Ferrari may be synonymous with cars, but did you know they also built a hydroplane inspired by Achille Castoldi in the early 1950s? That’s right, Castoldi persuaded then Ferrari racing drivers Alberto Ascari and Luigi Villoresi to influence Enzo Ferrari to supply him with a 4.5-litre, V12 Ferrari engine. That engine was then installed in a Timossi three-point racing hydroplane hull. Read more for a video, additional pictures and information.
Tuning shop Novitec is back at it again, and their latest project is the Ferrari 488 Pista.

Ferrari has been known to be quite protective of its image, and when designer Philipp Plein posted an image of sneakers on his Ferrari to Instagram, the automaker wasn’t happy to say the least. Ferrari’s lawyer Fabrizio Sanna of Orsingher Ortu Avvocati Associati claims that Plein’s usage of images featuring Ferrari’s prized trademarks associates Ferrari “with a lifestyle [that is] totally inconsistent with [its] brand perception.” Read more for additional pictures and information.

German company Michalak wanted to establish themselves at the 1993 Frankfurt Motor Show, so what better way than to create a one-off supercar, and thus the Ferrari Conciso was born. Designer Bernd Michalak handcrafted the unique shape, and his team used aluminum to form the panels, while ditching the roof as well as the doors, for a simple, frameless windshield. To enter the car, you’ll have to step up and over the broad sills. Read more for a driving video, additional pictures and information.
Based on the 789-horsepower Ferrari 812 Superfast, Mansory’s Ferrari 812 Stallone makes the already menacing-looking supercar even more so by adding plenty of lightweight carbon-fiber components, like a new front spoiler, hood, side skirts, rear wing, and a new rear fascia with built-in double-diffuser. Power output of the 6.5-liter naturally-aspirated V-12 has also been boosted by reflashing the engine control unit and installing a throaty sports exhaust system. The Stallone now makes 830-hp (up from 789-hp) and 546 pound-feet of torque (up from 530 pound-feet), enabling it to accelerate from 0-62 mph in just 2.9-seconds, while topping out at 210 mph.

Ferrari claims the P80/C is its “most extreme one-off design ever” and was built exclusively for a longstanding collector. This track-only supercar is handcrafted almost entirely from carbon-fiber and has taken the automaker four years to build. It’s based on the 488 GT3 race car and is powered by a twin-turbocharged 3.9-liter V8 engine producing at least 660-horsepower. Unlike the 488 GT3, the P80/C features a revamped front splitter and rear diffuser, along with a special T-wing treatment above the engine bay inspired by the Scuderia Formula 1 cars, which reduces the length of airflow over the rear, and increases downforce.
