2014 Ferrari F12 Berlinetta vs 2014 Chevrolet Corvette C7 vs 2013 Porsche 911 C4S! [Head 2 Head Episode 42]

On this episode of Head 2 Head, Carlos Lago and Randy Pobst restage our annual Best Driver’s Car competition with this year’s winning Porsche 911 Carrera 4S plus two contenders that missed the initial dance, the all-new Chevrolet Corvette Stingray and the explosive, exotic Ferrari F12 Berlinetta.

The Ferrari is the most powerful car we’ve ever taken around Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca with its ferocious 6.3-liter 731 horsepower V-12.

The Corvette comes packing the latest version of GM’s venerable small block, a 6.2-liter cam-in-block V-8 that kicks out 460 hp and 465 pound-feet of torque.

The Porsche and its relatively tiny 3.8-liter flat-6 might seem out gunned, but remember that for the last two years the 911 has beaten back every BDC challenger we’ve thrown at it.

Does the Corvette have what it takes to dethrone the 911? Does the wailing Ferrari? Watch and find out!

Here goes. Two of the greatest Ferraris thrashed as intended. This was one of the best days of my life.

The Testarossa Presence

For a supercar, the Testarossa deserves much more respect than it garners. Its beauty has been overlooked by some in favor of the Countach. Now discounted to a fraction of its original price, it waits humbly for a return to grace.

Vintage car collector Joe Ventura waits along with it. In the meantime, he’s lucky enough to live daily with this beautiful redhead.

Marco Mattiacci (Ferrari North America CEO): “Mexico is the New China”

According to Mattiacci, the massive growth anticipated in revenue and manufacturing is not necessarily due to Ferrari, but more to the expansion of the auto industry in the last 13 years because of dramatic wealth creation, increased appetite for industry and important investments from abroad.

The Ferrari North America CEO said he was astounded by Mexico demand for the LaFerrari, the brand’s most exclusive model that will be built in a limited edition of 499 units.

“When we launched the new LaFerrari we are positively surprised that sadly we now have on-hand a list of 15 millionaires and billionaires who want to request that car,” Mattiacci said. As you probably know, the entire production of LaFerrari was sold out long before the car was revealed. “I can tell you that in 2003 when we launched Enzo in Mexico was not having that kind of request. That’s a big indicator,” he added.

Jay Kay Pays Visit to Maranello to See the New LaFerrari
As an Enzo owner and a die-hard Ferrari enthusiast and collector, Grammy Award-winning English musician, and lead singer of the acid jazz band Jamiroquai, is always welcome at the carmaker’s headquarters in Maranello. He recently paid a special visit to Ferrari’s offices to take a look at its latest top-of-the-range supercar, the rather awkwardly-named LaFerrari.
He used the opportunity to take a first-hand look at the LaFerrari and “the characteristics that make it unique in the world: technical innovation, performance, futuristic styling and the special feeling one gets from driving it,” wrote The Official Ferrari Magazine.
As it happened during Jay Kay’s previous visit to Maranello, he was welcomed by Ferrari president Luca di Montezemolo. Obviously, Jay Kay had only good things to say about Ferrari’s new halo car. “It’s an amazing car and, just looking at it makes you want to drive it. I think it’s hard to imagine such a concentration of style, technology, performance and excitement all in the one package,” the artist said.
Taking that into account, is it possible that Jay Kay came to Maranello to choose interior materials and options for his own LaFerrari? We don’t know if he’s actually one of the lucky 499 owners, but he sure fits the description of the rare Ferrari collector.
