Ferrari FF Maximus by DMC


If you thought that the standard Ferrari FF was powerful, wait until DMC launches this Maximus tuning project, which raises the output of the V12 6.0-liter engine by an almost incredible 225 hp (222 PS / 160 kW) and 132 lb.-ft (179 Nm). Thanks to this significant upgrade, the FF will be able to reach 62 mph from start in only 3.2 seconds, while 0-200 km/h will be done in 9.1 seconds. Expect to see a top speed of more than 211 mph (340 km/h).

By using a 3D scanner, the guys over at DMC will come up with a new aerodynamic kit that will fit perfectly to the Ferrari FF. The tuning specialists said that there are going to be new side scoops, new bumpers, a trunk spoiler, a rear diffuser and a rear wing. In addition, the front nose of the supercar will be a little bit longer and sharper while the weight saving measures will shave off 154 lbs (70 kg) as they will replace some of the parts with lightweight carbon ones.

They will raise that output figure to 876 hp (888 PS / 653 kW) and 636 lb-ft (862 Nm) by installing a brand new intake manifold, a stainless steel sport exhaust system that has 90 mm tailpipes, bigger fuel injectors, a larger intercooler as well as high-flow air filters.

The Ferrari FF Maximus by DMC will roll on lightweight wheels, measuring 21 inches in the front and 22 inches out in the back, wrapped around Pirelli PZero rubber. Other goodies added to the FF will be the front-axle lift system and the lowering springs.

Ferrari Opens Dealership In India

Ferrari’s latest move comes from India where they’ve opened up a brand new showroom, following the footsteps of other two supercar makers: Aston Martin and Maserati. Located in New Delhi, the country’s capital, this two-story outlet features an official service center that is operated by the Shreyans Group, Ferrari’s importer for the Indian market. The Italian automaker said that they’ll bring all of their models to China and they already have 50 customers waiting for their cars.

Ferrari made a smart move opening up this dealership in India if we take into consideration that the wealthy people there are avid for sports cars. In addition, good timing for this decision as later on this year, in October, India will be the host of an F1 GP so exposure for Ferrari is guaranteed.

Ferrari Axes 599 Facelift Version, Prepares Successor For Next Year

Ferrari 599

The facelift version of Ferrari’s 599 was supposed to be launched sometime next year, but due to the immense success of the recently introduced FF model, the Italian automaker has decided to drop this project, focusing on a brand new successor for the 599, which will be derived from the FF.

The new model is expected to be powered by a V12 engine that will produce 700 hp. It will feature an aluminum frame that will made out of 20 different alloys that will go with some composite panels. The rear axle will feature a multi-link configuration, while the engine will be mated to a 7-speed dual-clutch transaxle gearbox, something that we’ve already seen on the 458 Italia, California and the FF.

In other words, expect to see a sportier, more powerful and aggressive version of the FF, with more track-oriented aspirations.

Ferrari 458 Italia by SR Project

Ferrari 458 Italia Zeus by SR Project

Whenever I think of a Ferrari, I always imagine it either red or yellow, never gray. However, this Vancouver-based tuner has decided to give it this special paintwork and I have to say that it looks astonishing.

Ferrari 458 Italia Zeus by SR Project

Dubbed “Zeus”, this beautiful 458 Italia features an aerodynamic kit from Novitec that includes a brand new front lip spoiler, a gloss-black roof, side and rear skirts, along with a rear spoiler.

Akropovic provided the sport exhaust system for this tuning that probably adds a few ponies to the 458 Italia, but SR Project did not say anything about any additional power. The car now rides on Forgiato Aguzzo wheels, measuring 21 inches in the front and 22 inches out in the back. Also from Novitec, this tuning kit consists of lowering springs for the suspension.

Pebble Beach Celebrates 50th Anniversary Of The Ferrari 250 GTO

Ferrari 250 GTO

Considered by many as Ferrari’s most desirable model of all time, the 250 GTO will celebrate this year its 50th anniversary. Up until last year, it was regarded as the most valuable car in the world. The car is popular for lots of reasons, one of them being that Ferrari only made 39 units, including a single prototype.

Ferrari 250 GTO

In addition, it has one of the most beautiful shapes that we’ve seen in a car and with its success in international racing back in the 60s, no wonder that Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance has decided to organize a gathering of as many cars as possible. They’ve sent an invitation to each of the 250 GTO owners, and more than 50% of them already confirmed their presence at the gathering.

Ferrari 250 GTO

Now, for a quick history lesson.

Ferrari 250 GTO

Ferrari produced this model from 1962 until 1964 for homologation into the Group 3 Grand Touring Car category. “250” denotes the displacement in cubic centimeters of each cylinder of the power unit, while “GTO” stands for “Gran Turismo Omologata”, which is Italian for “Grand Touring Homologated.”

Ferrari 250 GTO

The price tag for the car when it was first launched in the United States was $18,000. It wasn’t enough if you had the money as you’d had to be approved by Enzo Ferrari and Luigi Chinetti, his North American dealer.

Ferrari 250 GTO

The car was based on the Ferrari 250 GT SWB and was powered by a V12 3.0-liter engine borrowed from the 250 Testa Rossa. It had an A-arm front suspension and a live-axle rear eand, along with disc brakes and Borrani wire wheels. The engine was mated to the Porsche-designed 5-speed gearbox, a premiere for Ferrari’s GT racing cars. As you would expect from a proper racing car, the interior was very basic and it didn’t had a speedometer. Most of the switches installed came from the tiny Fiat 500.

Ferrari Now Offers 7-years Of Service, Without Mileage Limit

2011 Ferrari California

Ferrari has made a great move in its battle with other supercar automakers, deciding to offer 7 years of service, without mileage limit for all their new models, like the beautiful 458 Italia, the California and the recently introduced FF.

The company’s program was designed in order to service cars about once per year, but the owners who reach the 12,500 miles (20,000 km) intervals earlier will still get their cars serviced. The great news is that there is no mileage limit for this 7-year coverage.

How will Lamborghini respond to this? We’ll have to wait and see.

Ferrari Shaves Off Biggest CO2 Among Supercar Automakers

2011 Ferrari California

We live in a world in which more and more governments are trying to bow to the public pressure of lowering down CO2 emissions and one of the first segments that they take into consideration is the automotive industry. In the United States for example, the government has imposed a 34.1 mpg fleet-wide fuel economy standard for the year 2016, while in Europe most of the governments want to put a limit on the CO2 levels, something that would greatly affect supercar makers like Ferrari.

We can already see that the Italian company is worried about this potential problem as both its F1 and road car divisions are working on new methods of reducing fuel consumption and cutting down on the CO2 emissions. Their first results include the development of a hybrid prototype, research on biofuels, fitting the cars with more fuel efficient dual clutch gearboxes and introducing the injection technology.

Ferrari 125 S – The First One Of The Breed

1947 Ferrari 125 S

It all started back in 1947 with the launch of the very first model produced and built by Ferrari of Modena, Italy. We are talking about the 125 S (also known as 125 Sport or 125). Despite the fact that it was preceded by Enzo Ferrari’s Auto Avio Costruzioni 815 (launched in 1940), the 125 S was in fact the first car to wear the Ferrari name. The debut occurred on May 11, 1947 at the Piacenza racing circuit.
