What you’re looking at is the world’s first and only 1989 Ferrari 412 turned El Camino-style pickup. This conversion was shown on the History Channel’s ‘Ultimate Wheels’ show (Season 1, Episode 1) and basically consisted of replacing the rear seats with an wood-clad open bed. A parcel shelf was also added behind the seats, but unfortunately, they had to remove the original 4.9L V12 engine and replace it with a 5.7L small-block Chevy V8, paired with an original GM 3-sped automatic transmission.

Some gamers may already know that Marcello Gandini’s designs from the ’80s and ’90s shaped most of Cyberpunk 2077 vehicles’ looks, but what if the game had a futuristic Ferrari? Well, it might look something like the FerRAR.exe by designer Leyang Bai. This electric hypercar pays tribute to the Ferrari 312 P, but adds sleek directional wheels flanked by aerodynamic blades, LED-accented headlights, and minimalist amber taillights.

It’s not everyday that you see a 1998 Ferrari F355 Spider, much less one previously owned by ex-NBA superstar Shaquille O’Neal. Unlike the standard model, this one had its factory soft top and fuel tank removed to allow for more seating space. It comes finished in a sleek Argento Nürburgring (101/C) silver and comes with a custom two-tone black / silver interior. Power comes from a 3.5-liter V8 generating 375 hp and 268 lb-ft of torque, mated to a a six-speed automated F1 transaxle. Read more for additional pictures, information and a bonus MTV Cribs video.

Some already know that the Dakar Rally is an off-road endurance event that takes place over rough terrain much tougher than that used in conventional rallying, and the vehicles used are typically true off-road vehicles rather than modified production cars. What if Ferrari designed a model that could be used for both the street and rallying? Introducing the CascoRosso Concept by designer Dejan Hristov. Read more for additional pictures and information.
Powered by the 488-sourced 3.0L twin-turbocharged V8 engine generating 700 horsepower, mated to a reinforced gearbox with a carbon fiber clutch, the limited edition Ferrari 488 GT Modificata is designed to be a track-only supercar. The modifications don’t stop there, as the revamped aerodynamic elements shift the vehicle’s pressure center forward, thus generating more downforce (2,204-pounds at 142 mph) up front without increasing drag.

First came the SF90 Stradale, and now, Ferrari has unveiled the SF90 Spider, the automaker’s first plug-in-hybrid roadster. It’s powered by a mid-mounted, twin-turbocharged 4.0-liter V8 generating 769 horsepower, paired with three electric motors fed by a 7.9-kWh battery pack, generating a combined 986hp, mated to an 8-speed DCT transmission, enabling it to accelerate from 0 to 62 mph in just 2.5 seconds. At 3,682-pounds, its retractable hardtop can be lowered or raised in 14 seconds and operated when the car is moving at low speeds. Read more for two videos, additional pictures and information.
Yes, this 1952 Ferrari V12 ‘Arno XI’ is real and not a fan creation. It was inspired by Achille Castoldi in the early 1950s and built by the Cantiere Timossi boatyard, located in Azzano on Lake Como, Italy. This watercraft is powered by a 4.5L V12 engine producing 385 hp, the same one Ferrari used for their 1951 Grand Prix victory in the 375 F1, installed on a Timossi three-point racing hydroplane hull.

For those who have never heard of the Suzuki SC100 (Cervo), it’s essentially a microcar that was first introduced in 1976 as the successor to the Suzuki Fronte Coupé. The owner of this one decided to transform it into a bizarre Ferrari F40 knockoff, complete with a custom body kit and massive rear wing. Unfortunately, it doesn’t have a twin-turbocharged 2.9L V8 engine producing 471 hp, but rather a 970 cc four-cylinder F10A engine producing a mere 46 hp, enabling it to top out at 89 mph.
