A San Diego-based EV conversion company salvaged a charred Ferrari (they had many to choose from) by turning it into what the company claims is the first fully electric Ferrari, a 415-horsepower electric tire-crusher. It’s glorious, if a little blasphemous.
There are people in this world who love surprises. I am not one of them. As Jalopnik’s Video Director, it’s my job to make sure surprises don’t happen while we’re on a video shoot. Yet, in late February, the Jalopnik staff managed to put one past me—and I don’t completely hate them for it.
Released back in 1987, almost 30 years ago, the Ferrari F40 is still considered to be one of the greatest supercars of all time. It was the last car that Enzo Ferrari himself personally approved, and Lego has finally immortalized it in plastic bricks with its latest Creator model.
When I was a kid, I always loved it when auto show season came around, and the concept cars hit the stage. Looking at those uncommon curves felt like looking into the future, where roads twisted through the heavens and The Jetsons read like a historical document. It's funny how that feeling survives.
This is the Ferrari Arno XI Racing Hydroplane and is, without a doubt, the most beautiful speedboat ever made. Its 1953 Flash Gordon design still feels beautiful today. It's not only a design masterpieces. It's an incredible machine too.
Is there any greater social faux pas than showing up to a social event in a $1.3 million hybrid super car without a matching timepiece on your wrist? Thankfully those who took a leap of faith and pre-ordered the new LaFerrari supercar can now breath a sigh of relief as Hublot has revealed the complementing MP-05…
Eddy Cue, Apple's head of Internet software and services, just joined the board of Ferrari, which could mean that Apple's cozying up to the auto manufacturer in hopes of creating products and services for cars. It's not too surprising that Apple would be trying to get more mileage out of products like iCloud and iOS…
According to Thrustmaster, this is the first ever racing wheel officially licensed by Ferrari for the Xbox 360. Who cares. You aren't going drive any faster because of the Cavallino Rampante on a glorified joystick. Unless you paint flames on it.
When an Audi clips a Ferrari at a 200 m.p.h. clip during a pass at the 24 Hours of Le Mans, this happens. The Audi driver, Alan McNish (seen above, mid-air), walked away from the crash. [The Daily]
We knew the world's fastest rollercoaster was a Ferrari, but we never saw this 150mph crazy ride action. Here it is, shown by Ferrari Formula 1's pilots Fernando Alonso and Felipe Massa. Zero to 62mph in two seconds. Terrifying. [Thanks Perico!]
It's gorgeously intricate and a hefty 50 pounds, but don't expect this hand-carved engine to do more than impress your friends. That's okay, though—at $6,000 on eBay, it's probably the closest to Ferrari ownership you'll get.
The new Conair BaByliss Pro Volare hairdryer packs an "engine" built with Ferrari's team using real Ferrari parts. I'm just hoping that if I use the Volare my hair will ooze Italian sex appeal.
Driving simulators can give you pedals to mash and wheels to steer, but there's something essential about that gut feeling of actually moving. This Ferrari simulator replicates it with a gigantic robotic arm. Watch it realistically jostle one test driver:
You're 25 and life is tough. You got laid off at work. Your girlfriend dumped you. You ate three KFC Double Downs last week...unironically. You need to get behind the wheel of a Thrustmaster Ferrari Wireless GT racing game controller.
Surprise! The Ferrari seen in Ferris Bueller's Day Off wasn't really wrecked—if it was, I doubt the owner would be expecting bids of around $45,000 for it.
This article originally placed the roller coasters in Dubai, not Abu Dhabi. Apologies for the mistake. It still looks pretty darn dangerous, though.
While a majority of those people playing Gran Turismo will never race a Civic, let alone the supercars featured therein, you can bet 100% of the people "playing" Ferrari's new racing rig will end up on the track some day.
