Pagani founder is the new owner of a Porsche 911 R and a Ferrari F12tdf

Sounds cool. Horacio Pagani (founder of Pagani Automobili) has just added two special cars to his exclusive collection. A Ferrari F12 TDF and a Porsche 911 R. It comes as no surprise. Actually, the supercar magnate is known for having a special liking to anything exotic.

To some though, acquiring the work of their competitors may be the last thing on their minds. Pagani has been manufacturing the world’s most exclusive supercars--- the Pagani Huayra and the Zonda. However, it’s not as if this is the first time that the Modena-based manufacturer has admired and actually bought another brand outside his firm. In fact, Pagani already owns an MSO McLaren P1, a Porsche Carrera GT and a Ford GT even before he saw these two new babies.

Porsche earlier made an exclusive offer to current 918 owners for a chance to own one of the company’s limited models. The Porsche 911 R that is. As the story goes, Pagani didn’t pass up the chance and straight away, he took them up on their amazing offer. Just like the white 911 R that was shown in Geneva the previous year, Pagani’s Porsche 911 R also has those red stripes painted along the exterior.

Porsche makes a move to try and stop 911 R flippers

We are pretty much aware that a lot of people purchase limited run cars to sell them for double or triple the price. And this always happens with whatever brand you can think of. One of the models that have been flipped by resellers is the limited-run 911 R.

And as a response to this, the man in charge of the Porsche 911 recently admitted that they came out with the GT3 Touring package at the recent Frankfurt Motor Show in September to target resellers who have been flipping their cars.

If you are a huge fan of the Porsche 911, you probably know that the original retail price of the R is $185,000. But since there are only 991 examples of this made, making it extra rare, resellers had the chance to skyrocket the prices. In fact, there are 911 Rs out there that are still up for grabs, only they cost $1.25 million now. Of course, any automaker who took their time, effort, and sweat into developing these cars would not be happy to hear this news, and that is why they came out with the Touring Pack for the 911 GT3.

For Sale: Louis Vuitton Supreme-wrapped Ferrari F12 owned by the son of an Emirati billionaire

A couple of months ago, some kid from Dubai called Rashed Belhasa, the son of a billionaire construction tycoon, got himself an expensive Ferrari F12 Berlinetta. He then decided he would have it wrapped in his favourite design - a Louis Vuitton x Supreme pattern. It seems like he has lost interest in his car already, and he now decided to put the Italian supercar up for sale.

The fifteen year old, who goes by the handle “Money Kicks” on YouTube, earned millions of followers on social media for it. Under its hood is a twelve cylinder engine.

Last summer, he actually made the headlines on most auto blogs when he showed off this model, coated in a red wrap to match his Louis Vuitton x Supreme shoes (and bags). This definitely is a head turner especially with all the hype this collaboration is getting. As he is still not at the right age to drive, he hired himself a chauffeur to drive him around.

California dealer is selling a jet black 2016 Porsche 911 R for $409,000

For a car that was just introduced in 2016, the Porsche 911 R (991 generation) is fetching a pretty high price in the resale market. Examples have changed hands for amount several times the original launch price of $184,900. In fact, a Porsche 911 R was sold by an Australian group early this year for over $900,000 (US). But now, a seller from California is selling a 911 R for half that asking price.

Ilusso, a dealer based in Costa Mesa, California, is selling a 2016 Porsche 911 R – which means it is essentially brand new -- for $409,000. This asking price is more than twice the original price of $184,900.

This particular 911 R being sold is wrapped in a jet black finish and features continuous colored stripes in dark grey over the entire mid-section. It also features a red 'Porsche' script as well as red-and-white door accents along each of its sides. It also rides on bright red 20-inch GT3 center lock wheels. Featuring a VIN (vehicle identification number) of WP0AF2A92GS195321, this 2016 Porsche 911 R only has 140 miles (225 km) on its odometer, which is the mileage of a newly driven sports car. This Porsche is number 286 of the 991 total units produced.

Any car that has been finished in Acid Green will definitely catch the attention of even the most distracted individual. So if it’s your goal to turn people’s heads, then this should be the right colour choice for you. And while there are other automakers that offer a shocking green paint finish, Porsche does a more dazzling job than any of them.

This was made possible by the Paint to Sample programme. We’re willing to bet that this photo does not give justice to the paint job as it’s said to be much more vivid in person. In fact, when comparing it to Lamborghini’s lime green, the latter looks very much subdued.

At the time of this writing, there are only two Porsche 918 Spyders that are painted in this particular hue, alongside a handful of other Porsche models, like that of the 911 R.

The Porsche 911 R is a car anyone would want even before they’ve seen it in action. For a car that’s so handsome and available for a limited time only, it is no wonder why guys easily go crazy over them. Further, the market for supercars has never been more filled with folks willing to pay more than the list price. Among the prime examples are the Ferrari 458 Speciale, a Cayman GT4 or the latest “must-have” from Porsche -- the 911 R.

Recently, a stunning Porsche 911 R with the legendary Gulf Oil racing livery was spotted online and has since become a favourite among many fans worldwide. The colour scheme is a combination of light blue and bright orange.

The viral photo, which was posted on Instagram was supposedly taken inside a Porsche showroom. Though we have no idea where exactly, those who’ve seen it first suggested that the location must be someplace in North America. Any guesses?

What is it like to drive the most powerful Ferrari? I mean a Ferrari F12 Berlinetta. The extremely expensive F12 Berlinetta comes with a 6.3 liter V12 engine, yielding 729 horsepower and 508 pound feet of toque. Pushing the F12Berlinetta to 60 miles per hour in just 3.1 seconds, with a top speed of a little over 211 miles per hour. This car definitely provides a unique driving experience for the driver with its sounds and sights.

But its not all about the engine, because looks are important too. The Ferrari F12 Berlinetta has dramatic lines around its long and low body. It was built with an aggressive face that represents the car’s personality. A perfect mix of aesthetics and aerodynamics.

Well, if all that isn’t enough, then this might interest you. A limited edition, custom body kit for the F12 Berlinetta, exclusively made by DMC. The extremely special body kit will only be limited to 10 units. So how does that sound to you?

Ferrari has since been part of the elite circle of automakers producing the world’s best performing cars. One of its most well-known creations in the field of performance is the F12berlinetta. This grand tourer produces impressive records thanks to its powerful 6.3-liter V12 engine that can conjure power of up to 730 horsepower (544 kilowatts) and 520 lb.-ft. of torque. It can even reach a maximum speed of 211 mph and sprint from 0 to 62 mph in only 3.1 seconds. All these, plus the half-a-million-dollar price tag and rarity, gives the F12berlinetta the rights to exude an aura of exclusivity.

But of course, all good things must come to an end, and the F12berlinetta’s reign as the leading grand tourer must be turned over to a younger successor. However, even though the F12berlinetta was overthrown by the Ferrari 812 Superfast, it remains to be one of the most impressive grand tourers of this generation; and to top it all off, one lucky F12berlinetta owner handed his prized possession to Carlex Design to make some modifications to enhance this already magnificent vehicle.

There is no reason to feel bad that the F12berlinetta had to be replaced by the 812 Superfast since the latter is a descendant of the former, specifically the limited-edition F12berlinetta F12tdf variant, yet taking on some “stronger cues” from the 365 GTB/4 Daytona. The 812 Superfast is powered by a 6.5-liter V12 engine, producing 789 horsepower (588 kilowatts) and 530 lb.-ft. of torque (768 Nm) of torque; just a slight difference from the F12berlinetta’s. A sprint of 0 to 62 mph (or 100 kph) is achievable in only 2.9 seconds, with a top speed of over 211 mph (340 kph); a slight difference in acceleration time, but the same top speed as the F12berlinetta.

When Porsche announced the 911 R (991 generation), the brand said that this limited edition model would only have 991 samples. With the production model limited in number, it was easy to predict that the price of a Porsche 911 R would shoot up significantly in the open market. In fact, Porsche has sold out the limited edition version of the 911.

When it was still being offered as a new unit fresh from factory, the Porsche 911 R was fetching a starting price of $184,900 each. However, when options are availed and taken into account, a new Porsche 911 R would cost more than $184,900. But even if all options are added, a new Porsche 911 R wouldn’t have a price of nearly $1 million. But in the open market, a group is actually selling Porsche 911 R close to this humongous amount.

Here comes Supercar Advocates, a group that purchases, takes deliveries and reviews sports cars, and super cars including those made by Ferrari, Porsche and Lamborghini. It is selling a Porsche 911 R – pretty new based on its somewhat pristine exterior appearance and its odometer figure – through Australian automotive sales Web site Carsales. According to Supercar Advocates, this unit is a 2017 Porsche 911 R that has been only driven for 68 kilometers – just the mileage you could get during delivery of a vehicle. Wrapped in white exterior finish, this limited edition sports car comes with 911 R stripes in green as well as green side stripes with Porsche script in black. Likewise, this Porsche 911 R being sold by Supercar Advocates features full bucket seats in leather.

There was quite some fuzz when suddenly a yellow Ferrari with a number of similarities with the Ferrari F12berlinetta showed up during the Ferrari Finali Mondiali event at the Daytona International Speedway. There were speculations it was a one-off special order derived from the F12berlinetta, but back then, there were no confirmed information from Ferrari. But now, Ferrari has spoken up about its latest one-off creation – the SP 275 RW Competizione.

According to Ferrari, the one-off SP 275 RW Competizione is underpinned by the chassis that underpins the F12berlinetta, which is considered as one of the most beautiful Ferrari sports cars of all time. Taking care of the design of the SP 275 RW Competizione is none other than Ferrari’s own Styling Centre, with the cooperation of Italian car design firm Pininfarina SpA.

As implied by its moniker, the Ferrari SP 275 RW Competizione takes inspiration from the Ferrari 275 GTB, which is considered as one of the most iconic V12 berlinettas in the 1960s. In fact, the SP 275 RW Competizione could be considered as a modern take on the 275 GTB, but with some personal flavors from the person who ordered it – a certain dentist from Florida named Rick Workman, hence the rw initials. In fact, Workman had initials on the one-off Ferrari SP 275 RW Competizione.

Thanks to several spy images, Italian sports car maker Ferrari is thought to be developing an updated version of the F12 Berlinetta. There have been reports speculating the possible specs as well as the moniker of this new F12, but so far, Ferrari has yet to confirm or deny the existence of this new sports car.

However, a member of the Ferrari Chat forums claimed that there is indeed an updated F12, and it was recently shown to a private group of people at the Ferrari’s Fiorano test track. Two versions of the updated F12, as claimed, were shown during the presentation: a model and a fully functional revised F12. This member also claimed that he was present during the presentation, in which the carmaker unveiled quite a number of details about the updated F12.

While Ferrari has been quiet about the name of this updated F12, the forum member disclosed the carmaker referred to the model as the F152M and V12 Sport. In addition, the updated F12 will have a new engine as its core – a V12 powerplant with a displacement of around 6.5 liters. The forum member went on to specify that this engine would be a naturally aspirated unit that is able to deliver up to 800 hp (597 kW) of output and up to 530 lb.-ft. (718 Nm) of torque.

On February 8, 2017, a special version of the Porsche 911 R limited edition – one that pays tribute to legendary actor Steve McQueen – would change hands. It is because this PTS (Paint to Sample) Porsche 911 R McQueen tribute would be placed under the hammer at RM Sotheby’s auction event in Paris, France on that very day.

Porsche first unveiled the 2017 Porsche 911 R at the 2016 Geneva Motor Show with only 991 units produced and made available. Typically – when the PTS option is not availed – the 911 R will feature a livery the same as the 1967 911 R and will come with GT3 foundations and engine. The latest 911 R is essentially a 911 GT3 except for the fact that its 4.0-liter engine is not paired to a PDK transmission and features no rear wing. From the front end to the rear bumpers, the 911 R and the 911 GT3 look the same. Elements like its side skirts, rear fenders, wheels, and the mirrors are the same for the two models.

However, the absence of the PDK transmission means that the new 911 R is fitted with a six-speed transmission. While the PDK transmission boasts of quicker shift times and smoother gear changes, many see the manual transmission as vital elements for a vehicle to be a true driver’s car.

As the only car modification team from Vancouver to have modified and shipped exotic cars anywhere in the world, SR Auto Group took a Ferrari and tweaked it to offer outstanding design and performance. The Ferrari F12 Berlinetta has received a Novitec Rosso upgrade. Apart from the car’s amazing features, we have to say that the Ferrari F12’s hot set of wheels has been the most impressive part of their set-up.

Among Novitec Rosso’s latest accoutrements are the F12 Berlinetta’s N3 five-double spoke forged wheels. These wheels are painted in Black with Matte and Gloss coatings on top. Ferrari’s signature OEM centre cap comes in the same yellow as the body paint while the Black accents complement the F12’s overall bodyworks, colour and design.

SR Auto Group has been building special concepts for the finest exotic cars and luxury vehicles. To provide the car its unique identity, the company’s “after market upgrades” have several options available. In most cases, the modified car reflects the owner’s unique sense of style.

The rear engine layout is considerably Porsche 911’s ultimate selling point. Over the years, the arrangement of the engine has proven to be more capable for racing. But then, Porsche apparently gave its 911 a rather unusual overhaul. The latest Porsche 911 RSR (yes, the same car that would take part in the “24 Hours of Le Mans”) now has a new mid-engine.

But that’s not all. There are 19 other racing events in the GTE category where the 2017 Porsche 911 RSR will be part of. So this must be something really big.

According to Porsche, the much larger diffuser at the rear was in place after they positioned the 4.0 Litre horizontally arranged 6-cylinder engine at the middle. Porsche realised this new layout significantly improves handling and provides better balance as compared with the rear engine layout.

Any Ferrari creation is considered a unique car. That includes the Ferrari F12berlinetta, a front mid-engine, rear-wheel-drive grand tourer that made its debut at the 2012 Geneva Motor Show, replacing the 599 series grand tourers.

Named "The Supercar of the Year 2012" by the Top Gear magazine, the V12-powered F12berlinetta is really an exclusive and unique car. But European design house Bengala Automotive felt it needed more.

Bengala Automotive is inaugurating its new Privilege Program with the launch of the F12 Caballeria, which is basically a bespoke carbon fiber custom vehicle derived from Ferrari F12berlinetta.

As pleasurable as it may seem to destroy supercars in video games such as GTA (Grand Theft Auto), it’s not as much fun when it’s your supercar getting wrecked in real life. Most enthusiasts would probably cringe upon looking at a supercar going through unpaved roads or taking a dip in flooded waters.

Videos of supercars have gone across the internet strutting their stuff around paved streets but one particular video has been going around showing a group of wealthy Chinese supercar enthusiasts blasting their way across the Sichuan-Tibet Highway.

Apparently, it is unlike being driven through the streets of Paris or Germany because the supercars are driven through unpaved roads causing a bit, well, more than a bit of damage in to the supercars. Yes, this is a cringe-worthy write-up and is not for the faint hearted.

The 2017 Porsche 911 R was first unveiled at the 2016 Geneva Motor Show. Only 991 units will be produced for this line of 911 R and will be expected to cost more than the GT3 RS. The newest 911 R will come with the same 1967 911 R livery and will be using GT3 foundations and engine.

911 R is practically a GT3 except for the PDK transmission and rear wing. The two are nearly identical from the front down to its rear bumpers – which include the rear fenders, wheels, side skirts and even the mirrors. However one may think of the 2017 911 R to be similar to the GT3 but there are several differences. Instead of a wing, the 911 R engine lid has a conventional grille and a retractable spoiler taken from Carrera models as well as a redesigned front spoiler lip and rear underbody diffuser.

The 911 R is 50 kg lighter than the GT3 because of the material used for its front and rear hoods and fenders (made of carbon fiber) as well as its magnesium-made roof. The 911 R has a 4.0-liter engine that can produce 500 horsepower and 339 lb.-ft. of torque similar to the GT3 RS.

At the 2016 Geneva Motor Show, Porsche wowed car dealers, owners and enthusiasts with the newest addition to its line of sports cars – the Porsche 911 R. It was designed to showcase the traditional Porsche with a twist, depending on its owner. The 911 R is designed so that customers are given the opportunity to give their 911 Rs a personal touch. Before we discuss the different ways of how you can customize your own Porsche 911 R, let us first look into the things that set it apart from other sports cars. The new Porsche 911 R still comes in the classic 911 appearance but with the GT motor racing technology.

Just like the Porsche 911 GT3 RS, the 911 R is powered by a 4.0-liter six-cylinder boxer engine and was developed in the Porsche Motorsport workshop. It can provide a maximum output of 500 horsepower at 8,250 rpm and a peak torque of 460 Nm at 6,250 rpm; these allow the 911 R to hit 0 to 60 mph in 3.7 seconds only.

Furthermore, the Porsche 911 R has an estimated top speed of 201 mph. No bad, huh? The Porsche 911 R is offered with a six-speed manual sports transmission only and no automatic transmissions for this vehicle. For it to be a more interactive and responsive experience, the 911 R features a short gearshift travel. It also features an NEDC fuel consumption of 21.2 mpg or 13.3 liters per 100 kilometers. How efficient is that?

Porsche has unveiled at the 2016 Geneva International Motor Show the new Porsche 911 R – a race-bred road-going history-inspired sports car. It is a reincarnation of the original 911 R that Porsche launched in 1967.

This original version has participated in a number of iconic road races during its time, like the Tour de France and Targa Florio. It was part of a limited production series from the German sports car maker. Nearly half a century later, Porsche has reincarnated this iconic sports car. Thus, like the original version, the new Porsche 911 R offer pure driving experience.

Porsche will only build 991 examples of the 911 R around the world. The new Porsche 911 could also be specified with the optional air conditioning system and the audio system.

Ferrari has created a new car that’s designed for truly extreme road racing. Dubbed as the F12tdf, this new car is reminiscent of the 1950s and the 1960s such as 1956 250 GT Berlinetta, when Ferrari was the biggest name in the Tour de France road race, ensuring that the F12tdf will have capabilities that make it worthy of competing in the race.

Hence, the automaker built a car that offers the greatest performance without sacrificing handling and user comfort. Just like the cars that endured the legendary endurance competition, the new Ferrari car has been designed with an eye for meeting demanding conditions in both ordinary roads and the race track.

Ferrari has worked hard to introduce new features in critical areas of the car’s design, particularly the engine, aerodynamics and vehicle dynamics. Fans of extreme road driving will find the improved acceleration, roadholding and agility of the car as definitely the best in its class.
