This is a great video about the awesome Larry at work on one of the very, very rare 288 GTOs. Only 279 were made (according to Wikipedia, 272), though a lot less are still in existence, and, as you can imagine, they are million dollar+ cars.
The video shows Larry working on some pretty bad wash damage, and the approach he takes when detailing a car that uses a variety of materials for its bodywork, from fiber glass to aluminum.
Just found a few shots of the unique Ferrari Superamerica 45. This one-off model was specifically made for a renowned Ferrari collector, Mr. Peter Kalikow, president of one of New York City’s leading real estate firms.
So, the F70 has been caught in the wild in Maranello!
It’s the queen of supercars and it’s gonna be VERY fast. In fact, the new (supposedly 900+bhp) V12, is also paired with the new HY-KERS hybrid unit, a Dual-Clutch Transmission (DCT), and a body weight of less than 1200kgs.
We still don’t know when or where it will be announced. Our money is on the Shanghai Auto Show in April 2013, but it’s too early to say.
This is gonna be the fastest Ferrari yet, and, possibly, the fastest roadcar of all time. Alleged specs include a blazingly fast 0-100km/hr in less than 3 seconds.
The price? It’s definitely a case of “if you have to ask, you can’t afford it”, but it looks like the F70 is gonna cost a cool €1.5m. Just make sure you pick the right insurance deal to go with it.
