I have a new life goal and that is to race a couple of laps around the Goodwood Circuit in something old and fast. After, of course, I get better at driving. And racing. And gain more courage. Like, a ton more courage.
Ferraris are far too expensive for a normal person to own, right? What if I told you that you could own your very own “Ferrari” “F430” “Scuderia” (winking aggressively) for the price of a well-pptioned Honda Civic? Before you press the panic button on your car keys, check out this Craigslist post for a Ferrari F430…
This is it: the last Ferrari LaFerrari Aperta. Presumably, Ferrari will make no more after this one. Unless something crazy happens, like Steve Jobs coming back to life and demanding one. Or something.
That headline was mean. I’m mean. I’m sorry, I don’t know why I’m like this. Maybe someone teased me too much as a child. This video showing how Lego built a life-size replica of a Ferrari Formula One car isn’t even that great, I just wanted a chance to be mean. I’m sorry, again.
Formula One driver Sebastian Vettel just signed a new three-year contract to stay at Ferrari, reports NBC Sports. Ferrari made the announcement after the final practice session for this weekend’s race at Spa-Francorchamps, confirming what we all expected to happen after Ferrari announced they’d be keeping Vettel’s…
Ferrari did it once before with the Ferrari TheFerrari and now it’s doing it again with the Ferrari TheFerrari Open: it’s building one last car and proceeds from the sale will go towards charity. Angelic!
This, right here, is a very rare Ferrari. It’s also a very dirty Ferrari. Its status as a running, driving automobile has likely been questionable for several decades, but it’s expected to sell for more than $2 million at auction next month.
I really like using the words ‘entry-level’ and ‘Ferrari’ in the same headline. They sound weird together, but it’s genuinely a thing that exists, like “wheat-free bread” or “sexy Dalek.” Ferrari’s newest bottom-of-the-line car replaces the California, and is a very handsome 598 horsepower V8 2+2 called the Portofino.
Congratulations, fans of mumbling weirdo in Formula One: Kimi Räikkönen is staying at Ferrari, reports Racer. Ferrari announced hat they would be keeping the 2007 F1 world champion today, and while they didn’t expressly say that they would be keeping his teammate Sebastian Vettel, it’s a good hint that Vettel’s…
Driving a 1978 Ferrari 308 with zero engine noise was weird. Using a regular three-pedal five-speed manual gearbox connected to an electric motor was even odder. But Electric GT’s EV-swapped Ferrari has a distinctive driving experience that, once you wrap your brain around it, is uniquely satisfying.
There’s no greater joy than taking a race car out on normal roads. Your car has the power to instantly make someone’s day—well, except the person who calls the cops because it’s too loud. But hey, it’s street legal, right? Pro drifter Ryan Tuerck went out for the day in his hood-less Ferrari 458 V8-powered Toyota GT86…
The 550 Maranello was Ferrari’s answer to the insanity that was the Diablo over at Lamborghini. Where the Diablo zigged, Ferrari zagged, developing a front-engine, clean looking sports car with a beautiful new V12. So what the hell happened to it?
Ferrari is apparently still arguing with itself over bringing back the Dino as a new entry level sports car, but there’s hesitation over brand image. They don’t want to start to look cheap, you know, like Porsche.
Ferrari has reportedly lost the rights to use the Testarossa name after a German court ruled in favor of a toy company that wants to use it for bicycles and shavers. I’m not sure what the “red head” translation of the name has anything to do with bikes, but I could see the argument for trimmers.

Manor Formula One racing team recently sold off a bunch of its crap in an auction, and YouTuber Peter Bjorck managed to snag a bit of advanced Ferrari engine tech: namely an intercooler he planned to install into his Lamborghini. Here’s a look at the innards of that liquid-to-air Masterpiece Of A Heat Exchanger.
Italy. A country of great food, great culture, and great driving. Well okay, two out of three isn’t so bad. In the five days I spent in Tuscany I fell in love with the country that gave us gelato, bolognese sauce, and of course, some of the best dream cars ever made.

Sebastian Vettel just set the fastest recorded lap ever at the Hungaroring during qualifying for tomorrow’s Hungarian Grand Prix.
Ever purchase something above-par—say, a nice pen—and then go on to lose it later that day? Agh, that’s the worst. Ever drop $288,000 on a Ferrari F430 Scuderia and then go on to crash it an hour later? No? That’s what happened on Thursday in the United Kingdom, and, man, I cannot imagine how the driver feels today.
