1990 Ferrari F40 Coupe For Sale

1990-ferrari-f40-for-sale (600)

Fort Lauderdale Collection South is proud to present this 1990 Ferrari F40. The F40 was designed to celebrate Ferrari’s 40th anniversary and was the last Ferrari automobile personally approved by Enzo Ferrari. At the time it was the fastest, most powerful, and most expensive car that Ferrari sold to the public. Even by today’s standards, it is a true Supercar with very few rivals. On Top Gear, Richard Hammond and Jeremy Clarkson and both refer to the F40 as the “greatest supercar the world had ever seen”. Clarkson also said the F40 is one of the most beautiful cars ever made. Many share that opinion.

With a twin-turbo 2.9 liter V8 rated at 478 hp and 425 lb-ft of torque and lightweight construction of kevlar, carbon fiber and aluminum, the F40 will do 0-60 mph in just 3.8 seconds, the 1/4 mile in 11.8 seconds, and it has a top speed of 200 mph.

Just 213 of these cars were built for the US market, and this in an original, unmodified example with just 7548 miles on it. It is in outstanding condition and runs and drives like new. The car is finished in Rosso Corsa and has its correct Speedline wheels. Inside are red Nomex-covered racing buckets outfitted with the original Klippan seatbelts and a period-correct Pioneer stereo.

This car’s history includes a stint at the Petersen Automotive Museum in Los Angeles. There, it was displayed as not only one of the finest examples of the F40 extant but also as one of the most important automobiles to ever wear the Cavallino Rampante.  This is a true masterpiece that will only continue to increase in value.

2013 Novitec Rosso Ferrari F12berlinette N-Largo Photo Gallery

October 10, 2013 by  
Filed under Blog, Ferrari, Wheel & Tuning News

2013-Novitec-Rosso-Ferrari-F12berlinette (600)

That is the name of a spectacular widebody version for the Ferrari F12berlinetta presented by NOVITEC ROSSO, the leading global refinement specialist for the sports cars from Maranello.

The body conversion kit is manufactured from ultra-light yet ultra-strong carbon fiber, and represents a winning combination of exciting design and aerodynamic efficiency. Also part of the conversion are tailor-made three-piece NOVITEC ROSSO NF5 NL forged wheels combining 21-inch rims in the front and 22-inch rims on the rear axle. Further features are a revised suspension with front lift function, and a power upgrade to 574 kW / 781 hp, which propels the two-seater to a top speed of about 350 km/h.

Upon customer request NOVITEC ROSSO also customizes the cockpit to the N-LARGO’s owner’s personal preferences down to the last detail.

205 centimeters: with this impressive width the NOVITEC ROSSO N-LARGO widebody version surpasses its original by exactly eleven centimeters on the rear axle. To this end the designers developed strikingly styled fender flares that are seamlessly joined to the production body. The larger wheel arches, for which precise-fit liners were developed, then offer space for the NF5 NL wheels, which were custom-developed for the NOVITEC ROSSO N-LARGO. The three-piece wheels are manufactured using high-tech forging technology. But that’s not all: the widebody version also made it possible to design the wheels with an extremely concave wheel spider and five delicate double spokes. The size 12Jx22 rims are shod with Pirelli P ZERO high-performance tires in size 335/25 ZR 22.

The N-LARGO front fenders create a striking hour-glass-shape effect. They replace the production components in their entirety and add six centimeters to the width of the F12 on the front axle. To create a decidedly wedge-shaped appearance, front wheels in size 9.5Jx21 with an equally concave centerpiece were custom designed for this sports car. Tires in size 255/30 ZR 21 were selected as the perfect option.

The development of the front and rear fender flares not only focused on fascinating looks. A lengthwise slot is integrated into the back of each front fender flare to assist in venting the air heated by the ceramic brakes from the wheel wells as quickly as possible. The rear flares feature large integrated brake cooling ducts that route the relative wind to the deceleration components.

Strikingly styled rocker panels, available with a matte or high-gloss clear-coated carbon-fiber finish or painted in body or contrasting color, ensure a smooth airflow between the N-LARGO fenders on the front and rear axle.

Key factors in the aerodynamic properties and the appearance are of course the fascia and spoilers of the NOVITEC ROSSO special model. The front and rear fascia, which replace the production bumpers, were not only restyled to match the fender flares.

The shape of front fascia and the central front blade, optionally available with a clear-coated carbon-fiber finish, lend the two-seater a decidedly aggressive glance. Their styling, which was optimized in the wind tunnel, reduces negative lift and further improves handling stability.

The new carbon-fiber front grille is the perfect complement. The hood receives some added striking highlights with the N-LARGO air scoops on the left- and right-hand side as well as with the central air deflection insert. Carbon-fiber covers for the exterior mirrors provide the finishing touches.

In the rear the combination of five-piece diffuser on the N-LARGO fascia and the large rear airfoil create additional aerodynamic downforce at high speeds. The subtle separation edge on the roof, which like the other aerodynamic-enhancement components is available with a clear-coated carbon-fiber finish, lends the sports car a full-blooded racing look.

The molding for the central rear fog lamp and the black tinted NOVITEC ROSSO taillights also demonstrate the great love of detail.

To round out the striking appearance of the N-LARGO and to further enhance dynamic handling, NOVITEC ROSSO lowers the ride height of the car by up to 40 millimeters with the help of special sport springs. Steep ramps such as can be found in a parking garage or speed humps can be navigated more easily with the optional front lift system. At the push of a button the hydraulic height adjustment raises the front axle by about 40 millimeters. At a second push of the button or automatically upon reaching a speed of 80 km/h the ride height reverts to its original position.

To match the spectacular appearance, the NOVITEC ROSSO experts upgrade the 6.3-liter 12-cylinder four-valve engine. New mapping for the engine management system was developed in extensive test series on the test rigs and on the road. On the exhaust side a NOVITEC ROSSO high-performance quad exhaust, available with or without controlled butterfly valve, ensures exhaust emissions with low back pressure.

With 574 kW / 781 hp of power at 8,600 rpm and a peak torque increased to 722 Nm at 6,400 rpm the N-LARGO reaches a top speed of about 350 km/h.

NOVITEC ROSSO also offers custom exclusivity for the interior. The cockpit can be designed in leather and Alcantara in any desired color.

2014 Ferrari 458 Speciale Photo Gallery

August 29, 2013 by  
Filed under Blog, Ferrari, News

2014-Ferrari-458-Speciale-Luxury-Auto (8)

 

The 458 Speciale is the latest product of Ferrari’s core philosophy of extreme technological innovation and research which, in this instance, has yielded powertrain, aerodynamics and vehicle dynamics advances that transform the already exceptional 458 Italia into a car genuinely worthy of the “Speciale” moniker. The result is a completely new, uncompromising, streamlined sports car concept.

Many of the sophisticated solutions being applied for the very first time to an in-range car in the 458 Speciale, including its advanced active aerodynamics, will become a standard feature of all new Ferraris in the future.

Flanked in the Maranello marque’s range by the multi-award-winning 458 Italia and 458 Spider, the new mid-rear-engined V8 berlinetta was designed to boost both performance and driving emotion to unprecedented levels, yet simultaneously guarantee smooth, effortless control in all kinds of situations.

Having lavished meticulous attention on the power unit that was named “Best Performance Engine” at the International Engine of the Year Awards for two consecutive years, Ferrari has now built its most powerful naturally aspirated V8 ever (605 cv) with an extraordinary specific power output of 135 cv/l , the highest ever achieved by a road-going naturally aspirated engine.

Thanks to an equally exceptional weight/power ratio of just 2.13 kg/cv, the 458 Speciale can sprint from 0 to 100 km/h in a mere 3.0” (0-200 km/h in 9.1”) and also clocked a lap time of just 1’23”5 at the Fiorano Circuit.

Aerodynamic requirements guided the work of the Ferrari Styling Centre, which led the project in cooperation with Pininfarina, to sculpt the car’s forms to ensure they were more performance-oriented than ever. The most notable features in this sense are the front and rear movable aerodynamics which balance downforce and cut drag, thus helping make the 458 Speciale the most aerodynamically efficient range production car in Ferrari history (E Index of 1.5)

The technology used in the vehicle dynamics subsystems which gives the driver instant confidence and control at high speeds, natural power oversteer management and precise response to commands are further advances in an area in which Ferrari is already a well-established leader.

One of the most innovative content of the 458 Speciale is the Side Slip angle Control system (SSC) which makes it easier to achieve car control on the limit, thereby greatly improving driving emotions. Thanks to the development of an accurate new algorithm SSC performs instant-to-instant analysis of the car’s side slip, comparing it with the target value and then optimising both torque management (via integration with F1-Trac traction control) and torque distribution between the two wheels (via integration with the E-Diff electronic differential).

Part and parcel of the car’s development included Michelin Pilot Sport Cup2 tyres which were specifically honed for it in an intensive collaboration programme involving, amongst other factors, numerous track test and simulator sessions. Conceived for the 458 Speciale, they boost performance over a single lap in the dry as well as improving performance consistency in subsequent laps. They also allow the car to avail of maximum available grip in the wet.

The abovementioned technical content has improved the 458 Speciale’s single lap time and also delivers repeatability of that performance on subsequent laps that is absolutely unprecedented for a car not designed exclusively for track use. The result is that the 458 Speciale has the fastest response time (0.060 s) and highest lateral acceleration (1.33 g) ever achieved by a car in the Prancing Horse range.

The 458 Speciale will receive its public world debut at the Frankfurt International Motor Show in September.

NOVITEC ROSSO Ferrari F12 Berlinetta Photo Gallery

August 16, 2013 by  
Filed under Blog, Ferrari, News

An athletic design in combination with outstanding aerodynamic efficiency, high-tech forged wheels and a power increase to 569 kW / 774 hp with a top speed in excess of 345 km/h: NOVITEC ROSSO, the leading refinement specialist for the sports cars from Maranello, expands its extensive customization program for the Ferrari F12berlinetta.

Painted or clear-coated carbon fibers with a matt finish like in Formula One or with a high-sheen surface sealer: the NOVITEC ROSSO designers lend the current top-of-the-line model in the Ferrari product range an even more sporty appearance. Its development not only focused on the car’s looks: all bodywork components received their finishing touches in the wind tunnel and consequently optimize the sports car’s handling stability.

To further minimize negative lift on the front axle, NOVITEC ROSSO offers a three-piece aerodynamics upgrade, which consists of a front spoiler lip with attached air ducts and a central front blade. The upgrade increases downforce in the front at high speeds. But that’s not all: the spoilers in conjunction with the new surrounds for the brake air scoops, the hood insert and the front grille lend the F12 an even more striking nose.

The new rocker panels calm the airstream between the front and rear wheel arches and add some more visual muscle to the sports car’s appearance. The carbon-fiber covers for the exterior mirrors and the black side markers stylishly round out the view from the side.

The NOVITEC ROSSO designers’ marks are also clearly in evidence in the rear: despite its discrete appearance the rear separation edge is a factor in the optimal aerodynamic balance of the F12berlinetta as is the rear diffuser. The latter attaches to the production rear fascia and can be further enhanced visually with optional diffuser fins and a fascia cover made from clear-coated carbon fibers. The great love of detail is also evident in the carbon-fiber surrounds for the rear fog lamps and the tail lights, which in the spirit of the best NOVITEC ROSSO traditions are available in black.

A crucial role in the thrilling appearance of the Ferrari refined by NOVITEC ROSSO is of course played by the wheels that were custom-developed for this car. To further emphasize the wedge shape of the F12, NOVITEC ROSSO developed two tire/wheel combinations with staggered wheels, 21-inch wheels on the front axle and 22-inch rims in back.

In addition to the appearance, the performance specifications for the product engineers also demanded even more precise handling. The NOVITEC ROSSO NF4 high-tech forged wheels, which are available in any desired color, are among the lightest of their kind in the world. Their design features five delicate double spokes and thanks to their low weight they reduce unsprung mass, a crucial factor in the even more agile handling. The NOVITEC ROSSO NF4 9.5Jx21 wheels in front are fitted with Pirelli high-performance tires in size 255/30 ZR 21. Size 12Jx22 rear wheels with 335/25 ZR 22 tires ensure maximum traction.

Three-piece NOVITEC ROSSO NF3 alloys are available as an alternative for the F12berlinetta. They are mounted in size 9.5Jx21 on the front axle and in size 12Jx22 in the rear and feature the same size tires as the forged wheels. There rims also have an impressive design that features five double spokes and polished rim flanges. Like for all wheels NOVITEC ROSSO offers individual color schemes including outer flanges with a carbon-fiber finish.

The NOVITEC ROSSO sports springs lower the ride height of the Ferrari by up to 40 millimeters. The lower center of gravity further adds to handling agility. To make it possible to navigate past speed humps or parking garage ramps without problems, NOVITEC ROSSO offers a hydraulic lift system for the front axle. At the push of a button in the cockpit the front of cars can be raised, and returned to its original level by pressing the button a second time. The car also reverts to its normal ride height automatically upon reaching a speed of 80 km/h.

Another NOVITEC ROSSO domain is the creation of powerful performance kits for Ferrari sports cars. After the power therapy the 6.3-liter V12 of the F12berlinetta produces an extra 25 kW / 34 hp. The extra horses come courtesy of an upgrade to the engine management system with newly calibrated mapping for injection and ignition. In addition, a NOVITEC ROSSO high-performance exhaust system with metal catalysts, available with or without controlled butterfly valve, is installed.

The NOVITEC ROSSO engine tuning not only offers a higher maximum power output of 569 kW / 774 hp at 8,500 rpm and a peak torque increased to 716 Nm at 6,300 rpm. Increasing the redline speed to 8,900 rpm also results in even shorter gear steps for the seven-speed F1 dual clutch transmission. Furthermore, top speed increases to more than 345 km/h.

It goes without saying that the NOVITEC ROSSO sport exhaust systems are also available separately without the performance kit. The versions with controlled butterfly valve give drivers of the F12berlinetta the option of manually switching the exhaust note with the manettino button of the steering wheel between discrete and markedly sporty.

NOVITEC ROSSO also offers exclusive refinement of the interior. The product portfolio ranges from carbon-fiber shift paddles to a designer interior crafted from leather and Alcantara in any desired color and upholstery style.
