Commuters in Italy will have a new and very fast method of getting around the country that will open next week. A new high-speed railway is opening with a train called the Italo with a top speed of 186 mph. The train will connect Milan, Rome, and Naples and is billed as the most advanced train in Europe.
Ferrari has revealed its fastest supercar to date, the F12 Berlinetta, complete with official rendering photos and videos. The F12 Berlinetta is set to debut on the world stage at next month's Geneva Motor Show and will be replacing Ferrari's aging 599 GTB. Although we've been seeing plenty of hybrid supercars lately, this one sticks to a traditional naturally-aspirated engine---an advanced 740-horsepower V12.
When Ferrari teases its "most powerful" car ever, anyone with a taste for road-going exotica has to pay attention, and while we'll be concentrating most of our efforts on MWC 2012 at the end of the month, we'll spare a few glances to the Italian company's promised news. Set to make its much-anticipated debut on February 29, the new Ferrari is the successor to the superlative-strumming 599, caught on video in camouflage-clad form.
I already mentioned a couple of the cool cars that have surfaced at SEMA this year. Another awesome car that is on hand at the show is a Ferrari 458 Italia that has a custom wrap. The wrap was applied in partnership with Epson, Avery Dennison, and SkinWraps to showcase what you can pull off with one of the large format Epson printers.
Thrustmaster has been pushing Ferrari-themed peripherals for gamers for a while now, but the company's latest F1 wheel is the most convincing yet. A full-size replica of the Formula 1 Ferrari 2011 racing wheel designed to work with the company's T500 RS system, the eye-catching accessory includes brushed-metal paddle shifters, all the rotary knobs and buttons from the authentic car, and an easy swap system for switching between it and the original GT wheel.
I would be willing to bet that any of the people that own high powered exotic cars like Ferraris aren't able to drive the cars to 50% of their potential on dry roads, much less in rain or on ice. Ferrari wants to be sure that its owners and enthusiasts can drive their awesome Italian sports cars in the ice and show. With winter coming soon to many areas and to educate drivers, Ferrari is having a new driver's event.
Of all the things we expect from Ferrari, a shooting-brake isn't one of them, but the Italian firm has revealed its striking Ferrari FF set to go on display at the Geneva Motor Show. With a name that stands for "Ferrari Four" - a nod to both the four seats and the four-wheel drive - the FF packs a 6.262L V12 engine that can rocket it from 0-62 mph in 3.7 seconds.
What a frajabulous day of revealing leaks, first looks, and yes, HAX. There were not one, but TWO sightings of Droid 2 functionalities in the wild. The myTouch 4G was blessed with a Permaroot, and that brand new Android-to-iPhone port was granted a no-computer install and activation. Then to rather peek-a-boo moments: a Sharp ISO1 Unboxing and a Hustler app for Android. Apple tops the holiday want-lists (is anyone surprised?), the SlashGear Pad and Quill iPad case giveaway winner is revealed, and Nintendo wants to own "It's On Like Donkey Kong!" All this and some lovely FEATURES coming your way today, on The Daily Slash!
Ferrari is a name that is associated with very expensive and very fast exotic cars from Italy. The Ferrari name has been plastered onto products other than cars though with Ferrari computers from Acer. The latest device to get the Ferrari name is a hair dryer of all things.
Acer's latest Ferrari-branded notebook has pulled up, and it's an 11.6-inch ultraportable. The Acer Ferrari One has a 1.2GHz AMD Athlon 64 X2 dual-core processor under the hood, together with 4GB of DDR2 memory, a 250GB 5,400rpm hard-drive and ATI Mobility Radeon HD 3200 graphics. As with other Acer Ferrari models, there's plenty of fake carbon fiber together with a one-touch shortcut key to the supercar manufacturer's website.
