The Ultimate.

New cars are weird to us. On one hand, we love the design of new cars such as the BRZ, Camaro Z28, and Porsche Turbo S, and on the other, we HATE the size of the new BRZ, Camaro Z28 and Porsche Turbo S. It’s all personal tastes though. They just don’t make badass cars like the Ferrari F40 anymore. Or do they? There hasn’t been another Ferrari that’s touched us like the 458 Italia has. It’s organic, flowing body lines combined with the low and wide stance and proper Ferrari grunt has made us fall in love with the car. Oh, and it drives like a bat out of hell too.

This car is LOW

Last week we got a chance to check out a special 458 Challenge car brought to us by Ferrari of Houston and we were immediately drawn to it. It arrived on a flatbed (racecar) without any type of livery or decals, so to some, it looked like a bonafide street car. A street car with a giant adjustable wing, front dry carbon splitter, center locking race weels, all carbon interior and one loud ass motor. So maybe not so street car-ish, but still cool to see this race edition 458 without any kind of badging.

That Ferrari Lexan window makes our shots trippy

Oh lawd.

Almost better than yoga pants

No, that's not NOS

More Than We Can Afford.

Although we consider ourselves Ricers, some of us do like exotics too. What once plastered our bedroom walls with dream exotics along with TMNT and scantily clad women posters is now something we can look at in person and appreciate as an adult thanks to things like Houston Cars & Coffee.

This past Cars & Coffee, we were treated with both new and old Ferrari’s along with Ferrari race cars, and luckily, we managed to snap off a few photos.

Ahhh the Ferrari 458 Italia...

Higgins?

Now THAT is a crowd.

The white Speedlines on this F355 were so brilliant against the Ferrari Red

The KING of the street.

Keep Tuning,

Nostalgic Wednesday: THE FERRARI 288 GTO Evoluzione

the Evoluzione Project

the evoluzione project

I don’t know where to start, but I will say that the Ferrari F40 is just too awesome in epic proportions of all time!!! (Insert Kanye West). A car that needs no introduction is the F40, for the car itself is already an introduction.  Rated by many automotive enthusiasts as one of the greatest super cars ever built. The F40 was the last car commissioned by the late Enzo Ferrari, built to celebrate 40 years of production at Maranello.

born to be wild

To most, the F40 is the titan of Ferraris, the late Enzo’s last hurrah, his Mona Lisa! Sorry to break hearts but, as much as I adore the F40, it is a rehash of our today’s Nostalgic Wednesday topic. I know it’s a bold statement to say but it is a known fact that the F40 was built as a downgraded road worthy version of the 288 GTO Evoluzione.
