There are also active aerodynamic elements such as the rear spoiler, front “wings” and air intakes. Exhaust gas is even used to increase downforce.

The boys from IAAD claim their inspiration came from the Ferrari P3 and P4/5. Like many of the design studies we’ve featured on the site, it’s an attractive from some angles but fussy from others.Ferrari EGO Concept 1 150x150 Ferrari EGO Concept Study

FERRARI FF 1 300x200 Ferrari Offers Winter Driving Course in Aspen for the Low Price of $11,399

From January 2012, Ferrari owners and their guests (strictly – no interlopers allowed) will get the chance to experience a two-day driving course in Aspen, Colorado. Eight specially prepared examples of the new Ferrari FF will be waiting to show both students and their guests the dynamic abilities of Maranello’s newest V12 GT on even the most treacherous conditions.

Just make sure you already own a Ferrari and have US$11,399 to spend. Ferrari will accommodate participants at the Nell Resort in Aspen where they will enjoy, apart from the two day driving program, champagne receptions and two group lunches at the track. And oh, there’s also a photo package and event memorabilia.

Guests get to pay much less, only US$950, but they won’t be driving the FF and will instead be taken for a ride by a professional driver.

Ferrari Rn 90047 300x200 Ferrari Customers Deal with Waiting Lists by Temporarily Buying First Available ModelIn Australia and indeed the world, Ferrari waiting lists are notoriously long. At one point the average wait time for a Ferrari 575M Maranello was as much as three years, as demand rapidly stripped out the brand’s relatively small production capacity. Whatever is a cashed up Ferrarista to do?

Well, you could just buy whatever’s available and drive that until your hot pink Ferrari 458 with the diamante-encrusted wheel arches and baby seal leather interior arrives. I mean, who cares about depreciation when you can lay down half a million on a factory fresh Ferrari? You’d be surprised how many Ferrari customers in Australia are doing this exact thing.

Edward Rowe, spokesman for Ferrari’s official Australia distributor, told the Brisbane Times:

“We had our first trade-in swaps on 458s barely four months after the car was bought. We actually have pre-owned 458s now because one set of customers literally ordered two cars — one with a very straightforward specification that would come straight down the production line as early as possible, and at the same time they ordered one with all the special spec they wanted. When that car turned up, they traded in the first one.”

Mr. Rowe is not concerned, however, as there are some very loyal followers of the Ferrari brand in the land down under:

“We have one owner who bought his first Ferrari in 1973, and I think he has bought about 15 since then and is yet to sell one. The very first Ferrari ever sold in Australia is still on the road in Melbourne, a (1950s-era) 212.”

small Sebastian Vettel Takes Dominant Australian Grand Prix Win Sebastian Vettel won the inagural race of the 2011 F1 season after a dominating performance in Melbourne. The German driver made full use of his pole-position and lead the race from start to finish, taking his 11th Formula 1 win. Vettel adopted a two-stop pit strategy and finished with a 22.2-second advantage over second ranked Lewis Hamilton (McLaren), who had to race with a detached floor after running wide on lap 33.

Third place went to Russian Vitaly Petrov, the big surprise of the Australian GP, who got off to an excellent start. The Renault driver went from sixth to fourth immediately after the green light, taking advantage of Button and Alonso both running wide in the first corner. Petrov gained another position after the first round of pitstops and kept it until the end of the race, scoring his first ever Formula 1 podium finish.

Fourth-placed Fernando Alonso had a tougher time on the track, with the Spaniard having to deal with a three-stop strategy and a poor start that sent him from fifth to ninth before the first corner of the race. The Ferrari driver then quickly started recovering lost positions, managing to finish fourth. Mark Webber and Jenson Button finished the race fifth and sixth respectively, while Ferrari’s Massa had to settle for ninth, behind the Ferrari-powered Saubers of Sergio Perez and Kamui Kobayashi.

However, the two Sauber drivers were disqualified after the race for rear-wing infringements, so Massa got seventh place eventually.

Sebastian Vettel s 2011 Formula One Season is OnRed Bull and McLaren dominated the first qualifying session of the year, with the two teams getting the top four pole positions for Sunday’s Melbourne race. 2010 title winner Sebastian Vettel started the new F1 season in style, dominating comfortably all three qualifying stages and sealing pole-position with a 1m23.529s lap, 0.78 seconds quicker than the second fastest driver, McLaren’s Lewis Hamilton.

“We have worked hard to get the RB7 where it is and that’s down to the factory. It was a pleasure today but at the moment we have zero points like everyone else. The size of the margin is a surprise. We had a good feeling coming here but we didn’t know for sure where we would be,” said Vettel.

Ferrari’s Fernando Alonso finished, but the Spaniard was almost 1.5 seconds off the leader’s pace, while Felipe Massa only posted the eighth best time, a sign that the Prancing Horse doesn’t yet have the speed to challenge the Red Bulls. The biggest surprise of the day however was Vitaly Petrov qualifying its Renault in sixth place, with his teammate Nick Heidfeld taking 18th place. Under these circumstances, one can’t help but wonder where would the injured Kubica have put the Renault on the starting grid.

Mercedes GP’s best-placed driver was Nico Rosberg, in seventh place, while Michael Schumacher only managed 11th place, missing the final round. Judging by the pace shown in qualifying, Mercedes doesn’t seem to have improved much over the last season.
