Eric Clapton's custom $4.7 million Ferrari- Cool or Ugly?

Do not like.

Eric Clapton is one of the most famous musicians around. He's also incredibly rich and likes Ferrari's. That makes it pretty cool in my book. However, Clapton had Ferrari make him a custom one-of-a-kind Ferrari based on a 458 Italia.

My problem is that the car is incredibly ugly. It looks like Clapton was a fan of Magnum PI because this looks like a modernized version of magnums Ferrari. It integrates also remind me more the little of a Tesla Roadster.

We can’t help but get a little excited whenever Ken Block announces anything related to his Gymkhana videos — especially if it’s one involving a car as unhinged and insane as this. It’s called the Hoonicorn RTR, and it’s on display at this week’s SEMA show in Las Vegas, Nevada. Starting out as a 1965 Ford Mustang Fastback, the Hoonicorn obviously boasts the modifications we know and love from anything meant to shred tires with Ken Bl ...

This B.C. man brings million-dollar classic cars back to life

Nov 4 2014 3:02pm CST | Source: Driving Canada

Hidden away in a rural part of Vancouver Island, one of the world’s best automotive restorers brings million-dollar beauties back to life. VICTORIA, B.C. — “…and cheap too, at $1.3-million.” The relative insanity of this half-overheard statement doesn’t actually penetrate my brain. I am stunned, floored, gob-smacked by what I am seeing. Two, no, three Ferrari Daytonas. A pair of D-Type Jaguars, one wearing Ecurie Ecosse racing livery. Se ...

Why “C’était Un Rendezvous” Just May Be the Best Car Flick Movie Ever Made

Nov 4 2014 12:48pm CST | Source: Car and Driver

There are many fantastic action movies that feature amazing examples of automotive derring do—usually involving car chases. From Cannonball Run to the Bourne Identity to Bullitt or any of the Bond movies, Hollywood has put many stars in cars and made many cars into stars themselves. But in our opinion, the best driving film of all time wasn’t shot anywhere near Hollywood, involves no actual chase (unless “chasing tail” counts), and isn’t even nine minutes long. And through it ...

Report: Why newly independent Ferrari may be forced into fuel-efficient cars

Nov 4 2014 10:01am CST | Source: Autoblog

Filed under: Performance, Government/Legal, Ferrari The repercussions from Ferrari's pending transition into an independent automaker won't be understood for some time, but one of the biggest consequences could be that the iconic Italian marque will be forced into building more fuel-efficient vehicles. As Wired points out, while Ferrari built fewer than 7,000 cars in 2013, its status as a public company could trigger pressure from shareholders to build more six- ...
