Ferrari F40, 1987. Today, July 21, is the 30th anniversary of the official presentation of the F40 at the Civic Centre in Maranello, now home to the Ferrari Museum. Created to celebrate the company’s 40th anniversary, it was the last car “signed off” by founder Enzo Ferrari. 

Ferrari has gathered together the memories of three of its creators: Ermanno Bonfiglioli, then Head of Special Projects, Leonardo Fioravanti, a designer for Pininfarina, and test driver Dario Benuzzi.

Ermanno Bonfiglioli, who as Head of Special Projects was responsible for supercharged engines, has not forgotten the excitement of that 21 July: “I have never experienced a presentation like that of the F40. When the car was unveiled, a buzz passed through the room followed by thunderous applause. No one, except for close associates of Enzo Ferrari, had yet seen it. Indeed, the company had cloaked the development and testing of that car in unusual secrecy. And the surprise at such a stylistic leap was almost shock. The timeframe was also unusual, within the very short arc of 13 months, the chassis and bodywork moving ahead quickly and at the same pace as the powertrain. It was June 1986 when we began designing the engine of the project F 120 A. The 8-cylinder 478 hp twin-turbo was a derivative of the 288 GTO Evoluzione’s, but a number of innovative contents enabled the F40 to become the first production Ferrari to exceed 320 km/h. We paid maximum attention to the weight of the engine, thanks also to the extensive use of magnesium, such as oil sump, cylinder-head covers, intake manifolds, and gearbox bell-housing were in this material that cost five times as much as aluminium alloy and that was never used in such quantities in subsequent production cars. This is just a small example of this car’s "difference”.

Leonardo Fioravanti was a designer at Pininfarina when he was invited by Enzo Ferrari to Fiorano to try the 288 GTO Evoluzione: “when il Commendatore asked for my opinion on this experimental prototype, which due to regulatory issues never went into production, I didn’t hide my enthusiasm as an amateur driver for the incredible acceleration of its 650 hp. It was then that he first talked to me of his desire to produce a “true Ferrari”. We knew, as he knew, that it would be his last car. We threw ourselves headlong into the work. Extensive research at the wind tunnel went into aerodynamic optimisation, to achieve coefficients appropriate for the most powerful Ferrari road car ever. Its style matches its performance: the low bonnet with a very tiny overhang, the NACA air vents and the rear spoiler, which my colleague Aldo Brovarone placed at right angles, made it famous. If I had to point out one overriding reason for the success of the F40, I would say that its line succeeded in instantly transmitting the exceptionality of its technical content: speed, lightness, and performance.“

Dario Benuzzi, a Ferrari’s long-term test driver, participated in an arduous and meticulous testing job: "The handling of the first prototypes was poor. To tame the power of the engine and make it compatible with a road model, we needed to subject every aspect of the car to countless tests: from the turbochargers to the braking system, from the shock absorbers to the tyres. The result was an excellent aerodynamic load and high stability even at high speed. Another important aspect was the tubular steel frame with Kevlar reinforcement panels, which provides three times more torsional rigidity than that of other cars of the period, and a bodywork made mainly of composite materials that reduced weight to just 1100 kg. We obtained precisely the car we wanted, with few comforts and no compromises. With no power steering, power brakes or electronic devices, it demands the skill and commitment of the driver but generously repays it with a unique driving experience. Steering precision, road holding, braking power and intensity of acceleration reached unmatched levels for a road car.

Volkswagen Golf Mk 3 VR6 Highline, 1992. The name VR6 comes from a combination of V engine (German: V-Motor), and the German word “Reihenmotor” (meaning inline or straight engine). It shares a common cylinder head for the 2 banks of cylinders offset at an angle of 15°. The VR6 engine is not currently used by Volkswagen in Europe and is only available in the US version of the Passat

I just kinda draw black hat as a cylinder?? Like his entire head as a shapely cyclinder where I put bends in where I plan to have his head and hat be separate and draw his face. That or draw a circle then draw his head and when the hat comes, I continue the hat from the head where the brim is?? idk if my jumble helps or not but im trying m best

how is this dad

Porsche 4.0L air-cooled flat-six with 4-valve cylinder heads, showing CFD optimized ram-air induction system via rear side window opening and Inconel / titanium exhaust system. Restored and modified by Singer Vehicle Design and Williams Advanced Engineering.

Scott Blattner, Commissioning Owner: “My journey with Singer Vehicle Design began with the restoration of two coupes. In 2016 these were joined by my Targa, which recently ran in the famous Hill Climb at Goodwood Festival of Speed. I became intrigued by the possibility of further evolution and I’m very excited to be sharing the first details of the engine for my car.”


Quick tip write up for cuphead and mugman heads. Here you go @kazupazu (Not really a tutorial)
These were pretty much eyeballed in a short period of time but between 3 pwople and some pizza It was fun.
Essentially the base shape of both heads are a dome with a cylinder.
I cant give patterns since we eyeballed everything but the dome by far is what took up most of the time.
I would recomend watching Evil Ted Smiths video on making eva foam domes
The dome should be large enough to cover up to your forehead so that you can see out of the mouth. It is really importand to get the dome in a near perfect hemispere because if the dome is more then half a spere it will push on the cylinder and warp the head. Take your time with the dome its pretty much the core of the head and it will determine the dimentions of everything esle. Once you have ypur dome figured out the cylinder is next. Its pretty simple just make a cylinder the same diameter as the edge of the dome. A eva foam ruler may come in handy. Try to keep your seems as nice as possible when glueing and heat shaping everthing. The handles and straws were made from various pool noodles. The faces were drawn on and we used that to template the eyes and get an idea of how big the noses would be. I 3d modeled and printed both noses but the can be made with eva foam as well or model magic. The eyes were rounded with a dremel and glued over the drawn parts We used colored duck tape to color the straws. But we painted the handels and heads with latex paint. After mayby 9 or 10 coats of latex paint to get everything sealed and opaque we painted the eye and nose with acrylic paint.

Here is a list of things we used
1/4inch eva foam.
Pool noodles.
A hot knife
A heat gun
Contact cement
Latex paint.
Acrylic paint.
Black mesh
Colored duck tape
Music and pizza.
And friends @the-deadly-donut @skeleton-snowflake

i don’t have a “turbocharger” or a “supercharger” i have six electric air compressors in my trunk hooked up to an alternator I took off a semi truck. the only drawbacks are when I get on boost my headlights flicker off and I have to replace cracked cylinder heads monthly and after a while on boost it sounds like I’m transporting beehives but it’s all worth it to show guys at car shows how my boost gauge stays at 50 psi all the time

Ferrari 250 Testa Rossa, 1957. The original Testa Rossa (the name translates as Red Head, a reference to the car’s red cylinder heads) was a race car which dominated the World Sports Car Championship of the late 50s. In total 34 cars were built by Carrozzeria Scaglietti between 1957 and 1961
