Ferrari Continues its Tradition of Fast Cars and Unimaginative Names With the 812 Superfast

Ferrari 812 Superfast is the most powerful production car Ferrari has ever built. Its stance, its looks, its speed, its power, its dumb name – all scream Ferrari. The 812 Superfast is powered by a naturally aspirated V12 engine pushing out 800hp that takes the car from 0 to 60mph in 2.9 seconds, and to a top speed of 211 mph.

Watch a bicycle kick a Ferrari’s ass in a drag race

It is entirely possible that no one ever imagined reading something like that. A bicycle smoking a Ferrari? That’s probably an indication that the four horsemen of the apocalypse are in town. Thankfully for sanity, we know that the bike is powered by a rocket engine, which explains why the poor Ferrari 430 Scuderia is left bellowing in the dust from the get-go.

The video was captured on November 7, 2014, where François Gissy reached a top speed of 207mph (333 km/h) at the famous Circuit Paul Ricard in Le Castellet, France.

Artist Dresses Ferrari F430 in Leather, Tattoos It

Tattooed Ferrari F430 by Phillipe Pasqua

Artist Philippe Pasqua started off this project with a Ferrari F430 Scuderia. The supercar was first wrapped in cowhide, taking care to cover every nook and crevice of the body, while ensuring the leather followed the curves of the Ferrari as well as it could be. This would in itself be a tricky job, considering the joints, hinges and crevices are not the best friends of a leather coat.

Ferrari CascoRosso Concept

Ferrari CascoRosso Concept

Eye candy comes well suited when presented in the form of automobile design goodness. Ferrari CascoRosso is an independent design concept by Macedonian designer Dejan Hristov. The name itself is Italian for “red helmet” while the design is homage to the Ferrari 250 GTO, which will celebrate 50 years of its existence in 2014. While the Ferrari 250 GTO obviously influences the concept, the designer also envisions it as a successor to the Ferrari F12 Berlinetta, allowing the concept to fuse the past, present and future.

Ferrari Powers Up The LaFerrari With 950 Horses

Ferrari’s offering for the Geneva Motor Show this year is the very potent LaFerrari. They call it a successor to the venerable Enzo and to put it in the same class and category, the LaFerrari’s carbon fiber covered body holds a 6.3-liter V12 engine that rolls out a massive 789hp. But hey, the heading right there says there’s 950 horses in there, well, that’s because there’s an electric motor involved in the action that pumps out the remaining 161hp.
