Engine and performance

The Ferrari F1 GG50 has special modifications inspired by Formula 1 (F1), to improve performance. It uses a 65 degree V12 naturally aspirated petrol engine. The engine develops peak power of 540 horsepower (400 kW), which is 94 horsepower (70 kW) per litre. The compression ratio is 11.2:1. The GG50 uses a sequential mode automatic transmission.[1]

Design

The GG50 is a 2+2 coupé "supercar". Most of the elements of the interior design are from the similar Ferrari 612 Scaglietti, as well as part of the exterior design. The exterior body is around four inches shorter and has a differently shaped nose.[2] Some cues, such as the steering wheel, derive from Ferrari's F1 vehicles of the past. Unique parts of the GG50 are its dashboard and the fact that the GG50 uses the Pioneer AVIC–X1R satellite navigation system.[3]

Ferrari 612 Scaglietti

The Ferrari 612 Scaglietti (Italian pronunciation: [skaʎˈʎetti])(Type F137) is a 2+2 coupé grand tourer manufactured by Italian automobile manufacturer Ferrari between 2004 and 2010. It was designed to replace the smaller 456; its larger size makes it a true 4 seater with adequate space in the rear seats for adults.

The design, especially the large side scallops and the headlights, pays homage to the coach built 1954 Ferrari 375 MM that director Roberto Rossellini had commissioned for his wife, Ingrid Bergman.

Ford Mustang variants

Ford and several third party companies offered many modified versions of the highly popular Mustang in order to cater to specific portions of the marketplace outside of the mainstream. High-performance enthusiasts seek more powerful, sharper handling, sports cars, while collectors and purists seek limited production and alternate or nostalgic styling, such as is commonly found on many commemorative editions. Still, others were made purely for experimental concepts such as the McLaren M81 (turbo) and SVO, which later influenced production model design. Most variants include both performance upgrades, and unique cosmetic treatments that are typically minimal to maintain the familiar appearance of a stock Mustang. Although most of these Mustang variants were aimed at enthusiasts, an exception was the Special Service Package (or SSP), which was designed specifically for law enforcement.
