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.
Jaw-dropping Ferrari 458 Italia Action
Ferrari is showing off the 562 horsepower car with
improvements to fuel consumption and CO2 emissions that, they say, sets
"the benchmark in this segment."
Using a mid-rear mounted 4.5-liter V8 engine, the 458 goes from 0-100 km/h
in under 3.4 seconds on its way to a top speed of 325 km/h. The driver
controls the engine with the Getrag F1 transmission, a 7-speed dual-clutch
gearbox. It has a 407 hp to tonne power-to-weight ratio, with a dry weight
of about 1380 kg.
2012 Porsche 911 (991) TV-commercial
Porsche has officially released the 2012 911 (991) model.
As expected, the 911 has been stretched some, with a wheelbase 100 mm (10
cm/3.9 inches) longer than it's predecessor.
The new 911 Carrera also comes with a body made of intelligent
aluminum-steel for reduced weight and greater rigidity. The car has a wider
track at the front and rides on 20-inch wheels.
Under that rear bonnet comes a 3.4 liter boxer engine with 350 PS (257 kW /
345 bhp) for the standard Carrera and a 3.8 liter with 400 PS (294 kW / 394
bhp) for the Carrera S (torque figures were not provided).
The Carrera S with the PDK transmission does the 0 to 100 km/h sprint in
just 4.3 seconds - 4.1 with the Sport Plus function in the optional Sport
Chrono package. Those numbers are 4.6 and 4.4 seconds, respectively, for
the standard 911 Carrera.
Other technologies available include the Porsche Dynamic Chassis Control
(PDCC), available for the first time on the Carrera S, which provides an
optimized cornering with intelligent distribution of lateral forces.
The 2012 Porsche 911 will make its global debut at the Frankfurt motor show
on September 13. The model goes on sale on December 3 but will start taking
orders as early as September 1.
Prices in Germany will start at €88,038 for the 911 Carrera and
€102,436 for the Carrera S, VAT included. In the United Kingdom 911
models will be in Porsche Centers from December 17, 2011 at £71,449 and
£81,242, respectively. Prices in the U.S. are listed at a base MSRP of
$82,100 and $96,400 (excluding destination).

Ferrari F430 Spider drifting + donuts
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.

Ferrari 458 Spider Nailed - /CHRIS HARRIS ON CARS
Don't ask how I came to be driving it. I'm a year late to this review, so
most people already know what they need to know. But do they know what the
Spider is like if you drive it like a mentalist? They will now.
