There is carbon fiber galore aboard this modified Maranello hybrid supercar

Ferrari SF90 Stradale, the Italian automaker’s first plug-in hybrid supercar, has drawn the attention of car tuning company 1016 Industries, which revealed a wild aftermarket bodywork pack for the thousand-horsepower supercar.

US-based 1016 Industries is renowned for tuning some of the most exclusive and exotic cars in the world and for its pioneering use of carbon fiber and 3D printing, often merging the two to come up with truly unique designs.

Continuing their work in creating exquisite kits for coveted supercars, they now crafted a carbon fiber Ferrari SF90 Stradale. Carrying a blacked-out exterior with pristine, contrasting white accents, the Ferrari is equipped with a range of new body panels to emphasize its already sporty design.

A front splitter gives the vehicle a more aggressive look, complemented by flap vents on the hood and sleek approaches to the side skirts. The rear is now occupied by a massive diffuser that works in tandem with the expanded rear spoiler as well as one installed on the end of the roof. You’ll also find new star-spoke alloy wheels from 1016 Industries down low to round out the look.

1016 Industries will only produced small numbers of the carbon fiber body kit. On the tuner’s list of limited-edition components there are front bumper flaps ($5,800/5,548 Euro), a new front lip ($7,200/6,888 Euro), hood vents ($6,200/5,930 Euro), new side skirts ($7,200/6,888 Euro), a rear diffuser ($12,800/12,243 Euro), as well as a trunk spoiler ($5,800/5,548 Euro) and a roof spoiler ($6,200/5,930 Euro).

If you make the calculations, getting the whole package will amount to $51,200 (49,000 Euro), and the figure will increase even further if you go for the 2×2 carbon fiber pattern. Alternatively, you can buy a fully-built SF90 Stradale with the kit for $676,200 USD.

The Ferrari SF90 Stradale was already a head-turner, to be honest, but this body kit makes it look even more enticing. Just as a reminder, the SF90 Stradale is a 986bhp beast that can go from 0 to 62mph in 2.5secs and to 124mph in 6.7secs.

Ferrari officially teases its Purosangue SUV

“You’ve heard the rumors, and we’re delighted to confirm that some of them are true”, said the Prancing Horse of Maranello on social media. This caption is joined by the very first design preview of the Purosangue, which is the Italian automaker’s very first utility vehicle and five-door vehicle.

‘Il commendatore’ Enzo Ferrari may be rolling in his grave as we speak, but on the other hand, it’s all in vain. Considering how many examples of the Urus are sold each year by the Raging Bull of Sant’Agata Bolognese, it’s the perfect moment for the Prancing Horse of Maranello to launch a great-handling sport utility vehicle.

With most high-end marques producing a high-performance SUV, many enthusiasts have hoped that Ferrari wouldn’t cave with a model of its own. Well, it’s coming and the Italian supercar builder has released an official first look at the vehicle, which the company is calling a ‘genuine game changer’ and a ‘car whose bloodline can be traced back through our 75-year history of innovation, evolution and uncompromising performance’.  

But no word has been said on the engine that will power Ferrari’s first SUV. While it’s unlikely to be a V12, it could be a V8 or perhaps a similar V6 Hybrid from the 296 GTB. Regardless, power is likely to be on par with the Lamborghini Urus, Aston Martin DBX, and undoubtedly more than models like the Mercedes-AMG G63. Only time will tell what exactly that means but one thing’s for sure. It’s going to be very, very fast. Ferrari plans to reveal its first-ever SUV later this year. 

Stay tuned to Yakymour for official information. For now, take a look at the teaser above. Come into the beautiful world of Ferrari.

This Is Ferrari’s One-Off Omologata

Ferrari understands very well that people with a few million on the bank do not want to drive the same car as their immediate neighbor, who lives 300 meters away. That is why as a valued customer (so you have to get some ‘standard’ Ferraris first) you can knock on the door for a one-off.

Ferrari will then build a unique model especially for you. You can then be 100 percent sure that there is no one else with the exact same car. The latest one-off is this Ferrari Omologata, based on the 812 Superfast.

One-off Ferrari’s are a rarity, so news of the Italian marque’s new Omologata is rather exciting. The Omologata is featuring a coachbuilt body that exploits “the proportions of the potent, mid-front layout”, as Ferrari says. 

The Omologata was commissioned by an unnamed European client and the brief was to create “a futuristic design with distinctive elements reinterpreted in a fresh manner to provide potential for a timeless shape that is certain to leave a lasting impression”. The name makes it clear that the Omologata also had to be equally at ease on the road as on the track.

Somebody in Europe clearly found the 2020 Ferrari 812 Superfast’s exterior to be a touch on the busy side, and opted to commission the Italian carmaker’s tenth one-off GT since 2009.

Like the story usually goes with these specials, the project took two years to complete, with Ferrari VP of Design Flavio Manzoni penning a hand-formed aluminum body that still wouldn’t clash with the 812 Superfast’s global crash homologation. Mind you, according to Maranello, the track-only mid-engine P80/C announced last year was a four-year job.

The Omologata even gets its own shade of Ferrari red, dubbed ‘Rosso Magma’. Finished in three layers of paint, it’s set over a darkened carbon fiber finish and is accompanied by exclusive racing-inspired decalsThe new Ferrari Omologata shares only its windshield and headlights with the 812 Superfast it’s based on, at least when it comes to its exterior panels.

With its round taillights and more pronounced grille, the overall result has a much more traditional feel than Ferrari’s latest gran turismo, the V8 Roma. The idea from the onset was to create a futuristic design with distinctive elements reinterpreted in a fresh manner to provide potential for a timeless shape that is certain to leave a lasting impression.

The objective was to exploit the proportions of the potent, mid-front layout to deliver a very sleek design defined by smooth volumes and undulating reflections, uplifted by sharp graphics with sparingly distilled surface breaks wherever dictated by aerodynamic functions. The trickiest aspect was striking the ideal balance between expressiveness and restraint: the Omologata had to ooze street presence whilst maintaining a very pure formal language.

The designers carefully studied the stance and attitude of the car from all angles, defining a tapering front volume from the flattened oval grille. The rounded section over the front wheelarches, emphasized by a contrasting stripe wrapping across the bonnet, seems to naturally extrude from the grille.

Rear of the door, the flank develops into a very potent rear muscle that neatly blends upwards into the three-quarter panel. The entire volume is rendered deliberately imposing through the elimination of the rear quarter light, while three horizontal transversal cuts in the fastback volume visually lower the rear mass.

The tail is surmounted by a prominent spoiler which adds not only downforce, but a more aggressive, sporty stance. Overall, the car appears to be poised to attack the tarmac even at a standstill and, seen from the rear, the deeply set single taillights underline the tension.

A fitting one-off exercise, the Omologata manages to encompass a range of subtle Ferrari signature design cues without falling into nostalgia. Its hand-crafted aluminium bodywork is sprinkled with almost subliminal details, in a way that challenges the enthusiast to identify the various sources of inspiration that played a part into its inception.

The 812 Superfast’s underpinnings and V12 engine remain, meaning the Omologata also packs 789 BHP which is good to push it well over 200 MPH.

I would argue that it achieved what it wanted. The Omologata corrects a few tiny details that to me seems to be misses on the 812 Superfast, done purely because the latest V12 is an evolution of the Ferrari F12, and thus had to be dialed up in all respects, except maybe for how tricky an F12 can be to drive.

Let’s choose not to talk about rear visibility at all, taking a peek at the cabin instead. Inside the car, it’s all about nods to Ferrari’s racing heritage, electric blue seats finished in a combination of leather and Jeans Aunde fabric with 4-point racing harnesses, stand out against a full black interior. Ferrari even deleted the rear quarter lights to make the atmosphere even more focused.

The electric blue seats, finished in a combination of leather and Jeans Aunde fabric, feature 4-point racing harnesses stand out against a full black interior.

The metal parts of the dashboard and steering wheel are finished with the crackled paint effect, which is supposed to remind us of GT racers of the 1950s and 1960s, as well as with Ferrari’s engine cam covers. With that in mind, both the inner door handles and the Ferrari F1 bridge have this hammered paint finish.

The 2020 Ferrari Omologata, the tenth one-off V12 from Maranello since 2009 leaves us with one question this week. Would you take home this unique multi-million-dollar creation based on the 812 Superfast, or one of Touring Superleggera’s upcoming Touring Aero 3s based on the F12? With custom Ferraris, it’s always a tough one.

Take a look at the one-off Ferrari Omologata; and note, that’s about as close as we’ll probably ever get to it, seeing this has been coachbuilt for one very lucky, discerning Ferrari customer.

Ferrari Fragrances release Limited Edition Amber Essence

Ferrari FF Cuoio Toscano .jpg

In a sea of eye-wateringly chemical colognes, Ferrari continues its line of sophisticated men’s fragrances with the elegant Amber Essence. As part of the Essence collection alongside Essence Oud, Essence Musk and more, this delicate-yet-strong fragrance is designed to evoke an individual facet of the Ferrari Gran Tourismo spirit.

Combining spicy amber with notes of frankincense, coriander and bergamot, the scent finishes with musk and patchouli for a lingering sensuality. Added nutmeg and cedar makes way for a pleasantly, invitingly warm feel to the fragrance.

Musky and dark, like the scent of rainfall in a forest, this Essence fragrance is an essential addition for any Ferrari collector, but also to those who value the highest quality and olfactory innovation in their colognes.

The bottle is eye-catchingly luxurious. A snug-fitting handcrafted sleeve, inspired by the light brown Cuoio Toscano interior of specific Ferrari GT’s (picture above of the Ferrari FF Pininfarina), encases the square bottle – think Chanel No.5 for men. Only 1,800 of these have been created, so missing the chance to own a bottle would be frankly, well, remiss.

 

 

 

 

This is the Ferrari GTC4 Lusso

Ferrari has given the FF a facelift. The changes also include another nameplate: GTC4 Lusso. The number 4 in the model name refers to the number of driving wheels, and to the number of seats of the fast car.

Under the hood of the GTC4 Lusso is of course a 12-cylinder engine, with an output of 690 hp at 8,000 rpm (the FF had 660 hp). The four-seater Ferrari has a weight-to-power ratio of 2.6 kg / hp. Torque also increased, from 683 to 697 Nm, and is released at 5,750 rpm, while 80% of the pulling power is available from just 1,750 rpm. The sprint time is also fine, the GTC4 Lusso goes from 0 to 100 km / h for 3.4 seconds. The top speed is 334 km / h.

The transmission is done on all four wheels, via Ferrari’s patented 4RM Evo system. As a first, this system was linked to rear-wheel steering and was given the name 4RM-S. Based on Ferrari’s Slip Slide Control, the system combines the electronic differential and SCM-E dampers.

Apart from some small detail, little has changed on the outside of the Italian shootingbrake. The GTC4 Lusso looks very similar to the FF, but for the first time since the F430 brought back the characteristic double round taillights for Ferrari.

The interior underwent a metamorphosis. The main eye-catcher is the 10.25-inch central screen of the infotainment system. Thanks to new (front) seats, there is more room for the rear passengers.

The Ferrari GTC4 Lusso will be in the showroom from June. Come into the beautiful world of Ferrari.
