Photos of Ferrari 488 GTB

The Ferrari 488 GTB at HR Owen, Knightsbridge London! The replacement for the 458, and the car we were awaiting. Why? The answer is very simple; the Ferrari 488 GTB is powered by a turbo V8 engine. This is the end of the atmospheric engine era for the Ferrari. The turbo V8 will offer better fuel efficiency, lower emissions, and I am sure it will be faster than the car it replaces.

I am not totally against the turbo engine Ferrari. The F40 was a turbo engine. However, what I am against in Ferrari is sharing exactly the same interior with the previous car. I know Ferrari goes really fast, it is a Ferrari so I shouldn’t need to focus on this. On the other hand, when the price tag of a Ferrari 488 is more expensive than the average house, this leads me to look for these types of details.

For me, the Ferrari 488 has failed. It is very fast, handles fantastically, and is probably one of the most engaging Ferraris to drive, yet the interior has not changed. The 488 is not a face lift either. Ferrari should have introduced a completely new interior. They are playing in the luxury market, and with the previous models, Ferrari has always changed the interior with the new models.

So why has Ferrari kept the same interior of the 458 inside the 488? The answer is the cost! Introducing a new interior means many hours of designing and engineering. It is not an easy process. I could understand and accept this if the Ferrari 488 was priced in the Alfa Romeo range! Unfortunately, Ferrari’s price range is quite high.

You might say that the Bentley Continental GT has the same interior, as Porsche does not make radical changes, and the Aston Martin is the same. Unfortunately, all these competitors do not offer a radical exterior design revision for their new models. Particularly, the Porsche 911 has been more or less the same car for the last 50 years!

However, the Mercedes S-Coupe definitely offers a brand new interior!

So, should we ignore the Ferrari 488? Of course not! However, I could not get excited by the old interior.

Photos of Ferrari F40 | HR Owen London

Ferrari F40, my childhood dream. I was very lucky, I saw it again in London last week. It was sold to a customer at HR Owen Knightsbridge, London store. And it is the only Ferrari F40 with the factory fitted leather seats! Here are the photos to enjoy…

Ferrari FF, Ferrari California-T and Ferrari F12berlinetta

Ferrari FF, Ferrari California-T and Ferrari F12berlinetta. They were under the same room, in the same place, at the same time. Sounds like a extremely rare occurrence but it is possible. And thankfully, I manage to spot these three breathtaking Ferraris at HR Owen’s dealership in Knightsbridge, London.

I have written many times about Ferraris. I didn’t think that you’d be bothered about the lack of radar guided cruise control or if you could expect an extremely smooth ride from a Ferrari.

Just look and praise.

Ferrari FF at Knightsbridge London | HR Owen

Ferrari FF from Knightsbridge, London. Actually that’s the expected habitat of the all-wheel drive Ferrari. However, I didn’t spot the Ferrari FF on the street, instead, it was at HR Owen Knightsbridge dealer. Personally, I really like the Ferrari FF, even though it is a bit ugly but the technology lying under the bonnet for the all-wheel drive system turns the ugliness into a charm!

Also, Ferrari FF is quite functional car! A proper boot, all-wheel drive, four seats and it is not a poser’s Ferrari!

Ferrari FF is powered by a 6,2-lt V12 engine with 660 HP and 683 nm. The top speed of FF is 335 km/h and only needs 3.7 seconds to reach 100 km/h! And the engine is coupled with a 7-speed dual clutch automatic gearbox with pedals behind the steering-wheel!

Ferrari FF offers a very distinctive and a unique driving experience, which you cannot find very easily on a sports car!

Ferrari F40 at Autosport International 2015

Ferrari F40 at Autosport International 2015! I was waiting to see the Ferrari F40 for nearly 25 years. F40 was my childhood supercar and all time favourite. The 320 km/h top speed of F40 was something out of this planet in early 1990s! And also F40’s outstanding design was beyond its time as well. I had many Ferrari F40 toys but never had the chance to spot one in real life.

Unfortunately, I missed the Ferrari F40 in UK few times but this time I was on right place at the right time, Autosport International 2015!

Technical details? F40 was powered by a 3-lt turbo engine with 478 HP and coupled with 5-speed manual gearbox. It had nothing, no ABS, no airbag or electric windows! F40 weighted 1.1-tonne only and managed to reach 100 km/h in 3.9 seconds in 1987!

Ferrari LaFerrari at Autosport International 2015

Today Autosport International 2015 started and this year it started with an epic super car, Ferrari LaFerrari. There are only 400 of LaFerraris and it is extremely rare to spot one the roads. Literally, Autosport International 2015 can be the first and last place to see a Ferrari LaFerrari!

Why I am saying this? Because, super cars of Ferrari are always rare to spot and if you missed it, it gone! So don’t be late!

Second Hand Ferrari LaFerrari

Finally, it is here again. A brand new second hand Ferrari LaFerrari just for €3-million and available at Luxembourg. Ferrari was very strict with the LaFerrari orders and they also mentioned that, there is a gentlemen’s agreement for the second hand valuation. Basically, Ferrari said, when you want to sell it, we will buy it. But it would never happen! And also Luca di Montezemolo is not controlling the Ferrari anymore, so we will see more second hand LaFerraris on the market.

If you have lots of money and Ferrari rejected, now it is the time!

Goodwood Festival of Speed 2014: Ferrari

In case you missed the Goodwood Festival of Speed 2014 or couldn’t make it due to extremely expensive rail tickets like me, I have the cure to vanish your sadness.
And I would like to thank you very much to press team of Goodwood for their great effort.
I will be posting all press photos from Goodwood Festival of Speed 2014 and starting with Ferrari!
And that green Ferrari LaFerrari is owned by Jay Kay. Why Jay Jay bought a green Ferrari? I really don’t know, may be he wanted to emphasise the eco friendly character of the LaFerrari (TheFerrari).

Practical Ways of Using Ferrari FF | Carrying Lumber

Practical ways of using Ferrari FF. The FF is the first hatchback from the iconic Italian brand Ferrari and also the first four-wheel drive on their product range. FF offers a large boots space, four proper seats and opportunity to use at any weather condition.
When a car company reveals a hatchback, there is always a risk of picturing the car with funny conditions. And it happened with the Ferrari FF in Virginia, USA. A Ferrari FF was carrying lumber, that’s what I call a proper way of utilising a hatchback :) And thanks to DMV Supercar Nation for the photo.

10 Reasons to Love Ferrari

10 Reasons to Love Ferrari, I know there are more reasons to love Ferrari but this is my new content style. 10 Reason to…

1. That’s a Ferrari! 

No one can deny the attractiveness and the sexiness of a Ferrari. Even a 1200 HP Bugatti cannot create the same emotional feelings! A Ferrari is always a Ferrari.

2. Made in Italy! 

Italy is not an epic manufacturer in automotive industry. But no one would ever buy a Ferrari that is not manufactured outside of Italy. Probably Ferrari is the only Italian product to be purchased, because it is Made In Italy.

3. It is a dream! 

Yes, Ferrari knows this as well. Ferrari does not sell a product to travel from A to B, they sell a dream to live in real life. At some age, everyone dreamed to own a Ferrari. Don’t deny it :)

4. Power! 

Ferrari means power. But not too much power, Ferrari offers you the power that can be transferred to tyres! Ferrari does not manufacture the most powerful cars but they combine the ultimate level of power with the ultimate driving experience.

5. Design! 

Ferrari never looks ugly, never! That’s why you had five different Ferrari F40s when you were ten-year old (I had three F40s, two in red and one in black).

6. Formula 1! 

Ferrari means Formula 1. Every Ferrari has a Formula 1 DNA and technology underneath the bonnet. Literally, a Ferrari is a street-legal Formula 1 car.

7. Rare to spot! 

Ferrari is not a car that you can spot everyday. Some of the Ferraris, you only see once in your whole life!

8. Heritage! 

Ferrari was founded in 1947 but what they have done since that time cannot be achieved by many automotive companies.

9. Factory! 

Ferrari has the most environment and coolest factory on earth. They have trees and plants next to production line. Harmony of emotions and engineering.

10. Engine! 

That’s a Ferrari engine. No one can imitate its noise, no one can fake it. You always recognise the Ferrari’s engine noise. Even if you heard once, you will never forget it.
