The weight drops by 265 pounds. The Ferrari Testarossa is an automotive icon of the 1980s that's immediately identifiable from the cheese-grater side strakes, pop-up headlights, and wedge shape. Still, modern technology is far more advanced today, and the Swiss company Officine Fioravanti is building a restomod version that aims to boost the model's performance. The company isn't offering too many details yet. One of the most fascinating aspects is the plan to achieve a top speed of 200 miles per hour (322 kilometers per hour), versus the original's Vmax of 180 mph (290 kph), according to Autocar . Presumably, this is going to require increasing the output from the factory 385 horsepower (287 kilowatts) or 422 hp (315 kW) from the later 512 TR. The tweaks also include adding anti-lock brakes and traction control.

Quite a curse for tech-savvy criminals, but does it end there? Smartphone integration has become an integral part of vehicle technology . So much so that the majority of cars you can buy these days have Apple CarPlay and/or Android Auto capabilities, making the process more seamless for the users. Heck, even commercial vehicles like Mercedes and Scania trucks have Apple CarPlay as early as 2017.

It was at the dealer for a faulty backup camera. The relationship between a customer and a dealer is a very fragile thing. Every little mistake by the salespeople or the service center can damage the client’s trust, and can ultimately force him to switch to another brand. It’s probably safe to say Frank Statti, a Nissan Altima owner from Canada, won’t be buying a new Nissan in the future, or at least, he won’t be buying it from the same dealer. The backup camera of his 2017 Altima was faulty and he called the dealer, who said he needed to keep the car for a couple of days.
