Alex Ojjeh never disappoints when it comes to his cars. We might be looking at a pre-production car, given the number of sensors strapped to the body, which are most likely there so engineers can monitor the sound coming out of the exhaust pipes. Ferrari

Superfast… all black on black on black with all the options.

The building in the background is gorgeous. Very reminiscent of the Guggenheim museum. But I’m positive that Frank Lloyd Wright didn’t do that building in Nashville.

The smart aero aimed to increase airflow and help it corner faster, as well as the removable carbon fiber portion on top of the passenger compartment, are examples of this.

The upgraded 6.5-liter engine, which was tweaked to give a peak output of 830 horsepower (619 kilowatts) and 510 pound-feet (692 Newton-meters) of torque, might be one of the last naturally aspirated V12 cars to come from the Prancing Horse.

It’s the most powerful combustion engine ever installed in a production Ferrari, but that’s about to change, as the automaker has already revealed that a more powerful V12 is in the works.
