This Might be the Ferrari 488 GTO
Leaked long before you were supposed to see itFor almost a year, we've heard rumors that Ferrari is developing a track-focused version of the 488 GTB. Nothing has been confirmed yet, but as much as we enjoy driving the regular 488, the possibility of a lighter, more powerful, hardcore version certainly has our attention. Supposedly, the new car, potentially called the 488 GTO, is scheduled to be revealed at this year's Geneva Motor Show, but it looks like a photo has already leaked.
Among the finds was an 1967 Ferrari 275 GTB, one of only a handful built with an alloy body. Amazingly, the svelte silver coupe only has 13,000 miles on the clock. Under the hood is a two-cam V12 designed by Gioacchino Colombo, sporting three twin-throat Weber carburetors.
Similar cars in have sold in the $5-8 million range, though those examples were in pristine condition, had six twin-barrel downdraft carbs and historic pedigrees. This one is a little less than pristine.
Sitting next to the Ferrari was another once in a lifetime find: a completely unmolested 1966 Shelby Cobra 427 with only 19,001 miles showing on the odometer. The chassis number identifies the roadster as one of approximately 100 built equipped with a 428-cubic-inch engine rather than a 427.
Rare Find: Very First 1969 Ford Mustang Mach 1 Ordered With Super Cobra Jet V-8, Drag Pack & 4.30 Gears
He had always wanted a 1969 Mach 1. What neither Mike nor the seller knew at the time was that this 428 SCJ was the very first Super Cobra Jet with 4.30 gears ever ordered. Carl Beasley Ford in York, Pennsylvania, did the honors.
According to legend, the substitution was either a cost-saving measure by the car’s builder, Carrol Shelby, or due to Ford’s inability to supply enough of the more powerful, race-proven 427s.
The owner of the cars drove them into the garage following the motorcycle death of his trusted mechanic and personal friend. Another suitable mechanic was not found, and the years rolled by.
Though in an upscale neighborhood, the garage in which the vehicles were stored was recently condemned by the city, giving the cars’ owner mere weeks to find a new home after 26 years of storage.
Also inside the building is a 1976 Triumph TR6 with only 9,000 miles, a propane-powered 1978 Morgan Plus 8 with only 3,000 miles, and a mid-1980s BMW 325ix.

No electric Ferraris before 2022, says Marchionne .
Ferrari is readjusting its electric car timeline. Earlier, the company's chairmanAs recently as January's NAIAS show in Detroit, Marchionne stated, "If there's an electric supercar to be built, then Ferrari will be the first." Automotive News reports that Marchionne recalibrated that claim in a company meeting on April 13, saying that a full-electric Ferrari "is not relevant at the moment." If there will be an electric Ferrari, it will be announced after 2022. Earlier than any of that, Marchionne had called an electric Ferrari "an obscene concept," adding, "You would have to shoot me first.
