The latest episode of EVO features a drive through the Swiss Alps in a Rosso Corsa Ferrari F40 being driven by Henry Catchpole. This video maintains a focus on featuring the aspects of the Prancing Horse and how the F40 handles the twisting turns of the Alps versus the more traditional supercar video that uses helicopter views of sweeping landscapes. The turn from the traditional approach to cinematography creates a fresh perspective and definitely maintains a focus on the car. Catchpole integrates seamless commentary about the quirks of the Ferrari F40 along with funny stories that he has experienced with the supercar.
April 30th marks the expiration of the first of two embargoes on the Ferrari LaFerrari. These embargoes are agreements between news agencies and manufactures to hold information and images of vehicles until a predetermined date. While embargoes are not unusual, they are frustrating for all of us that can’t wait for more information to be released on the newest car to come out of Maranello. With the first of two embargoes officially over, expect a lot of coverage of the hot new hybrid from Ferrari, the LaFerrari.
The first video to be released is from Evo and it is almost 10 minutes long. Dickie Meaden takes the 900-plus-horsepower hybrid for a run around the Fiorano test track and out onto Italian roads.
British racing magazine EVO recently put the Ferrari 458 speciale up against the Ferrari 458 Italia and the ruff-and-tumble Ferrari F430 Scuderia. All three cars were driven by Jethro Bovingdon, on a racetrack somewhere in the U.K.
When comparing horsepower, the 458 Speciale definitely has the advantage with 605 horsepower compared to the 570 horsepower of the 458 Italia and 503 horsepower of the Scuderia. The difference in horsepower would strongly suggest that the 458 Speciale would have the advantage on the racetrack. However, there is so much more to racing than just horsepower. Check out the video and see which one of these supercars performed best on the track.
