Video: Watch a Ferrari being hand-made, start to finish

Revealed: This is exactly how a Ferrari car is built

Ferrari is one of the few automotive brands that everyone recognizes. The prancing horse is a symbol that’s earns global recognition, regardless of location or status. That wasn’t always the case, as the Italian automaker had a humble start with racing vehicles. Now, Ferrari is a luxury brand that makes some of the most sought-after supercars in the world.

It’s no secret that Ferrari has been steadily increasing the number of cars it builds annually over the past few years. The automaker once limited production to 7,000 units annually, but in 2021, Ferrari sold over 11,000 vehicles for its best year ever. While Ferrari is building more cars than ever, it still agonizes over all the small details to make exclusive vehicles that feel rare.

In the video below by Engineering World, you can follow along as the team at Ferrari builds a few different supercars. The video covers the entire process that includes assembling the engine, preparing the chassis, painting the body, assembling the body, hand-stitching the interior, and quality checks. In roughly eight minutes, you’ll get an idea of what goes into building a Ferrari.

One of the more standout things about this video is how most of the work is done by hand. From smoothing out the body, painting the vehicle, installing the electrical components, assembling the larger parts of the vehicles, and putting together the leather cabin, Ferrari’s workers play a large role in putting the cars together.

With vehicles starting above $200,000, Ferraris supercars are out of reach for the majority of people. But for the few that can afford one of Maranello’s finest, they’re getting a car with incredible performance that’s built by people who care about cars.

Subaru introduced the new WRX TR version of its enthusiast's compact sports sedan in October but only recently announced pricing for the TR and the rest of the 2024 WRX lineup. There are five 2024 WRX trim levels with prices ranging from $33,855 to $45,335, including destination and delivery.

All WRX trims use the same 2.4 liter turbocharged four-cylinder Boxer engine that produces 271 horsepower at 5,600 RPM. The motor pulls with up to 258 pound-feet of torque in a broad powerband from 2,000 to 5,200 RPM, which means you have ample power to accelerate hard from a standing start right on up to beyond reasonable highway speeds. The WRX top speed is electronically limited to 134 mph.

The Rolls Royce Spectre starts at $422,750 with a range of up to 291 miles
The Rolls Royce Spectre is the most luxurious EV ever made with a price tag of $422,750.

The Rolls Royce Spectre is one of the most anticipated EVs coming out this year. It’s almost as quick as the Rolls Royce Wraith Coupe, with an acceleration of 0 to 60 mph in 4.4 seconds! In fact, it’s the most aerodynamic car ever built by Rolls Royce. But what makes it special as a top-of-the-range luxurious car is that it doesn’t make any noise or vibrations since it’s an electric vehicle — a feat that the founder of Rolls Royce thought would make the perfect luxury car, but it was impractical at the time. Of course, you probably wouldn’t notice such distractions in the backseat of a gas-powered Rolls Royce, but the Spectre takes it to the next level.

Rolls Royce Spectre is the “spiritual successor” of the Phantom Coupe 
The Rolls Royce Spectre is designed to take after the Phantom Coupe that was discontinued in 2016. However, the Spectre is slightly more powerful than the Phantom Coupe, with a dual electric powertrain that can produce up to 584 horsepower. It also comes with a 102-kWh battery that can deliver a range of up to 291 miles on the standard model with 22-inch wheels. This is almost similar to the range of the BMW i7 M70.
