfast and then restyled with inspiration from the 750 Monza and 860 Monza.

    Owner unwilling to pay after workshop rendered service

    A post about a customer who refused to pay after a battery replacement workshop rendered its services has gone viral online. Spotted on its own facebook page, FastFix Car Battery Replacement Service explained how the whole issue came about.  It wrote in its post that its client, Mr C, reached out to them saying that he needed help as his car could not start. After listening to the symptoms the car showed( car still cranks and aircon is not as strong as before), the workshop concluded that it needed a new battery. However, upon reaching Mr C, whose car was parked in the CBD and hence the need to pay for ERP charges, the guys from FastFix realised that it wasn't the battery that needed replacing.

    Concluding that there was nothing the guys from FastFix could do to help, Mr C was then asked to pay for the labour fee that had been pointed out before in their Whatsapp conversation. Unfortunately, Mr C disagreed and refused to pay the $50 that they had agreed on as nothing has been done to his Kia.  There was not much FastFix could do which probably prompted them to 'share their story' of the client on their facebook page.     Here are some of the notable comment in the post.
