  • This season is a great for watching pro's do crazy things in their project cars. We had Ken Block bomb around in a Ford Fiesta ST EX43 in the desert for Terrakhana late last month. Formula Drift champ Chris Forsberg have fun in a junkyard for PROXIMITY by NOS earlier this week. Ken Block will return to the viral screen for Climbkhana on Monday, but today we have Ryan Tuerck doing somethings in his Toyota GT-4586 for Donut Media and not all of those things are good.The video begins with Tuerck at the wheel of his viral monster, the Ferrari 458 V-8 engined Toyota GT-4586. Though the car is known for the Ferrari V-8 engine the cars level of customization is so much more. In the first corner, he does what he is known for, but you would not expect to see to a car so well known, he "Tuerck'd" it. The car hit the hill side while drifting on the first shot of the day. This crash broke suspension components on the front right passenger-side of the car pulling Tuerck tinto a ditch on..

  • Every year in early September, car enthusiasts migrate back to West Sussex, England for Goodwood Revival, a celebration of vintage racing on the historic Goodwood Circuit. It's a magical sight to see so many rare, multi-million dollar race cars pushing their limits on a track. A welcomed change of pace from their natural habitats. Unfortunately, cramming a bunch of old racers onto a circuit can be a recipe for disaster, as historic racing driver Andy Newall learned the hard way at this year's event. Revival claimed its first victim of the weekend on Friday, a rare racing version of the iconic Ferrari 250 GTO.During the RAC Tourist Trophy qualifying race, a 1964 250 GTO/64 Series II piloted by Andy Newall crashed while trying to pass a Corvette Stingray and 250 LM. According to the announcers, Newall failed to anticipate the LM's braking mid-corner on a right turn, causing him to swerve to the left to avoid rear-ending the other priceless Ferrari on the track.

  • Ferrari and Marlboro created arguably the most memorable racing liveries in the 2000s and signaled an end to active cigarette advertisements in Formula One. Since tobacco promotion in motorsport was ultimately banned in 2006, the two have carried on as partners, though no ad-space was taken up on Ferrari's cars. Now, the Maranello team has renewed its contract with Marlboro parent company Philip Morris International to continue on after its two-year contract expires at the end of 2017.Marlboro entered the sport of Formula One in 1973 with the BRM team, and has continued on to partner with the likes of McLaren in the '80s as well as becoming Ferrari's title sponsor in 1997. Though direct advertisements for the brand must be excluded from the car, Ferrari still uses a subliminal hat tip to Marlboro as the Scuderia logo roughly resembles that of the cigarette company's red and white trademark.

Goodwood Revival is just around the corner, starting September 8th and fulfilling every vintage racing enthusiast's dream.

  • If you sleep on a giant pile of cash and are looking to add something really special to your car collection (Floyd Mayweather, we're looking at you), the rare unraced 1994 Ferrari 333 SP could be the car for you. RM Sotheby's is auctioning the car off on September 9, 2017, and expects it to go for between $3.3 to $4 million. If you are familiar with the 333 SP, here is a little history on one of Ferrari's most successful race cars. Ferrari had been out of the sports car racing scene since the early 1970s and was ready to jump back in. Ferrari worked with Dallara and Michelotto to design and build the chassis. Ferrari dropped their Formula One/F50 V-12 engine in the back. The 333 SP first raced at Road Atlanta in 1994 in the IMSA GT Championship. Three different teams ran a total of four cars. The 333 SP took pole for the race and scored a one-two finish on debut. Having missed the first two events of the 1994 season, the 24 Hours of Daytona and the 12 Hours of Sebring..

  • Despite having the lead on Ferrari with eight races left in the season, Lewis Hamilton feels that Mercedes Benz must continue to improve its car to match the Maranello club. According to the triple world champion, it's going to take maximum effort to keep up with its main rival. Unlike the last three years, Mercedes isn't the clear favorite, and Ferrari has a better chance than ever to challenge the silver-arrow team for the title.After a win at Sunday's Belgian GP, Hamilton admitted his win likely wouldn't have been possible if the roles were switched between him and Vettel, as The Guardianreports.“If the cars were reversed I don’t think I would have been able to hold as close as Vettel did,” the 32-year old Brit explained. “If anyone is out there thinking we have the best car this year then they need to think again, because it’s not the case.”While Ferrari showed promise at slower, tighter tracks in the first part of the year, it's also been able to pick u..

  • It may not be the prettiest Ferrari ever made (although Princess Diana and James Hunt might disagree), but the 365 GTB/4 is nicknamed the "Daytona" for a reason. These cars dominated the private racing scene in the early 1970s, including notable wins at Le Mans and Daytona. During its 4-year run, over 1200 Ferrari Daytonas were built, but just 5 were officially commissioned for the track, equipped with a lighter aluminum-alloy body. Unbeknownst to most Ferrari aficionados, the company built an extra of these racing 365s, the only street-legal one in existence. The fabled road-worthy 1969 Daytona race car has flown under the radar, hidden away in storage until now. This 1969 Ferrari 365 GTB/4 Daytona Berlinetta Alloy by Scaglietti may be in "barn find" condition, but it's going to auction starting at $1.7 million on September 9th at RM Sotheby's. The singular street-legal Daytona racer featured a Rosso Chiaro (red) paint job and Nero (black) leather interior. It was optioned ..

  • Even though the Kardashians—America's other First Family, as it were—aren't exactly trading on their reputation as car people, all that money begets some seriously cool rides. West Coast Customs just finished up some work on youngest sister Kylie Jenner's new Ferrari 488 Spider—and we have to admit, it's a far cry from the days of Pimp My Ride's gaudy opulence.Despite being only 20 years old, Kylie Jenner has managed to amass quite a car collection. Her totally-normal garage has included a Mercedes-Benz G63 AMG, a Range Rover Autobiography, a Ferrari 458 Italia, a Rolls-Royce Ghost, and a Maybach for good measure. But after she and her sister Kendall bought matching Ferrari 488 Spiders last year, it seems Kylie wanted hers to stand out a little. (Again, completely understandable and relatable.)So she turned to the crew at West Coast Customs, who have clearly moved beyond Louis Vuitton wraps and putting televisions in door panels. The result is pretty stunning..

    Kylie Jenner’s West Coast Customs Ferrari 488 Spider is Surprisingly Tasteful

  • And suddenly, the Ferrari California T was dead. As of Wednesday morning, Maranello's entry-level sports car-slash-roadster-slash-gran turismo has been replaced with a new model called the Ferrari Portofino—a car packing more horsepower and visual firepower than the occasionally-maligned, often-disrespected F-car it replaces. The Ferrari Portofino—which takes its name from a famous seaside resort town in its home country—uses the same 3.9-liter V-8 found in its predecessor and the Ferrari 488 GTB/Spider. In the Portofino, the twin-turbo firecracker is dialed up to 600 metric horsepower at 7,500 rpm—which works out to 592 ponies here in 'Murica. Torque sits at 561 pound-feet, up a humble four from the Cali T. As Ferrari's press release made no mention of the transmission, we at The Drive feel safe in assuming the Portofino uses the same seven-speed dual-clutch 'box found in every other modern Ferrari. All that power is shunted to the rear wheels through the latest ..
