New Poll!  
 
The right answer to the last poll was ofcourse: Ferrari 408, 85% of the 170 voters had it right!

The 408 was built in 1987 as the first 4 wheel drive Ferrari ever! The concept car had an aluminium chassis that
only weighed 83 kg! The 408 was powered by a 4 litre V8, midengine.

ItalianHorses...how to built a model  
 
A great site by Alex Kustov, ItalianHorses.net. Filled with info about how to built a great (Ferrari) miniature. All with nice and detailed pictures. What about tutorials with info about:
How To Use Flocking to Simulate Interior Carpeting;
How To Use Foil to Enhance Window Trim;
How to Apply, Polish, and Wax Your Paint to Perfection

And the result...well just look at the details of this Enzo...a kit from Tamiya! Isn't it fantastic?

Testing continous  
 
Michael Schumacher was for the second day testing at Valencia yesterday. Again he was working on a test for the tyres, but also some aerodinamic adjustments. Still driving in the F2003GA he was (again) the number two of the day. This time Montoya (1.09.306), in the new Williams, beat the Ferrari (1.09.427) time, but with a really small margin.

Let's say you are one of the lucky ones who ownes a Ferrari Testarossa. A nice black one. You drive it and have lot's of fun. Although...you think it's a bit slow...(?)
So what do you do? You let Norwood Performance add a bit spice to the engine:

Twin Turbo Charged to handle up to 1500 HP currently tuned down to 960 hp+ at Crank - 880 hp+ at Wheels - up to 22 lbs of boost. 200+ MPH on regular 93 octane Chevron pump gas!

And then you say: "This is a sick machine, I'm scared of it, but I get in and spook myself anyway...". And then put it up for sale at Ebay: US $45,803.00

Any information?  
 
Does anybody has any information about this car? All I know is that is a 212 Inter Cabriolet, with a body of the Englisch carbuilder Abbott. This was the only Ferrari he (re)designed. The serialnumber is 0165 EL. It was built in 1952. Supposedly it's now located in Australia (Dutton Sporting Cars?). Does anyone have recent pictures of it??

Happy to be in the car!  
 
When Michael Schumacher went back on the track, the first time since the final race last year, he was very happy. "I felt a little bit nervous, but when I finished my first lap everything felt perfect," he told reporters yesterday. "It was a great feeling to be back at the team and back at the track."
Yesterday Michael drove with the car of last year the second best time of the day! Today he's also busy testing at Barcelona.

Schumachers first day...in 2004  
 
Today was the first day that Schumacher was back on the track. He did a complete test with the F2003-GA, the car of last year.
He wasn't the fastest in Barcelona, and nobody espected that...I mean, he was driving last years car...so, was he fifth, sixth? Worse? No...he was second!!! Only Button (!) in his BAR was quicker than Michael. Button drove his car in 1.14.607 around the track (he drove 85 laps in total) and Schumachers quickest lap was 1.15.410 (in total he drove 95 laps).
Third was Alonso in the new Renault and only the fourth time was for Ralf Schumacher in the new Williams, with 1.15.736. The fifth time was for Ferrari testdriver Luca Badoer.
Montoya didn't came closer than the seventh time...also in the new Williams!

Ferrari...best Italian company  
 
This year, for the second time running, managers and captains of industry of the top 1000 companies in the world have voted Ferrari the most esteemed Italian company.

The "2004 World's Most Respected Companies" survey, was conducted by the Financial Times and PriceWaterhouse-Coopers.

As a consequence, Ferrari also led the field in the classification of Italian companies, beating off Pirelli, Luxottica, Barilla and Ferrero.

F512 M roadster  
 
I new that there was a cabrio version of the Testarossa, like you can see at the picture (the yellow car). But the F512M roadster is new for me. Had never seen it before. It doesn't look bad! It kinda looks good, except for the rims...don't like those, but that's my humble opinion. The car is for sale at barrett-jackson.

Interior 612 Scaglietti  
 

The 612 Scaglietti, the new 2+2 Ferrari. Some think it's ugly, but most (for what I've heared) like it very much. A few months ago the first drawings were published by Ferrari. When people talked about them, you could here one thing: the real car would probably look completely different.
Well...here I've taken part of the drawing of the interior and put it over the real interior...and...it defenitly looks the same!! Well done Ferrari!!

    2004 Testing has started!  
     
    Testing started this year at Jerez. Badoer and Massa tested three F2003-GAs and did a complete test. They focussed on new electronics and tyres. Both drivers drove 59 laps and Massa was, with a 1:18.996, just a little bit faster than his teammate. But his time was only good for the 6th overall. Montoya also tested his, new, Williams FW26. He drove 51 laps and had the best time: 1.16.699.

    It's not yet officialy released, but Hotwheels/Mattel already finished the 1/18 miniature of it: the 612 Scaglietti. Do you like it? I do...but I have second thoughts about the color...perhaps a darker red...or a blue would be slightly better :) Found the picture on the FerrariChat forum. No more info available at the moment.
