Ferrari has just unveiled its newest “supercar”, LaFerrari, at the Geneva Auto Show. This is the same show that the C7 Corvette convertible will be introduced. The new Ferrari is powered by a V12 engine that produces 800 HP and is supplemented by and electric motor which adds another 163 HP bringing the total to a staggering 963 HP. LaFerrari, which means “The Ferrari” in Italian, is their first gasoline electric hybrid model.
It’s a tribute to the engineers at Chevrolet that the Corvette ZR1 is even considered a peer with the much, much more expensive Ferrari 458 Italia and the McLaren MP4-12C.
Road & Track recently decided to pit three of the best that the United States, Italy, and Britain have to offer at Spring Mountain’s Radical Loop, with IMSA GT legend Steve Millen driving for the timed laps. Millen, of course, has the most all-time wins in that series with 20 as well as the most pole positions with 23.
Bloomberg auto columnist Jason Harper offers up some constructive criticism of the Chevrolet Corvette in a recent video.
Harper and a buddy took a Ferrari 458 and a new Corvette to the racetrack in Monticello in the Catskills, and they came away impressed with the American car.
Vette Testarossa – $16500 (las vegas)
Found that headline while browsing Craigslist this week and for some reason, I got a kick that out of all places, the car is in Vegas. Now its got to stay there, right? Our black faux-testarossa sits on a 1984 Corvette chassis and the merged kit car looks to be well executed, down to the prancing horse logo on the rear. If you’ve got $16,500 or a 2000 or newer limousine to trade, the Vette Testarossa could be yours!
