2012 Ferrari 458 Italia Drifting - Ferrari Facebook 8,000,000
FERRARI IS A LEADER ON SOCIAL NETWORKS FIRST ON G+ AND 8 MILLION FANS ON FACEBOOK
Maranello, 26 April 2012 - Ferrari is the main protagonist even on social networks. This fact is confirmed by the numbers: the brand of the Prancing Horse is the leading player in the automotive sector and the most popular in the general classification. A couple of days ago the Facebook page passed the goal of eight million fans, and, to celebrate, Ferrari commissioned a special video of the 458 Italia "drawing" the number 8,000,000 on the steering pad at the Fiorano race track, which was dedicated to every one of them.
The growth of the Google network G+ is another success for Ferrari: here the Prancing Horse holds first position with over half a million fans, a number, which has grown tenfold in the first quarter of 2012. But there is even more: the Ferrari brand, which has been present for a short time on one of the most important social networks in China, Weibo, has immediately turned into the most popular of its segment.
Whether it is for the road cars or the racing cars, the worldwide popularity of the brand is confirmed every day, even online.
The fans from the Prancing Horse don't just click on in traditional Ferrari markets such as the USA, Great Britain, Italy and Spain, but also in huge numbers in emerging countries such as India and Brazil, travelling virtually to Maranello from places as far as Tonga, Samoa and Vanuatu, as well as from places facing difficult times such as Afghanistan and Libya, or culturally different places like Iran.
The fans of racing and cars have many possibilities to directly express their enthusiasm, their opinions and, sometimes, their criticisms, for example on Twitter: on four different Twitter accounts -@insideferrari for the activities of the Scuderia, @ferrariraces for the Ferrari Challenge single-marque championship, @insideFDA for the Ferrari Driver Academy and @ferrarimagazine for the official magazine. The official Ferrari channels show the great determination of the Prancing Horse to maintain a direct contact with the fans all over the world.
And then there is the website ferrari.com, with millions of visitors every month in seven languages, including Chinese and Japanese, with news from the world of Formula 1, to road cars and a section dedicated to the clients of the Prancing Horse.

2012 Ferrari 458 Spider
Maranello, 23rd August 2011 -- The new 458 Spider joins the 458 Italia, widening the range of Ferrari's mid-rear engined V8s and offering the same uncompromising technological solutions, handling and performance in a refined open-top configuration. It is equipped with a Ferrari patented, fully retractable hard top, a world first for a sports car with this lay-out.
The 458 Spider is powered by Ferrari's naturally-aspirated, direct-injection 4.5 litre V8 which was nominated as the 2011 International Engine of the Year for its engineering excellence in terms of driveability, performance, economy and refinement. The power is transferred to the road by Ferrari's class-leading dual-clutch F1 paddle-shift transmission through the sophisticated E-Diff, itself integrated with the F1-Trac traction control and high-performance ABS for maximum handling dynamics.
Certain of the car's features, such as its accelerator pedal mapping and the damping of the multilink suspension, have been calibrated to guarantee maximum sportiness and absolute driving pleasure with the top down, in line with Maranello's exclusive spider tradition. Even the engine soundtrack has been honed to ensure that the car's occupants are completely captivated by the drop-top driving experience.
Entirely in aluminium, the hard-top solution adopted for the 458 Spider offers a number of advantages over the traditional folding soft-top, including a reduction of 25 kg in weight and a deployment time of just 14 seconds. Fully integrated into the styling of the car, the hard-top was engineered to fit neatly ahead of the engine bay without compromising aerodynamics or the performance of the car. The small space needed to house the roof enables the designers to include a generous rear bench for luggage behind the seats.
The rear of the car is characterised by innovative forms with the buttresses designed to optimise the flow of air to the engine intakes and the clutch and gearbox oil radiators. For maximum comfort whilst driving top down the 458 Spider features a generously-sized adjustable electric wind stop. The design was perfected to slow and diffuse the air in the cockpit, enabling normal conversation to be held even at speeds over 200 km/h.
New technical solutions adopted for the chassis guarantee identical levels of structural rigidity with the roof up or down. The result is a car that is truly exciting to drive, blending extreme performance with the responsiveness that has always characterised Ferrari's open-top berlinettas.
2012 Ferrari 458 Italia China Special Edition - Dragon-Horse
FERRARI CELEBRATES ITS 20TH ANNIVERSARY IN CHINA WITH AN IMPORTANT EXHIBITION AND A SPECIAL EDITION OF THE 458 ITALIA
Shanghai, 10 April 2012 - This year marks the 20th anniversary for Ferrari in China since the first Ferrari, a 348 TS, was ordered in Beijing. To celebrate this historical milestone, in a few weeks time Ferrari will inaugurate its first ever permanent brand exhibition outside of Maranello at the Italia Center of Shanghai World Expo Park. Covering 900 square metres the Ferrari Exhibition will last for three years and will feature some of the best collections from the Maranello Museum divided into five topics, including Ferrari in China, Green Technology, Product, Design and Racing.
Along with current and past Ferrari models, visitors will gain first-hand experience with a rich selection of images and videos made especially for this exhibition.
Another important element for the 20th anniversary celebration is the introduction of the 458 Italia special edition of only 20 cars dedicated exclusively to the China market. The car's livery is characterised by unique Chinese elements and is finished in a brand new colour called Marco Polo Red specially developed for this exclusive car which will be presented at the inauguration of the Ferrari Exhibition at the Shanghai Expo Park's Italian Center.
The inspiration behind the livery came from the longma theme which is an old Chinese idiom which means "the vigor and spirit of the legendary dragon-horse". Dragon is a symbol of Chinese culture, standing for courage, passion and success, whilst Ferrari's prancing horse logo is one of the most recognised symbols in the world representing Italian cultural identity and its unrivalled achievements in the design and engineering fields.
The 458 Italia is a very high performing and exclusive 8 cylinder mid-rear engined car which has won over 35 awards all around the world. The 458 Italia mixes very innovative technology with exclusivity and design and it perfectly encapsulates the passion and vitality of the longma spirit.
The most eye-catching element of the car's exterior is the golden dragon on the front bonnet, which is offset by gold and black livery stripes symbolising a racing track. The image of the soaring dragon and the prancing horse on the front bonnet complement each other perfectly, and are the finishing touch to the car's overall design. The symbols reflect both Chinese culture as well as Ferrari's constant innovation.
This unique design is enhanced by gold finish to the rims and the aeroelastic winglets. The interior also reflects the unique longma spirit and the celebration of Chinese culture with gold embroidery on the car's head rests, while the engine start button on each of the 20 cars is inscribed with the simplified Chinese characters for 'start', and a '20th Anniversary Special Edition' plaque is set into the dash.
2012 Ferrari 458 Spider at the Goodwood Festival of Speed Hillclimb
FERRARI AT THE 2012 GOODWOOD FESTIVAL OF SPEED
For immediate release
Maranello, 01 July 2012. Ferrari proudly showed two UK debuts at this year's Goodwood Festival of Speed, the all-new Ferrari 458 Spider, with its innovative folding aluminium hard-top, and the new lighter and more powerful Ferrari California 30. Joining them was the flagship V12-powered four-wheel drive Ferrari FF with all cars setting a blistering pace on the famous 1.16 mile hillclimb route.
Also taking to the track was the 2009 F60 single-seater driven by Scuderia Ferrari driver Marc Gené. He commented, "The track is extremely narrow, so it feels quite fast even though we are only doing 250 kph [156 mph]. We have brought the car here because it won in 2009 and we like to bring F1 to the fans here in England. The Festival of Speed is one of the biggest -- if not the biggest -- events in the world."
There are also several fine classic Ferraris on display at the Festival of Speed, including Nick Mason's very rare 250 MM from 1953, the ex-Carrera Panamerica car, which is still running in its original livery and was recently added to his extensive collection to fulfil his desire to own a drum-braked Ferrari. Nick also campaigned his classic 250 GTO, a regular at the Goodwood Festival of Speed and Goodwood Revival, which he has owned for over 40 years.
The 'Michelin Supercar Run' was led up the hill by Chris Evans' 'Magnificent Seven', which comprises seven of the most important, iconic and beautiful Ferraris ever made: 250 SWB, 275 GTB4, 365 GTB4, 288 GTO, F40, 550 Barchetta and SA Aperta. Chris commented, "I only know about Ferraris. I'm quite busy and I've always been busy. There's only a certain amount of time in life to learn about things and I thought I'd know a bit more about Ferraris."
