With the sleek looks, powerful engine, and incredible handling of its vehicles, Ferrari definitely reigns as the number one sports car manufacturer in the world today. All thanks to the imagination and sheer genius of the brand's founding father, Enzo Ferrari, the brand has survived the ever changing trends in the automobile world. Even after Enzo's death in 1988, the brand has continued to evolve its line of vehicles by adapting the latest technologies in its automobiles. Today, taking a look at Ferrari's current line will make any car enthusiast feel like a child in a candy store. All their vehicles remain stylish, classy, and attractive while they remain powerful and easy to handle as well.
Powerful V8 engines
Aside from having sleek and stylish looks, Ferraris are also known for their powerful engines. When Enzo Ferrari was still alive, his favorite engines were V12s. Today, new Ferraris are equipped with a 90 degree V8 engine that has a displacement of 4499 cc. As anyone can tell, this new design is extremely powerful, and it's even expected to reach a maximum of 9,000 rpm. The new engine also boasts a torque of 540 Nm at 6,000 rpm, which is very generous to say the least. This powerful innovation was adapted from Ferrari's Formula One racing technology. Even though this engine is extremely powerful, it surprisingly does not consume that much fuel as it was made to meet the international emission restrictions. This engine is also designed to minimize the friction between the various engine components. This was done by incorporating thinner compression rings and applying graphite coating to the pistons.
The designs of Ferrari cars contribute a lot to their aerodynamics, which makes them glide on the roads with utmost ease. By incorporating sleek looks and aerodynamic principles, Ferrari boasts of speedy vehicles that are unlike any other in the world. The engineers and designers of Ferrari cars are guided by the principle of producing vehicles geared towards performance-oriented efficiency. Basically, air becomes a friend of the Ferrari car as it runs because the car is designed to go with and not fight it.
Having all these wonderful features on the newest car models, Ferrari will continue to dominate the supercar and sports car market for many years to come.
