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.
LaFerrari official launch promo
The wraps are finally off the LaFerrari. The Prancing Horse's
eagerly-anticipated limited-series special, of which just 499 will be
built, made its world debut today at the Geneva International Motor Show.
FERRARI 458 SPIDER OFFICIALLY REVEALED
The world's first mid-rear engined berlinetta equipped with a retractable
hard top debuts at the Frankfurt Motor Show.
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
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 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
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

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.
