Auto enthusiasts are probably familiar with the Pininfarina-styled Ferrari 308 GTB, as it was introduced at the Paris Motor Show in 1975 alongside the Bertone-shaped 2+2 Dino 308 GT4 and a direct replacement for the 2-seater Dino 246. This classic supercar is powered by an F106 AB V8 engine generating 240 hp at 6,600 rpm, while the European-spec model made 255 hp due to emmission control devices on the former. Designer Carlos Colorsponge combined the best of the 308 GTS with 1980s NASCAR vehicles to create “The Brawler”.
The LEGO Technic (42125) Ferrari 488 GTE “AF CORSE #51″ is the latest set in their supercar lineup, and it has lots of authentic features and stunning design elements found on the endurance racer. Not just a static model, it boasts front / rear suspension, an aerodynamic body kit, a V8 engine that sports moving pistons, a steering wheel adorned with the Prancing Horse badge, original race number, sponsor stickers and of course, the authentic tricolor paint job.
Straight from the factory, Ferrari’s F8 Tributo is powered by a 488 Pista-sourced 3.9L twin-turbocharged V8 engine producing 710 hp 568 lb-ft of torque, mated to a 7-speed dual clutch, thus making it the automaker’s powerful conventional V8 model produced to date. German tuner Novitec recently got their hands on this supercar and added a set of sleek Vossen wheels (21-inches front / 22-inches rear), along with lowering springs.

Automotive designer Sabino Leerentveld wanted to combine an F1 vehicle with a LeMans racer to make a street-legal hypercar, and the F399 is what he came up with. The vehicle has been painted in the iconic Ferrari Red and boasts a closed cockpit, which is inspired by future race cars where extra safety precautions will have to be taken to protect drivers.
The ultra limited Ferrari Monza SP1 was designed as a sleek single-seat road car that offers a truly unique experience behind the wheel. Featuring a unique design, the best weight-to-power ratio of any barchetta, thanks to the extensive use of carbon-fiber in construction, and bespoke details, such as head-and tail-lights, wheels and interior. It also comes equipped with the most powerful engine Maranello has ever built, a 6.5L V12 that can help the vehicle accelerate from 0-62 mph in a mere 2.9 seconds.
