Ferrari GTC4 Lusso T 2019

Ferrari’s GTC4 Lusso replaced the FF a couple of years ago. In a series of very amusing events, it has taken me this long to get a hold of one. I specifically wanted the twin-turbo rear-wheel drive Lusso T because I suspected it would be brilliant. The Ferrari FF was a special kind of Ferrari. Twelve screaming cylinders, all-wheel drive, a cabin you can fit four people in and, for some reason that will never make sense to me, a boot that fits golf clubs. Mostly because I can’t imagine…

Ferrari 488’s Fate Is Sealed – Welcome to the F8 Tributo

The 488 is dead – long live the Ferrari F8 Tributo. Well, that’s a bit dramatic, but there you are. The time has come for Maranello to replace the wonderful 488 with the next-generation of mid-engined V8 supercar. The F8 Tributo (what do we think of the name?) will take Ferrari into the 2020s and is based on the hardcore 488 Pista. The most obvious change is the inclusion of the Pista’s S-Duct at the front. Providing a crap ton (okay, fifteen percent) more downforce, the S-Duct adds further aero…

Ferrari Portofino 2018 Review

The Ferrari Portofino is Maranello’s follow-up to the California T. Like rival Lamborghini’s Huracan, the Cali had some inane detractors who said it wasn’t a real Ferrari.

And the company was expecting a lot of women as well as new customers to buy into the Ferrari brand. Boom. Off went the nutcases. And they were all mostly wrong. California Dreams Rumour has it that the first modern California (it’s a name…

Ferrari 488 Spider Review

Ferrari 488 Spider Review The Ferrari 488 GTB is the benchmark. Ferrari’s mid-engined sports cars have been the top of the pile for decades. This latest iteration is the latest in a line that started with the 1968 Dino (don’t start). The mid-engined baby quickly became the standard, with the bigger midships V12s fading away (Aventador excepted) to front-engines. The 488 Spider is another in a rather shorter line of cars – the hardcore, mid-engined drop-top sports car from Ferrari. But it’s a line that’s as iconic as its coupes.…

The Ferrari 488 Pista Has Landed: Updated

Updated with new useful tidbits from the Geneva Show release. Because motor shows are now just after-parties for pre-show press releases, we’ve got the Ferrari 488 Pista for you. Based on the Scuderia’s outstanding 488 GTB, it’s another in the line that gave us the 360 Challenge Stradale, 430 Scuderia and 458 Speciale. Ferrari 488 Pista Maranello’s press team says the Pista has evolved straight out of the FIA World Endurance Championship GTE series success. Ferrari has won five championships in the last six years, so that’s not a bad…
