Fiorano sports cars
Ferrari and its 488 GTE World Endurance Championship race car have had a pretty successful go, but a win at Le Mans has alluded Ferrari and the AF Corse racing team. For 2018, Ferrari hopes to change that with an updated 488 GTE Evoluzione, or Evo, which debuted last Friday at a shakedown test on the Fiorano, Italy, test track. Two cars, the numbers 51 and 71, appeared at Fiorano. The sports car maker did not comment on what mechanical or design changes earn the 488 GTE the "Evo" name, but the car does come ready to race in a lovely new shade of metallic red with an updated livery. The outgoing 488 GTE helped Ferrari and AF Corse claim the driver's, team's, and manufacturer's titles in the GTE Pro class of the FIA World Endurance Championship last year. The windshield of the new car displays the colors of last year's world title. The last time Ferrari took the win in at Le Mans was in 2014. Since then, a Corvette, Ford GT, and Aston Martin Vantage have left Le Mans … [Read more...] about Ferrari 488 GTE Evo debuts at Fiorano, aiming for victory at Le Mans
Yet another electric car startup has come out of the woodwork. The latest is SF Motors which already has a plant in the United States and is constructing another in China. It's also got a co-founder of Tesla among its ranks. BMW is out testing prototypes for its next-generation M3. Don't expect a hybrid powertrain in the new sport sedan though there could still be some electrification, perhaps in the form of an electric-aided compressor. Ferraris of the future will come with hybrid technology. A video has surfaced that likely shows Ferrari testing a new hybrid powertrain expected to be in production in the next year or two. You'll find these stories and more in today's car news, right here at Motor Authority.

It's a childhood dream come true: take eight wickedly fast and capable cars to a racetrack and drive them until you can decide which one is best. The only problem, for me at least, was that I'd never driven this particular racetrack before, and I had no desire to learn it behind the wheel of a $250,000 Ferrari that laps the Fiorano road course faster than the mythical Enzo supercar. Particularly not with twenty of my friends and co-workers watching. So I asked R&T's Editor-in-Chief Larry Webster if I could show up to NCM Motorsports Park before everyone else and, you know, practice a bit. He agreed, but told me that he didn't want me putting extra miles on the PCOTY candidates. Advertisement - Continue Reading Below Not a problem. All I needed was a "trainer". Sort of like the T-38 Talon that the Air Force uses to train its fighter pilots before they step into the cockpit of an F-22. Luckily for me, I had just such a vehicle: my 2004 Boxster S "550 Spyder Edition". I've … [Read more...] about Is a $15,000 Porsche Boxster the Perfect Alternative to a New $100,000 Sports Car?
Back when I was a lad walking to school uphill in the snow both ways, cars knew their place. A sedan is what you drove to work because life was dull, a sports car was a silly, useless little thing, an SUV had solid axles (and not much else), a supercar was little more than bedroom wall fodder, and the term “hypercar” was just a glimmer in some marketer’s eye. These days? Fuhgeddaboudit. Bentley’s got an SUV with 77 acres of leather, two forests worth of wood paneling, a $250,000 clock, and the ability to travel at 190 mph. We just tested a sedan—the sinister Mercedes-AMG E63 S 4Matic+—that not only runs 11.2 in the quarter mile but also comes complete with a perfume dispenser. Not joking. Now we’ve got the McLaren 720S: a run-of-the-mill supercar by the look of the spec sheet but one that behaves just like hypercar. What’s the world coming to?Let’s enjoy a quick look at said spec sheet together, shall we? Behind the carbon-fiber … [Read more...] about 2018 McLaren 720S First Test: The New Normal is Nuts
