This Ferrari F355 V8 paired with a six-speed manual transaxle just popped up for sale on Bring a Trailer. What car would you swap it into?This engine, internally dubbed F129C by Ferrari, is a 3.5-liter naturally aspirated unit producing 375 horsepower and 268 lb.-ft. of torque, with a redline of 8500 RPM. It has five valves per cylinder, a dry-sump oiling system, and titanium connecting rods from the factory. According to Bring a Trailer, it was pulled out of an F355 Spider that was wrecked in 2015, and has just 10,900 miles of usage. It's connected to a six-speed transaxle that also houses the differential. Both parts are said to be in good working order, although, there are some parts missing, such as the alternator, starter motor, clutch assembly, and exhaust headers (which are very expensive to replace). As unimaginative as this sounds, I'd probably drop this combo into something like a Dino 308 GT4. I love the looks of it, but it's not the fastest or most modern Ferrari out there. … [Read more...] about What Would You Swap This Ferrari F355 Engine and Six-Speed Gearbox Into?

Por Manuel Arroyo Todas los fabricantes de automóviles cometen errores de fabricación, y en la lista de errores, ningún fabricante está exento de haberlos hechos. Incluso Ferrari. No hay peor que un Ferrari indeseable, pero hay muchos autos del catálogo trasero de la automotriz que son menos amados que otros. Algunos simplemente no tenían el aspecto que se suponía iba a tenar cuando era nuevo, mientras que otros tenían un manejo o un rendimiento que no cumplía el sueño. Para muchos, el Ferrari 412 es el Ferrari más feo de la historia. La antítesis de los Ferrari más bonitos que te recopilé hace unos días en uno de esos temas para leer y visualizar la galería con el babero puesto. Se trata de una berlinetta 2+2 clásica, precursora de los Ferrari 456 y Ferrari 612 Scaglietti y tatarabuelo del actual Ferrari GTC4Lusso. Sin duda es un auto controvertido: probablemente el Ferrari menos deportivo y radical. … [Read more...] about Cuáles son las Ferraris menos deseables por sus compradores
Over 150 units of the beautiful Dino sports car and over 300 customers throughout the world were at Maranello and Ferrari on Saturday 30th June 2018. They were there to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the road debut of the first production Dino. The Dino is one of the world’s best-loved and biggest selling Ferrari. Ironically, it wasn't called a Ferrari in the first place, but a Dino as it was fitted with a six-cylinder engine designed by Enzo Ferrari's son, from whom it has taken its name. The sports car was first presented as a prototype at the Paris Motor Show in October 1965 and a year later it went on display at the Turin Motor Show but was only officially launched at the Frankfurt Motor Show the following year in November. But whatever the case, the Dino was super popular and has all the hallmarks of the classic Ferrari. It basically started the 'entry level' Ferrari...from this 246 Dino, then the V8 powered Dino 308 GT4 (pictured above & below) as well … [Read more...] about Ferrari Celebrates the 50th Anniversary of the Dino
Ferrari has made a lot of iconic models over the course of its 70-year history. But few still hold sway over the hearts of so many as the Dino series. To celebrate that model line’s 50th anniversary, over 150 of them gathered in Maranello where they began production half a century ago. The series started with the 206 GT, which was subsequently upgraded to the 246 but kept much of the original shape. They were replaced with the boxier, Bertone-designed 308 GT4, and yielded several racing variants over the course of nearly two decades before the name was retired. Now if you’re thinking “has it really only been 50 years since the debut of the Dino?” – you’re right. It’s been longer. The first concept actually debuted at the Paris Motor Show in 1965. The production version followed at the Turin show in ’66, and was officially launched at Frankfurt in ’67. That means the anniversary really should have been marked last year. But the … [Read more...] about 150 Ferrari Dinos Gather In Maranello To Celebrate The Model’s 50th Anniversary
They say you buy a Ferrari with your heart, not your head, but occasionally a model is produced which can be said to grab both ends of your anatomy equally. The 458 Speciale is such a car for two reasons: it represents the pinnacle for a lineage of naturally aspirated, mid-engined V8 Ferrari berlinettas that stretches back to the 1973 Dino 308 GT4 and, well, it was very, very good. Since the 458's successor, the 488 GTB, was launched in 2015, series production mid-engined V8 Ferraris (so that excludes bespoke builds such as the one-off 458 MM Speciale of 2016) have featured forced induction. That leaves the 458, of which the Speciale is the most hardcore variant, with the sort of collectable potential that could see low-mileage and immaculate examples fetch considerably more than the £208,000 they sold for when new (more on that in a minute). But, unlike the growing number of low volume manufacturers producing supercars that appear to come pre-wrapped in cotton wool, Ferrari … [Read more...] about Showpiece of the Week: Ferrari 458 Speciale
