In April 2019, RM Sotheby’s is going to hold auctions that draw from a private collection of “youngtimers” – ’80s and ’90s cars from BMW, Mercedes-Benz, and more. Chris Harris was lucky enough to take a tour of the impressive and extensive collection.
A bold chronograph inspired by the instrument gauges on Ferrari’s famed thoroughbred sports cars. The 46mm watch features three inner dials, and a tachymeter bezel for calculating speed based on time. In Cherry Red or Electric Yellow. Save for a limited time at Massdrop.
Ferrari’s limited edition Monza SP1 and Monza SP2 sports cars were inspired by the carmaker’s racing barchettas from the late 1940’s to the 1950’s. The SP1 is a single seater, while the SP2 seats two. Each has an 808hp V12 engine that lets them rocket from 0 to 62mph in 2.9s.
The drop-top variant of Ferrari’s insanely powerful V8 twin-turbo 488 Pista. Like the coupe, this lightweight Italian stallion makes 710 hp, hits 62 mph in 2.85 sec, and handles impeccably, all while the wind blows through your hair on the way to its 211 mph top speed.
Ferrari gave premiere coffee table book publisher Taschen full access to its archives as well as those of some of its most avid collectors to create this 514-page masterpiece. The Art Edition comes in an engine-inspired aluminum display case designed by Marc Newson.
A special edition 488 focused on lightweighting and increased performance. It weighs nearly 200 pounds less than the 488 GTB, has beefed up aero, and upgraded turbos which help the V8 make 710 hp, launching this bad boy from 0 to 62 mph in just 2.85s and a top speed of 211mph.
There’s only one official Ferrari Testarossa Spider. But this conversion by German coachbuilder Lorenz & Rankl is as close to the real deal as it gets, with the top hidden in a rear compartment. Only five units were made, and this is the fourth of the batch.
This tourer from the prancing horse replaces the California T. It packs a 591 hp 3.9L turbo V8 that launches the car from 0-to-62 mph in 3.5 s, and a retractable hardtop which gives it coupe looks when the wind isn’t blowing through your hair on the way up to its 199 mph top speed.
Beyond its awesome V12, what makes the Ferrari 575 Superamerica special is its rotating hardtop that lies flat with a flip of a switch, and electronically-controlled transparency to vary the light coming in. Our friends DriveWithDave show off this special car in action.
Our friends at DriveWithDave spent some time on the road with a vintage Ferrari 330 GTC. Its 300 hp V12 made it a fast, comfortable cruiser designed to carry the well-heeled to their destination in style. Luxurious, powerful, and one of Ferrari’s best GTs, only 600 were made.
Drive With Dave recently spent some time behind the wheel of the Ferrari 488 GTB. 661 hp, gobs of torque, and incredible aerodynamics come together in a sleek, chiseled exterior. Drop into the driver’s seat, hit the starter, and you are part of a legend stretching back to 1949.
Going under the hammer on 1/19/17, this particular Ferrari 340 competed at the 1952 Mille Miglia, 24 Hours of Le Mans and the Targa Florio. Petrolicious spoke with current owner Michael Stehle about what it’s like to possess a car with such a rich heritage.
Carfection visits the garage of Ferrari’s Corse Clienti, which sells some of the carmaker’s race-driven Formula 1 cars as well as the track-only FXX series. Because the vehicles are hard to maintain, most owners leave their purchases with Ferrari instead of taking them home.
You’ll want to put your headphones on for this one. Car fanatic 19Bozzy92 decided to record his latest video with a 3D binaural microphone. The resulting audio is the next best thing to standing trackside as these amazing Ferrari F1 cars zip around the circuit at Mugello.
