  1. So I had a choice between this car movie and Midway and initially I had my misgivings about a car movie being exciting or being a big screen movie. I was wrong on both counts. This movie stars Matt Damon and Christopher Bale as Shelby and Miles the two people behind the true story of Ford racing against Ferrari in the Le Mans race. Firstly the two of them make a lovely bromance pair which fuels the tension between them and the bureaucrats running Ford, and Josh Lucas has the unenviable task of playing the chief suit who stands in their freewheeling ways. He does well as the sort of villain and the rest of the cast work well to portray the urgency, the humor and the thrill of racing. But it's about the time off the track especially the trials and tribulations of trying to put together a car worthy of challenging the mighty Enzo Ferrari that makes this more than just another racing show. The son and wife of Miles are actually my favorite characters. Their presence adds a certain subtle element that grounds the movie and fills in an important role to keep this about the human drama and elevates the whole movie to more than pit stops and engine roars. The choices of actors in this show are spot on. But petrol heads fear not, the subwoofers will be all pumping throughout the show whenever there's an ignition, acceleration or even when the engines are purring. You will not be starving for action here. But what Damon and Bale put together is a tale of friendship, a David vs Goliath, show in a way the Fast and Furious franchise miss out on.. you will still get your thrills and spills, but more than that, you get tears, laughter and heart stomping moments of victory whilst enjoying an era of danger and unbridled adrenaline rush with cars built for speed and not safety. I have a new found respect for Le Mans drivers and their teams. Highly recommended

    Passion for racing

    Hello everyone . Is anyone here passionate about racing
  3. Ferrari Roma: the lowdown on Maranello's Vantage source: https://www.carmagazine.co.uk/car-news/first-official-pictures/ferrari/roma/ ► Front-engined hardtop weighs in at an estimated £180k and 611bhp ► All-new infotainment and cockpit ► Based on the Portofino but lower, lighter, faster Ferrari has unveiled the Roma, a new front/mid-engined coupe with 2+ seating (even Ferrari isn’t claiming anyone can fit in the two rear seats…). The car uses a heavily modified Portofino spaceframe and a new version of the twin-turbo V8 that debuted in the mid-engined 488. Priced at just over 200,000 Euros in Italy (expect a UK price around £180k), the Roma will reach first customers next summer. It is nothing less than the fifth new car Maranello’s introduced this year, and fleshes out the less expensive end of a range now capped by the mid-engined hybrid V8 SF90 Stradale. How much Portofino is there in the Roma? Ferrari is adamant the Roma isn’t simply a coupe version of its existing folding hardtop, but the parallels are clear; same fundamental mechanical architecture, closely-related engine, same wheelbase (2670mm). Key differences are a new interior, complete with SF90-derived driver’s display and touchscreen interface, the all-new aluminium body and a new transaxle gearbox. The eight-speed twin clutch unit is related to that of the SF90 Stradale, and is both 6kg lighter than the Portofino’s seven-speeder and capable of faster and more comfortable shifts. What’s under the hood? The Roma’s engine is a reworked version of the twin-turbo V8 that debuted in the 488 GTB, and has since been crowned engine of the year no less than four times. It’s a sublime engine, one that wears its forced induction lightly, with a searing, almost naturally-aspirated rush to the redline absent in many turbocharged V8s. The unit’s been worked over pretty substantially for the Roma, delivering a 30-35bhp power increase, though some of that’s been negated by the need to meet new emissions regulations, and to fit petrol particulate filters in the exhausts. Peak output is 611bhp at 7500rpm. The Portofino taps out at 592bhp. The engine work runs to new cams with increased lift, reduced back-pressure in the exhausts and new sensors in the turbos, able to precisely monitor the turbines’ speed and therefore let Ferrari safely wring more from them without showering the engine bay with shrapnel. As well as reclaiming the power lost to the new particulate filters, chief technical officer Michael Leiters also claims the exhaust sound has survived intact. While the Roma’s platform is hybrid-compatible, Ferrari is at pains to point out it has no plans to offer a hybrid Roma. Soft ‘n’ bouncy GT or front-engined sports car? Naturally, Ferrari is adamant that the Roma is both. ‘The difference between the two is quite theoretical,’ explains Leiters. ‘In the past, a GT was a sports car you could use every day. That’s exactly what we have in the Roma.’ He also refutes suggestions that his team’s done little more than pop a roof on the Portofino. ‘The architecture is shared with Portofino but 70% of the chassis and the spaceframe is new or substantially modified,’ says Leiters. ‘The spaceframe is 10% stiffer than the Portofino’s, plus you have the roof bringing additional stiffness. Of course, we worked to reduce the weight as well increase the stiffness. [Ferrari claims a 1570kg kerb weight for the Roma, versus 1664kg for the folding hard-top Portofino]. The spring and damping rates are different also, because of the reduced weight and lower centre of gravity.’ With its engine pushed right back in the nose, for a front/mid-engined layout, the Roma promises to be a serious driving tool, despite the GT billing. Likely to feature adaptive dampers as standard in the UK, the car also boasts a lower centre of gravity than the Portofino and less weight to hold it back. In line with the car’s billing as a Ferrari for people previously too afraid to buy a Ferrari, the Roma also gets Ferrari’s latest suite of assistance systems; Side Slip Control 6.0 and Ferrari Dynamic Enhancer, to keep giddy pilots out of the wall while also making Gilles Villeneuves of all of us. And the inside story? The all new cabin uses a twin cockpit them, with snug environs for both driver and front passenger, with the passenger also getting their own digital display. The drivers gets Ferrari’s new, more digitised steering wheel and the ultra-crisp new driver’s display, a multi-function, very beautiful 16-inch cluster with three-dimensional curvature and the ability to show the standard Ferrari display – giant rev counter, flanked by everything else – or, for example, a giant map instead, a la Audi Virtual Cockpit. On the centre console you’ll find the 8.4-inch vertical touchscreen. This similarly crisp interface debuted on the SF90, and sits above a neat layout of powertrain controls designed to echo the old open gate of Ferrari’s great manual ’boxes. The two rear seats are firmly occasional use only, with the back of the driver’s seat already up against their leading edge if the driver’s even remotely tall. What’s the competition? Tricky. Fans of the weather – good and bad – will look to the Portofino, or wait for the new Porsche 911 Turbo S convertible perhaps. Think front/mid-engined and you think of Aston’s (significantly cheaper) Vantage, which weighs 1530kg dry with all the light-weighting options in place, versus 1472kg for the Roma without fluids. The standard Vantage uses a 503bhp AMG-sourced twin-turbo V8 and can sprint 0-62mph in 3.6sec, and the £150k Vantage AMR is no more powerful and actually slower to 62mph in manual guise. Like the Roma, the DB11 is a front/mid-engined 2+2. It comes in £150k, 503bhp V8 or £175k, 630bhp V12 AMR flavours. Then there are the two-seat, mid-engined options, notably the idiosyncratically Honda NSX hybrid and McLaren’s new GT, which is close on price, makes more power and weighs about the same as the Ferrari Roma, but lacks the second row of seats.
  4. A widow who lost $280,000 after handing the money to an acquaintance to make a Chinese property investment has lost her legal bid to get it back. Madam Lim Choo Eng's husband died in 2012 when a Ferrari crashed into his taxi and she used some of the money she got after his death to invest in a plot of land in China, giving it to Madam Koh Siew Eng - including a $50,000 deposit within four days of meeting her. When she realised she had been tricked, she tried to sue Madam Koh for a refund - but Madam Koh contended that she was just a "mouthpiece" facilitating the transaction and had transferred the money to a third party in China who granted Madam Lim a sub-lease for the plot. In a judgment on Friday (Aug 23), a High Court judge dismissed Madam Lim's case, even though he found she was honest and he believed her testimony more than Madam Koh's. Justice Choo Han Teck said Madam Lim's claim of misrepresentation must fail as she had not pleaded that there was a contract, oral or written, between her and Madam Koh. "Although it seems to me that Lim appeared to have acted in reliance on Koh's representation, and might even have come to an agreement with her, none of that was pleaded and the court cannot write their contract for them," said the judge. Justice Choo will hear arguments on costs at a later date, but said he did not think Madam Lim should have to bear any legal costs for the case. Madam Lim's husband, Mr Cheng Teck Hock, died aged 52 after a speeding Ferrari crashed into his taxi at the junction of Rochor Road and Victoria Street. The Ferrari's driver, Chinese national Ma Chi, also died in the accident. Mr Ma's insurers offered advance payouts for third-party claims while public donations poured in for Mr Cheng's family. In 2014, Madam Lim decided to invest some money through Madam Koh. The two women became acquainted through their respective sons, who were friends. Madam Lim said Madam Koh claimed to be a successful investor and offered her a joint investment opportunity to buy land in China which was to be redeveloped and sold for a profit. Between March and August 2014, Madam Lim transferred more than $280,000 to Madam Koh and Madam Koh's sister. In August 2014, Madam Lim and Madam Koh flew to China to meet Mr Lu Jinlin, who was supposed to lease the land from a village committee. He did not show Madam Lim the land because of "bad weather" but she was assured by Mr Lu and Madam Koh that she would get a stake. In March 2015, Mr Lu came to Singapore and signed a document granting Madam Lim a 70-year sub-lease for part of the land. Madam Lim did not get any more information about the deal and said it was only in 2017 that she realised Madam Koh did not invest in the land. Madam Koh said Madam Lim was always aware that she was only an agent; she denied having made claims about a joint investment. She said the money was transferred to Mr Lu and his family between April 2014 and October 2016. Madam Lim's lawyer, Mr Renganathan Shankar, argued that Madam Koh had orchestrated the entire scheme as she was aware of Madam Lim's finances due to the publicity surrounding her husband's death. He argued that Madam Lim was entitled to rescind the contract or to damages. But Justice Choo said Madam Koh was not a party to the sub-lease, a contract between Madam Lim and Mr Lu. The judge added that the sub-lease was "highly suspect". Unfortunately, the authenticity of the document was not challenged, nor did Madam Lim check with the land owners as to whether her sub-lease was recognised.
  5. The president of the FIA, Jean Todt, has revealed that Michael Schumacher is making good progress in his recovery. The champion had a near-fatal skiing accident in 2013. This is a surprising news as Schumacher's family has been very private about his health updates. However, The Sun, revealed that Todt often visits Schumacher and watched the recent German Grand Prix with him on TV. “I’m always careful with such statements, but it’s true. I saw the race together with Michael Schumacher at his home in Switzerland,” Todt said. “Michael is in the best hands and is well looked after in his house. He does not give up and keeps fighting.” Sadly, Todt revealed that Schumacher has problems communicating with him. “His family is fighting just as much and of course our friendship cannot be the same as it once was. Just because there’s no longer the same communication as before. He continues to fight. And his family is fighting the same way.”
  6. Ferrari wants to change its range of models to push itself into new segments of the market like its latest offering, the SF90 Stradale. You could say that throughout the years, Ferrari had a rather predictable family of models and would simply update these models without venturing into different niches. While this isn't necessary a bad thing considering how successful it has been so far, Ferrari wants to break the mold and be a lot less foreseeable. “What we are trying to do is become a lot less predictable. We are currently working to redesign our products of the future,” Ferrari's Commercial and Marketing Chief Enrico Galliera revealed in an interview with Autocar. “For example, the [recently revealed] SF90 Stradale is not a car that was in our product range previously. It’s a completely new car, new technology, a new segment. It is what we are calling a ‘range supercar’. It’s not a LaFerrari. But it does supercar performance – and is available to a wider range of customers." Ferrari has previously confirmed that it will reveal five new models this year with the F8 Tributo and SF90 Stradale being part of the five.

    Fake Ferrari and Lambo

    And we thought only in China, but in Brazil too! (I am referring to clever builders) Maybe if they had replace the "bo" in Lamborghini with "pa" they would not be arrested. https://www.scmp.com/news/world/americas/article/3018907/busted-inside-fake-ferrari-factory-sold-shamborghinis-us45000 Busted: inside the fake Ferrari factory that sold ‘Shamborghinis’ for US$45,000Police said the cars were being offered on social media for a small fraction of the price of the real thing Associated Press Published: 9:13am, 17 Jul, 2019 3 Brazilian police dismantled the clandestine workshop run by a father and son who assembled fake Ferraris and Lamborghinis to order.

  8. Ferrari has been silent about its upcoming SUV which has been in development for sometime. You can expect it to get more power than the Urus. The car, developed under the Purosangue name (Italian for ‘thoroughbred’ or ‘pure blood’) has been confirmed by Ferrari last year. Yet to be seen by anyone outside its factory gates, the SUV will likely push the performance of such vehicles to new heights, Car and Driver reported. It is believed that the Purosangue will be powered by a V8 engine from its current stable of powertrain options and will likely be paired to some kind of hybrid system. Unless Ferrari comes out with a revolutionary platform for the car, the electric motors should be powering the SUV's front wheels while the engine turns the wheels behind. With all the major luxury brands having at least one SUV in their line-up, it is only a matter of time before Ferrari joined the party.
  9. Wonder how the new 986bhp Ferrari SF90's hybrid powertrain works? The Italian company has released a video showing it in its various driving modes. For those who aren't aware of what is powering Ferrari's latest product, the SF90 is equipped with a twin-turbocharged 4.0-litre V8 engine that makes 769bhp and 800Nm of torque on its own. It is matched to three electric motors, one of which is fitted between the V8 and the eight-speed dual-clutch transmission while the other two are located at the front axle, bringing the total power output to a staggering 986bhp. That said, when the driver is in the mood to be green, the supercar can be driven in front-wheel drive mode with the front two electric motors for up to 25 km. Despite being a hybrid, the car only weighs 1,570kg, allowing it complete the century sprint in 2.5 seconds. It will then touch 200km/h in 6.7 seconds before hitting its maximum speed at 340km/h.
  10. Come come, make a wild guess, how cheap can a functioning Ferrari be? ... It is a real deal, not some fake stuff ... Not the zhnged type or wanna be too ... Now, sit tight, the answer might make you fall off from your chair ... You Could Buy This Ferrari 599 GTB For Just US$250 (~S$340) In China This is a Ferrari 599 GTB which could sell for as little as $250. No, your eyes are not deceiving you. This particular Ferrari is currently in the possession of police in Dongguan, China after it was involved in an accident. It is claimed that the Italian supercar was uninsured and unregistered when police got their hands on it. This means it cannot be registered or driven anywhere in China and is being sold as scrap metal. “There is no information about this vehicle at the Vehicle Management Office, so it’s non-transferable and can’t be driven,” a spokeswoman from the Dongguan Third People’s Court said to The Sun. “That’s why it’s so cheap—we viewed it as scrap metal, and its scrap evaluation came to $347 (2,430 RMB). We then offered a 30 percent discount on that for our auction.” Images provided of the car show it covered in a thick layer of dust but the engine is said to be in working order. With a thorough exterior and interior detail, the 599 could look as good as new. No mention has been made about the vehicle’s mileage but let’s be honest, the mileage doesn’t matter. This is a Ferrari which will have a starting bid of just $250 when the auction commences in the coming days. Even if it’s the highest-mileage 599 on earth, it’s still the bargain of the century. It’s unclear if the car can be exported out of China and registered for road use elsewhere or if it must stay on Chinese shores. If it can’t leave the country, there’s still a lot of money to be made from the car. For example, the winning bidder could strip it down and sell it for parts. 拍卖一辆法拉利599,起拍价仅1701元,车友:按斤卖? 在人们的印象当中,一辆法拉利的价格少则几百万,多则上千万,就算是二手的法拉利也是普通人买不起的。但是最近有一位车友就看到有人拍卖法拉利599,心里正想着即使拍卖的话价格也不低,但令人没想到的是,起拍价仅1701元。为什么会这么便宜呢? 如果是买新车的话,法拉利599 GTB的价格大概在500万左右,而现在的起拍价只要1000多元,所以很多车友就很疑惑,难道是按斤卖吗?于是我们又算了一笔账,这一台车子的重量大概在1.6吨左右,如果是按照废铁的价格来算的话,简直是比卖废铁还要便宜。 后来我们才知道,原来这款车之所以价格会这么低,就是因为它没有任何的登记和购买手续,就连车牌也是伪造的,所以没有办法过户,只能按照零部件来拍卖。如果有人买的话,顶多是将它买回去拆成零件卖。 东莞一辆法拉利599被拍卖,起拍价1701元,5毛一斤还不如可乐瓶贵 但是就在前段时间,在阿里拍卖的网站上爆出了一款法拉利599拍卖新闻,看到拍卖价格所有人都不淡定了,印象中的法拉利都是几百万的价格,但是这款法拉利的网上拍卖价格竟然仅仅为1701元人民币,原定拍卖时间为6月20号上午10点开始,但是此车放在网络上仅仅一天的时间,就有四万多人围观,并且还有377人交了340元保证金,3164人设置提醒,加价幅度为30元,拍卖车辆所在地为东莞市横沥镇村头昌浩停车场内,说实话,这有可能是法拉利拍卖史上最便宜的一次,无疑是对这款豪车的侮辱。 东莞一辆法拉利599被拍卖,起拍价1701元,5毛一斤还不如可乐瓶贵。得知此消息后,很多网友都纷纷表示,这可能是这辈子距离法拉利最近的一次了,很多人都准备了3000大洋跃跃欲试,但是近日得知消息,当时这款车是因为特殊原因被东莞市第三法院查封,特此放在司法拍卖网进行拍卖,但后期因为当事人达成了执行和解协议,所以无需拍卖财产了,阿里拍卖便撤销了这次网络拍卖,因此,很多网友的法拉利梦便因此破碎了。 当年此车进入中国,亮相北京车展的时候,有多少人挤破了头颅就为了看它一眼,能买得起的人却屈指可数,在99%的人眼中,这是典型的别人家的车子,无奈,如今时过境迁,这款车落到了1701元就被拍卖的下场,不免让人唏嘘不已,曾经的王者就此落寞。要知道此车重达1.5吨多,按照重量来算,这个车子的均价在0.5元/斤,还不如可乐瓶贵呢,而且这次拍卖也因为各种证件不齐全,不能过户,当作零件拍卖。
  11. Despite Lewis Hamilton's team winning all seven races so far in the 2019 calendar year, the Formula 1 champion is still weary of his rivals in Ferrari. To be more exact, he feels that Ferrari’s engine features a power mode that his Mercedes does not have. “They were so quick on the straights,” Hamilton remarked in an interview with Autosport. “They definitely have another power mode that we currently don’t have. So, all of a sudden they turn up the power and he (Vettel) pulls away massively on the straight, even if I have DRS open.” Certain that he isn't just talking nonsense, the British driver pointed out that the evidence whereby his team was losing up to six tenths of a second on the straights compared to Ferrari in the Canada's qualifying session. “In the race I know all of a sudden they pick up a lot of pace on the straights [as well] but that’s the name of the game,” “They’ve clearly done a great job with their power unit.” he added.
  12. Reviews for the Ferrari 488 Pista Spider has started surfacing online and U.K. publication, Autocar has managed to get their hands on one too... The Ferrari 458 Speciale Aperta was a very much well-liked open-top ferrari, with it being the last topless Ferrari that is equipped with a naturally aspirated V8 engine. So would replacing it with a turbocharged unit in 488 Pista Spider make it as good a drive as its predecessor? Watch and find out in their video below!
  13. 20th Century Fox has released the first movie trailer for the upcoming automotive movie, Ford v Ferrari. Starring Matt Damon as Caroll Shelby and Christian Bale as Ken Miles, it tells the story of the fight between Ford and Ferrari to win the 24 Hours of Le Mans in 1966. This is the fight which gave birth to the legendary Ford GT40 and we all can't wait to catch the movie in theatres when it opens on the 15th of November.
  14. Ferrari SF90 Stradale is a 986-horsepower plug-in hybrid sources: https://www.autoblog.com/2019/05/29/ferrari-sf90-stradale-official/ The most powerful road-going Ferrari car – ever The Ferrari SF90 Stradale has just been revealed, and the most important thing to know is that it's Ferrari's most powerful production car yet with 986 horsepower. The next most important thing to know is that it's a plug-in hybrid with a turbocharged V8. The powertrain features Ferrari's most powerful V8 yet making 769 horsepower and 590 pound-feet of torque on its own. It also has three electric motors with two at the front and one in the back, and combined they can provide up to 217 horsepower. This also means that the SF90 Stradale is all-wheel-drive. Getting power from the internal combustion powertrain to the wheels is an 8-speed dual-clutch transmission that shifts 100 milliseconds faster than the transmission in the 488 Pista, but it also weighs about 22 pounds less than Ferrari's existing 7-speed dual-clutch transmission. This is due in part to not needing a reverse gear, since reverse is handled by the front motors. In total, the SF90 weighs in at 3,461 pounds. And at 155 mph, the aerodynamics add 860 pounds of downforce. When everything is deployed on pavement, it hits 62 mph in just 2.5 seconds. And for Ferraristi, it lapped the Fiorano test track in 1 minute and 19 seconds. Of course being a plug-in hybrid, it does have a full electric range. It's a bit short at 15.5 miles. Then again, this isn't entirely about fuel economy; the electric motors allows for torque vectoring, and provide extra traction on launch and help fill in any throttle lag from the gas engine. The interior is high-tech, too. The instrument cluster is a huge 16-inch display. The steering wheel now features touch pads for controlling the instrument cluster, too.

    Ferrari F8 Tributo replaces the 488 GTB

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=y12f7NxFgkw The Ferrari 488 GTB says so long this year to make room for its successor, the F8 Tributo. In a pair of new videos, fans of the Prancing Horse can be acclimated with some of the changes made to the supercar before it hits the streets. Up first, performance. The engine is still a traditional V-8 ridden by a pair of turbochargers. The F8 Tributo has the highest-output Ferrari V-8 ever with 710 horsepower on tap. It will take just 2.9 seconds to go from 0-62 mph and the top speed sits at 211 mph. Even better, the F8 Tributo is lighter compared to the 488 by some 88 pounds. The weight savings come from the engine itself, a Lexan rear windshield, and a carbon-fiber rear spoiler. Ferrari also highlighted the "Ferrari Dynamic Enhancer+" system that adjusts brake pressure at each caliper to control the F8 Tributo's svelte body better. The system should help drivers more easily unlock the car's performance. There's also a smaller-diameter steering wheel inside for a sportier feeling. Moving onto aerodynamics, the Tributo separates further from the 488. Foremost, the front air duct comes from the company's Formula One learnings and helps to cut through air and keep the car slippery. At the rear, the wider spoiler creates greater vertical load. Rear flux deflectors reduce drag. Taking a look underneath the car reveals a nearly flat underbody that works with the front diffuser to channel more cool air into the brakes. The rear diffuser also houses active aero elements to help boost performance when needed around a corner, or in a straight line. Back up front, new radiators from the 488 Challenge improve cooling while further reducing drag and a new air intake design helps ensure cooler air is fed to the engine to complement the car's power increase to 710 hp. Overall, the F8 Tributo is 10 percent more aerodynamic than the 488 GTB. Not to mention, it looks quite good too. Check it out in the videos above.

    Formula 1 (2018)

    no more AMDL grid girls ... you took away the orgasmistic V8 sound and now the girls too ... what-the-fish ... pretty sure will flip prata later let's call a spade a spade big neh neh + long legs + sports car = perfect formula it's not a disrespect to girl ... it's a RESPECT ... guys knee went soft ... lol
  18. Saw this story on women who drive fast cars - Ferrari, Lamborghini, Aston Martin with nice photos for guys that like fast cars, and guys that like pretty women story in Chinese, Google translated the 1st page was quite acceptable https://www.iconsingapore.com/people/meet-6-women-who-all-love-driving-fast-cars/ ---------------- "I often think that the car has its own personality. My car should be a man. It is my companion on the road and it protects me." If Ferrari or Lamborghini are the active young boys in the sports car industry, then the British century-old Aston Martin is a mature gentleman. According to statistics, Singapore had only 196 Aston Martins as of 2017, which is very rare. However, Germaine Tan describes her car as Aston Martin Vantage S. “Lamborghini is a sports, edgy car. Aston Martin first reminds you of elegance and style. It is a symbol of luxury and status. You may often see Lamborghini on the road, but you will not be too familiar with Aston Martin. So it will naturally attract your attention." Many car lovers become caring for the other half. For Germaine, the car is her best friend. She said: "I often feel that the car has its own personality. My car should be a man. It is my companion on the road and protects me." This is the first sports car in her life. The dark-gray body is low-key and she particularly sprays the rims into red roses, adding a touch of softness to the masculine body. Aston Martin has always been known to be steady, for the 22-year-old Germaine may not pull the wind. In this regard, she had different opinions: "Young people of the same age really like high-profile sports cars, but I like the service of Aston Martin. They are very kind and they often hold events. These activities are very good. The members of the club are very happy and I feel very comfortable.” The car is to her and it is like the second home. Before work every day, this is the private area where she is free to be alone with her. “I will let my mind drift or empty in the car; the rear compartment of the car is my daily sundries. And with the unique taste of the leather chair, I feel as if I'm comfortable at home." When she was shooting, she watched as she removed a big puppet, a box with a coat, a water tank and other miscellaneous items from the car. Can imagine how comfortable she usually is in the car. Young and frivolous, although Germaine had a sports car, she did not have much experience in car racing. At most, she only went to Malaysia with the Aston Martin team. "The car was really stable when it turned, it gave me a sense of security, let me know it is very reliable and will protect me, just like my boyfriend." Then she was amazed by her adjective. Ha ha. Why does such a delicate girl like a sports car? She said that when you step on the gas pedal and hear the wonderful sound of the engine, you will feel a sudden burst of strength. "This power comes from the car."

  20. Ferrari SUV, due in 2021, won’t have visible rear doorsThe Italian brand continues to deny the existence of Ferrari SUV, but reports say it's coming in 2021 with hidden rear doors https://www.autocar.co.uk/car-news/new-cars/ferrari-suv-due-2021-won%E2%80%99t-have-visible-rear-doors The long-rumoured Ferrari SUV is still on the cards, according to auto analyst Max Warburton, who claims the future model is being called an FUV (Ferrari Utility Vehicle) and does not have visible rear doors. Last month, Ferrari’s commercial boss Enrico Galliera told Autocar: “We are not producing an SUV, because an SUV is not a sports car – it can be fast, but it’s not a sports car. We are not producing a four-door because, while a four-door can be fast, it’s not a sports car.” He added: “Ferrari has to remain consistent, doing what we know to do, which is delivering cars that are able to deliver emotion. Sports cars.” However, Warburton claims it is a “question of semantics”, stating that while Ferrari management continues to tell investors that it will not build an SUV or a model with four doors, the rear doors will not be visible and will instead “use a clever hidden arrangement”. The model, expected to launch in 2021 and cost about £250,000, would rival cars such as the Lamborghini Urus, Rolls-Royce Cullinanand Aston Martin DBX. Warburton estimates that 2000 to 3000 units would be sold per year. While Ferrari continues to be evasive on the topic, a more practical model has huge potential for the Italian brand, given the trend for high-riding vehicles and the popularity of ultra-luxury SUVs worldwide, and particularly in the growing Chinese market. Competitors Lamborghini, Rolls-Royce and Aston Martin are already far into development of their respective SUVs, while Bentley’s Bentayga accounts for a significant portion of its sales.

  22. New Ferrari Portofino Unveiled, To Replace California T https://auto.ndtv.com/news/new-ferrari-portofino-unveiled-to-replace-california-t-1741059 The new Ferrari Portofino will replace the California T and will feature a 592 bhp Twin-Turbo V8 engine. The front engined sportscar is the most powerful retractable hardtop convertible in the world and will make its official debut at the Frankfurt Auto Show. Ferrari has just revealed the long awaited replacement for the California range - the brand new Ferrari Portofino! The new Ferrari Portofino, named after one of Italy's prettiest costal towns, also gets a new shade of red - Rosso Portofino to go along with the new car. The new Ferrari Portofino will pack a front mounted 592 bhp V8 twin-turbo engine making it the most powerful retractable hard top convertible sportscar in the world. The new Ferrari Porofino will make its official public debut at the upcoming Frankfurt International Motor Show next month and will eventually make it to India too. The new Ferrari Portofino takes the proportions of the California T and makes everything much sharper and more aggressive. The front facia features a smiling look as most other Ferraris get currently with the large central grille and sleek sharp LED headlamps. The front bumper also gets large twin secondary intakes while the front fender gets air fins and a vent to channel the air out of the front wheel arches. The profile on the new Ferrari Portofino is sharper and features a carbon fibre side skirt while the iconic rear wheel arch haunches are accentuated and lead into the tail lamps. The rear design, often the most criticised on the Ferrari California family has been completely refreshed and now is substantially more aggressive. The new Car features twin tail lamps that are set apart and a quad exhaust setup while the boot lid in a lot more contoured now. The large bootlid that featured on the California still features on the Portofino too and the metal folding roof folds neatly into the boot. As we mentioned earlier, the Ferrari Portofino will feature a front mounted twin-Turbo V8 engine from the same family that won the engine of the year in 2016 and 2017. The 3.8-litre V8 engine makes 592 bhp of peak power and 760 Nm of peak torque. The Portofino will get from 0-100 kmph in just 3.5 seconds and will have a top speed of 320 kmph. The new Portofino also gets an electronic rear differential, electronic power steering and the Ferrari signature magnetorheological suspension that uses iron filings in the suspension to stiffen or soften the damping instantly at the touch of a button. On the interior front, the Ferrari Portofino gets the new Ferrari family look with the large centrally mounted 10.2-inch touchscreen and a separate screen for the passenger side too. The Ferrari Portofino is also a 2+2 seating configuration which means that it can technically fit four adults. The Portofino also features a new wind deflector design that helps cut down air flow inside the cabin by up to 30% as compared to the older California T.
