Right before the start of the race weekend of the Italian Grand Prix in Monza, Fernando Alonso wanted to try the new 458 Spider, which will be presented at the IAA Frankfurt next Tuesday. The Scuderia Ferrari driver enjoyed the potential of the 8-cylinder mid-rear engine from the Prancing Horse - with hard top and fitted with the same most advanced technological content as the multi-awarded 458 Italia and now available in an "en plein air" version - on the roads around Maranello.
Alonso was extremely satisfied with the perfect combination of high performance, exceptional handling and the engine sound the 458 Spider is able to deliver.
Usain Bolt test drives Ferrari 458 Italia and 599 GTB at Fiorano
Usain Bolt, world-record holder and gold medal winner at the Olympic Games
over 100 and 200 metres, experienced a special day in Maranello, where he
tested a 458 Italia and 599 GTB Fiorano on the circuit of the Prancing
Horse. The sprinter was excited in the cars as a passenger next to the
test-drivers Dario Benuzzi and Raffaele De Simone, while later on he
completed some laps himself behind the wheel. At the end of the day he
couldn't hide his love for the 458 Italia. "It's a little bit like me, very
reactive and determined!"
Later on Bolt joked about the high heartbeat provoked by test-driver Dario
Benuzzi, who showed him how to control the car on a wet track. "I was
really scared, but it was a good scare. I'm excited like a child." "Today,"
Bolt added, "I feel very close to the team. I am sorry for yesterday's
result, but that's sport, I know what I'm talking about. There are ups and
downs, but it's important to know how to get back on the track and I'm
convinced that Ferrari knows how to do that."
The tour ended with a visit to the atelier, Ferrari's personalisation area,
where Bolt met Ferrari CEO , Amedeo Felisa.
Ferrari's Alonso and Massa ride world's fastest rollercoaster at Ferrari World
The Scuderia Ferrari Marlboro drivers visited Ferrari World Abu Dhabi, the
theme park centred on the Maranello marque. It is located on Yas Island,
the venue which hosts the nineteenth and final round of the Formula 1 World
Championship. Felipe and Fernando arrived in the Emirates on Tuesday night
to bring the curtain down on this closely contested season and today they
were taken to the Scuderia Challenge, an attraction in the park which
allows people to tackle a simulated lap of the Yas Marina Circuit at the
wheel of a 430 Scuderia Challenge car. Four journalists were in attendance,
Ottavio Daviddi of Tutto Sport, Stefano Mancini of La Stampa, Laurent Dupin
of TF1 and Julien Febreau of Europe 1. These men were the top qualifiers of
a competition held yesterday for the international media.
The two drivers were bubbling with excitement having just experienced the
Formula Rossa, the world's fastest rollercoaster. "Really incredible," was
the unanimous verdict of Fernando Alonso who won the first race on the
simulator and Felipe Massa, at the end of the breathtaking lap. "Thanks to
this attraction, all lovers of speed, like us will be able to experience,
for once in their lives at least, the unique sensation of being launched
into the air at 240 kilometres per hour, as well as enjoying what is a
truly great day for all real Ferrari fans."
Ferrari 458 Speciale - promo
The Ferrari 458 Speciale has a dry weight of 1,290 kg (2,843 lbs) and can
perform the 0-62 mph (0-100 km/h) run in just three seconds, while 0-124
mph (0-200 km/h) takes 9.1 seconds. The Speciale has managed to lap the
Fiorano test track in 1 minute 23.5 seconds, making it 1.5s quicker than
the 458 Italia.
Ferrari cooperated with Pininfarina for 458 Speciale's styling which is
mostly the result of various aerodynamic tweaks. For example, it comes with
front and rear moveable aerodynamic flaps that automatically adapt to
reduce drag and balance downforce as necessary. It also comes with a Side
Slip Angle Control (SSC) system that can analyze the car's slip angle,
compare it to a target figure and then optimizes torque management through
the traction control system and torque distribution between the two wheels.

Ferrari F430 Spider drifting + donuts
Follow me on Facebook and Instagram!

Yesterday I had the opportunity of shooting this Ferrari F430 Spider doing
some insane donuts and drifting! He started with a brand new set of tires
and burned all the rubber off. The owner of the car used to drive rally
cars in Europe and is a huge fan of Ken Block and everything Ken Block does
for the rally sport community in the United States. The Ferrari sounds
absolutely insane while shredding tires. This isn't the first time the
owner has gone drifting in it because he shows great car control.
Also to let everyone know I am doing the Bullrun rally this week in a
Lamborghini LP640 so hopefully I will have a lot more videos coming soon!
Ferrari 458 Spider Runs Over Cop

I was walking around Soho, NYC today when I stumbled upon this Ferrari 458
Spider with a cop writing a ticket next to it. I started to record the
situation because I thought it'd make a cool video, little did I know what
I was in for. As soon as I started recording the owner of the car appeared
and got in it. He slowly started moving since he refused to accept the
ticket (the car was parked in a hotels valet zone and the hotel valet had
the keys, I myself don't understand why the cop was giving him the ticket,
it was approved by the hotel that the car was parked there.) The cop then
told him to stop but he proceeded to move forward. Now at this point I
believe the cops foot was under the front drivers side tire. Yet again the
owner moved the car forward and apparently he somewhat ran over the cops
foot (or at least that's what can be made out from everything in the video,
others at the scene claimed otherwise.) This triggered the cop and he
slammed his hand into the drivers window and proceed to open the door
(notice how many times he bumped it into the taxi cab) and pull the driver
out forcefully. The driver was then thrown on the ground and handcuffed and
arrested. The owners girlfriend seen in the video is also Stephanie Pratt
from the MTV hit show, The Hills. The car did suffer some damage, paint
chips on the door from when the cop slammed it into the cab and some scuffs
by the engine bay shown in the last scene of this video. Pretty crazy
situation, I was definitely at the right place at the right time!
The video was shot with a Canon 7D.

Lamborghini Gallardo Sound + ACCIDENT!!
I have filmed a friend's Lamborghini Gallardo during a trackday event.
Video shows first some track scenes. At the end of the day my friend left
the racetrack. The main road was very tight, there was another car coming
from the opposite way. Worried about scratching his car against the other,
my friend moved too much on the right side of the road and half of the car
fell down. Actually, we were in the countryside, in the middle of nowhere.
It was a pretty difficult situation to move the car. Before all the haters
starts to write negative comments about my friend.. it's just an accident,
it could happen to everyone.
