Ferrari

This Italian brand needs little introduction. The company was founded for the production of road cars in 1947 after gaining a strong reputation for racing cars. Late founder Enzo Ferrari was involved in the company up until 1988 when the Ferrari F40 was launched. Now with an official import presence via Ferrari Australasia, the brand's current line-up comprises V8- and V12-powered sports cars and GTs in the form of the 458 range, California, F12 and FF.

Driving a Ferrari at Targa Great Barrier Reef

Driving a Ferrari is an event. Each and every time. Doesn’t matter if it's a trip down to Coles or a day out at the track. The simple idea of getting behind the wheel of a Prancing Horse is enough to elicit a great sense of joy from those that understand its virtue. As an owner, I still feel that sensation each time I jump behind the wheel of my Speciale...

Design Review: Ferrari Rossa (2000)

2019 Ferrari Portofino review: First drive

Here it is, Ferrari's impressive new California T replacement, the Portofino. If you want one, get in line. The Portofino is sold out for 2018, while 2019 doesn’t look much better for those lucky enough to be on the waitlist at all.

Ferrari 488 Spider review: Why bother with the coupe?

Alborz Fallah: When it comes down to it, if you happen to meet anyone that says the convertible 488 is a compromise, or that it’s not a real Ferrari, call them out for what they are – an idiot. Otherwise, if you want to daily a Ferrari, the Spider is the best way to go.

2018 Ferrari GTC4 Lusso review

See the full article here. For exactly six years, the biggest issue I have had with exotic cars has been my son losing his mind when I can’t take him for a drive. As a father of car-obsessed boys, the Ferrari GTC4 Lusso is the best thing that has ever come out of Maranello...

2015 Ferrari 458 Speciale review

I have had a few Ferraris over the years, starting with a second-hand Ferrari 360 Spider, then a new 360 Spider I specced to my own taste with the first carbon-fibre seats in Australia in a non-racing Ferrari. Then followed a new 599 GTB Fiorano, which neither I nor my wife liked...

1993 Ferrari 348 TS review

The Ferrari 348 by every measure was a better-performing car than the one it replaced, the Ferrari 328. Horsepower, acceleration and top speed were all vastly improved. Yet, journalists constantly regurgitate the same story about it being the car having flaws and Ferrari's (then) new CEO bagging its performance...

1979 Ferrari 308 Review

As a child I used to play with Matchbox cars. Probably my favourite would have been the Ferrari, which I now know was a 308 GTB. It was aggressive and confident; masculine yet feminine. It just stood out amongst all my other cars. So much so, in fact, that I've always identified myself as a Ferrari guy, as opposed to Lamborghini people, who grew up with Countach and Diablo posters adorning their bedroom walls...
