Ferrari FF Vs. Bentley Continental V8 Race On Ice: Video
We all said goodbye to our favorite auto show of all time Top Gear which was actually hosted by our three popular hosts Jeremy Clarkson, Richard Hammond and James may. However there are several clips on you tube from the auto show which actually brings joy everytime we watch them. I managed to tumble across one of such video which was on you tube and as you can notice its actually a race between the Bentley Continental V8 and the Ferrari FF.
As you also can see the race is actually taking place on ice which makes the situation far worse. Jeremy is seen sitting behind the wheels of the Bentley Continental V8 which is the heavier car amongst the duo obviously both the cars have activated their traction controls in order to get a grip on the slippery ice. Surprisingly the Bentley takes a lead in the beginning of the race but the Ferrari catches up soon and easily beats the heavier car here. But in the second part of the video we can see both the cars race each other on a circuit. Yes! TopGear folks have created a replica of a circuit in the middle of nowhere and things turns really interesting when both this cars race against each other on this circuit.
Obviously this is a TopGear clip which you don’t want to give a miss.. Watch and enjoy more of Jeremy Clarksons madness as he drives this four wheel drive Bentley on snow..

Ferrari GTC4Lusso wows Geneva Motor Show: Video
Ferrari unveiled the FF at the 2011 Geneva Motor Show, and after 5 years, they announced FF is no more despite being a successful car. Instead the Italian exotic car maker announced the arrival of Ferrari GTC4Lusso, which is the all new revamped FF.
The car gets sleek headlamps with LED units, dual taillights like the Ferrari FF which come protruding. Interior gets plenty of features. The most interesting feature is the passenger display on dashboard, from where passengers can change music selection, select the navigation according to their choice.
Like Ferrari’s first All Wheel Drive car FF the Ferrari GTC4Lusso will also get the AWD system. The car gets the same shooting brake style like the FF. The juice comes from a 6.3 litre V12 engine which pumps out 680 hp peak power and 696 Nm peak torque. The Ferrari GTC4Lusso can reach 0-100 kmph in just 3.4 seconds with a top speed of 335 kmph.
Ferrari launched the 488 GTB in India with prices starting from INR. 3.88 Crores (ex showroom). This car first made its global debut at the 2015 Geneva Motor show and will now take on the likes of Lamborghini Huracan and the Mercedes AMG GT in the Indian market.
What makes this Ferrari special is the fact that this is their third mid engine V8 car after the legendary 288 GTO and the F40. Powered by a 3.9 Litre twin- turbocharged unit capable of producing about 660 Hp of peak power at 8000 rpm and an equally impressive 760 Nm of torque at 3000 rpm, now all that power is actually transferred to the rear wheels via the dual clutch 7-speed automatic gearbox.
Talking about performance the 488 GTB can sprint from 0-100 km/h mark in just 3.0 seconds while it can attain a top speed of 330 km/h. The mid-engined car definitely can outshine its competitor in terms of handling remember this car gets the same brakes as that of the La-Ferrari while the tyres are also equal size as of the LA-Ferrari.
In terms of styling offcourse! This is not as beautiful as the 458 but this is actually the Italian manufacturer’s first production car to get an active rear diffuser. The 488 GTB does get a completely different front profile which comes with larger air intakes. There is even a new side air vents which helps in keeping the engine cool.
The Ferrari 488 GTB will definitely also get host of customizable options as well in India.
Gone are the days, when Indian car enthusiasts had no liberty of buying luxury cars or expensive sports cars in their own country, rather they had to import those cars from overseas at an expense of extra money. The taste of Indian buyers has changed drastically, alongside the capability to buy expensive cars. Now a day, more and more luxury car makers are bringing expensive machines on wheels in this country. Brands like Audi, BMW, Ferrari, Jaguar, Lamborghini, Land Rover, Maserati, Mercedes Benz, and Porsche are showing keen interest in expanding their Indian lineup, which is definitely a silver line for auto enthusiast of the country.
In recent times, we have seen the auto industry has flourished by the expensive models in the country. As we are about to bid goodbye to 2015, it’s worth mentioning that in this year too we have seen plenty of expensive cars launched in the country. Mercedes Benz has been at the forefront of the expensive car launches in 2015, while other auto makers like BMW, Ferrari, Lamborghini, and Maserati also brought their own exotic machines.
Before we move on to another year, let’s take a look back at the expensive car lineup, which has been launched in 2015.
Ferrari has always been known for their exotic supercars. In 2011 Geneva Motor Show, when they first unveiled Pininfarina designed two door Ferrari FF grand tourer, it stirred quite an amusement among Ferrari lovers, as it was the first all wheel drive from the Italian auto maker’s stable. As a direct successor of Ferrari 612 Scaglietti, FF adorned an unusual design language. Unlike the usual coupe styling, Ferrari designed this car in a sporty hatchback or estate like way, which is known as the shooting brake style. Being a 4x4 technology powered exotic car it came able to go rough terrains with ease, which made it a popular model immediately after the launch. Not only that, Ferrari FF is also known as one of the few very practical cars from the Italian auto maker’s Maranello plant.
The rear seats of this hatchback/estate styled car are foldable, with which the boot space can be increased upto 800 litres, which is incredible along with the supercar like performance of this car. The entire package made this car a rare among all the exotics from Ferrari. Unveiled in 2011, Ferrari FF made its debut in 2012. Since then this car has gone through a few facelifts. Ferrari has been preparing for the next facelift for FF, and the updated model will hit the showrooms in 2016. In India, Ferrari sells FF on a request basis, and we hope we will get to see the FF in this country too.
In the meantime, TopSpeed.com has posted a few spyshots and rendered images based on those spyshots of the 2016 Ferrari FF. The car looks even more gorgeous. Before the next generation of updated FF hits the showroom floors, let’s take a detailed look at the exotic machine.

If we talk about supercars, Ferrari needs no introduction but a whole large chapter to depict the glory of the Italian auto maker since 1947. No wonder, another Italian giant Lamborghini has always given them toughest competition. When Lamborghini launched Aventador in 2012, Ferrari saw steep competition, and to grab their spot in the supercar market tighter they took up a project to make a car which would come with sheer power and performance like the Aventador and in a wrapping of Ferrari’s signature luxurious comfort. Thus came the Ferrari F12berlinetta, a beautifully gorgeous supercar with extreme power. The Italian company depicts this car as the most powerful Ferrari in the V12 segment.
In India Ferrari offers a few of their exotic models, and F12berlinetta is one of them. Debuted at the 2012 Geneva Motor show this car replaced the 599 series grand tourers. The front mid engine, rear wheel drive grand tourer surely saved Ferrari’s face against Lamborghini. The F12berlinetta has won quite a few awards too. The naturally aspirated 6.3 litre Ferrari V12 engine under the hood of F12berlinetta has won the “International Engine of the Year Awards 2013” in the best performance category and best engine above 4.0 litres. This car was also named as the "The Supercar of the Year 2012" by Top Gear. F12berlinetta is one such car, which many of us crave to drive.
So, how is the Ferrari F12berlinetta actually? Take a look here.

The concept of open air motoring in India may sound like an absolutely stupid idea especially keeping our congested traffic situation and our Indian climate in mind but that does not actually stop the manufacturer from introducing convertible models here in India. The latest car to enter the Indian market scene from Ferrari is called the 488 Spider, which happens to be the most powerful mid-rear mounted V8 car to feature a retractable hard top.
Now compared to the classic fabric soft-top the RTH (Retractable Hard Top) ensures better cockpit comfort, safety as well as lower weight. The 488 Spider just like every other Ferrari sportscars has that sweet Ferrari sound which actually comes out from that turbo charged naturally aspirated V8 unit. This turbo V8 unit has an constant power level upgrade across the rev range and thus eliminating turbo lag completely. The other features of the 488 Spider are its aluminum spaceframe chassis which not only provide rigidity but also makes the car even more aerodynamic.
The 488 Spider uses the same engine which also powers the 488 GTB, no other cars could perhaps match the brilliant amalgam of power and performance, although being an open top model this sporstcar can actually sprint from 0-100 km/h mark in just 3 seconds flat while the 200 km/h sprint is achievable in just 8.7 seconds.
Now that Lamborghini is here with their Huracan spider this two cars definitely are fierce rivals and the battle to claim the top spot has only begun.
