A yellow Ferrari LaFerrari recently fetched $3-million on eBay, and it's no surprise, considering that only 499 were produced.

Automotive designer Fernando Pastre Fertona gives us a first look at what its successor could look like, in the form of "LaRossa". Continue reading for more pictures and information.
We have seen the future of hypercars, and it looks like the Ferrari 612 GTO III by auto designer Sasha Selipanov. The front headlights are inspired by the McLaren 570S, 650S and P1, as they seamlessly border the large air intakes on both sides of the vehicle, while a wide grille and a trio of intakes cover the hood.

The Porsche 918 Spyder is powered by a naturally aspirated 4.6-litre V8 engine, developing 608 metric horsepower (447 kW), with two electric motors delivering an additional 279 metric horsepower (205 kW) for a combined output of 887 metric horsepower (652 kW). Even though its power numbers are quite impressive to say the least, the vehicle just doesn't have enough room for long trips. Yasid Design solves that with a shooting brake (station wagon) version of the hypercar. Continue reading to see shooting brakes of the McLaren P1 GTR, Ferrari FXX K and Bugatti Chiron.
From afar, auto enthusiasts could mistake this for just another red 1932 Ford Coupe, but it's actually a fully-customized hot rod. What sets this apart from the others is its 3.0-liter V8 sourced from either a late 1980s Ferrari Mondial or 308 GTB, which has been twin-turbocharged. The engine now generates a monstrous 950-horsepower, mated to a 6-speed Tremec transmission with a competition-spec clutch. Other modifications include: an independent rear suspension, KW shocks, 18" alloys, 15-inch disc brakes with four-pot calipers, a full roll cage, five-point harnesses, and a scarlet red paint job. How much will this mashup cost? Well, MP Classics in West Hollywood, California wants $250,000. Click here to view the first image in this week's funny demotivational posters gallery.

This bizarre modified 1980s pickup truck was spotted in Florida, and modeled after the Ferrari Testarossa. It sports a host of prancing-horse badges, Pirelli tires on five-spoke modular alloys, and Pininfarina badges on the quarter panels. Unfortunately, this owner did not opt for the iconic side strakes and vents on the rear fenders. Continue reading for more pictures and information.
Auto enthusiasts know that 1967 was a banner year for the Enzo Ferrari motor company, as it saw the production of the mid-engined 330 P4, a renowned V12 endurance car meant to replace the previous year's P3. Only four Ferrari P4-engined cars were ever made: three new 330 P4s and one ex P3 chassis (0846). Their three-valve cylinder head was modeled after those of Italian Grand Prix-winning Formula One cars. To this was added the same fuel injection system from the P3 for an output of up to 450-horsepower. Continue reading for more interesting historical photos from around the web.
Mike Tyson had quite the stable of supercars during his heyday as a professional boxer, and it included this Ferrari F50. This particular model only has 5,694 miles on the odometer, with the exterior, interior, as well a engine bay described as in "immaculate condition." Kevin Uy for RM Sotheby's captured these stunning images before it officially heads to auction, where it's expected to fetch $2.3-million.

Adriano Raeli, an Italian automotive designer, created the "F80" while studying in Pasadena, California. This hypercar pays homage to the futuristic aviation shapes, the human form, as well as the work of futurism-movement artists, including Umberto Boccioni. However, one thing's for sure, if it does have a 100% carbon-fiber monocoque, the vehicle should be just as light as the LaFerrari, while boasting far higher power numbers. That's right, it's reported to have a 1,200-horsepower hybrid-drivetrain, which pairs a twin-turbo V8 combustion engine (900 ps) with a Kinetic Energy Recovery System (300 ps). Continue reading for more pictures and information.
We have seen the future of supercars, and they look like the Ferrari Manifesto. Featuring an air scoop on the roof and most stunning of all, split cockpit that opens up with canopy-like clamshell doors. Aesthetically, you'll find a single line extending from the nose, rising between the arched fenders, while the rear wheels are spaced from the tapering greenhouse in a manner, similar to those on the Ford GT.

Rain Prisk Designs is back at it again, and this time, they've revealed a Supercamer LaFerrari. Building upon the hypercar chassis, it's been lifted and fitted with a set of Goodyear off-road tires, a chain wrapped grille-guard, and a load-bearing rack used to house a collapsible ladder-equipped rooftop tent. If this concept ever becomes a reality, we can only hope that the owner used a previously wrecked LaFerrari to modify, rather than a pristine condition model.
