Ferrari Gets A Tattoo

Tattooed Ferrari

What you see here is a Ferrari F430 that has been covered in cowhide and then tattooed by French artist Phillipe Pasqua.

It sounds ridiculous, but the end result is rather impressive, so I’m sure this isn’t the last time we see a leather covered supercar prowling the streets.

…The Novitech TuLesto is a self-made supercar?

Novitech TuLesto

Novitec is known for making bad beasts out of Italian stallions, but now they’ve set their sights a little higher, and intend on releasing a semi-custom car (or eleven) of their very own to celebrate their 20th anniversary.

Called the TuLesto, it’s based loosely on the Ferrari F430, though just about everything on the car has been poked and prodded into a new, and some would argue sexier shape.

Two superchargers give the carbon fiber creation a healthy 777 horsepower out of the 4.4-liter V8, and 60 happens 3.4 seconds after pressing the go pedal on the way to a top speed of more than 217 mph.

Happy birthday indeed!

Want to take a peak inside the new Ferrari Scuderia Spider 16M; the race ready version of its F430 drop-top?

Then check out FerrariWorld.com, where they’ve created a fantastic in-car experience where you can pan around the inside of the car and examine all the little details, including the carbon fiber everything, the iPod Touch in the center console, the yellow accents that highlight all the important bits and pieces, and even the Racing Magnettino that tunes the magnetic suspension for optimum performance on the track and the street.

It just doesn’t get much better than that.

…The Zenvo ST1 is one fast ride?

Zenvo ST1

It may look like the combination of a VW GTI grill, Maserati Corse hood, Lamborghini Murcielago side scoops, Lexus IS-F gill slits, Ferrari F599 quarter windows and F430 side mirrors, Nissan 370Z roof and GT-R taillights, but when you’ve got 1,104 horses of turbocharged AND supercharged power under the hood, no one’s really going to see anything but a blurry view of the rear bumper.

Called The Zenvo ST1, this Danish supercar has been in the works since 2004, but is just now going through its final stages of testing and is expected to see the light of day (all 15 of them) some time in early 2009.

Zenvo ST1 Detail

Specs include the twin-charged 7.0-liter V8, six-speed manual gearbox, rear-wheel-drive, and plenty of carbon fiber to keep the weight down, and stats come in at 3.2 to 62 mph, 120 mph in under nine seconds, and a top speed of 233 mph.

No pricing information is currently available, but if you have to ask…


…Bullit should have been Italian?


It’s supposed to be a Bullit remake (the site’s in French) but regardless of what it’s supposed to be, a black Ferrari F430 chasing an orange Lamborghini Gallardo Superleggera through the streets of Paris is definitely something to be seen and heard:
