The Sultry Ferrari F80 Concept

Ferrari F80 concept

This could be the thirstiest looking Ferrari concept ever. The Ferrari F80 concept may have lost its limelight to the reality that is the LaFerrari, but this Prancing Horse most assuredly has got it going on in all the right places!

The Ferrari F80 concept at a glance:

  • She was designed by Italian Adriano Raeli. Raeli is an Art Center College of Design graduate with a passion for all that is fast and beautiful.
  • The powertrain would be a hybrid system pairing a KERS with a combustion engine. The estimated result would sit at around 1,200 horses, or equal to the Bugatti Veyron supercar.
  • The V12 would be replaced with a twin-turbocharged V8 kicking out 900 horses. That engine mated to the KERS with 300 provides the 1,200 total output. Feelings vary on replacing that glorious V12, but it is the end result that matters, is it not?
  • Curb weight for this nice lady would be a light 1,763 pounds with a 2-seat layout.
  • Performance estimates are 2.2 seconds for the 0-60 mile per hour sprint with a top out of around 310. Yes, that is 310 miles per hour. Many supercars barely pass the 200 MPH mark, making this incredible.
  • Still hating? The Ferrari F40 packed a twin-turbo V8.

The lovely Ferrari F80 is but a concept, but with such promise in the power arena and such a stunning shape, it would be a tragedy not to build her. With so much interest in LaFerrari and so many turned away from buying her, having something like the F80 around to dry the tears would be kinda cool. read more

Adrenaline Rush:Track Only LaFerrari XX Coming

LaFerrari XX

For the Ferrari fans, there will soon be a track only version of the hyperbeast that is the LaFerrari. She will be dubbed the LaFerrari XX, with the XX being a designation assigned to the experimental Prancing Horses in the stable.

LaFerrari will have a track-only sister very soon. 

LaFerrari XX will join the likes of the FXX, FXX Evolution, 599XX and 599XX Evolution in its development process. With the LaFerrari already a stunning specimen of what a supreme hypercar can be, it should be equally intoxicating in track format. Antonello Coletta, head of Ferrari’s new Sporting Activity Department, spilled the good news. Coletta stated the following: “Now we are working on the new hypercar for the circuit, the LaFerrari XX. I hope that the new car will arrive on the circuit in January or February of next year.” read more

Ferrari 458 Monte Carlo: Does Chevy Know About This?

Ferrari 458 Monte Carlo

The next gen Ferrari 458 is getting a bit of a twist, and a well-known name, if tips are true. Rumor has it the next version will drop the ‘Italia’ from its name and pick up a city, which will likely be confused with another car. Orders are reportedly being taken for the Ferrari 458 Monte Carlo concept.

The Ferrari 458 Monte Carlo concept (not pictured above–photos do not exist yet). So does Chevy know about this?

This is not the first time Ferrari has used a previously popular and well-known automotive designation for one of its models. Ford sued over the use of “F150” when the Ferrari F150 racer emerged (Not that a sleek Ferrari racecar could ever be mistaken for a robust Ford pickup…or that they even share a target market). Not a brand to move slow, Ferrari is taking orders for the Ferrari Monte Carlo concept. read more

Paris Auto Show Ferrari FF Features Panoramic Roof

Paris Auto Show Ferrari FF

Ferrari has been busy publicizing its jaw-dropping FF hatchback, including feats like invading Maranello. This year, the Paris Auto Show Ferrari FF with a panoramic roof took center stage and has clearly created a stir.  Initial reactions to a Ferrari hatchback were predominantly shock, though once absorbed, the FF has actually gained a bit of traction in world markets.

This year’s FF is decidedly sleeker and less hatchy

The panoramic roof on the 2013 Ferrari FF runs the length of the vehicle and is comprised of a special reflective glass (LowE). The glass provides a genuine open-air convertible feel without the unwanted elements. Aside from blocking wind and rain, the glass roof allows more light to enter the car, showing off its awesome cockpit! read more
