The Ferrari Daytona SP3 sports a naturally-aspirated V12, mid-rear-mounted in typical racing car style. Undisputedly the most iconic of all Maranello’s engines, this power unit delivers 840 horsepower – making it the most powerful engine ever built by Ferrari – along with 697 Nm of torque and maximum revs of 9500 rpm. The chassis is built entirely from composite materials using Formula 1 technologies that have not been seen in a road car since the la Ferrari, Maranello’s last supercar. The seat is an integral part of the chassis to reduce weight and guarantee the driver a driving position similar to that of a competition car.
Ferrari continues to be an ever-present figure when it comes to producing some of the world’s most revered and sought after exotic automobiles. Striking a fine balance between forward-looking innovation, while still keeping true to its heritage.
Ferrari SF90 Spider
Engine: 4.0L twin-turbocharged V8, plus 3 electric motors
Power: 989 hp (combined)
Torque: 590 lb-ft
0-60 mph: 2.5 s
0-124 mph: 6.7 s
Top Speed: 211 mph
The Ferrari SF90 Spider has now been unveiled as Ferrari’s first plug-in hybrid roadster with close to 1,000 hp. The car is the open-top version of the SF90 Stradale. It maintains many of the Stradale’s specs, including a 211 mph top speed. It will do a 0-60 mph time in just 2.5 seconds.
The SF90 Spider features a retractable hardtop that’s made of aluminum. This saves around 88 pounds over other traditional materials, according to Autoblog. However, the Spider still weighs 220 pounds more than the Stradale. The Spider’s roof can be lowered in 14 seconds and operated when the car is standing still or at low speeds.
There’s also a powered rear window that can be raised even when the top is down. This provides a bit more wind protection. Ferrari didn’t stop there in terms of airflow around the cockpit. The central trim piece between the seats also manages to channel air away from the occupants.

THE COMPANY FAMILY
Ferrari ran the company as a family, enriched with training schools, canteens, banks with subsidies for employees. And in the most dramatic cases where the health insurance fund did not arrive, his intervention was not long in coming. That’s why he never went on strike. There was an attempt: the workers lined up outside the entrance with banners. He arrived, got out of the car, greeted the leader of the trade unionists and said: “You are right, to strike is your right, in a sense I am with you. But I work today because I have to think of you too, of your families. By the way, I heard your son was sick, is it better now? “. He greeted and entered. The others followed him in silence.
Ferrari debutta nella moda: usare un marchio noto in settori diversi è una vecchia strategia di marketing; poco importa se non hanno più una macchina vincente, poco importa se non ci sono più ingegneri e meccanici di un tempo…ci sarà sempre un fondo schiena da vestire Ferrari, per la vergogna di Enzo!
La “storia d’amore” tra la Ferrari e la Fiat nasce il 18 giugno del 1969, quando il “Drake” cede a Gianni Agnelli il 50 per cento dell’azienda, mantenendo tuttavia il controllo della gestione sportiva.
Il primo successo della “joint venture” tutta italiana arriva nel 1975: Niki Lauda si aggiudica il titolo piloti e insieme a Clay Regazzoni quello costruttori, che vinceranno anche i due anni successivi. L’austriaco si ripeterà nel 1977.
Nel 1988, dopo la morte di Ferrari, la Fiat diventa l’azionista di maggioranza della casa di Maranello.
Dal 1999 al 2004 Schumacher vince 5 campionati del mondo piloti e 6 costruttori (con l’aiuto di Eddie Irvine e soprattutto Rubens Barrichello). Agnelli muore il 24 gennaio del 2003.
Ferrari had a problem. It wanted to go Formula 2 racing in the 1960s but it needed to homologate its 2.0-litre engine for competition, and that meant at least 500 had to be built and used in road-going cars. As a maker of low-volume sports cars, that was never going to happen.
Yes, Ferrari tried with the Dino 206GT, powered by its new 2.0-litre V6, but its small production numbers (just 152 were made between 1967-69) were never going to trouble the homologation bean counters.
To solve the homologation problem, Enzo cast his not inconsiderable gaze to Turin and Italy’s mainstream maker of affordable cars, Fiat. An agreement was reached, and Fiat set about designing a new sport car that could accommodate the ‘Dino’ engine. Fiat also agreed to build the Ferrari-designed engine at its Turin plant.
The results were the Fiat Dino Coupe and Fiat Dino Spider. With Bertone responsible for the design of the Coupe, it was left to Pininfarina to pen the altogether more elegant and swoopy Spider. In a race of the drawing boards, it was the Spider which made its debut first, unveiled to the public at the 1966 Turin motor show. The Coupe followed months later, the covers taken off the Giorgetto Giugiaro-designed fastback at Geneva in March, 1967.
Both were powered by the 2.0-litre V6 making a claimed 118kW. Power was sent to the rear wheels via a five-speed manual gearbox and thanks to its svelte 1240kg kerb weight, the sprint from 0-110km/h could be dispatched in around 7.0 seconds, not too shabby for the time.
Ferrari on track for life. It will produce respirators
Ferrari in pista per la vita. Produrrà respiratori
The most beautiful and most important race: the one for life. After the millionaire donations made in recent days, Ferrari is back on track against Coronavirus making itself available, together with FCA and Marelli, to make its factories and collaborators available to increase the production of lung respirators.
All in synergy with the Bologna-based Siare Engineering, the only Italian manufacturer of fans, literally buried by requests, but which has committed itself to guaranteeing 125 life-saving machines per week.
The 250 Testa Rossa was raced successfully throughout the late 1950s and early 1960s. (Not to be confused with Ferrari 500 TR or Ferrari Testarossa)
Independent teams raced the 250 TR alongside Scuderia Ferrari cars from 1958 on, although the most developed versions of the car were restricted to factory-sanctioned teams only.
250 TRs were extremely competitive during this time, winning 10 World Sportscar Championship races including the 1958, 1960, and 1961 24 Hours of Le Mans, the 1958, 1959 and 1961 12 Hours of Sebring, the 1958 Targa Florio, the 1958 and 1960 1000 km Buenos Aires and the 1961 4 hours of Pescara. Notable drivers included Phil Hill, Olivier Gendebien, Luigi Musso, Peter Collins, Dan Gurney, Wolfgang von Trips and Mike Hawthorne, among others.
The excellent results of 250 TRs and Scuderia Ferrari’s skilled drivers earned Ferrari the 1958, 1960 and 1961 Constructor’s World Sportscar Championship titles.
The Aston Martin DBR1 and the Porsche 718 were the 250 TR’s closest competitors during this time. Stirling Moss drove a DBR1 to win first place against strong Ferrari opposition at the 1958 1000km Nürburgring, and DBR1s would go on to win over 250 TRs at the 1959 Le Mans, Nürburgring, and Tourist Trophy races, depriving Ferrari of the Constructor’s World Championship in 1959.
