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.

Stolen ferrari perth
The one-off is likely based on the F12 Berlinetta or 812 Superfast. Ferrari is no stranger to coachbuilt, one-of-one designs for the most discerning clients, and it looks like another bespoke cavallino rampante is on its way to the stable. Spotted recently wearing license plates from Abu Dhabi, we think we’re looking at the Ferrari F125 TDE, a bespoke supercar wearing futuristic styling and a heritage-inspired name. As reported by The Supercar Blog, which published the image seen here, the machine takes its name from the Tour de España, though that could be subject to change. It’s also possible the F125 TDE was designed by the coachbuilders at Carrozzeria Touring Superleggera . If that’s the case, then the Ferrari would join a portfolio that also includes the stunning Alfa Romeo Disco Volante supercar, as well as the Maserati Quattroporte Bellagio and Bentley Flying Star shooting brakes. It also wouldn’t be the first time the coachbuilder has turned its eye toward … [Read more...] about Rumored Bespoke Ferrari F125 TDE Spied Looking Absolutely Wild
Carbon fiber all the things. Controversial tuner Mansory has been keeping itself quite busy in recent months with lots of tuning projects. The Portofino is their third customized Ferrari this year, following wild makeovers for the F8 Tributo and 812 GTS released earlier in 2021. The German aftermarket specialist is particularly proud of the retractable hardtop, now made entirely out of forged carbon. Numerous body add-ons feature the same lightweight construction and you can see these upgrades from just about every angle. The front apron and hood air vents utilize forged carbon, much like the side skirts and mirror caps. Even the pillars and door handles follow this theme, which continues at the back for the subtle lid spoiler and the not-so-subtle apron.

Not dead yet. With the launch of the 812 Competizione and 812 Competizione A , Ferrari introduced its most powerful internal combustion engine for a road car in its entire history. With 830 horsepower (619 kilowatts) and 510 pound-feet (692 Newton-meters) of torque, the 6.5-liter V12 proves naturally-aspirated engines are still very much alive and kicking. And it seems that the V12 NA will continue to play an important role in the Maranello-based company’s future. Speaking to TopGear , Enrico Galliera, the brand’s chief marketing and commercial officer, acknowledged the V12 “is certainly the heart of Ferrari.” More importantly, he confirmed the engineering team wants to “identify ways to keep it alive” as he remains positive the days of the naturally aspirated V12 are not counted yet.
