The car you are looking at in the video is the last naturally aspirated Ferrari and it’s called the Ferrari 812 Superfast. Ferrari plans to reveal the 812 Superfast at next month’s Geneva International Motor Show, but it has revealed some of the car’s specs a little early. Under that long, vented hood is a 6.5L V12 engine that makes 788hp and a peak torque of 718Nm. This makes the 812 Superfast, well super fast.
Just as we had reported earlier, Italian sports carmaker Ferrari has officially re-entered Indian market with the launch of its California T at Rs.3.45 crore. The California T was launched around the world last year and it is a worthy successor to the Ferrari California coupe. It is also the first Ferrari car in 20 years to have a turbocharged engine.
The 3.8-liter turbocharged V8 engine that powers the California T produces a whopping 552bhp of peak power and 755Nm of peak torque. With all this power, the California T can go from zero to 100kmph in just 3.6 seconds and can achieve a top speed of 314kmph. The engine is mated to a 7-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission.
On the inside, the California T gets a 2+2 seating arrangement similar to the previous California coupe. The retractable hard top of the California T can be folded up or down in just 14 seconds. The entire cabin of the California T has been covered in semi-aniline leather. Apart from that the car comes with 6.5-inch touchscreen infotainment system as well as 12-speaker JBL entertainment system.
The California T has also received certain technologies from Ferrari’s F1 vehicles, such as a F1-spec traction control system, a variable boost management system and magnetic damping.
The California T along with other Ferrari cars would be sold exclusively through two new showrooms in Mumbai and Delhi.
Ferrari is all set to return to India and it would officially begin its Indian journey from tomorrow with the launch of the California T convertible. At Rs.3.3 crore (ex-showroom Mumbai), the California T would the cheapest Ferrari offering here in India.
Powered by a 3.9-liter bi-turbo V12 552bhp engine, the California T delivers varying torque at different gear levels – higher the gear higher the torque figure. What it does is it gives a continuous sense of acceleration and reduces turbo lag to a great deal.
Apart from the California T, Ferrari will put up its entire lineup for sale in India. Cars that would be on the showroom shelves will include the likes of 488 GTB, F-12 Berlinetta, 458 Speciale, 458 Spider and the Ferrari FF. Bookings for these cars have already opened. Initially these cars would be sold through two Ferrari dealerships that are currently being built in Mumbai and Delhi.
But here is one bad news if you want to lay your hands on one of these Ferrari gems right away. The company is currently accepting bookings for 2016 as its quota for this year has already been sold out.
Below are the prices of cars that Ferrari would offer its Indian customers.
Model Price (All prices are ex-showroom Mumbai)
Ferrari California T Rs.3.33 crore
Ferrari 488 GTB Rs.3.84 crore
Ferrari 458 Speciale Rs.4.25 crore
Ferrari 458 Spider Rs.4.07 crore
Ferrari F-12 Berlinetta Rs.4.72 crore
Ferrari FF Rs.4.57 crore
Cars getting spied on while testing is nothing new. But this time a car has been spied fully undisguised while it was being tested. We are talking about the upcoming Ferrari F12 Speciale and the car was posted undergoing tests without any cover of sorts at the company’s facility at Maranello, Italy. It is expected to make it global debut at the upcoming Frankfurt Motor Show in September.
From the spy images it is clear that the F12 have hit the treadmill hard and was able to shed somewhere around 200kgs. Some serious weight reduction measures seem to have been taken by Ferrari to achieve this near impossible feat. The secret, we think, lies in the extensive use of carbon-fiber on the car. The front fenders as well as the side skirts have been made fully from carbon-fiber composites. The car also has a fully redesigned rear bumper.
As far as the powertrain of the F12 Speciale is concerned, the car will be powered by a naturally-aspirated 6.3-liter V12 engine capable of doling out a max power of 760bhp. Overall the F12 Speciale’s engine would be giving out 30HP more than what F12 Berlinetta’s engine gave.
Power to weight ratio of the Speciale is also going to much higher compared to the Berlinetta and that is primarily because of the reduction in weight of the car. It is also expected to get a new suspension to improve its driving dynamics even further.
For the past three years Ferrari hadn’t turned to F12 Berlinetta since launch, but suddenly out of nowhere we came across the spy-shots depicting its update. The spotted mule is seen for the first time, and was covered in camouflages at the rear. That raised suspicion claimed something fishy is cooking under the nose of this Prancing Horse.
However, no confirmation is given for the update of F12 Berlinetta by officials, but as far the speculation goes it may receive the new name badge of ‘F12 M’. Except for some changes at rear, the reason it is covered in camouflages, design remained prominent to the present-gen model. There are suspicions of rear spoiler and rear fascia going under the knife for a resurrection in major ratio.
Thus, no more details splurged from the source except that it will use a 6.3-litre V12 engine (tuned) to produce the max power output of 739bhp; with launch expected to happen at Geneva Motor show 2016.
Hence, that was all to say as of now. Stay tuned to us for more details.

It hurts to see the car like LaFerrari meeting an accident across the road. Images sent from China revealed this hypercar of Ferrari is crashed while speeding on a highway in Shanghai.
The teenage driver did not possessed valid experience of driving, and as lost the control he rammed over side barriers of the road. Thus, the exact reason for accident isn’t made known, but tremendous rains must have caused it to collide.
The machine as powerful as 950 horsepower needs special guidance before strapping into its seats. This example here shows lack of expertise of the driver.
As per to a source, the owner seems filthy rich, as a media reported he too owned a McLaren P1 in his garage. Amazingly, the pair of fluorescent sneakers is also photographed, which don’t look suitable to drive this machine and must have something to do with the accident. Well, the teenager appears quite relaxed fiddling with his mobile phone after totaling this expensive ride.
For understanding a slice of intensity of this wreckage technical specifications of, 6.3 liter V12 sending 950bhp and 900Nm for a top speed of 350km/h and 0-100 in 2.7 seconds, says it all.
A revelation by Ferrari always turns out to be a legend. And when it’s at Geneva Motor Show, then the surprise hits a big size, though in a small packet. The Geneva Motor Show 2015 is bound to be an important milestone for the history of Ferrari. As reported, the company will end the production of its torch bearer 458 during September; the new product that will follow the league will be a “488 GTB” and is now revealed in virtual images ahead of its actual unveiling in Switzerland.
On the technical front, a 3.9-liter V8 twin-turbo engine of 670bhp @ 8000 rpm and 760Nm of torque @ 3000 rpm is placed. The 0-100 km/h is attained in 3 seconds, and the 0-200 km/h in a paltry time of 8.3 seconds before hitting the top-speed mark of 330 km/h.
The said amount of power from this mid-engined car is transferred to the rear wheels via a seven-speed dual-clutch transmission (DCT). Though, the performance isn’t known from an actual test drive, but Ferrari in its manuscript claims the exhaust is modified and now it will deliver a fresh rhapsody of the sound – clear and distinct.
Out on the styling front, a wider air dam caters he air flow with a splitter dividing it into two large sections for a more viable air movement and low down force. An active air flap at the diffuser lends the final touch to the aerodynamics. And LED headlamps are tweaked for the legacy changing purpose.
The cabin boasts similar cues to that of its predecessor 458, but those angular air vents and satellite control clusters with the skimpily revised instrument panel makes the most of it. The company claims 488 GTB of seeing the body-hugging seats and freshly made graphics for the infotainment system once when it will be launched.
The international market will get it in the showroom during September, whereas the Spider (convertible) version is bound to shed the cover at Frankfurt Motor Show this year.
Reportedly, Ferrari has landed in India. Appointment of two dealers, a one in Delhi and another in Mumbai, had been already done for this Italian carmaker to mark its footprint once again.
For those who don’t know, earlier, Ferrari had made way to India but due to certain reason it has to shut down its dealership.
Now, it seems this Italian carmaker had returned with a vengeance to sort its share. In India, it was the only Lamborghini who was selling sports cars with the title of ‘Made in Italy’, but Ferrari will change the scenario further if surged ahead in the right direction. In fact, this Prancing horse logoed automaker enjoys more fanfare in India due to certain cultural upbringing, where many would refrain to rectify the Lamborghini but they recollect the Ferrari on seeing a one.
However, which of the models will make their way isn’t confirmed, but company has revealed the details of its dealerships.
Select Cars Pvt. Ltd of New Delhi will inaugurate its outlet at A-19 Mohan Co-op Industrial Estate over the Mathura Road. And the other one in Mumbai is allotted to Navnit Motors Pvt. Ltd. This showroom will be based at C Wing, Waterford Building, CD Burfiwala Road (Juhu Galli), Andheri West.
Ferrari claimed to personally write to existing owners about its penetration structure in this market.
Hence, this much of the details are revealed. Stay tuned to us for further details of Ferrari arriving in India.
Nothing better the money can buy than a F1 Racecar Trailer for an automotive enthusiast. As the only closest thing to the racecars, this F1 trailer-home marks an important spot for the engineers and other technicians who had contributed to pull all the strings right on the racetrack.
Reportedly, Ferrari has decided to sell its F1 motor homes for an undisclosed price.
The company has used it for a decade and as combined of two trailers this motorhome spawns over an area of 200 square meter (or 2,152 square foot) when fully assembled. They comprises 7 meters in length. The automaker has used since all the seasons till mid-2013.
Originally, it’s the Iveco Stralis 480 and 540 trucks that are designed to extensively reach an outcome such like it. Both the trucks can be sold separately as well, said a source. When joined together they form an installation upto a height of 2 floors or 7-meter (22 foot). The upper deck was used by the team’s sponsor, guests and clients.
Though whatever the reason maybe for selling, it’s like a souvenir from Ferrari to those who wished to buy the closest thing to a F1 racecar.
The stamp of Ferrari on stuffs makes way for outrageously fetching deals. One such example is here from the bay of Prancing Horse logoed carmaker of Italy. The image posted down is of the carbon fiber case made for the buyers for iPhone 6 and Samsung S5. The maker is actually an official licensee of Ferrari, so pricing does have its advantage there, but the quality doesn’t seem compromised.
Wishfully, no one tempts to hate the logo of Ferrari on their phone cover, but this automaker apparently had targeted the gentlemen who wanted to make a statement every time while answering the phone.
Anonymously, both of the cases are almost same in build-up nature, but the one for iPhone costs cheap at $44, whereas the Samsung’s accessory falls pricier at $54.73!
Well, over the tug of pricing the case does it mean that iPhone is losing its position off the list, handing it over to Samsung?
