1962 Ferrari 196 SP by Fantuzzi: still for sale

The Ferrari 196/246 SP was produced from 1961 through 1963 with less than ten examples being created. The design was very untraditional for Enzo Ferrari and against his strongest belief that the horse should come before the cart, meaning the engine should be placed in the front.

Another departure from the traditional Ferrari was the use of a Vittorio Jano designed V-6 engine. The six-cylinder engines were more compact, lightweight, and more fuel-efficient, when compared to the traditional Colombo, designed 12-cylinder engines.

With the engine mounted longitudinally mid-ship, optimal weight distribution and handling were achieved. The chassis was the traditional tubular frame supported by wishbone suspension. A five-speed manual gearbox provided power to the rear wheels. The body design was simple, yet elegant and effective.

This combination was good enough to capture overall victories at Targa Florio and the Nurburgring 1000 km. At Le Mans in 1963, Ferrari captured the first mid-engined victory with a 250 P, a close sibling of the 246 SP.

The first 246 SP chassis constructed was #0790. In 1961, it successfully campaigned at Targa Florio. A year later it scored victories at the Nurburgring 1000 km. It was later converted into a 196 SP. In modern times, it has been raced at the Cavallino Classic.
From 1961 through 1963, engine modifications were made and inserted into existing and new chassis. Because of this, specifications vary. Four chassis were constructed between 1962 and 1963.

Even though a limited number were produced, their accomplishments are legendary and their design was revolutionary. The knowledge achieved through the design and development was used in future Ferrari projects and their continued domination at races such as LeMans. *** [EKA | FROM VARIOUS SOURCES | CONCEPTCARZ | BUSINESS INSIDER | MOTOR1 | THE DRIVE | CAVALINO]

The first sportscar made by Ferrari

Ferrari is an Italian high-performance car and racing car manufacturer based in Maranello, Italy. The company was founded by Enzo Ferrari in 1929, as "Scuderia Ferrari", a company that sponsors racers and makes racing cars and since 1947 moving to product the high-performance cars as well as racing car known as Ferrari S.p.A., and now controlled by the Fiat group. So in 2019, the Italian car manufacturers, Ferrari is known to have been 72 years old.
The first Ferrari sportscar named Ferrari 125 built-in 1947. (Picture from: http://bit.ly/2Xb9wnc)
And the first car to officially use the Ferrari name is the Ferrari 125 S. The figure of this car was first introduced to the public on March 12, 1947, on the Maranello city-streets. And until today, Maranello still becomes the headquarters of the automotive brand founded by Enzo Ferrari. Avec Les marques?

When the Ferrari 125 S lit on for the first time, it still does not have a body, and only a chassis and engine. The Ferrari 125 S itself was a design result of Gioacchino Colombo with Giuseppe Busso and assisted by Luigi Bazzi.
The Ferrari 125 S first debuted on March 12, 1947, in Maranello. (Picture from: http://bit.ly/2Xb9wnc)
The Ferrari's racing passion seems to be fulfilled by the presence of the Ferrari 125 S figure, in after 2 months since it was first lit, the car immediately participated in the race event at the Piacenza circuit, Italy. Indeed, its debut on that day can be said not smoothly.
Ferrari 125 S displayed alongside one of the most sophisticated prancing horse logoed cars, LaFerrari Aperta. (Picture from: http://bit.ly/2Xb9wnc)
Because there were problems in the fuel pump so that it was very disturbing the performance of the car which was leading in the race at that time. Only 9 days later, the Ferrari 125 S could win its first race at the Rome Grand Prix event.
But even so, still the Ferrari 125 S is the first car made by Ferrari, and culminating in the company's 70th anniversary in 2017, this classic car is again displayed alongside one of the most sophisticated prancing horse logoed cars, LaFerrari Aperta.

Have You ever seen this Enzo-based supercar?

Supercar manufacturers ranging from large to newly emerging many scattered throughout the world to meet the demand of exotic car enthusiasts, namely those billionaires who are known to have a lot of money.
2011 Lavazza GTX-R by Simbol Design with a slick combined design of Ferrari Enzo and Pagani Zonda. (Picture from: http://bit.ly/2qduZQ8)
Usually, well-known manufacturers bring up one model in a limited number, thereby contributing to limit ownership of that model. So many enthusiasts of exotic cars are forced to be disappointed because they cannot have it.

This gave rise to a niche in the market which was then used by other manufacturers to use it. For example, when Ferrari has launched the Ferrari Enzo supercar masterpiece in 2002 to 2004 and produced in limited quantities (only 400 units worldwide). So you can imagine how rare the supercar was.
2011 Lavazza GTX-R by Simbol Design can accelerate from 0 to 100 kph in just 4.3 seconds. (Picture from: http://bit.ly/2qduZQ8)
Because the Ferrari Enzo does have its own charm, in addition to being made in very limited quantities, the car is also specifically designed to honor the Enzo Ferrari (the company founder). In addition, the pride of the Ferrari car has a super high price, and the Enzo is no longer produced. So that many Ferrari fans become disappointed because they can not have it.
2011 Lavazza GTX-R by Simbol Design uses a V12, 5400cc BMW-owned engine, which able to spew power up to 489 horsepower. (Picture from: http://bit.ly/2qduZQ8)
But don't worry, because from a deep Alpine valley on the Swiss-Italian border comes the mad-as-a-hatter Simbol Design Lavazza GTX-R supercar. If it’s as sinister as its dark-sounding home town of Crevoladossola, it should be quite a ride. This high-powered machine has been in drawn-out development and prototype testing since 2004.
2011 Lavazza GTX-R by Simbol Design has been in drawn-out development and prototype testing since 2004. (Picture from: http://bit.ly/2qduZQ8)
Simbol Design, formerly Automobili Lavazza — not to be confused with Italy’s biggest coffee company — was founded in 1975 by Enrico Lavazza. For years he produced racing prototypes, kit cars, and replicas. The company was rebranded in 2005 when Enrico’s son Fabio took the reins.

This supercar has a shape that is almost similar to the Ferrari Enzo, especially on the front, then when looking at the top there's a roof scoop that immediately reminds us of the figure of Pagani Zonda. So it can be said that the car has a slick combined design of Ferrari Enzo and Pagani Zonda.
2011 Lavazza GTX-R by Simbol Design with the price estimated at around £270,000 (or approx Rp.5 billion). (Picture from: http://bit.ly/2qduZQ8)
But the difference, the Lavazza GTX-R uses a V12 BMW-owned engine, which has a capacity of 5,400 cc which able to spew power up to 489 horsepower and combined with 6-speed electro-pneumatic transmission system. Although it is called the Enzo wannabe, the GTX-R's performance is not embarrassing, because the car can accelerate from 0 to 100 kph in just 4.3 seconds.

The car body is made of carbon-Kevlar built atop a tubular steel frame resulting in a total mass of just 1,080 kg. With a body like that, it's no wonder that this vehicle has been turning heads. The car also comes in two types, convertible coupes, and roadsters.
Although not specified in detail, but in that time the automaker assured that the car has a price that is much cheaper than the original Enzo. As quoted from MoneyWeek in 2010, the car price estimated at around £270,000 (or approx Rp.5 billion). Until now, We never knew how many the GTX-R cars ever built? Or do you wanna see another supercar creation made of the Ferrari Enzo named Gemballa MIG-U1?

As if it suddenly became a mystery, since we can't access the company official sites @ https://www.simboldesign.com/ No info whether the manufacturer is still active or not?  *** [EKA | FROM VARIOUS SOURCES | CHECK HOOK BOXING | MONEYWEEK | CARBUZZ | THE TIMES | AUTOBLOG]

An exclusive Enzo-based supercar of Gemballa

When the prancing horse logoed premium car manufacturer launched the Ferrari Enzo ranging from 2002 to 2004 in a limited number of only 400 units worldwide. So you can imagine how rare the supercar was. Made many exotic car enthusiasts are forced to be disappointed because they cannot have it. Have You ever seen those supercars? What are the shortcomings of those supercars?
2010 Gemballa MIG-U1, an exclusive Ferrari Enzo-based supercar. (Picture from: http://bit.ly/2pSuWJB)
Yes, this supercar has a cool shape coupled with excellency performance, so for ordinary people like us seem these supercars have no shortcomings. But not for Mustafa and Ilyas Galadari, two businessmen who run several supercar businesses in Dubai when contacting the Gemballa, a German automotive tuner company to built fresh new supercars based on the Ferrari Enzo back in 2009. 
Side view of Gemballa MIG-U1 looks similar to the Maserati MC-12. (Picture from: http://bit.ly/2pSuWJB)
That's why the supercar's name is Gemballa MIG-U1 due to the 'MIG' abbreviation was taken from the names of two brothers Dubai businessmen mentioned above who had commissioned the making of this supercar. While 'U1' is an abbreviation to commemorate the founder of those German tuner company, Uwe Gemballa.
Interior view of Gemballa MIG-U1. (Picture from: http://bit.ly/36HrXEj)
It seems, at the time they wanted a very exclusive supercar figure that only a few people could have it. As quoted by Motor1, these supercars have made in limited numbers, only 25 units worldwide. And the company promises that no two of the 25 planned MIG-U1 production models will be exactly the same.
The V12 engine view of Gemballa MIG-U1. (Picture from: http://bit.ly/36HrXEj)
Is it a one-off, or a limited edition? Only time will tell if the Gemballa MIG-U1 will be sold on the open market. But so far that we could be seen and knew about this supercar, there's only one was diligently seen in the world's automotive expos or events, namely the figure of a white-colored MIG-U1 that's usually used a Dubai' number plate.
Rearview of Gemballa MIG-U1 with its doors open. (Picture from: http://bit.ly/2pSuWJB)
It is said also that the car is powered by a 6-liter V12 engine capable of producing power up to 700 horsepower. It has also been engineered to perform at extreme speeds with excellent and high performance. With higher aerodynamics, it provides efficiency and flexibility to adapt to changes in external elements when the car reaches various speeds.

The entire body has been completely reworked from front to rear, improving aerodynamics and giving the Enzo a certain race car/spaceship-like appearance. Starting from the front bumper, side skirts, rear bumper, new unique rear wing, to the design of a completely new muffler is not just a new tailpipe. At a glance from the side, this supercar looks similar to the Maserati MC-12. And the rear features a huge wing to increase downforce, and a large roof scoop feeds air to the engine.
And for the interior, Gemballa gives a touch of red and black theme, the seats and trim are covered in quilted red leather and it resembles a luxury car more than a 200+ mph supercar. And on its black bucket seat, there was a red embroidered Uwe Gemballa's signature. But some parts still reflect the feel of sportiness with the steering wheel, dashboard and shift knob made of carbon fiber.

The price is only available upon request, but after taking a look around, we found Ferrari Enzos at a price range of US $1.1-1.8 million. Of course, those weren’t tuned by Gemballa. Wanna see another Enzo-based supercar called Lavazza GTX-R or the newest Gemballa-owned supercar. *** [EKA | FROM VARIOUS SOURCES | WIKIPEDIA | MOTOR1 | TOPSPEED | AUTOMOBLOG]

Japanese 'sportscar' made from recycled materials

Innovation in the automotive world continues to move towards the concept of environmentally friendly. Like the concept car on display at the 2019 Tokyo Motor Show, made from plants and agricultural waste. And then talking about environmentally friendly cars isn't just a matter of switching fossil fuels to electricity.
A Japanese 'sportscar' named Nano Cellulose Vehicle (NCV) made from recycled materials on display at the 2019 Tokyo Motor Show. (Picture from: http://bit.ly/33awUn5)
The car in question is the Nano Cellulose Vehicle (NCV) which is a new project from Japan. This concept car is environmentally friendly because the components of this car use materials from plants and recycling agricultural waste.
The Nano Cellulose Vehicle (NCV) project made by a consortium of 22 universities in Japan, research institutes, and several large companies and runs by the Japanese Ministry of Environment since 2016. (Picture from: http://bit.ly/33awUn5)
The NCV project does not work alone but through a consortium of 22 universities in Japan, research institutes, and several large companies. And this project has been run by the Japanese Ministry of Environment since 2016

As quoted from Carscoops, which states that the NCV car uses Celloluse Nanofiber derived from recycled plant material and agricultural waste. For information, and on the NCV concept car, the material is used to build bodies including doors, roofs to hood and trunk. Not only the body, CNF is also used in the framework of this car.
In the interior of the Nano Celullose Vehicle (NCV) is dominated by wood materials, from the dashboard to the steering wheel. (Picture from: http://bit.ly/33awUn5)
It was also mentioned the use of these materials was 50 percent lighter than the material currently used. And according to one member of the consortium, the person in charge of exterior design from Toyota Customizing & Development, Yuzo Niimi, said that in general this car has a sporty design with sharp lines indentation.
To support the design, this concept car also uses a butterfly wing door model, multi-spoke wheels and taillights design that is reminiscent of the American car model Chrysler ME Four-Twelve. Looking into the cabin, the NCV is clad in an all-wood interior, with the steering wheel model of two bars that already have a gear shifter.  
Besides being lighter, this car made from plants and agricultural waste also produces relatively small emissions. Not much is revealed about how under the hood, but it is mentioned for energy sources that are used using hydrogen fuel cells and can only run a maximum of 20 kilometers per hour (12 mph).

Yes, all of this good effort returns to ourselves. Is there a desire to implement it in the automotive industry which may now be in the comfort zone with the use of existing materials such as metal, plastic, or glass fiber and so on. Let's wait and see. *** [EKA | FROM VARIOUS SOURCES | CARSCOOPS | MASHABLE]

Mitsubishi presented the first turbine-engined electric vehicle

When present as one of the 2019 Tokyo Motor Show participants, Mitsubishi used the opportunity by making the first debut of a unique small-sized SUV concept car owned and given the name of Mitsubishi MI-Tech Concept.

Why is it called unique? Due to the MI-Tech concept car is touted as the first electric car to use a turbine engine. In fact, this car is arguably the first and only turbine-engined car ever implemented in the real world. Really?

Mitsubishi presents the MI-Tech concept as a new breakthrough from the PHEV (Plug-in Hybrid Electric Vehicle) cars. If all this time the PHEV used a combination of petrol engines and electric motors, and now in the MI-Tech concept has been replaced by turbine engines and electric motors.

Where this turbine engine has functions the same as a petrol engine in the PHEV as we know in the first place, namely as an electric energy generator to supply the battery's needs.
Mitsubishi MI-Tech Concept equipped with a turbine engine and 4 electric motors. (Picture from: http://bit.ly/2Jk6uXS)
The MI-Tech concept car has 4 electric motors to drive it and spin independently. This is intended not only to prevent the tires slip symptoms on the off-road roads, but it's also allowed to control the four electric motors separately. So that makes the MI-Tech concept can maneuver to the side like a panzer or tank.
Mitsubishi still has no plans for the mass production of MI-Tech. (Picture from: http://bit.ly/2Jk6uXS)
Furthermore, Hiroshi Nagaoka, Executive Officer, Senior Vice President (Engineering) of Mitsubishi Motors revealed, that the car's turbine engine can be set to consume various types of fuel, ranging from diesel fuel, kerosene up to alcohol. This fuel consumption flexibility allows the MI-Tech concept can be suited in many places that have different fuel qualities.
Even though it still consumes fossil fuels, but the car emissions are claimed to be lower than conventional combustion engines with NOx (nitrogen oxide) levels practically non-existent. Mitsubishi chose this turbine engine because of its compact dimensions and lighter weight compared to conventional petrol engines.

But this turbine engine can't be likened with an aircraft turbine engine because it has a smaller size and capability. Until now Mitsubishi still has not planned mass production of MI-Tech, but the company said it was still trying to develop it in that direction. *** [EKA | FROM VARIOUS SOURCES | ]

The car was unveiled on stage by Toyota boss Akio Toyoda, but no details - including technical or performance - were given about it beyond its name. As such, it is believed to be a concept in the truest sense, pointing merely to the fact that electric vehicles can be fun.

"All those years ago the car came along and replaced the horse," said Toyoda, "but today there are still people who own and racehorses, and who have the most amazing, emotional relationships with their horses. For them, the horse remains irreplaceable.

"I believe it is the same for the car, even in an age of autonomy. People will continue to be at the center of our technical advances even as e-mobility is rolled out."
Due to the concept that appears to be a static prototype, the visitor able to simulate driving it around a famous race circuit of their choosing with the aid of virtual reality glasses. (Picture from: http://bit.ly/2W9dlIY)
Although the concept appears to be a static prototype, visitors to the show are able to simulate driving it around a famous race circuit of their choosing with the aid of virtual reality glasses. Alongside the e-Racer concept, Toyota is also showcasing a 'virtual fitting function' that can take users' exact measurements to tailor a bespoke race suit.
The e-Racer is joined on Toyota's show stand by the second-generation of the Mirai hydrogen fuel cell saloon, the i-Road electric scooter, a new two-seat EV designed for urban driving and the LQ Concept*** [EKA | FROM VARIOUS SOURCES | AUTOCAR | ROADSHOW]

An eccentric-shaped prototype car from Toyota

The world's sports car enthusiasts were recently surprised by the presence of a new Toyota car design. Although the car has a slightly unique shape, so there are those who consider it as a substitute for the legendary Toyota MR2.
An eccentric-shaped prototype car called Toyota La Coupe on displat at a ferry terminal in Nishima, Japan. (Picture from: http://bit.ly/35xEkSZ)
Apparently it's not just design. This new Toyota model which is called unattractive actually has a prototype version. The photo was shared by members of the SupraMKV forum, via Carscoops recently.

The car model was given the name Toyota La Coupe and was displayed at a ferry terminal in Naoshima, Japan, some time ago. But the car looks older than the picture spread via Twitter. Previously the photos distributed on Twitter showed that the car was at the Ginza Sony Park in October last year.
Previously the Toyota La Coupe picture was shared by members of the SupraMKV forum. (Picture from: http://bit.ly/2IPgp7N)
This car is more interesting because it is considered never appeared before and is quite mysterious. Toyota La Coupe itself is known as a 2-door coupe concept car that has a pair of oval shaped headlamps with a slightly tapered tip and a DRL unique design.
Toyota La Coupe itself is known as a 2-door coupe concept car and powered by a hybrid system. (Picture from: http://bit.ly/2OTyvZV)
The Toyota La Coupe also has a front spoiler embedded with a blue-colored Toyota logo. It reminds us, those blue-colored logo is usually used by Toyota for their hybrid cars. So, indirectly the car has been known to use environmentally friendly powertrain.

Then on the back is more unique than the front. The car's rear section looks like a reflection from the front. It's just with the use of different forms of rear lights. There are very few interior photos, and of the few that exist, they only show small sections of the interior such as the instrument cluster and centre stack.
Toyota La Coupe features a rarely seen styling feature with the front and rear lights being virtually identical. (Picture from: http://bit.ly/32o6VIk)
Judging off these pictures, the interior is very basic, with two circular digital displays showing only essential information such as speed, fuel level, current gear and battery level. This also indicates that the La Coupe is a hybrid.

But until now everything is still in a mystery. But that's not the end of the story. What's interesting is the fact that Toyota made this design proposal in the first place.
Toyota La Coupe is very futuristic with many smooth, flowing lines creating a rounded, aerodynamic shape. (Picture from: http://bit.ly/32o6VIk)
So while the design of the La Coupe will not be seen in the showroom, it still opens the possibility that Toyota, indeed, contemplates a middle-engined coupe at least.
There has been talks of a new Celica or MR2 in the past. In fact, Toyota Gazoo Racing chief Tetsuya Tada said that he is keen on bringing in a third Toyota sports car. But as to what it will be, it will be a long wait for the answer, if ever it comes at all. *** [EKA | FROM VARIOUS SOURCES | SUPRAMKV | CARSCOOPS | AUTOINDUSTRIYA | DRIVETRIBE]

Mercedes-Benz vision of the future luxury sedan

If you want to know what luxury sedan looks like in the future, then you can see it in the figure of the Mercedes-Benz Vision EQS, which was recently launched at the 2019 Frankfurt Motor Show. And the Mercedes-Benz Vision EQS is a decisive statement of the German auto giant to bring premium quality vehicles and drive as you wish in the future.

Built with an extraordinary engineering, emotional designing by uses luxurious materials and carries the individual driving comfort concept. Because according to the German automotive giant, a luxury has also become part of individual freedom now and in the future.

By design, the Vision EQS seems to have no edges or what this German company calls the "lightbelt" structure. Where the car headlights use Digital Light technology which has 2 holographic lens modules so that it can produce unlimited light variations.
Mercedes-Benz Vision EQS concept has debuted at the 2019 Frankfurt International Motor Show. (Picture from: http://bit.ly/2m9XvQn)
Due to the car is also claimed as a vehicle that can communicate. Through a 360-degree luminescence, and also through digital LED matrix grille and headlights Digital Light enables the car to communicate with the other vehicles and the surrounding environment.

The digital grille panel being the world's first to give a sign, where the light matrix consists of 188 circuit boards, and each carrying 5 LEDs and a single star. While on the back there are 229 star-shaped LEDs that able to produce a unique display as well.

Mercedes-Benz Vision EQS moves by using 2 electric motors capable of producing power up to 476 hp and torque of 760 Nm. So that makes it able to accelerate from 0 to 100 kph in 4.5 seconds and can be run to top speed up to 200 kph. The electric power came from the batteries are stored on the floor.
Mercedes-Benz Vision EQS's interior is inspired by yachts that can be seen from the dashboard blends with the body. (Picture from: http://bit.ly/2m9XvQn)
And its power of battery is believed to be equivalent to super sports car capabilities. If the battery is in a fully charged condition, then this car is claimed to have a cruising capability of up to 700 km. And for the fast charging only in 20 minutes has able to fill to 80% of its battery capacity.

The Vision EQS's interior is inspired by yachts that can be seen from the dashboard blends with the body and design that surrounds the passengers like a yacht cabin. According to the German auto giant, in the future Mercedes-Benz cars will take inspiration from this design. Not to forget, in this car  includes an MBUX voice control system combined with a screen that can appear from behind the dashboard and ambient color with Connected Light technology.

The interior material chosen by Mercedes-Benz is made of Dinamica microfiber which is made from recycled PET plastic bottles. This material is combined with artificial leather which has a look like Nappa leather. Finally, the car ceiling is made of material taken from the recycling of ocean plastic wastes.
The platform used by Mercedes-Benz for Vision EQS is also designed as a modular platform that can be shortened and extended as needed. So this platform can be used for other types of vehicles. Talking about a future car is incomplete without an autonomous driving system. 

And the Mercedes-Benz Vision EQS is also equipped with the Level 3 autonomous driving system with modular sensor design that allows it to be developed further into a fully autonomous vehicle. *** [EKA | FROM VARIOUS SOURCES | MERCEDES-BENZ | MOTOR1]
