Ferrari’s whirlwind summer is still booming – with more global activities and launches than ever before this year.
The IPO of Ferrari could come any day this Fall. We’ll have around a week’s notice, per NYSE schedules.
The media site is full of gorgeous snapshots into the fast life of Ferrari owners lately — including the week-long International Cavalcade, visit to the Green Hell, and even a special birthday gift: an FXX K in Giallo Modena for an American buyer.
She started hitting Fiorano hard right after the presentation ceremony — achieving a 1-min, 20-second lap that is close to the car’s max pace in expert hands.

Google executive Benjamin Sloss presents his wife with a stunning FXX K
Maranello, 28 August 2015 – Since he bought the 599 XX auctioned to raise funds in the wake of the Emilia earthquake disaster in 2012, we’ve all known that Benjamin Sloss is a very generous guy. But now he’s proved his big-heartedness once again by presenting his wife, Christine, with a truly unique birthday gift.
Ben told Christine he would be bringing her to Fiorano to do a little lapping in their 599 XX as a birthday treat. And he did just that. But that was far from all he had planned.
In fact, when they arrived at the track, Christine found a beautiful FXX K, clothed, like all their Ferraris in a yellow livery, waiting for her. Naturally enough Christine, who is also a real petrolhead and fine GT driver, lost no time in getting into her racing suit and putting her latest acquisition through its paces on the track.
Christine found the FXX K incredibly communicative, responsive, and confidence inspiring, and extraordinarily fast. After just a few laps she was running 1’20”, with a passenger on board, very close to the Fiorano FXX K lap record!
Red Dot Awards for product design also for LaFerrari and California T
Maranello, March 30 – Three Ferraris have won the prestigious Red Dot Award, the world’s leading product design competition which celebrates its 60th anniversary this year.
The recent FXX-K has been named Red Dot Best of the Best for the top design quality and ground-breaking design, while both the California T and LaFerrari were also singled out by the international jury for Red Dot Awards for the high quality of their design.
Approximately 5,000 innovative entries from 56 nations were in the competition. The work of the Ferrari Style Centre headed by Flavio Manzoni was selected by an international jury made up of respected designers, design professors and specialist journalists from 25 countries. The awards ceremony takes place in Essen, Germany, on June 29 next.
